Gilles On BBC6 Music // Toro Y Moi In Session

January 28, 2013

Gilles is joined by a man who first came to prominence as part of the US Chillwave movement of 2010. Hailing from South Carolina, 25 year old Toro Y Moi, also known as Chaz Bundick, released his debut album on Carpark Records, with the follow up, Underneath The Pine, garnering further praise in 2011. With his hotly awaited new release, Anything In Return, Gilles and Chaz talk about the new material, and his influences which include Lonnie Liston Smith and The Headhunters, as well as slipping in an exclusive first play of a new Les Sins track. There’s also new music from Disclosure, Four Tet and Tony Allen, alongside classics from Fela Kuti, Leon Thomas and Hawthorne Headhunters, with a cheeky Do Over featuring Black Eyed Peas’ sampling of Stark Reality also in the mix.

Plus, we hear from Machine Drum who played at the Worldwide Awards at Koko in London last weekend. Gilles has a skill for joining the musical dots, linking the musical heritage of the past with the progressive innovation of the future, and drawing upon his distinguished career as a DJ and A&R man.

He plays three hours of soul, hip-hop, house, Afro, Latin, electronica, jazz and beyond, with interviews and sessions from legends of the scene as well as the leaders of the new school.
