Giant Step welcomes the return of our longtime friend Gilles Peterson to the U.S. on January 22nd for an exclusive show at Brooklyn’s Output. This is the only US show on his trip across the pond and marks his first NYC appearance in over 2 years. DJ, broadcaster, producer, compiler, label boss (Brownswood Recordings) or plain old record collector – the music is always the bottom line for Peterson. Artists from around the globe, including such legendary heavyweights as Questlove, Q-Tip and Erykah Badu, heap praise on the Londoner.
Starting off life as a club DJ, Gilles continues to spin regularly around the world. Last year alone has seen him in Rio, Martinique, Tokyo, Havana and most parts of Europe. As for the radio, his new 3-hour Saturday afternoon show on BBC Radio 6 Music has seen him take his unique musical mix to a new and growing audience of music lovers whilst the syndicated Worldwide radio show continues to spread his musical gospel… well, worldwide. From Sun-Ra to James Blake to Theo Parrish to Flying Lotus – if it swings in the right places, it’s in.
