World music authority MPS PILOT (who’s not only a DJ but also an ethnomusicologist) takes you on a spoken and musical tour of world music. After which he hands over to a fast-rising talent in the UK dance scene: Romare.
MPS PILOT's travels have taken him to the Balkans, Spain, India, Turkey, Morocco, Senegal, Mali and Burkina Faso, where he’s submerged himself in modern world music. He’s appeared at venues from Mysteryland to Sziget, from North Sea Jazz to Mundial, from Lowlands to Oerol. He’ll introduce you to world music by playing lots of clips. And after that, he’ll introduce our other guest Romare with a short interview.
Romare is a new DJ from London, and a producer who’s spent the past few years collecting samples for a new concept: a form of music created by sampling the differences and similarities between two musical forms and cultures and bringing them together to form a new whole.
