Solid Steel - July 20
Solid Steel in association with Serato (20th July).
It's DK holding it down once again and kicking off with another track from the forthcoming Cid Rim album, Genys & Piotrus Pan and Azelia Banks all on a similar wave. The Brooklyn Allstars bring a spiritual pause in the proceedings before another outing from Eprom, Danny Scrilla, Ean and new music from The Gaslamp Killer. We delve deeper with the incredible Dorothy Ashby and the Afro-beat sounds of Tony Allen and WITCH, before bringing it back up to date with Falty DL, Julio Bashmore and Sonarpilot to close.
In hour 2 we welcome The Invisible with a mix celebrating the release of their album Rispah on Ninja Tune. The Mercury nominated trio deliver an excellent selection of music from across the board, ranging from the dulcet tones of Scott Walker, Nick Cave and Portishead, to the twisted beats of Rustie, the leftfield hip hop of Slum Village and Shabazz Palaces, plus offerings from Grace Jones, Evian Christ and Human Chain.
