Gilles Peterson Worldwide 2009-12-09 Guest host Ross Allen and Mos Def interview

11 December, 2009 (09:28) | Electronic music, Gilles Peterson, Hip Hop, MP3, World Music | By: Core News

I did not plan on posting this week’s Worldwide show as Gilles Peterson was away, but izmaelis (check out his blog for cue-sheet for the program) contacted me and thus I had a proper listen to this sweet show. Ross Allen is guest host and we get a great interview of Mos Def where he shares his insights about the dying record industry!
“The legendary music guru Ross Allen sits in for Gilles this week. Gilles is here in spirit though as we have an extended interview from when Gilles met Mos Def. Hear about his take on record labels, the music he’s digging right now, books, documentaries and more. Watch out for big new tunes from 2 Bears, Trim & a Various Productions of Lauren Pritchard and more!”

Well, he sounded this way one show before to me too, but I actually thought that that’s the way he talks.
