V/A - Brownswood Bubblers 10 (2013)

There's plenty bubbling up this time around – a rich range of contemporary tracks that show that our man Gilles Peterson still has his ear to the ground for the best new sounds around! The vibe is very soulful – and tracks are a wonderful blend of older modes and very fresh future elements – served up back to back in a way that few other collections could ever handle this well – the same sort of special feeling we get when we dig Gilles in a club or on the air! And even ten volumes in, the man's still opening up our ears to so much wonderful stuff – quite a feat, but that's why we've been digging his sounds for 25 years. 

Titles include "Recognise" by Oscar & Martin, "Ezra Was Right" by Grandbrothers, "Gatekeeper" by Eska, "Goodnight" by Philip Owusu, "Do You" by Reginald Omas Mamode, "Sleep With Stars" by Tuseday Born, "Notes On A History" by Nia Andrews, and "When I Was On Horseback" by The Memory Band.
