sneak peek on gilles peterson
Everyone agrees that music is a universal language. Although the taste in music may differ
depending on the genre, there is no race, gender and age limit when listening to it. This is the
reason why composing and arranging music can only come to those who are gifted. A good
arranger, much more producer, can be successful in a tight musical world. They could fail but a
real talent can definitely put a person back to his pedestal. Take for example Gilles Peterson,
British DJ, record collector, and record label owner.
Gilles Peterson is a world renowned broadcaster, music producer, disk jockey and founder of the
famous Worldwide Awards. With his outstanding record in music production and undeniable talent
in mixing music which can be enjoyed by different people from all walks of life regardless of age,
culture and nationality, he has been recognized as one of the most notable personality in the
industry enough to earn him a spot in the top most listened to programmes in British Broadcasting
Company (BBC), the leading broadcasting company of the United Kingdom and the world's
largest and oldest national broadcasting organization.
Contrary from what people know and based on different reviews written about him though is that
Gilles Peterson did not have a smooth sailing musical journey.
Peterson favored Jazz above all other music genre but he would never miss a chance to fuse
different types of tunes. With a great ear to sound, he was soon discovered and was offered a job
on a London pirate radio station, Radio Invicta as DJ. He also gained fame with his club session,
"Talkin' Loud Sayin' Something" at the old Dingwall in North West London but soon experienced
his first struggle when he complained and retaliated with his anti-war commentaries during the
first Gulf War on his programme at Jazz FM. He was later fired from the station.
From there, the world seemed dim to him. But his talent shone as a beacon of light in his career.
Kiss FM hired him and he was given a second chance until he was discovered by BBC 1 in 1998,
almost 10 years after he began his hard trek in the industry and surpassing all the challenges
hurled at him.
What he is today, more than 15 years as a sought-after DJ performing and delivering music to
festivals in the far-flung corners of the world from his home in London to Egypt to Tokyo, Japan,
Jakarta, Indonesia and South America, has been because of his hard earned lessons found on
his rocky musical journey at Brownswood Boiler Room.
Gilles Peterson continues loving music and promises not to separate from it as long as the
beacon still shines.
