Solid Steel Radio 30-08-13 - Coldcut, DK, 2econd Class Citizen

Coldcut presents 2 Hours of Sanity Pt. 1 Love - Part 1 in a new Coldcut series of mixes for Solid Steel Radio! The mind map lists the bases we want to cover, and some part of the links between our lifelong music experience and the electronic scene of today.

It's partly about playing with the interface between DJ mixes of other peoples tunes, and producer/studio mixes creating original tunes. Using micro slicing and multi threading of material, with an ear for the magic moment of harmonic mix beauty and eye for mix aptness.

The project is also about celebrating the history of musical experimentation, featuring innovators ancient to the future. Using spoken word from Sun Ra's Arkestra as a leitmotif, it's a tribute from Coldcut to some of the artists we feel have both moved us and changed the game. You can catch Matt Black from Coldcut celebrating 25 years of Solid Steel alongside DJ Cheeba at We Love in Ibiza on 1st September.

DK opens the second hour with new music from Riva Starr featuring Horace Andy, Letherette remixed by Bibio and Hanami on Project Mooncircle. It's back to '85 for Harleqiun Four's version of "Set it off", another track from our recent guest Paul White, plus music from Dean Blunt, Dobie and Silver Apples.

With the turn of London Mela this weekend, Europe's largest south Asian festival, 2econd Class Citizen steps up for his 'Bollywood Steel' mix. Made up entirely of rare Bollywood soundtrack records found over the years at flea markets and charity shops, from R.D Burman's synth lead classic "The Burning Train" to the downtempo fuzz of "Music" from the film Aandhi, this is a selection of some of his favorites picked from his collection. Enjoy!
