Jay Electronica in conversation

Joining the musical dots - soul, hip-hop, house, Afro, Latin, dubstep, jazz and beyond, plus Gilles' guest is Jay Electronica.

Gilles Peterson is in conversation with man of the moment Jay Electronica tonight.

Hear the man behind ‘Exhibit C’ speak about his music and who he’s working with, why he likes staying in hostels and his love of Steely Dan. Hear some great music from his back catalogue, a few of his old favourites and fresh, never heard before tracks from Erykah Badu.

We’ve also got another session track from The Robert Glasper Experiment plus some words from the Experiment’s drummer Chris Dave, arguably the best living drummer right now.

Also watch out for more up front tunes from the likes of Gotan Project and a Floating Points remix of Fourtet.
