Solid Steel - August 05.
Solid Steel in association with Serato (5th August).
This week DK starts proceedings with a track off the Shabazz Palaces album and continues with mid tempo cuts from Mr Scruff, Dego and the superb Andrew Wetherall remix of 'Watch me dance' by Toddla T. Then it's a 99 Records classic from Liquid Liquid and into new music from Offshore and Raffertie, before the haunting sounds of Zomby slip into Fink and Radiohead. We up the tempo with Maya Jane Coles, Martyn's new single and EXCLUSIVE tracks from CID Rim and Roots Manuva with 'Go Champ' from his forthcoming album on Big Dada. Finally it's more from Dark Sky, the epic "Ready Set Loop" from SBTRKT and lush sounds from Thundercat's new album on Brainfeeder to end the first half.

In the second hour it's Berlin based producer Robot Koch with a fine selection which features 2 tracks from his upcoming album (The Other Side), out in October on project mooncircle, which are heard in this mix for the first time. Also featured are more tunes from the Project Mooncircle label family, like KRTS from New York, Mexican vocal talent Graciela Maria and Russian beatsmith Pavel Dovgal.
It's friends and family on most of the tracks, so there are tunes by fellow artists like Ital Tek, Shlohmo, Ahu and Teielte from Poland, but it's not just brand new cutting edge beats but also some rare vintage 78 rpm shellac recordings from around the globe by Fatma El Chameya Sudaneya and Sexteto Habanero, re-released by the Honest Jon's label and some Lloyd Miller to close.
