Gilles Peterson

Mr Porter continue their Aficionados series with some vinyl chat-chat, sitting down with legendary London DJ, Gilles Peterson, a man who knows the true meaning of obsession as his 40,000 plus record collection will attest. No longer ashamed of his habit, “I’d have to hide my records from my mum behind a tree at the end of the road,” Peterson, founder of labels Talkin’ Loud, Acid Jazz and Brownswood, takes Mr Porter through some of his favourites including Tam Tam Tam! by Mr José Prates, price tag £1,000, and a special Pope Jean Paul II Sun Ra release. Follow a day in the life of Mr Peterson below.
