Pursuit Grooves on Gilles Peterson!
One of the warmest, most brilliant, personable, most genuine spirits I know. Hailing from the nation's capital, emcee/ producer/ graphic-visual artist Pursuit Grooves has had quite a journey from point A to point B. She was one of the participants in the 2008 Barcelona edition of the lauded migrating institution of higher sonic learning, Red Bull Music Academy.
Amidst her travels, she's racked up dates around the globe spinning and performing along side the likes of Onra, Ras G, and the otherworldly electronic golden child Flying Lotus. With her special recipe of bleeps and rhymes, she's managed to make quite a name for herself in the ethereal sonic wonderland of soultronica.
And now, fresh on the heels of her debut full length album Fox Trot Mannerisms on the U.K.-based Tectonic Records, Pursuit Grooves takes a minute from her crazy schedule to sit in with Gilles Peterson on his weekly award-winning BBC-Radio One radio show Worldwide.
For all my international pleasure seekers, listen to and cop Fox Trot Mannerisms here! If you're in the U.S., you can cop here! Available on CD, digital, & vinyl!
