Gilles Peterson

is one of the big players on the global music scene. Mainly as a DJ, label owner and radio show host he has been tagged «the new John Peel», alhough his main focus was and still is Jazz. He was one of the initiators of Acid Jazz, ran Talkin’ Loud Records and now Brownswood Recordings. Peterson has helped many artists to launch their careers and has been equally influential in the crossover and advancement of as many underground genres.
