Gilles on BBC 6Music // Saturday 12th May

May 14, 2012

Gilles is joined by the man behind The Specials and The Spatial AKA Orchestra, Jerry Dammers, touching on music that he’s produced over the years, as well as a varied selection of music that has inspired him and his projects; from Madlib and Sun Ra through to Les Baxter and the Skatalites. Gilles’ Album Of The Week comes from Scrimshire -The Hollow. The Do Over features a cover of Afro Blue by Robert Glasper & Erykah Badu, and Bloodlines showcases the McFerrin clan. Not forgetting the Backroom Babylon mix for the final half hour getting you ready for Saturday night -probably the best 30 minuets of music you’ll hear on your average Saturday, but hey I guess we’re bias, Enjoy!
