Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #161

September 4, 2015

Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 albums that have shaped me so far. The album this week is 24→24 Music by Dinosaur L.

Dinosaur L, if you haven’t heard by now, was one of Arthur Russell’s many musical facets. 24→24 Music was originally released in 1981, on Sleeping Bag Records; Arthur Russell and William Socolov’s label. Dignified grooves, sexy vocals and sometimes ingenious lyrics has allowed 24→24 Music to crossover to dance floors, making it a pivotal record in the history of New Yorks 80′s downtown music scene.
