2 July 2010


I really have to give a big up to Giles Patterson he's a poineer in his support for just straight up good music, being one of the first DJ's to support in the UK artists such as Theophilus London, Jay Electronica, he recently just signed one of my favourite and most promising UK musical talents Ghostpoet to his brownswood records.

But another thing of important note with Mr Patterson is his promotion of global sound, check out his Havana Cultura Projects which have been running for the past year. We hit up one of the parties early on in 2010 and it was latino funk joy of dancing, rhythms and passionate vocals. He's also just released Havana Remixed, which I have been blessed enough to recieve and bump through my stereo happily coninciding with a little bit of summer we're getting this year.

To coincide with the latest release from globetrotting DJ Gilles Peterson – ‘Havana Cultura Remixed’, Havana Club rum will host two concerts of Cuba’s freshest musical talent - performing Latin, afro jazz and fusion to hip hop, funk, reggaeton and R&B.

There are only two UK dates and you can check them out here

Saturday 3 July @ The Sage Gateshead
Tuesday 6 July @ Barbican, London
