solid steel - Sept 23.
Solid Steel in association with Serato (23rd September).
This week DJ Irk delivers his brand new 'Unbelievable Krimewave' mix and it's a weighty collection of raucous beats and heavy bass. Revelling in the darker side of UK electronic music culture, the mix features massive grime, hiphop and DnB cuts from the likes of Rival & Darq E Freaker, Drapez, Durrty Goodz, Braintax, Breakage, L.V. & Joshua Idehen, Spor and Alix Perez, and also includes several exclusive edits and promos. It closes out with a hefty kick back to reality in the form of the beautiful, haunting track River by Hiatus & Shura.
