Solid Steel Radio 01/06/2012 - Coldcut, Hyetal, DK

Solid Steel in association with Serato (1 June) 

Coldcut launch into old skool house from '92 with Miranda and keep it dark with Dizz1, Dem Franchise Boyz and Kryptic Minds. Then it's a brief nod to the Jubilee with Big Youth (well, he mentions the Queen), afro flavours from King Sunny Ade and Les Barons, summer  Latin sounds from Louie Ramirez and Ray Baretto, before ending on the super soulful Luther.

Hyetal is our guest this week and opens with the industrial, avant garde group Throbbing Gristle and continues with recent Chicago house from Tevo Howard and on a similar tip with Redshape and "Searchlight" by Hyetal himself. Drexciya, Severed Heads and Evian Christ all feature before ending his mix with Prince side project Vanity 6 from 1982.

DK steps in for the last section with the new single from Deco Child, Dobie and Hot Sugar assisted by Q-Tip, forthcoming music from The Cinematic Orchestra and classic cuts from Inner Life and Quincy Jones.

The presented version can be heard here.
