Solid Steel - July 8.
Solid Steel in association with Serato (8th July).
Irk's back, and this time he's on a dubstep, grime and hiphop mission, with this special collaboration mix for Solid Steel and Montreal's bassmusic podcast J'aime Le Dubstep. We kick off with a few serious UK sounds from Durrty Goodz and BeggarFam, then hit some swirling electronic heaviness from Matta and Siriusmo. Next it's over to the hiphop for fresh Raekwon and Beasties, plus pure wonkiness from Eprom and South London's KeepUp! crew. And finally back to more beats and bass from the likes of Culprate and Pinch & Roska, plus Kid Koala's The Slew project, Wick-It's Black Keys refix and a familiar Bristol beat right at the end to tie it all up.

Coldcut step up for the second week with Matt Black providing a more laid back party mix kicking off with Afro and reggae sounds courtesy of Mulatu Astatke and Sound Dimension. It's a brief switch up with Sub Focus and the unmistakable sound of Junior Read, classic beats from Lamb and Jake Slazenger, before weaving through Imagination, Jay Z and the lush strings of Love Unlimited Orchestra. We draw to a close with classics from Fela Kuti and James Brown, and recent cuts from Tricksi and Blend aka Mishkin. That's some party!
