Solid Steel Show 2011-06-10 A La Fu and Strictly Kev

“This week we welcome A La Fu, the man behind many excellent mixtapes and podcasts for Big Dada. This mix for Solid Steel has been recorded as an accompaniment to A La Fu’s new release DJ Memoirs: Choose Your Own Adventure. The music on offer starts with Redinho, Traxman and plenty of Juke flavoured delights from Planet Mu. The beats drop down for True Tiger and Aardvarck, before taking it back up for tracks from Ramadanman, Seiji and Hot City, ending on ‘No Sympathy’ from Super Furry Animals. In hour 2 Strictly Kev presents his ‘Lynch Party mix Part 1’. Brendan Lynch is probably best known for his remixes and production work for the likes of Paul Weller, Primal Scream and Ocean Colour Scene. In his Lynchmob guise, alongside Max Heyesggggg, he’s arguably been responsible for the more experimental moments in these groups’ careers, taking tracks and twisting them inside out. In the first of two mixes, Strictly Kev collects the best of these for a downtempo set of heavy beats, dub and electronics, the modfather features on half of it but this is his most funky, out there material.”

Solid Steel Show 2011-02-18 DJ Redrum and Strictly Kev

“This week Redrum starts the show with his Boomtape mix. The Barcelona based French DJ kicks off with funky breaks courtesy of Ali B and gets progressively tougher with Vent and Vibesquad. We continue with music from Wiley, Redlight and Poirier, plus the bass heavy Doorly remix of the Scruff classic ‘Get a move on’. This is spiced with different latino, oriental and balkan flavours throughout, before ending on a dubstep note. Strictly Kev revisits hip hop from 1989 having been asked to play at Classic Material, a night run by Chris Read (whose mix we recently featured). Each month the night celebrates a year from Hip Hop’s past. It was the turn of 1989 which was a special year, rich in musical delights with the beginnings of gangster rap taking over Hip Hop and the emergence of De La Soul’s Daisy Age with their incredible ‘3 Feet High & Rising’ album. All this plus the Beastie Boys, Gang Starr, Jungle Brothers and the excellent ‘Calm down’ by Most Wanted.”

Solid Steel Show 2010-11-05 United States of Audio and Strictly Kev

“The Ninja Tune XX celebrations continue touring the world dropping into Japan this weekend and we have another all Ninja Tune show this week. United States of Audio has a track on the boxset with his remix of Coldcut’s ‘More Beats and Pieces’ and he delves through the catalogue to spin his favourite tracks from the last 20 years. Ninja Tune first became known for ‘Trip Hop’, originally alluding to ‘Trippy Hip Hop’, but what about all the other trippy music released on the label over the years? Bands like Super Numeri, The Slew, Yppah or the Dragons? Strictly Kev has put together an hour of guitar fuzz, wah wah, delay and heavy beats focusing on the acid rock and psychedelic stylings of the label.”

Solid Steel Show 2010-05-07 Strictly Kev and Moon Wiring Club

“Solid Steel in association with Serato (7th May) This week Strictly Kev brews up a mix with a distinct whiff of Brit nostalgia taking in vintage electronica, psychedelic folk, outer space beats and deep dubstep. Both The Simonsound and Moon Wiring Club feature three times and we have guest mixes from them this and next week, plus tracks from Blockhead, James Pants and Gil Scott Heron.

In Hour 2 an Endless Teatime can be a very long time indeed, but Purveyors of Confusing English Electronic Music, the Moon Wiring Club, have selected a Confectioner’s Radiogram of aural treats to accompany your 432nd cuppa.
Expect a connoisseurs earful of Library Music, Instrumental Hip-hop, adapted antique 8bit sounds, dusted electronica and saucy Synth-pop. All supremely buttered-up with a diabolical assortment of English voice snippets, and choice selections from the MWC back-catalogue tea-trolley.”

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.”

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.”

Solid Steel Show 2009-12-11 Strictly Kev, Sub Focus and The Beekeepers

“Solid Steel in association with Serato (11 th December) Fresh from playing Warp’s 20th birthday bash in London Strictly lays down part 1 of a special Blech 20 set for the first hour. Heavy with classic 90’s era heavy-weights like Aphex, Autechre, LFO and Squarepusher he goes for the tricky mixes before upping the tempo and finally stretching out in ambient mode for the final 10 minutes. Part 2 should be available via the Warp mailing list before Xmas.

Sub Focus kicks off hour 2 with a trademark high octane mix of tracks from Culture Shock, Brookes Brothers, Deadmau5 and tracks & remixes from the man himself, including the awesome Timewarp and more cuts from his self titled album.

To close the show, we have The Beekeepers. Made up of Bristol’s Nu Funk pioneer Boca45 and rising star Parker, they produce some badass B Funk and share a mutual love of beats, breaks and Bristol City. The mix features music from their Bee Funk EP on Jalepeno that takes in the vast array of influences that glide through soul, breaks, funk, rock, classical and back again.”
