Solid Steel (8/26/2011)

Had to post this one. Solid Steel's gone and let DK rock the first hour, and allowed motherfucking Skream drops in for the second hour, with a special mix of his influences (featuring everything from Prince to The Bucketheads). Love mixes like this that truly showcase what someone feels represents in the new shit they create. Enjoy this one.

Parts 1 + 2: DK

This week DK dives straight in with the super heavy 'Break Broke' by T.Williams, Zed Bias alongside Mark Pritchard, a second spin for the Roots Manuva album cut 'Go champ' and new music from Scuba. We stay on a house tip with Martyn and slip back to '89 with Carl Craig's first remix on KMS Records, before going deep with his Planet E classic 'At Les'. We continue with forthcoming releases from Fourtet, Pangaea and the Breakage remix of Roots Manuva's single 'Get the get'. Then it's a second track from Zed Bias, this time alongside our guest Skream, followed by a carnival selection from Sizzla, Burro Banton and Cutty Ranks. We end with two songs co-written by Nick Ashford RIP starting with 'California Soul' sung this time by Edwin Starr and then alongside his wife Valerie Simpson with the epic 'Stay Free' .

Parts 3 + 4: Skream

For the second hour, it's a warm welcome to Skream who treats us to an exclusive Disco flavoured mix especially for Solid Steel. He's better known for his dubstep productions, but his influences spread far and wide and you only have to check out some of his early sessions on Rinse FM to see that Disco and Funk are well represented. The mix starts out with Canadian synth group Lime, moving onto classic 80's boogie sounds from Tony Lee and the jazz-funk tinged 'Space Bass' by Slick. We also get the sampled 'Groovin You' by Harvey Mason and move onto more recent music from The Bucketheads and Daft Punk, before Prince and Five Special close the show.
