Solid Steel Radio 22-11-13 - The Amorphous Androgynous, DJ Food, Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire)

The Amorphous Androgynous (aka The Future Sound of London) grace us with a selection of tracks and inspirations from their newly released albums, The Cartel Vol. 1&2.

Based around the theme of Psychesploitation - a mix of funky '70s cop soundtracks and fuzzed up Blacksploitation flicks - it's the sound of Get Carter's swinging London and the sleazy San Francisco of Dirty Harry. Both volumes can be bought from their online store at fsoldigital.com

DJ Food takes us down a dark, synthetic future route full of esoteric pieces more at home in sci-fi soundtracks and public information films. Tracks feature from compilations, The Sound of Belgium, Music Sans Frontiers and Space Oddities as does music from the new Richard Norris/Luke Insect collaboration Dark Seed.

In Hour 2 we welcome Stephen Mallinder, a founding member of the hugely influential Cabaret Voltaire, who were pioneers in British experimental electronic, industrial music and visual art. He joins the Solid Steel 25th Anniversary celebrations and says of his mix;

"A selection of music from peers, associates, co-conspirators, influences and baton-carriers. Starting with early head-turners This Heat (1978) and filtered through the mix claps from composer Steve Reich (1972) onto post-punkers 23 Skidoo who I'd gigged and recorded with.

A couple of FSOL tracks - covert Cabs somewhere in there and back up north to Sheffield's first real label WARP - the original Forgemasters reworked by bleepers Unique 3, The Black Dog posse and sonic provocateurs supreme, Autechre. An offering from my own Cabaret Voltaire - a rework of Yashar with the original 70 billion people sample.

Keith le Blanc and co - Major Malfunction, classic tough electro, there's a whole history from Sugarhill to Tackhead in there. And rounded off with our one-time co-conspiritor On-U's Adrian Sherwood's mix of metal-machiners Einstürzende Neubauten, complete with sniff sample.

All spiced with some period spoken word courtesy of Malcolm X, Mr Burroughs and JG Ballard stories and lovingly mixed by hand. Cheers Mal, Stephen Mallinder"

Cabaret Voltaire # 8385 Collected Works box set is available now and you can follow Stephen Mallinder on Twitter for more information about his solo and collaborative works.
