Gilles on BBC 6 Music // 21st July 2012

July 24, 2012

For the first time since joining BBC 6Muisc, Gilles is joined live in the 6 Music hub by Will Holland, of Quantic fame and Mario Galeano, the force behind the band Frente Cumbiero, who have joined forces to create the Ondatrópica project.

This project, which is supported by the British Council, exists to explore and expand the tropical sound of Colombia in its rawest form and to marry it with the cool sound of London.

They perform two live tracks from their self-titled debut album, out on Soundway Recordings and provide an excusive 20 minuet edition to the Backroom Babylon with a box of 7 inches each.

Gilles makes Bloodlines family connection with tracks from Linda Lewis and her brother Paul Jason Fredericks, Album of The Week is courtesy of Nas and it’s a double Do Over this week featuring Del La Soul and Pete Rock. Connecting the dots, worldwide.
