LE BAIN: You started The Steve Reid Foundation as a tribute to the legendary NYC jazz drummer Steve Reid, who died from cancer in 2010. What memories do you have of him?
GILLES PETERSON: Steve was a trooper. He first communicated with me when I was on Kiss FM in London by sending me recordings of his band in Europe knowing that I would dig them. He was good at finding the source. He was hip to the DJ scene and underground music scene, even though he was of a different generation than me. He found a way to Four Tet through music and was a huge inspiration to all of us with his independent spirit and work ethic.
