My Favourite Record: Gilles Peterson

Few people’s record collections sport the same heft as Gilles Peterson‘s.

Through his radio shows on BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music, his record label Brownswood and various projects and collaborations that draw the links between the soundsystem cultures of the UK, Brazil, Cuba and more – see 2012’s Mala in Cuba for a recent example – he regularly showcases it with insight, grace and just the right amount of dad humour.

This May, Brownswood released the latest in its Electr*c series of compilations. Watch Gilles tell FACT TV about his Favourite Record above, and find out more about Brownswood Electr*c Vol. 4 here.
