Inspiration: Gilles Peterson

Legendary UK DJ Gilles Peterson has a new interview series where he talks to big DJs about the psychology of DJing, which is kind of an untapped topic, and really interesting to us for obvious reasons. He digs in on questions like balancing partying and health, motivation, bad gigs, accessing emotions through music – really all sorts of things that go through our minds at work and after. You can hear the first five episodes on Mixcloud, and a good place to start is with The Black Madonna, who tells a remarkable story of completely dumping her DJ career and starting over from scratch.
