Gilles on BBC 6Music // Saturday 21st April

April 23, 2012

Gilles returns for his third Saturday afternoon session on BBC Radio 6 Music, searching far and wide for the perfect beat.

Alongside his trademark sound, which touches on soul, jazz, hip hop and funk, this week Gilles takes a look at the disco re-edit scene as part of 6 Music Celebrates: Dance Culture. Fronted by Boston crate diggers Kon & Amir, amongst others, this movement has seen classics by Cerrone and The Joubert Singers light up dance-floors 30 years after their inception. It was also Record Store Day and therefore another excuse to play vinyl (not that it’s really needed!).
