Listen back to the BBC Radio 6 segment

UK music icon Gilles Peterson recently teamed up with D&B legend DJ Krust, to host a special one-off radio segment on the Bristol underground music scene.

Throughout the show, Peterson chats with a bunch of respected artists and academics to trace Bristol’s vibrant musical lineage, including pow-wows with Mo’ Wax label boss James Lavelle, Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, Full Cycles’s Roni Size, Appleblim, Richard King and many more.
