Solid Steel - August 12.
Solid Steel in association with Serato (12th August).
This week we have a mix from Ninja Tune artist Shuttle and it's straight in with a remix for Chaos In The CBD, followed by Fantastic Mr Fox remixing Hyetal and Addison Grrove once again pinching a slice of Spank Rock for his 'Bad Things' cut. Mosca, a soulful track off the Toddla T album and synth sounds from Capsule close the mix.
DK takes up the reigns with yet another track from the Dark Sky EP on 50 Weapons, awesome new cut 'Hex' from Pangaea and twisted piano stabs from Hudson Mohawke. We switch with the epic gospel tinged vocals of Michael Watford on 90's New York house classic 'My Love' , another spin for Maya Jane Coles and the 'Made in Detroit mix' of another 90's house track from Chez Damier before closing with Disco from Queen Yahna which sets us up nicely for our guest in hour 2.

We welcome the legendary Norman Jay MBE for the second hour, who's reputation as a DJ spans decades and was part of the original roster of DJ's alongside Coldcut on the pirate Kiss FM, as well as BBC London. He is also known for his Good Times Sound System at Notting Hill Carnival and this mix celebrates the release of his compilation on Strut commemorating 30 years. Tracks include Ghetto Disco by Ted Taylor, boogie rarity Dreamin by Zalmac, the Henrik Schwarz remix for The Detroit Experiment and soul legend Curtis Mayfield, before winding down with Brazilian grooves from Attic Tree and skanking reggae from Jacob Miller.
