Jamie Woon Interview for Polydor

In October, Mistral Productions produced an interview between Gilles Peterson and Jamie Woon, ahead of the release of Jamie's sophomore album, 'Making Time' on Polydor Records. 

The 10 minute video piece was shot at the legendary Konk Studios in North London, where Jamie recorded the album with engineer Lexxx, with the pair discussing various topics including what Jamie's been up to in the 4 years since his debut LP, and what the album writing process involved this time around.  

The video was premiere'ed over on Mahogany blog, and features live performances of 3 live tracks, also filmed and recorded at Konk Studios.
