NYE 2018 WITH GILLES PETERSON
Having probably done more to platform global beats than any other British broadcaster, Gilles Peterson again brings his rich and vibrant Worldwide sound to Concorde 2. A larger-than-life personality, much loved by radio audiences, clubbers and music lovers alike, he creates a unique style from seemingly disparate sections of the musical spectrum. In any session, you could hear everything from African roots and deep Jamaican dub to neo-soul and cool European jazz. For almost a quarter of a century, Peterson has used music to unite and delight, creating a vision of the world where all forms are equal.
