There’s nothing like it when it comes to UK Soul legend Omar and if you listened to the latest Gilles Peterson show you’ll know that Omar’s latest album is monster when droppin’ names like Estelle, Angie Stone and Stevie Wonder!
Fans of Tru-Thoughts with instantly recgonise Shapes 09:01 as a Robert Luis labour of love with the massive 29 track double CD showcasing all what’s best about the label and its wide range of artists.
