Solid Steel Radio 02/12/2011 - Hexstatic, DJ Irk

Robin Hexstatic back in the mix again this week. We start off with classic Angie Stone remixed twice, first by Gatto Viola and then beefed up by Doc Daneka and on into some vintage house from Karen Pollack remixed by the mighty Murk. Julio Bashmore’s inimitable "Battle For Middle You" mixes nicely into some more vintage house, this time the classic "Break Of Dawn" from Rhythm On The Loose. Bang up to date now with Dauwd’s "Ikopol", new Martyn with the epic "We Are You In The Future" and a Hexstatic favorite - Akira Kiteshi with the bulging bass of "Transmission". Four Tet’s lovely remix of Caribou brings us down nicely for a bit, before we slam into new Ninja Tune signing Starkey with "Villagers". It's more from the label courtesy of 16 Bit’s remix of Amon Tobin’s "Surge", then a brilliant Amen-heavy remix of Africa Hitech leads into the Transformers sampling drumstep of Heist, before we mellow things down with Isotroph and another fave beatsmith, George Lenton, with "On Repeat".

In hour 2 DJ Irk presents his 'Too Much Pressure' mix, kicking off in his typical style with a sample heavy spoken word intro and onto some chunky west-coast beats from favourites illGates and Bassnectar, then transitioing through funk and blues and on to a few rocky beats from Kid Koala and DJ Shadow. Picking up the pace we move on to some funky midtempo sounds, including Dave Nada and Tipper, then finally out to new fLako wonkiness and low-end from Gatekeeper, Joker and Halp.
