Solid Steel - August 19.
Solid Steel in association with Serato (19th August).
This week Dexpert returns for another mix starting off on a hip hop tip with recent releases from Wagon Christ and Lunice rubbing shoulders with some classic cuts from Rae & Christian and Nightmares On Wax, before upping the tempo into a brief detour through 80s electro funk courtesy of Dazz Band and Herbie Hancock and then onto some of his favourite bass flavoured releases from XXXY, Baobinga and Kastle amongst others.

DK opens the second hour with 3 tracks off the excellent new Paul White album, plus more new hip hop from Danny Brown, lush beats from Cohen on the Botanika label and another track from the Thundercat album. Then it's jazz from Stanley Clarke, sweet vocals from Nostalgia 77 and the Stepkids, plus a nod to Eugene McDaniels RIP and Gaslamp Killer making way for our second guest.
Echo Park ends the show with a mix of mainly unreleased beats off his Ugly Boy label. The LA born artist has recently signed to Skream's Disfigured Dubz label and here he showcases likeminded artists alongside his own work taking us through "Nintendo noir bleeps, peyote-munching George Clinton psyche-funk, and above all pure, sunshine-infused soul melodies".
