Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards

Gig info

Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards on Saturday January 22nd at Koko’s in Camden Town is sold out. The 8th annual flagship awards show is always a sell-out in advance as it represents an opportunity to see some of the most exciting new artists championed by Gilles Peterson. This year's show features short live showcases from James Blake, Mount Kimbie, RocketNumberNine with Four Tet, Cubic Zirconia, United Vibrations featuring Raashan Ahmad and Homeboy Sandman and Brandt Brauer Frick (as well as a couple of very special guests to be announced on the night) and DJ’s including Michel Cleis, Nihal, Scuba, Pearson Sound, Lefto and Ahu.

Gilles Peterson presents three radio shows a week – his flagship BBC Radio 1 show (now in its 11th year), his Worldwide show which is syndicated to 14 radio stations around the world and a dedicated show for J-Wave, Tokyo’s largest radio station. Gilles consistently tops the BBC iplayer’s radio ‘listen again’ chart and runs Brownswood Recordings, a record label that is the natural progression from the two previous labels he founded – Acid Jazz & Talkin Loud. A continual champion of new specialist music from jazz & soul through to dance music & world music, Gilles’s unique knowledge and enthusiasm is replicated at the Worldwide Awards which to many music lovers has become an annual institution.
