Listen here!

Gilles Peterson has Somalian MC and rising star K’Naan in conversation.

Hear about his roots, why he’s using Ethiopian samples and his love of Fela Kuti along with some of the great tracks he’s been working on with the likes of Mos Def, Wale, J.Period, Keane and Mary J Blige

Plus all that proper sonic sauce from Scuba, Madlib, James Blake, Nice Nice, Space Invadas, The Simonsound, The Hackney Colliery Band and Bei Bei & Shawn Lee and also Erykah Badu – who will be going back to back with Gilles next week, right here on BBC Radio 1.

    Superb stuff! Colman Bros never fail, but the Hackney Colliery Band is a summer anthem in the making! One of those tunes that you know will rock the floors all season long!

    Also enjoyed the WW45s feature on Gilles’ podcast! Big up Dom & Scrimshire!
