Postponed: Gilles Peterson Makes Long Awaited Return to KL at Iron Fairies on 15 February

{This has been postponed to a later date}

 

 

A much long awaited return to KL shores for the legendary British broadcaster, DJ, record collector, Gilles Peterson this coming 15 February 2020 at the Iron Fairies KL brought to you by Collective Minds.

Gilles Peterson hosts the weekly BBC Radio 6 Saturday afternoon show that’s one of the broadcasting station's most popular music shows, helms independent record label Brownswood Recordings, and is the founder of online radio station Worldwide FM.

 

 

Throughout his career, Peterson has promoted the new frontiers of jazz, hip-hop, and electronic music. Starting by installing illicit transmitters and hosting shows for pirate radio station Radio Invicta, he later joined the newly-founded Jazz FM and, after that, joined the pirate-turned-legal station Kiss FM. In 1998, he was hired by BBC Radio 1, where he hosted a weekly show until his move to his current slot on BBC Radio 6 Music.

He has been behind several game-changing record labels; he founded Acid Jazz in the late eighties, and in the early nineties he started Talkin’ Loud. His current venture is Brownswood Recordings. As a curator and collector, he’s compiled over 100 albums.

 

 

In 2011, he founded the Steve Reid Foundation in memory of the legendary jazz drummer. The charity supports musicians who are ill and facing financial difficulties and, jointly with the PRS Foundation, runs the Steve Reid InNOVAtion Award.

Since 2005, he has hosted the annual Worldwide Awards in London and Worldwide Festival in Sète, France, and in 2019, he launched the new We Out Here festival in the UK.

 

 

He's joined this tour by long time collaborator, a man of many monikers and projects, MC General Rubbish aka Rob Gallagher aka Earl Zinger aka Galliano aka Diabolical Liberties, as well as Raji Rags – a Boiler Rom and Bleep musical cornerstone, and part of the Livin' Proof and Bubble Chamber DJ collectives in London.

And of course, on the local front, there will be Roshan b2b Rizki and JonnyVicious on the support vibes to enjoy for the night.
