In 2020 during lockdown in the UK, I composed some ambient music for a project commissioned by my good friend Nick Luscombe.

This show was recorded via Zoom on the 2nd January 2021 with my good friend Tomo from Tokyo, Japan.
It focuses on the life and music of Japanese musician and artist Makoto Kubota, whose career has spanned five decades and covers a wide range of different genres including folk, rock, traditional Okinawan music, exotica, ambient and lo-fi.

I highly recommend this article on Kubota which provides a great overview of his work:

Ski Selection Vinyls Radio Nova 11 September 2000

This show was recorded on 29th December 2019

Here's the playlist:

"What a challenge to try to define my musical 'DNA' through a two hour selection of tracks! Still, it is a great honour to have been asked, and I have found it to be a very satisfying experience. I hope that the playlist works as an enjoyable listen as well as marking crucial points in the evolution of my musical appreciation. The hardest thing was knowing where to start and choosing what to miss out. I could have included artists such as Howard Jones, Depeche Mode & Tears for Fears who I loved as a teenager for example, but instead I tried to focus on tracks that had the biggest impact on me when I first discovered them and have subsequently become musical reference points for my own compositions.

Ryuichi Sakamoto with Gilles Peterson // 17-01-19

I was very honoured to be asked to select three Sakamoto tracks for this show and also talk a little bit about them. It was broadcast in 17th January 2019 to celebrate Ryuichi's 67th birthday.
