Solid Steel Radio - 11-07-14 - Glenn Astro & Jon Phonics

In Hour 1 this week we're delighted to welcome Glenn Astro ahead of the release of his Amitriptyline EP on Space Hardware.

It's a beautiful mix featuring music from Damiano Von Erckert, Uffe, Leon Ware, IMYRMIND and Madlib. This is what he had to say; "I was preparing tracks for months because I was so hyped when I heard I could contribute a mix to this series. But at the end I used only about 20% of the tracks I have put aside and went for a more spontaneous approach instead... rather than delivering a flawless and completely thought through mix, it's now more kind of a vibe thing. So it's basically a conglomerate of records I like at the moment, some unreleased stuff and classics."

Jon Phonics takes over in Hour 2. His new EP White Neckle is out now on First Word (who are celebrating 10 years) and we hear tracks from the EP and many more of his productions. He tells us; "With my Solid Steel mix, I wanted to take the opportunity to give those unfamiliar with my music a little education in what I'm about. Therefore, this mix is a sort of journey through my discography - from my first 'half past calm' mixtape in 2010, to productions scheduled for release later this year via my most recent 'White Neckle' EP, alongside some bits I'm working on at the moment that have been straight two-tracked out of my MPC especially. There's some collaborations with my buddies S-type & Pedestrian, vocal features from Yasine, Rup, Masikah & T-bear + remixes of my productions from nice guys Slugabed & Kidkanevil."

Don't forget you can hear each week's Solid Steel show premiered on NTS on Thursday night / Friday morning at 2am here.
