Solid Steel Show 2009-12-18 Best of 2009 part 1 with DK, Strictly Kev and Mr Armtone

“Solid Steel in association with Serato (18th December) We start our review of 2009 looking back at the most popular mixes as voted by you the listeners. We start with the ‘old skool’ residents with DK and Strictly Kev having their most popular mixes revisited, followed by the guest mix of the year.
DK’s mix from April, is a bass heavy start with Two Fingers remixed by Spor, Mix n Blend and Bassnectar’s awesome ‘Heads Up’, followed by the massive Skream mix of La Roux. Classic go-go from Trouble Funk and Arcadion with their own take, plus jazz from Tenorio Jr and funky breaks from Radio trip.
Strictly Kev’s July set gave us a taste of songs that inspired and helped form his EP, together with the tracks themselves. All the artists who feature on the record are present from The Dragons, Ken Nordine, Dr. Rubberfunk, Natural Self and Bundy K Brown.
The winner of the guest mix of the year 2009 is Mr Armtone from Russia. It’s a mix across the board, as we like it, starting on an electro tip with Visage, A-Skillz and Krafty Kuts, all things dub with Augustus Pablo and Digital Mystikz, plus Drum and Bass from 4 Hero, High Contrast and Cyantific wrapping around Nickleback. The Headhunters, Dr Rubberfunk and Joe Henry take it down to a more soulful close. Congratulations Mr Armtone.”
