Solid Steel Show 2011-01-21 Solid Steel – DK, Point To C and Chris Read

“We start where we ended the last AV mix with the anthemic ‘Hyph Mngo’ by Joy Orbison and a few choice words from Sun Ra. We continue in a future vain with the Eliphino Remix for Kidkanevil, Maddslinky given a Toddla T lick, and the heavy ‘Work them’ by Ramadanman. It’s a Ninja Trio and a Big Dada double, while James Blake floats over the Altrice remix of Caribou, before we turn up the bass to 11 for Bassnectar. The beats stay heavy as we skip through the Jamie XX remix for Gil Scott-Heron, an ‘old skool’ trio mixed with RackNRuin and Vent for extra dance floor punch, and it’s a D n B finish with the DJ Marky remix of ‘Wile Out’ by Zinc, Sunny by James Brown tweaked by Featurecast and we end on the sublime Flying Lotus remix for Andreya Triana. Listen, Watch and Enjoy. We take it down for hour 2 with a mix from Point to C. It’s a down-tempo neck snapper mixed flawlessly, taking in cuts from Afrika HiTech, Quest and Quadron, plus another track from Gil Scott-Heron with the beautiful ‘Me And The Devil’. Chris Read pops up for the last part with a look back to 1989 and a celebration of classic rap tracks from a golden era. This is just part of a regular night he does taking a certain year in Rap’s history and deftly mixing together the likes of Big Daddy Kane, EPMD, Main Source and Ultramagnetic MCs.

Solid Steel Show 2010-01-08 mixes by Strictly Kev, Chris Read and Danny Delta

“Solid Steel in association with Serato (January 8th) Strictly Kev aka DJ Food showcases his new EP – The Shape Of Things That Hum alongside a collection of tracks that influenced him whilst making it as well as a few favourites from 2009. EP ingredients like The The, King Cannibal and John Rydgren sit alongside a slew of Ninja and Big Dada artists (including The Slew) giving an insight into what was on the deck at the end of the decade.
In the second hour, friends of Solid Steel, Chris Read and Danny Delta present their ‘Game on’ mix from last year. There’s a smattering of hip hop leading into some jazzier beats, including some interesting edits of classic tunes from the likes of Donald Byrd, Franki Valli and Jean Knight amongst others.”
