Interview with Kon

Gilles is back in the studio for another Saturday afternoon mix-up selection, featuring an interview with DJ, producer and crate-digger Kon.

Gilles is back in the studio for another Saturday mix up selection, joining the musical dots between soul, hip hop, house, afro, electronica, jazz and beyond.

This week, he chats to DJ, producer and crate-digger Kon. Kon, and his musical partner Amir, began digging in the record bins of Boston. Over a lifetime of collecting, they've unearthed rare records that span deep funk to soul, Latin to hip-hop. The pair have also been responsible for some of the biggest re-edits around.
