solid steel - oct 26th
Solid Steel in association with Serato (26th October).
The Herbaliser celebrate the release of their new album 'There were seven' with a mix by Ollie Teeba. It kicks off with Bombay Royale and their take on vintage Indian Cinema classics, then onto the DJ Numark edit of Ernie Hines and into Mr Chop with their own twist. Then it's recent hip hop from Freestyle Professors feat Sadat X, The Legion and Alchemist, a track from The Herbaliser album given an extra dub rinse, two appearances from Large Professor and closing with an Axelrod inspired track from Monophonics. You can catch The Herbaliser live at the Forum in London on 27th Oct alongside DJ Food.
It's a welcome return to Solid Steel for Z-Trip with a mix created for the Shepard Fairey exhibition 'Sound & Vision' in London. Fairey reached out to producer and DJ, Z-Trip to create a soundtrack that embodies the spirit of the show. Z-Trip went to work immediately to produce something worthy of Fairey's vision. Z-Trip comments "Shepard does visually what I do musically. We have many of the same influences, it made perfect sense for us to collaborate on Sound and Vision, I was honored to do it." In typical Z-Trip style it's a total mash up of music from artists like Black Sabbath, Prodigy and Public Enemy through to David bowie, SBTRKT and Bob Marley.
DK drops in to close the show with forthcoming music from Dobie, a track from the Death Grips album, dub versions from Jah Warrior and Grace Jones, plus Jesse Boykins III & Melo-X and Roses Gabor.
