Boom Monk Ben

Solid Steel Show 2012-01-13 Boom Monk Ben, Parker and Grahmzilla

“It’s Boom Monk Ben with his first mix of the year and it’s a snap shot of what currently resides in his digital record box. Kicking off with Roach Gigz and the Bassbin Twins and hitting double time with Seiji and Hint. The tempo stays high and energy bubbling with big 2011 tracks from Dark Sky, Blawan, Mosca and the excellent Mia Dora remix for Roots Manuva, before ending in more soulful notes from Womack & Womack and HaHaHa & Raksha.
We start with Parker in hour 2 with his ‘Behind the bookcase’ mix. Bristol’s very own beat n’ bass head delivers music from Tipper, SPY and Julio Bashmore, alongside his own remixes of Bjork and Kate Bush. There’s also an exclusive play of Parker’s first single ‘Nowhere to hide’ on his own label Monkey Butler out next month. It’s all cut and fused together with the finesse and quirky soundbites we’ve become accustomed to.
We close the show with Grahmzilla, the Toronto based producer behind various projects including Thunderheist on Big Dada, Bassanovva and Nautiluss on Hemlock Records. Music on offer includes Purity Ring, Zomby, Lunice and Rustie, closing with Araabmusik and Drake.”

Solid Steel Show 2011-12-23 DJ Cheeba, Boom Monk Ben, DJ Moneyshot and Ruckus Roboticus

“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”

Solid Steel Show 2011-02-25 Boom Monk Ben and Johnny Faith

“Benny Boom is back in the saddle with another hour long snapshot of UK bass smashers mixed in with some choice cuts from USA and France. Upfront UK Funky, dubstep, grime, and good old fashioned house music make the grade with some tasty exclusives from Hint & soon to be massive Glasgow producer HaHaHa in there for the trainspotters. In hour 2 it’s a warm welcome back to Jonny Faith. Based in Sydney, Australia he’s known for his contribution to new hip-hop, beats and bass music with his pioneering radio show ‘For The Heads’ and his clubnight-cum-compilation ‘Headroom’ . Music featured includes Mux Mool, Lorn Gold Panda and Starkey, plus tracks from Jonny’s ‘Blue Sky on Mars’ EP out now on Civil Music.”

Solid Steel Show 2010-12-24 Boom Monk Ben, DJ Cheeba, Ruckus Roboticus and DJ Moneyshot

We continue our review of 2010 looking back at the most popular mixes by the ‘nu skool’ Solid Steel resident DJ’s, as voted by you the listeners. ‘In no particular order’, we kick off with Boom Monk Ben and a section from his mix back in September, hitting big dubstep tracks with Benga’s remix of Toddla T, Chali 2Na & Rusko, plus ragga flavours from Tanya Stephens and the oh so soulful voice of Erykah Badu given a superb remix by Seiji.

“Cheeba’s mix from February got your votes, with music from Waxfactor, Memory9, and Santogold, alongside music from the Ninja catalogue, where DJ Food and King Cannibal jostle for space with Roots Manuva and Hexstatic. In Hour 2, Ruckus Roboticus gets the nod for his May mix of contemporary beats, hip-hop, and soul to while away your lazy afternoons. Of course J Dilla is in there, lounging alongside Mos Def, Flying lotus and Jay Electronica. DJ Moneyshot’s ‘You Are The Infinity’ mix from February hit the right button, with crisp drum kicks of vintage Jungle added to a hypnotic dose of self-help records, Rock breaks, classic Hip-Hop and downtempo beats. Ann Peacock, Photek, Organized Konfusion, Pixies and Daedelus all get some treatment.”

“This week, Boom Monk Ben cranks up the tempo with a 26 track smash up of UK Funky, ragga garage, dubstep, chunky electronic house, rave stabs and nuff global bass to make that batty wind, with music from the likes of Roska, Lil Silva, Fort Knox Five and Redlight.
In the second hour it’s the return of Powercut with reggae flavours and cheeky bootlegs. On the decks we hear tracks from The Dynamics, JStar, Mr Benn and Rodney P, sliced and diced with The Nextmen, Mos Dub and Black Grass.”

Solid Steel Show 2009-12-25 Best of 2009 part 2 with DJ Cheeba, Boom Monk Ben, Ruckus Roboticus and DJ Moneyshot

“Solid Steel in association with Serato (25th December) We finish our review of 2009 looking back at the most popular mixes by the ‘nu skool’ Solid Steel residents, as voted by you the listeners.
‘In no particular order’, we kick off with DJ Cheeba and the audio part of his AV mix from September. Cutting up music (+visuals) from the Beastie Boys, Roots Manuva, Thunderheist and even Yo Gabba Gabba, it was your favourite mix from his contribution this year.
Boom Monk Ben got most votes for his November mix featuring bass heavy tracks from Starkey, Bassnectar, Rusko and the huge Joy Orbison, plus a cheeky bootleg of Dead Prez and retro edits of James Brown and Fats Waller.
You liked the Ruckus Roboticus mix from May which included his own excellent remix of Pase Rock, along with Chico Mann, Flying Lotus and Caetano Veloso.
It was DJ Moneyshot’s “Check Your Head” mix that stood out for you from his many fine contributions. Taking all the original beats from the classic Beastie Boys album he loops, re-edits and layers them into a mind-blowing odyssey, with Barrington Levy, Dr. John and The Fearless Four all featuring.”
