Solid Steel - Sept. 02
Solid Steel in association with Serato (2nd September).
This week we welcome back Fourtet who had his first mix on Solid Steel 10 years ago, back in 2001. He was also part of a North American Solid Steel tour that year alongside DJ Food, DK and Bonobo. They all regrouped after the tour back at BBC London for a Solid Steel show spinning records bought only on that tour (Those signed up to the mailing list will be getting a download link for that classic show). His mix celebrates the forthcoming release of his Fabric Live CD and we get a taste of some of the tracks included, with music from Michael Redolfi, Crazy Bald Heads and KMA, plus new music from Fourtet himself.

DK opens the second hour with Sam Irl remixed by Cid Rim and DELS new single Capsize, remixed by Marla. Then it's more new music from Scuba, which drifts nicely into the Stepkids and the strange sounds of Dr Philter Banx from 1975, plus another track off the excellent Paul White album.
This is followed by an interview with Big Dada artist DELS. He talks about his creative process in depth including how he hooked up with Kwes, Roots Manuva, Joe Goddard + Micachu to make his acclaimed album "GOB", going to the early sidewinder raves, as well talking us through some of the tracks that influenced him growing up, such as Aretha Franklin, Wu Tang Clan, Outkast, Wiley + Animal Collective.
