---- GILLES PETERSON ----
Gilles Peterson is a broadcaster, DJ and record collector who hosts a weekly Saturday afternoon show on BBC Radio 6 Music that’s one of the broadcaster’s most popular music shows, helms independent record label Brownswood Recordings, and is the founder of online radio station Worldwide FM.
Throughout his career, Peterson has promoted the new frontiers of jazz, hip-hop, and electronic music. Starting by installing illicit transmitters and hosting shows for pirate radio station Radio Invicta, he later joined the newly-founded Jazz FM and, after that, joined the pirate-turned-legal station Kiss FM. In 1998, he was hired by BBC Radio 1, where he hosted a weekly show until his move to his current slot on BBC Radio 6 Music.
He has been behind several game-changing record labels. Firstly, he founded Acid Jazz in the late eighties, and in the early nineties he started Talkin’ Loud where five of the albums on the label were nominated for a Mercury Music Prize. His current venture is Brownswood Recordings and as a curator and collector, he’s compiled over 100 albums.
In 2011, he founded the Steve Reid Foundation in memory of the legendary jazz drummer. The charity supports musicians who are ill and facing financial difficulties and, jointly with the PRS Foundation, runs the Steve Reid InNOVAtion Award, which has supported upcoming artists such as Moses Boyd, Nubya Garcia and Sarathy Korwar.
Since 2005, he has hosted the annual Worldwide Awards in London and Worldwide Festival in Sète, France, and in 2019, he launched the new We Out Here festival in the UK.
--- RAJI RAGS ---
Born and raised in London city, Raj Chaudhuri (aka Raji Rags) is considered one of the key tastemakers in his hometown both behind the scenes and in front of the decks.
Current A&R for R&S Records, previous A&R for Bleep, previous Head of Music for Boiler Room, and a since day-one DJ and host for both NTS Radio and Boiler Room right up to present day – with or without knowing it, you have probably seen Raj’s diverse curation and music tastes in action.
Raj is also a co-founder of Livin’ Proof – the now iconic hip-hop party and DJ collective that have hosted the UK debuts of A$AP Rocky, Danny Brown, and early career performances from the likes of Action Bronson, Schoolboy Q, Joey Badass, A$AP Ferg, Hudson Mohawke and countless others.
Refusing to be restricted to a genre or style – Raj has established himself as one of the most pivotal figures in the London music landscape and one of it’s most trusted DJs in skills and selection.
--- RAH ---
RAH’s foray into electronic music started on the dance floor, where she would work up a sweat raving to drum&bass. The nascent nightlife of Singapore in early '00 was her training ground, it was the peak of when intimate guerilla popup parties were thrown with careless abandon. She started DJing D&B and hip-hop for fun at house parties and open deck sessions, which progressed to proper gigs at clubs locally and worldwide (still for fun).
RAH has since played at international festivals, venues, and radio stations, with notable gigs at Dimensions Festival (HR), Wonderfruit Festival (TH), Worldwide FM (UK), Potatohead Beach Bar (IND), Red Bull Music Radio (NY), Radio Raheem (IT), and Operator Radio (NL).
Her sound is ever-evolving, a result of growing up as a manic 90s kid (thank you Napster/ Limewire) as she constantly digs for fresh sounds old and new, partial to the likes of Jazz, Hip-Hop, Funk, Soul, and Bass, Afro, Brazilian, Asian rare grooves, and anything that takes her back to that special, liberating moment on the dance floor.
RAH is part of two independent movements in Singapore, record label Darker Than Wax, and events & music promotion collective, Revision Music.
