“We start our review of the most popular mixes by the Solid Steel resident DJ’s in 2011, as voted by you the listeners. ‘In no particular order’ we kick off with DJ Cheeba and his mix from February which was also one of our many AV mixes this year, called ‘Revenge Of The Nerd’. A quick fire, attention frying, mash of sure fire club hits, stone cold classics, countless acapellas and turntable tricknology, all set to a visual feast of music videos, pop culture cameos, kung fu interludes and cinematic delights.
Boom Monk Ben’s mix from June got your vote with exclusives from main man Hint, T.Williams dub of Stay Away by Charli XCX, Mia Dora, DJ Zinc and this year’s club anthem ‘Battle for middle you’ by Julio Bashmore.
In hour 2 the DJ Moneyshot mix from May this year shone out for you, with classic hip-hop, pedigree funk and wobbly breaks. Music in the pot from Gramatik, Featurecast and Moneyshot’s Joe Driscoll remix, plus there’s tracks from Run DMC, Vent and DJ Quik.
It was the Ruckus Roboticus ‘Thanksgiving mix’ from November that was a favourite amongst listeners with a musical tribute to all the people and things Ruckus is thankful for everyday (not just on Thanksgiving!). In the mix, are soulful classics from Otis Redding and Spanky Wilson; funky classics from Sly and The Family Stone & Maceo And All The King’s Men; hip-hop from Afrika Bambaataa and Biz Markie; disco from Donald Byrd and William DeVaughn, plus jazz from Melvin Sparks RIP”
