Far from Random Sonic + Aesthetic Loveliness for the Day: GILLES P. WORLDWIDE AWARDS 2012!

LeFtO Films: Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Awards 2012 from Lefto on Vimeo.

It's well known how much I've been pining to live in London since I was about 8 years old, + with the dismal state of our backward country that's been growing exponentially for years, especially in the last 3, so it's a bit masochistic how much I keep up with everything happening not just in London, but everywhere in the UK.... That said—I won't stop because as a graphic designer, DJ, + just as a human being it's also inspiring + I can't squelch the drive to keep up! This footage from last weekend's annual Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards fete is gorgeous, w/ plenty of my favorites, including Gang Colours, the ever-BEAUTIFUL Kutmah, Austin Peralta + Thundercat, Jamie XX + more, all presided over by GP himself looking mighty dapper in a white suit........ Another of those clips that makes the night look like pure magic (in the resplendent halls of Koko, which I've of course heard about for years but had never seen before), + making me pine to have been there! Enjoy! xo, B.
