Solid Steel - Aug24
Solid Steel in association with Serato (24th August).
It's a carnival warm up this week with DK setting the stage with new music from Chrissy Murderbot, Toddla T and The Bug, reggae selections from Prince Jammy, Turbo Belly and Barrington Levy, passing jungle soundsystems with DJ C and Tribe of Issachar and ending up at Norman Jay with The Flirtations.
Coldcut continue with the sweet vocals of Gregory Isaacs, then it's two from Roska, more Toddla T and Dekoy remixed by Pirate Soundsystem. Soca rhythms from Scrappy keep us on the move and Wiley drops in for two cuts, before we take a break with classic U-Roy, with Bunny Lee on production.
PC makes a special return to the show to continue the carnival atmosphere with two Jamaican cuts riding the Agony Riddim from Super Cat and King Kong. Then it's closer to home with DJ Vadim featuring Demolition Man and Roots Manuva with Bashment Boogie, followed by Solid Steel staple 'one Blood' by Junior Reid, classic jungle from Conquering Lion and ending with 'Walk and Skank' by Jah Screechy.
Our guest mix this week comes from Kiki Hitomi, a member of King Midas Sound on Hyperdub records alongside Kevin Martin (The Bug) and Roger Robinson. We hear their trademark sounds alongside music from The Kills remixed by The Bug, Bjork and Clause Four, plus we hear Kiki Hitomi revoicing tracks by Zomby, Mark Pritchard and Evian Christ as well.
