Gilles Peterson Lines Up 'Masterpiece' for Ministry of Sound

Gilles Peterson Lines Up 'Masterpiece' for Ministry of Sound
Between stints as a label manager, club DJ and radio personality, Gilles Peterson knows a thing or two about dance music. The BBC personality has also had a hand in shaping some well-rounded compilations over the years, and he's at it again with the new Ministry of Sound Masterpiece compilation.

The fourth in the series -- following entries from Francois K, Jazzie B, and Fabio and Grooverider -- the latest Masterpiece flexes Peterson's all-encompassing knowledge of the club scene. A press release explains that the set, spread out over three discs titled "Dusk," "Dawn" and "Twilight," explores "all corners of the electronic music spectrum," with Peterson selecting tracks from such artists as Four Tet, Scuba, Kode9, Arthur Russell's Dinosaur L and Wagon Christ. All the while, the epic collection reveals "the full breadth of Peterson's eclectic style." You can check out the mammoth tracklisting below.

Ministry of Sound will issue Masterpiece September 19 in the UK, with a North American release set for August 2, according to Amazon.
