Something for the weekend… Gilles Peterson meets Ross Allen… the podcast!

Having penned the liner notes to Gilles P’s latest offering… ‘Masterpiece’ …from the Ministry Of Sound I was most happy to see GP has got together with my good friend, the ever feisty and seriously deep music fan’ Ross Allen to do this 2 hour long podcast! I rarely miss reading Ross’ e.mail missives or listening to his proudly eclectic Ministry show and this conversation with Gilles is packed with history of the London club scene. Anyway, this is what Ross had to say about this excellent on-air meeting of musical minds.

“This show is an interview that I did with Gilles Peterson, lovingly mixed by Steve at Ministry and sounding rather good. It’s basically a plug for Gilles excellent new compilation on Ministry. However I thought it was a good opportunity to tell the story of one of the worlds leading DJ’s. Always covering new music with a huge knowledge of all that went before. I have been going to his gigs since I was 17, and still do. You never know what you are going to get with him except a certain quality. The chat was great, a bit in depth, but it tells the tale of a passionate music lover who has taken his love all over the world. It’s doable if you have the desire and knowledge. This tale tells that and stops off at all points music in between. There are lots of Gilles’ classics in there and mentions of clubs, parties and radio station that are classic in London’s musical history some of it you’ll know and lots you won’t. It covers everything from his earliest musical purchases to chats about Thundercat and Kode 9…”

Top weekend listening!
