Kicking off 2011 in fine style, Worldwide Family is a new series from Brownswood Recordings that will see label head Gilles Peterson hand over compiling duties to trusted friends of the label in our perpetual pursuit of the perfect beat. And who better to launch this new venture into orbit than two of our closest cohorts: Lefto and Simbad. Both gents are globetrotting DJs, respected selectors (with web-like worldwide connections) and the two are firm friends. What’s more, they have repped Brownswood from the beginning.

27 tracks deep, Worldwide Family Vol.1 is released on 3rd January 2011 and it sets the bar sky high for future instalments. Reaching out to their respective global networks, Lefto and Simbad have each compiled a stellar selection of exclusive jams that sum up their individual and inimitable styles.
