A kaleidoscope of sounds from Worldwide FM’s exuberant Creative Director.
Yo! Selector takes you into the deepest corners of your favourite DJ’s record bag.
From the weirdest bargain bin finds, to the juiciest slow jams, rarest samples and stone-cold floor-emptiers, every DJ has his or her own individual approach to building a set. It’s these records that we’re setting out to discover and share with you.
East Londoner Thris Tian aka Thristian Richards is a longtime champion of music of all shapes and sizes.
From his early days as a co-founder of online music platform Boiler Room to his current role as Creative Director of Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM alongside DJ sets worldwide, Richards has remained one of the friendliest, enthusiastic and forward-thinking members of the UK music scene.
Laying down everything from South Korean prog rock and eighties soundtrack theme tunes to Fela afrofunk and sultry D’Angelo slow jams, we caught up with Thris Tian to find out all about his genre-blending sets.
