Gilles Peterson

Gilles Peterson (born 28 September c.1964 in Caen, France, to a mother from Paris and a father from Zürich), is a DJ, record collector and record label owner from London, UK. Through his labels Acid Jazz, Talkin'' Loud, and latterly Brownswood Recordings, he has been associated with the careers of well-known artists of the 1990s such as Erykah Badu, Roni Size and Jamiroquai. He is also well known as a radio DJ. After starting out on pirate radio, and having shows on various legal London-based radio stations, most noticeably including Kiss FM dance music station, he was recruited to the BBC''s youth-oriented Radio 1 in 1998. Peterson is known for his eclectic musical selections, and has even been occasionally mentioned as the new John Peel[citation needed]. However whilst the late John Peel had an "anything goes" range of tastes displayed on his show, Peterson''s focus has always been Jazz music, generally Modern Jazz, with a strong emphasis on its translation to a club environment, mixed with associated music styles.
