Solid Steel - May 11.
Solid Steel in association with Serato (11th May).
Coldcut open with the strange and wonderful Connan Mockasin and slide effortlessly into classic Issac Hayes and the Trojan sounds of Vin Gordon. It's more reggae from Donovan Carless and Roy Panton, latin licks from Ray Lugo and original rap from the Last Poets. Then we hand over for a session from Big Dada artist Bang On freestyling over Souls of Mischief and Slick Rick, plus tracks from his new album (Sic). Cassius, Dirg Gerner and Fulgeance remixed by Dorian Concept close the first hour.
We welcome the legendary Shut Up and Dance for hour 2. They have been pioneers of UK dance music for over 22 years crossing through hip hop, acid house, rave and jungle with their own self titled label. Still doing it in 2012 with a new EP 'The only way is Hackney', we get an exclusive mix featuring tracks from the EP alongside Aquasky, Pyramid and Yoof.
Coldcut return with an old skool house set featuring Trax classics from Robert Owens, Phuture and Virgo.
