After the sell out success of the last year with Gilles Peterson and previous years with Derrick Carter, Todd Terje and Greg Wilson, we welcome back legendary crate digger and BBC 6Music favourite Gilles Peterson to headline our NYE party, alongside edit maestro The Reflex and support across the venue.
Gilles joins us for NYE once again after superb summer 'Up On The Roof' parties over the last four years.
Starting off life as a club DJ, Gilles continues to spin passionately around the world. From Kazakhstan to Hackney, Istanbul, New York, Beijing and beyond … he has always seen himself first and foremost as a selector of discs for the Dance!
The formula for Gilles’ radio shows is a simple one: the finest new music he can lay his hands on…In addition to his BBC 6 Music show, Gilles records a separate weekly Worldwide programme that is syndicated to 8 stations across the globe including France’s avant-garde Radio Nova, VRT StuBru-Belgium, Arrow FM in the Netherlands, CRO Wave- Czech Republic, FM4 in Austria, Radio X and WDR Funkhaus Europa - Germany.
Every year, the musical heroes of the global underground are brought together and honoured at the Worldwide Awards - an annual celebration of the best music from the show that year held in London and hosted by Gilles.
Today, Peterson is at the forefront of his own independent label - Brownswood Recordings.
Regular guest The Reflex supports...Nile Rodgers is a fan. Kid Creole is a fan. Disclosure, Jazzy Jeff, and Joris Voorn are all fans. From house music royalty, Joey Negro, Dimitri from Paris and Mousse T, to the original DJ - remix pioneers John Morales, Greg Wilson, Danny Krivit, and Nicky Siano, all the way to Aeroplane, DJ Marky, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Horse Meat Disco, J.Rocc, Nic Fanciulli, Jazzie B, Cut Killer, Rainer Truby, Acid Arab, Nightmares on Wax… They are all fans of The Reflex.
Fascinated by the remix from an early age, London-based French native Nicolas Laugier, aka The Reflex, takes his cue from the first wave of disco remixers by using only the original sounds from the master tapes (or stems) to breathe new life into soul, pop and disco classics. Imaginative arrangements, boxfresh sonics and intricate editing make The Reflex Revisions rocket fuel for every DJ set.
