Biography

In 2014, all roads lead to Brazil. As the World Cup draws near, the not-so-sleeping giant of South America will move to centre-stage, and its irresistible rhythms will become the soundtrack of the summer. Cheesy compilations will line up to cash in, peddling worn-out clichés of girls from Ipanema. But for those who want the real musical flavour of Brazil - its super-dynamic present and ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Contemporary house meets jazz funk and disco. 7 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
With his Back in Brazil and Gilles Peterson in Africa mixes, it seemed like a while since he's really done anything closer to home, and closer to normal dance music trends. There was a lukewarm 2005 house mix for Mixmag magazine, but it's about time Gilles checks in with a superb outing of current house music. Disc 1 is full of funky vocal house and jazzed up selections, which Gilles seems to be an expert at selecting. The mixing runs smoothly, but the one down spot I found on this disc was the Sandy Rivera & Jose Burgos track This Will Change It, which features an incredibly long run of non-stop vocal repetition. At nearly 7 minutes of constant chorus, it really tempts you to hit the skip button. Other than that, this is a very solid house mix, and one of the best I've heard this year.

Disc 2 goes back to the past, with a mix consisting of nearly all 70's tracks. It's a lively jazz funk, soul, and disco mix, with some very interesting choices such as Space Bass by Slick, with it's futuristic lyrics, and the opener, We Gettin' Down, which quite possibly was the inspiration for A Tribe Called Quest's song Award Tour. There's also the well known Disco hit, Boogie Oogie Oogie by A Taste Of Honey.

Disc 3 is a collection of new, exclusive tracks commissioned by Gilles, which feature new house tracks with soulful male and female vocals. There really isn't a dull song on here. It features an interesting Carl Craig remix and a jazzed up Peterson edit of a Louie Vega track.

This 3 disc set well worth the asking price, as you're getting two superb mixes, one of new material, one of old, and one bonus collection of dozen new tracks. With 52 tracks and virtually no duds, this is a near perfect entry in the Defected In the House mix series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing aaah ! 7 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
Boundry busting Gilles girates his Technic for smiley faces...

CD1 foreward thinking house mix, starting out all soulful and vocal, then moving into his more trademark afro sound (with 4/4 this time though), then into jazzy house and deep techno. He gives the middle finger to his dissers that say he can't mix. Ok he's no Louie Vega or Sasha but he does a solid mix here.

CD2 his usual kinda black music gear. Very uplifting though 'think Jackie Brown' soul, jazz, b-boy.

CD3 unmixed exclusive gems, a good variety of house grooves for all you budding jocks out there. Very different and very fresh.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Master Record Finder 8 Jun 2010
By Ian Shine VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Gilles Peterson has a reputation for finding the best records from around the world that have either been forgotten or simply never found before. He's been doing it for 12 years on Radio 1 and he's done it again with this compilation.
The three discs concentrate on specific areas of house. The first is very focal and funky, and listening to it a couple of years after the compilation was first released it's the disc that has aged the most. It sounds very 2008, but is still a decent listen.
The second disc is my personal favourite, pulling out disco and funk from the 70s. It's packed with absolute gems, from Willie Hutch's Brother's Gonna Work It Out to Rufus & Chaka Khan's Circles, and one of the best and most intelligent disco compilations you're likely to come across.
Finally is a slightly darker, future house disc that sees Gilles moving again into more intelligent and interesting areas of house music.
For the sheer number of tracks I give this five stars, and for disc two and three I give it five stars, but disc one is just a little bit tired after a couple of listens, so overall I give it four stars.

This triple album is genius, both the 'older' tracks and the new. Some of these will stand the test of a very long time!
