“Brownswood Bubblers provides a platform for unsung heroes and emerging talent from the Worldwide underground. The series distils the stream of exciting new artists that have become semi-permanent fixtures in Gilles’ playlists and DJ sets of late to create a suite of perfect bumps.”
Eight chapters deep, we’re chuffed to be able to bring you another collection of bubblers handpicked by Gilles Peterson. One Little Plane’s ‘She Was Out In The Water’ has been a staple of his radio playlists – a beautifully crafted folk ditty produced by Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet. Likewise, Darkhouse Family’s heavyweight soul jam ‘Take On The World’ featuring the mighty Om’Mas Keith of Sa-Ra Creative Partners fame. As ever there are a fistful of exclusives to be had… from the haunting electronic soul of Hadyn and Everett James (via personal recommendations from Taylor McFerrin and Stacey Epps respectively) to the raggedy bump ‘n’ grind of Hello Skinny’s ‘Crush’ and Nick Mulvey’s rambling ode to the River Lea. Gilles’ love of Brazil shines ever bright with the melodic and sun-drenched ‘Linha de Frente’ by Criolo and there’s a nod to the Grammy-nominated French-Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux with the gorgeous ‘Volver’.
