Le Guess Who? festival profiles Shabaka Hutchings ahead of his role as guest curator

As with recent years, Utrecht's Le Guess Who? festival will this year invite a handful of people to guest curate parts of the line-up. Shabaka Hutchings is one of those people and the festival has highlighted his work via a new video portrait which you can watch above.

In the video, the saxophonist who makes up part of Sons of Kemet, disccuses Impulse!, the label to which he is signed. "It feels like signing with Impulse! has given validity to the way I've perceived my music act," he offers.

He also goes into detail on his curated programme at this year's festival, which will see the likes of Kojey Radical, Ill Considered, Bo Ningen and Sons of Kemet playing live. The video was filmed between London and Utrecht.

This year's Le Guess Who? takes place from November 8-11. You can check the extensive line-up, and get tickets, here.
