It’s been far too long since the London DJ-tastemaker Gilles Peterson has played in NYC—but on Thursday, October 26th, the venerable clubland icon is spinning at Le Poisson Rouge, thanks to the good people at Giant Step. In the run-up to the gig, the BBC Radio host and label honcho (of Acid Jazz, Talkin’ Loud and, currently, Brownswood Recordings) has dropped this lovely DJ mix into our laps. In true Peterson fashion, it’s a musically wide-ranging affair; there’s house, R&B, a bit of trip-hoppy rock and plenty more to be had. Also in true Peterson fashion, it’s all dripping in soul.
