VIDEO: Thom Yorke Interviews Flying Lotus, Worldwide Awards Update

by Winston "Stone" Ford

It seems that in only a few short years, the Gilles Peterson train has been picking up full steam. Once just a radio show, the Gilles brand has branched out to a record label, worldwide tours, as well as an annual WorldWide festival. For the 5th year, the Worldwide Awards was at Koko in London this past week, featuring everyone from New York’s Homeboy Sandman to the evolutionary Four Tet. From what I’m seeing on this video it was a great time, and even Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke stopped by to give Flying Lotus an award in addition to this hilarious, alcohol fueled interview:
