MV4  was recorded as a live session at London’s Maida Vale Studios, which appeared on an episode of Peterson’s BBC Radio Six show.

It features keyboardist Joe Armon-Jones, percussionist/producer Marijus Aleksa, singer Fatima, saxophonist Nubya Garcia, guitarist Oscar Jerome, singer/guitarist Hak Baker, and Bristol-based collective Ishmael Ensemble.
