Gilles Peterson presents MV4, LP Brownswood Recordings
Brownswood Recordings & Arc Records – 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.
Arc Records is Gilles new label founded in 2019. Selecting reissues from his personal archive (some 50,000 plus records) shines a light on these magnificent records and the stories that brought them to us.
Gilles is the source of so many of our musical influences and memorable restaurant moments. His long search for the elusive Tam Tam Tam album ended at Brawn after Egon & Madlib hand delivered a copy they had found on a recent digging trip to São Paulo. He has been a huge support to us and we have collaborated on a number of projects from the ‘Brawnswood’ tent at the inaugural We Out Here Festival to 2 editions of the Ricci festival in Catania, Sicily.
Gilles Peterson presents MV4
Gilles Peterson presents a time capsule of musical magic on this exclusive. Taken from a day of live sessions in London’s legendary Maida Vale Studios – studio MV4 to be exact, it was originally intended just for Peterson’s BBC radio show broadcast on 20th October 2018. Struck by what a special moment the sessions captured, Peterson has decided to mark the results with a release proper on his Brownswood imprint.
A limited special double vinyl release, it features a diverse, all-star cast of some of the acts celebrated by Peterson in recent years, in a series of freewheeling and off-the-cuff recordings, several of the tracks backed by the group of Brownswood signee, Joe Armon-Jones. Featuring Dylan Jones, James Mollison, Mutale Chashi, and Marijus Aleksa as well as guest turns from Fatima, Asheber, Nubya Garcia, Hak Baker, and Oscar Jerome, plus a double track special from Bristol based collective, Ishmael Ensemble.
