We Out Here Festival

Curated by Gilles Peterson, the inaugural festival in the summer of 2019 was his first UK based festival focusing on the emerging young British jazz musicians alongside the established international greats. We collaborated with Gilles’s record label, Browswood recordings, to create Brawnswood, an all day venue in the heart of the festival. Cooking food, pouring wines combined with a soundsystem programmed and powered by the Brownswood crew. Over the four days of the festival, Brawnswood became a hub, a meeting place and a venue for everyone to be fed, watered and join the dance! Let’s hope 2021 allows us to meet again!

Ricci Weekender

A joint collaboration between Gilles Peterson, Ed Wilson and Mercati Generali, the legendary club in Catania, Sicily. Now entering into its 3rd edition (fingers crossed for 2021!), the idea behind the weekender was to create an intimate space where music, food and wine could be shared. Spread over 3 evenings and across a different spectacular outdoor venue each evening, Gilles curates a mix of live performance, music and DJ’s whilst Ed cooks and pours wines using the islands rich bounty, often collaborating with like minded chefs, winemakers and restaurateurs from around the globe.

Brownswood Recordings

Brownswood Recordings is the independent record label founded by DJ, record collector and broadcaster Gilles Peterson. Founded in 2006, it’s a platform for new artists to grow, and a space for established acts to break with tradition. An outlet for the eclectic breadths of Gilles’ taste as a DJ and collector, its early output broached new orchestral arrangements, full-throttle Japanese jazz and club-rooted soul music. Over a decade later, that inclusive attitude continues. Its output spans the new jazz messengers of the UK underground, fresh tangents in hip-hop-tipped-beatmaking, and snapshots of Havana’s burgeoning club culture.

Now Again Records

Now-Again records – Eothen Alapatt aka ‘Egon’ founded the record label in 2002 in Los Angeles whilst running the infamous Stones Throw label simultaneously. He focuses on reissues of music from the 1950’s to the present day and the label represents a wealth of discographies that range from Nigerian fuzz-funk to Swedish hard rock to Brasilian psychedelia to the jazz, funk, soul and disco that Egon is known for. These records are always on rotation at the restaurant.
