Solid Steel Radio 07/05/2013 - DK, Yosi Horikawa & Peter Serafinowicz

Solid Steel (7th June) DK opens this week's show with 'Aquarius', probably the most played Boards of Canada track on Solid Steel, setting us up for the special second hour, plus Slugabed, new music from Items, a track from the Thundercat album Apocalypse, Scrimshire and Melodicore from the classic Leila album 'Like Weather' from 1998.

Yosi Horikawa takes over with a mix ahead of 'Vapor', his forthcoming debut album on the First Word record label. We hear two tracks from the album, plus more from Kidkanevil & Daisuke Tanabe, Jack DeJohnette, Smif-N-Wessun and Lewis McCallum.

For the 25th Anniversary slot in Hour 2, it's a pleasure to welcome Peter Serafinowicz to Solid Steel. Actor, comedian, the voice to Darth Maul in Star Wars, has his own TV show, co-wrote the brilliant Look Around You, video director, appeared in Spaced amongst many others .............. But for us, it's all about his impeccable taste in music. As a listener to Solid Steel and a massive fan of Boards of Canada, we invited Peter to share a selection of music to coincide with the release of 'Tomorrows Harvest'. With tracks from Aphex Twin, Boom Bip, Brian Eno, Samiyam, Actress, 80's Canadian TV, Benge and of course Boards of Canada, plus his own music from Look Around You as Gelg, sit back and enjoy a stroll through this BoC inspired mix.
