Solid Steel Radio 17-05-13 - DK & Gilles Peterson

It's two bumper mixes this week as we gear up for the Bonobo all day festival at the Roundhouse on Saturday 18th May. Our guest in Hour 2, Gilles Peterson will be DJing at the event and Solid Steel will be broadcasting live all day with Coldcut, DJ Food and DK on Roundhouse Radio from 2pm (UK Time).

DK opens this week with a track off the awesome Thundercat album and into Ten Tigers from Bonobo, the return of Slum Village and back to '95 for T Power & MK Ultra.

Then it's another spin for the Machinedrum mix of Clissold, Letherette (who are also playing at the Roundhouse), Joy Orbison and Owiny Sigoma Band. African and Latin rhythms take over with Irakere, Roberto Roena, Four Tet remixing Rocket Number Nine and Azymuth ahead of their UK tour next month.

The beats turn heavy with Spatial, Dorian Concept, Walter Ego and two from Die & Addison Groove, before BRTSH KNIGHTS and Ronnie McNeir add a soulful slant. And with the Fela Kuti tribute show also happening this weekend in London, we feature a 1975 cover version from Johnny Rodrigues and a track from the legend himself, off the suitably titled 'Fela's London Scene' album recorded at Abbey Road.

For the second hour we welcome Gilles Peterson in the slot for the 25th Anniversary of Solid Steel, a DJ who (along with Coldcut) also presented a show in the 90's on Kiss FM. For this mix he's layed down a 'Brit Funk 1977 - 1982' mix, returning to a period of music that was an important part of his life growing up. Music from independent labels, some run by record shops, like the first track by Cache on Groove Records.

This is followed by the classic 'Trip to your mind' by Hudson People, a record that a 15 year old Gilles Peterson caught from them in the crowd at a Purley all-dayer. Then it's more music from the likes of Freez, Atmosfear, Hi Tension, TW Funkmasters and Sun Palace, but to hear more about this mix from the man himself, check out this video he made for us.

Gilles Peterson will be DJing at the Bonobo Roundhouse festival this Saturday 18 May from 8.45pm - 9.45pm - for a full lineup and more details on Solid Steel's Roundhouse Radio takeover, head here.
