Solid Steel Radio 22/03/2013 - Coldcut, Fink & Natural Self

Solid Steel (22nd March) Coldcut in charge this week, easing in with a reggae selection featuring Horace Andy, Tapper Zukie and Baba Dread, before switching into the much sampled Anne Murray and stripping it right back with Unforscene. The beats get heavy with Clicks & Whistles, Krueger and Swindle on Deep Medi Musik, then more reggae from Lone Ranger and Peter Tosh and closing with legendary British jazz figure John Cameron.

In our 25th Anniversary slot we welcome back Fink, who has appeared many times on Solid Steel dating back to 1999. We asked for something a little different and taking a brief break from the studio in LA where he's demoing up the new Fink album, he delivers us 30 minutes of avant-bard-core for the ear waves. It's music from The Horrors, Bjork, Fever Ray and House of Black Lanterns, with a couple of remixes courtesy of 16 Bit and Scuba. The new Fink EP Warm Shadow is available for download this week.

Finally, it's a mix from Natural Self to close the show. His new album 'Neon hurts my eyes' is out now on Tru Thoughts and we get a taste of some of the tracks, including his great version of Laurie Anderson's 'O Superman', plus music from The Units, Innerzone Orchestra and the sublime 'The Other Song' by Son of Spirit from 1975.
