Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards 2013 at KOKO

By on 23/01/2013. Posted in , .

I’d write heaps about that night if I had to, but thank god I don’t as I wasn’t alone. So i’ll leave it to my compadre to describe the vibes for you. In the words of Gareth Morgan, Blues and Soul Journalist:

Back in 1998, radio and club DJ Gilles Peterson started an All Winners Special in which he replayed the previous few months’ best new tracks that he had featured on his radio show. In more recent times, these winners plus a few further additions that may have been missed, were compiled into a long list that listeners of the show got to vote on – thus creating a final list of 10 for the year. Gilles’ show was called Worldwide so these winners became known as the ‘Worldwide Winners.’
