Though not as acclaimed as fellow BBC DJ Mary Anne Hobbs in bass music circles, Giles Peterson’s absurdly deep record collection and ability to reconcile a planet’s worth of musical styles without falling pray to watered down “worldbeat” has earned him a legion of fans from Madlb to Mala. This week, the later drops by to spin a fantastic mix of unreleased dubs, classic Roots music and a Steve Reich tune he cut to dubplate from CD. All this while discussing airline baggage policies, the smell of acetate, the legendary DMZ paradise loss origin myth and how to DJ if deaf out of one ear. Perfect hangover music. Tracklist after the jump.
