Joy Orbison Interview + Mix on Gilles Peterson Worldwide

Gilles Peterson secures a rare interview and mix from young Joy Orbison (scan to the 1:19:00 mark). Inspired at the age of twelve by jungle tunes from the legendary V Recordings now he is making what some say is the most exciting electronic music out now. Future garage? The short mix includes a couple of new tunes set to be released as an EP on his Doldrums label. A great show overall. Music and words with Mos Def and Shuanise round out the show. Cheers to Core News for the rip.
