Solid Steel Show 2011-03-25 DJ Irk, Pearson Sound and DK

“Irk steps back up to the Solid Steel decks for the first time since winning last year’s MOTY title, bringing with him his usual knack for juxtaposing quality track sequences with detailed scratch prowess and absurd sampling. He sets up with another signature hiphop intro, then makes a break for some bone-crunching beats from the likes of Broken Note, Bassnectar and our very own King Cannibal. Then it’s on to some electro-hiphop flavours, showcasing a bunch of great new sounds from friendly producers the world over, including Dizz1, Cherry Chan and Kiat, and irk’s Montreal-based pal Living Stone. Throw in a Bonobo track from the NinjaTune XX celebrations and a couple of UK hiphop giants on the way then it’s over to the dubstep and breaks for a solid landing. In Hour 2, Pearson Sound celebrates the release of his Fabric Live CD this week with a mix showcasing just some of the tracks from the mix. Also known as Ramadanman, we get to hear music from both moniker’s alongside tracks from joy o, Randomer and Kode9 & spaceape. DK continues in a similar vein with Boddika and the Sepalcure remix of Tailor-made by Deadelus, before taking it right down with more from Matthewdavid, recent guest Jonny Faith and two Blue Note classics from Alphonse Mouzon and the sublime ‘Harlem River Drive’ by Bobbi Humphrey.”
