Solid Steel Radio 18/01/2013 - DK, Ben UFO & Luke Vibert

Solid Steel (18th January) This week we feature a mix from Ben UFO celebrating the release of his Fabric Live CD. We kick off with Helm and a new track from Pev & Kowton on the Hessle Audio label that he runs alongside Pearson Sound and Pangaea. Then it's onto the Mark Fell remix for Fennesz, Pairs from the excellent Daphni and a classic Nu Groove cut from N.Y. House'n Authority and a recent Planet E track from Carls Davis.

DK steps up to highlight forthcoming releases from the Ninja Tune family of labels. Big Dada is represented with tracks from new signing VISION, the grandaddy of UK hip hop Roots Manuva and the legendary DobieFaltyDL features 4 times with tracks off his  Hardcourage album on Ninja Tune, his remix of Dobie and remixed by MartynThe Bug returns with the awesome Warrior Queen on Acid Ragga and Clark does a fine remix for Letherette, plus tracks from Lapalux on Brainfeeder and Moiré on Werkdiscs.

We move into Hour 2 and for our 25th Anniversary we encouraged guests to deliver something different. This week Luke Vibert (who has appeared many times on the show) does exactly that with a high octane opening section showcasing the edit kings from the late eighties. Often found on the b-side of club records, editors such as Omar Santana, Carlos BerriosChep Nunez and the Latin Rascals transformed tracks with quick fire cuts for artists like Rochelle, Corina, Bad Boy Orchestra, Stone and Sweet Sensation who are all featured and we get a Luke Vibert treatment on top. Brand New Funk and Ethel Beatty offer a respite from all this, as well as a sublime gospel track from Pastor TL Barrett, before closing with Omar Souleyman, Tipper and Tomita.
