Gilles Peterson is a certifiable DJ legend. An endearing broadcaster, who has given exposure to some of the most far-flung and obscure music scenes on the planet, Peterson has championed a truly global musical perspective. Bringing his discoveries back to his South London HQ, Gilles’ pursuit is thorough and incessant – a passion that shows no signs of slowing down. A child of the punk revolution and moulded by the Tory’s much derided Criminal Justice Act of 1994, Peterson has pushed a staunch anti-establishment political agenda through purely apolitical methods. A more comprehensive encyclopaedic-knowledge of music you are unlikely to find, his appearance at J2 will be both an education and entertaining.
