Gilles Peterson

Real Name:
Gilles Moehrle
Profile:
British radio & club DJ, vinyl record collector, and record label owner.
Born: 28 September 1964 in Caen, France.

Involved in many labels throughout his career, the main ones being early involvement with Acid Jazz (the label and scene coined by him during an early DJ event), Talkin' Loud (along with Japanese offshoot Brownswood Records), and latterly with his own label Brownswood Recordings (named after the shows he calls "Brownswood Basement" specials, playing old, often rare, vinyl from his massive collection, as stored at his basement studio address in north London).

He garnered attention through his various radio shows, with the Somethin' Else production company produced show for BBC Radio 1 called "Worldwide" being the biggest, broadcast since 1998 to present day. Also an additional variation of Worldwide, made and syndicated internationally, has made him one of the most syndicated radio DJs ever.

Such radio attention, has lead to worldwide DJ gigs, and is he is always in demand across Europe, Japan & the Far East, Australasia, the US, and beyond. The start of these was at the "Talkin' Loud Sayin' Something" event (named after the similarly titled James Brown track) at north London venue Dingwalls, from the early 1980s to around 1991. These sessions with partner DJ Patrick Forge were famed for the so-called British Jazzdance scene, where fast jazz and latin records were played to an enthusiastic and full-on crowd of dancers in a dance form of there own.

Compilation albums have also been a constant throughout his career from the very beginning, as often having access to rare or hard-to-find records, as well as unsigned artists, has meant being able to share such finds with a wider audience.
Furthermore, as well as running the Brownswood Recordings label, he has also lately released a Cuban artist project recorded in Havana of his own, featuring as producer/executive producer, called "New Cuba Sound" on the label. He continues releasing & DJ-ing on all fronts.
