Gilles on BBC 6Music // Saturday 19th May

May 21, 2012

This week Gilles provides another Saturday afternoon session of great music, with Album Of The Week from Kindness – World You Need A Change Of Mind. Followed by some bouncy Brazilian beats from DrumMagic, a cheeky glimpse of a brand new Mala track and a special tribute to the legendary Chuck Brown and Donner Summer who sadly passed away last week.

Blood Lines looked at Lalah Hathaway and her farther Donny Hathaway featuring a great track with Robert Glasper and Lalah Hathaway – Cherish The Day. Gilles smashed The Do Over this week with Adam F ‘Circles’ and Bob James Westchester Lady (1976). The Backroom Babylon gives way to jazz, funk and soulful tunes from Soulsearchers, Evan Pyramid and Doug & Jean Carn to name but a few.
