Solid Steel Radio 28-06-13 - Congo Natty, DJ Food AV mix

It's a massive welcome this week to Congo Natty, a well respected and legendary figure in British music who had his first release as Rebel MC in 1988, the same year Solid Steel started. Chart success followed alongside Double Trouble, but he's probably most respected as one of the pioneers of Jungle. His music has always been a firm fixture on Solid Steel, evident in the 1991 Kiss recording we had back in January. Will Ashon from Big Dada talks to him about his extensive career, his new album Jungle Revolution and we get to hear a few classic records that have influenced him over the years. That is followed by a Congo Natty Live '95 recording that features Ragga Twins, Navigator, MC Dett and DJ SL

For the second hour this week DJ Food presents a version of his set from the Boards of Canada-inspired night he played recently, A Few Old Tunes. The playlist for the night took its cues from the Scottish duo's music and expanded both ways, to the music and TV that had inspired them to those who had been inspired in return. From the past we find Sesame Street, Galt MacDermont, Delia Derbyshire and John Abercrombie, from the present: The Books, Mordy Laye, Lost Idol and Two Quiet Suns.

In addition to the audio mix, Kev presents his first solo AV mix - O Is For Orange. Visually inspired by the weathered found footage cine film and public information films of yesteryear and featuring numerous unofficial Boards of Canada fan films that have sprung up on YouTube over the years.
