When Daniel Brandt asked me to get involved with Strrr TV, with a focus on London’s ‘superstars and brilliant newcomers hailing from the world of music, art, design, film, and fashion’, Gilles Peterson was one of the first people I got in touch with, and it turns out his is the first episode I produced.

Despite having working with Gilles for years, I learnt new things from the videos he chose, particularly discovering more about the jazz funk and soul club scene of the 80s, and how it left such a lasting impression on him. It looked like a fun time to be clubbing!

Here are a couple video screengrabs from the shoot.
