Gilles Peterson Worldwide 2015-05-02 Interviews with Roots Manuva, Q-Tip and Phife Dawg

“Gilles speaks to Roots Manuva about his new album and Q-Tip and Phife Dawg about the A Tribe Called Quest classic ‘People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm’.
As the deliverer of modern classics such as Witness (1 Hope) and Dreamy Days and with over five albums under his belt, Roots Manuva aka Rodney Smith, has created a catalogue of work which is held dear. He has worked with a diverse list of musicians from The Cinematic Orchestra to Blak Twang via Leftfield and most recently has been working with two of the most prized producers around – Four Tet and Machinedrum. With his new album tipped for release later this year, Rodney talks to Gilles Peterson about his life in music.
Carrying on the hip hop theme, Gilles also focuses on the classic album ‘People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm’ by A Tribe Called Quest, which celebrated its 25th birthday recently. He speaks to band members Phife Dawg and Q-Tip about what the album means to them a quarter of a century later and what they are up to at the moment.”

Benji B – The Story of Q-Tip 2014-06-22

“Benji B tells the story of hip-hop legend Q-Tip – founding member of A Tribe Called Quest. Hear from Q-Tip at length as well as Pharrell, Nas, The Pharcyde and more.
A Tribe Called Quest helped create a new wave of hip-hop in the 90’s with their innovative sound, style and message. Q-Tip’s production in particular has helped shape hip-hop right through to today, with artists like Kanye and Pharrell citing him as one of their biggest influences. Benji speaks at length with Tip about his musical upbringing in Queens in the 70’s, releasing a debut LP as a teenager, his reluctance to fame and the part he played in introducing the late J Dilla to the world.
There is also an exclusive Tribe announcement and Tip gives more details about his forthcoming LP – The Last Zulu, which he describes as ‘The Evil twin to Tribe’. ”
