You so cant beat these SOUL greats! It has been a while since we heard any Bill Withers, but we are totally feeling this mans music all over again. What a master song-writer and story-teller.
Gilles is joined by soul legend Raphael Saadiq live in the studio! The pair get in deep conversation about such topics as working with Erykah Badu, his work in Lucy Pearl, why he’s moving to Paris and their shared love of Shuggie Otis.
Gilles plays three tracks from Raphael’s phenomenal Maida Vale Session and a few tracks from the new album ‘Stone Rollin’.
Also, check out the usual freshness from the likes of Kode9, Art Department, Cottam and a new Koreless remix!
