Gilles Weekly Round-Up // New Beginnings
December 29, 2012
…With Christmas now over it’s time for me to head off to Asia for a couple shows to close the year. I feel like I’ve been to more spots than usual this year…from Martinique to Rio in between all my regulars from Tokyo to Almaty… already planned for 2013 are trips to Russia, India and Algeria and in march a small tour of Switzerland building up to the worldwide winter session in Leysin… kick off in Berne on March 1st, Geneva March 2nd and Zurich on March 4th. The line up is shaping up nicely with the likes of Hudson Mohawk and Lindstrom already confirmed. Sète is beginning to building up too… announcements soon, but get your tiickets as this will sell out… !
Talking of which The Worldwide Awards on Jan 19 are coming quick…Naneh Cherry will be performing some brand new material with Rocketnumbernine plus Nai Palm from Hiatus Kaiyote and a special 50 years in the biz performance from Marcos Valle who will be receiving the lifetime achievement… there’s also a couple of very special secret dj sets that I can’t announce till the day… it’s gonna be another momentous night… line up so far is here and don’t forget to vote on your favourite track, label and breakthrough act of the year.
I’m about to board so will use the next 12 hours to come up with my tracks, films, moments of the year all listed up…
In the meantime I wish you a Happy New Year in advance and remind you to check my next show on 6 music, which features an interview with Bobby Womack…Listen here.
