The winter edition of superstar DJ Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide festival is returning to the little-known Swiss ski town of Leysin, a dance music celebration where small is beautiful. The DJ has created a festival playlist for us, too
Electro, dubstep, nu disco, footwork, hip-hop, UK funky, deep house … napcore … Just a handful of the dance music genres that rocked my snowboard boots last March at DJ Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide festival at Leysin in the Swiss Alps.
Apart from that last one, that is. Napcore was the pre-dinner snooze strategy my ski buddy and I adopted to make sure we experienced Leysin’s pistes to the max, as well as the event’s sonic riches.
