Independent Label Market: Brownswood Soundsystem


  • Global
  • Jazz/Funk/Soul

Spiritland and the Independent Label Market team up again for another day of unforgettable music through the Spiritland system.

Brownswood Recordings is the independent record label founded by DJ, record collector and broadcaster Gilles Peterson. Founded in 2006, it’s a platform for new artists to grow, and a space for established acts to break with tradition. An outlet for the eclectic breadths of Gilles’ taste as a DJ and collector, its early output broached new orchestral arrangements, full-throttle Japanese jazz and club-rooted soul music. Over a decade later, that inclusive attitude continues. Its output spans the new jazz messengers of the UK underground, fresh tangents in hip-hop-tipped-beatmaking, from snapshots of Havana's burgeoning club culture to the indefinable sound of Melbourne's rising underground. Brownswood SoundSystem brings this freshness alive with eclectic vibrant sets whether it be at festivals (Field Day), curating a stage at We Out Here festival or lighting up the dancefloor at The Great Escape, House of St Barnabas and Worldwide Festival Sete.
