I don't think any of you will be pressed for good music playing this today.
Ahead of the Strata East Live show at The Barbican on March 22, Gilles has put together a mammoth 3 hour mix, playing nothing but the finest music released on the legendary 1970s label, Strata East. Part 1 dropped earlier this month (Gillespeterson – Strata-east-mix-part-1), and here's part 2!
Still to come, the in-depth Gilles Peterson x Charles Tolliver interview. For more information on the event, check www.barbican.org.uk/music/event-det…il.asp?
