Leo Gilbert

On my show this month:
Four scintillating hours from Leo filled with 52 tunes to swoon to in the romantic month of February, a mixture of the greatest from the last couple of months and a hint of a belated best of 2020 retrospective thrown in for good measure.
Once again, Leo has an incredibly international show, with tunes from (among other places) Australia, Mexico, Germany, France, Brazil, Colombia, Sudan, Norway, South Africa, Uganda, Ghana, Egypt, Ireland and Mauritius!
Among the artists are: Ti L'Afrique, La Femme, Soulwax, For Those I Love, Alex Maas, A Lily & Lisel, Fat Frog, Laura Cannell & Kate Ellis, Andrew McCubbin, Dijit, Amaarae, Swordman Kitala & Tom Blip, Cruel Boyz and Pom Poko.
He also has (what felt like a bit of a scoop at the time of recording) the new singles from Blanck Mass and Mogwai.
Tune in to Leo's February show and feel your heart beat just that little bit faster!

On the show NEXT month:
Four hours of fun and frolics from Leo, with a record-breaking 54 tunes from around the world.
Among the artists are Brastas eva, Cryogeyser, Kuupuu, Half Japanese, Pinhdar and Moonchild Sanelly.
He has Vietnamese pro-capitalist pop, South African dance music, Polish techno, Algerian sounds, Portuguese fado, Italian electro-pop played on home-made instruments and a ragbag of genres from just about every corner of the globe.
Leo has also risked ostracisation by playing a tune that he reckons no other Dandelion DJ has played or would consider playing.

Biography:
I am in many ways your typical John Peel fan. I grew up listening to his shows from the era of punk rock until his death, and, with increasing obsessiveness, compiled cassettes, mini discs and finally mp3 playlists of the best tunes. Music runs through my family’s veins, and in me this takes the form of a compulsive search for new sounds. As John Peel used to put it, what I really want to hear is something I haven’t heard before.

Envy fills me when I read what my Dandelion collaborators have achieved in promoting, making and playing music, but my life as a teacher for the past quarter of a century has squeezed out any time for, well, pretty much anything apart from listening to and appreciating what continues to be made musically across the world. At last, though, I have found the space to pursue what has long been an ambition and can attempt to meet the stellar broadcasting standards set by my volunteer colleagues by sharing my love of new music with Dandelion listeners. I really hope at least some of what you hear gets its hooks into you.
