Akkord + DJ Vadim – Solid Steel Show 2014-06-13

“Solid Steel (13th June) In Hour 1 this week we welcome Akkord ahead of the release of their new EP on the excellent Houndstooth label. The tracks Greyscale and Continuum from the EP feature in their mix, alongside music from Cloud Boat, Andy Stott, Shackleton and Kerridge. The deep and dark selection continues with unreleased music from Talk in Silence, plus tracks from Autechre and the Aphex Twin remix for Curve from 1993. HTH020 is released on 16th June on Houndstooth and is pressed on 180g grey wax, with debossed cover and postcard insert.
In Hour 2 our guest is DJ Vadim who first appeared on Solid Steel in 1996 back in the Kiss FM days and has featured regularly since. He steps up with a mix dedicated to his love of hip hop, reggae and dancehall, and for him ‘they are like brother and sister, children of the same parents, same struggles and desires. Different in production, but share so many things in common’. It’s another perfect mix for a hot day in London and features music from Yelloman, Roots Manuva, General Levy, Cutty Ranks and Top Cat, plus music from Vadim himself ahead of his new album Dubcatcher which is out on BBE next week.”

FACT Mix 421 by Akkord

“This week’s FACT mix comes from Houndstooth duo Akkord.
Originally designed as an anonymous project – though Akkord’s identity was eventually revealed as Apollo-associated producers Synkro and Indigo – Akkord introduced themselves with a brace of self-released 12?s in 2012. In truth, it felt like the group hadn’t found their identity at that point: those singles took cues from some of the underground’s most hyped acts (James Blake, Burial, Instra:mental) but although the surgical approach Akkord took to incorporating those acts’ characteristics was impressive, it didn’t exactly feel new – especially when presented anon.”
