This past Wednesday’s Gilles Peterson Worldwide on BBC1 was a banger, and it’s well worth a Sunday afternoon/evening replay. The tastemaker’s tastemaker debuted some fresh, previously unheard material from a few of my personal, and LxNxM’s, favorites: Lunice, Tokimonsta, Flying Lotus and Raphael Saadiq. He also threw the new Little Dragon single, “Nightlight,” in the playlist and played an exclusive, short-but-sweet DJ set from Ms. “On & On” herself.  (If those aren’t enough reasons for you to listen, then you’re on the wrong blog, dude.)

You probably already know about my unrequited love for Erykah – no need to repeat myself too much, lest I come off as a creep-o.  But I gotta say, Erykah’s DJ sets are always on point.  She might not be a seamless mixmaster, but she knows how to get deep.  And I’m not just talking about the depth of her crates, but the depth of the feeling she’s able to convey with her song selection.  That’s why it’s also cool to hear Erykah and Gilles geek out on the music afterward. The love that these two have for the music is inspirational and infectious.  Turntables, here I come!
