“Solid Steel (29th November) Toddla T takes his turn to help celebrate our 25th birthday with a mix in his own unique style. The Steel City rudeboy drops a whole heap of brand new music with the Toddla T dub of Duppy by Timberlee kicking off the show, followed by Zouk Bass rhythms from KJ’s and Sandwich Island Bass out of Hawaii and Mark Pritchard with the excellent ‘Make a livin’. It’s more new tracks from Recloose and the first of two spins this week for Ashley Beedle with the Maddslinky remix of Saturday up first on Toddla’s own Girls Music label. Then it’s Donae’o, followed by M.I.A., Mr Mitch remixing Wiley and the sublime vocals of Sampha, all wrapped up with links and dub delays by a man like Toddla T.
In Hour 2 the countdown starts for the Solid Steel 25th Anniversary night at Fire in London with a mix from DK that features some of the artists playing including Mr Scruff, Robin Hexstatic, Four Tet and the new single from Illum Sphere. There’s more new music from Ninja Tune with forthcoming tracks from Falty DL, Beat Spacek and a Maya Jane Coles remix for Bonobo.
DJ Food steps up with a companion piece to last week’s 30 minute mix – Strictly Kev delves deeper and darker into ghostly electronic waters. An acoustic cover of Boards of Canada’s Reach For the Dead, V.I.V.E.K.’s stunning Mantra and Machinedrum’s Centre Your Love lighten the mood slghtly before we delve into witchcraft and sounds from abandoned buildings.”
