Gilles Peterson // Northern Soul Special // BBC Radio 6

October 6, 2014


Gilles is back in the studio for another Saturday afternoon mix up selection, joining the musical dots between soul, hip hop, house, afro, electronica, jazz and beyond, in his own inimitable style.

This week he chats to film director Elaine Constantine about her favourite Northern Soul records, ahead of the release of the film ‘Northern Soul’ featuring Steve Coogan, John Thomson, Lisa Stansfield and Ricky Tomlinson. Gilles and Elaine go back to back on some classics and hidden gems from that golden era.
