GP on BBC Radio 1 / Seun Kuti // 30-03-11

March 30, 2011

Son of Fela Kuti, and legend in his own right Sean Kuti, caught up with Gilles to talk about his new album, his father, Arsenal FC and Bob Marley among other things! He also previewed a bunch of tracks from the new album.

Gilles also gets his teeth into a few records that he rediscovered after clearing out the Brownswood Basement including a classic cut from The Roots.

All that plus freshness from Mic Newman, Jacques Greene, Locussolus and a Hudson Mohawke re-work of Jamie Woon, OUCH!
