Gilles Peterson – Brownswood Basement Drum & Bass Special 05/05/2010

Gilles Peterson


Yep, Gilles finally got around to a Brownswood Basement Special that he’s been promising since about 2003! He spent a whole day rummaging through stacks of 12’s, white labels and old acetates and pulled out about 40 old favourites. Photek, Peshay, Goldie, DJ Hype, Source Direct, LTJ Bukem, Roni Size, Ed Rush & Optical… 110% underground heaters, classic material and golden memories, it’s by no means a comprehensive history of D&B, but it is a great snapshot of a scene in full flow.

I am quite late on this one but this is one you should not miss. Gilles Peterson providing a two hours history lesson with loads of classic tuneage from the golden years of drum and bass. New producers please take notes.

  1. fantastic!!! very much looking forward to this. might try and convert some friends with it too…

  2. Nice one Tim for putting this up had it for a lil bit now. It’s the best well presented drum and bass show i’ve ever heard. Superbly mixed and hosted by one of the smoothest characters in Music.

    The best soundtrack to life imho

  3. This set reminded me why I love dnb so much. Hopefully we never forget its roots.

    Bigup Gilles on a perfect selection!

  4. This is going on permanent rotation.. what a mix! So many memories :)

  5. Packed, informative, selection, classics. Takes me back to when I first started listening to jungle. Loved it!
