This week Gilles presents a pre-Christmas best of 2012 special, covering the most requested songs, and the tracks that produced the biggest buzz on the show, since he joined BBC Radio 6 Music in April. Some soul nuggets from Philip Owusu and Hiatus Kaiyote, the biggest house tunes from Todd Terje and Ashley Beadle, through to oddities from the Meridian Brothers and Paco Zambrano. It’s truly a worldwide selection, with music from Peru, Colombia, Sweden, Norway, France, Ghana, Cuba, the US, the UK and lots more.
