British-based DJ luminary Gilles Peterson is renowned for making and curating some of most prolific sounds from the underground.

Having founded global music radio platform Worldwide FM, based in London, and having interviewed some of his contemporaries in his series “The Psychology of DJing,” it was only fitting that we team him up with celebrated Brisbane producer Sampology.

Check out the pair’s chat below, where Sampology picked Gilles’ brain on the cusp of Gilles’ keynote address and Sampology’s EMC Studio workshop at the 2018 Electronic Music Conference in Sydney.

SAMPOLOGY: Having set up Acid Jazz, Talking Loud and Brownswood labels through the years, what key questions are crucial in defining a record label to steer it through all the nitty gritty decision making that follows?

GILLES PETERSON: Running a record label is all about the artists and the music. We see ourselves as a conduit that can help artists get their music to a wider audience. We work with artists who share our principles and who we believe in.
