Solid Steel Radio - 22-08-14 - Horse Meat Disco, Paper Tiger

It's Bank Holiday Weekend and no better time to have Horse Meat Disco as our guests in Hour 1 - a full on underground Disco excursion from the guys who certainly know how to hold down a party. The London DJ collective have regular club dates across the world, along with residences in London and Berlin and have recently released their fourth compilation on Strut Records. They collectively told us, "a synthed out selection of more leftfield and cosmic vibes, from the electronic wedge of the disco spectrum, that lurk in the darker crevices of our collections".....and we love it!

Paper Tiger return to Solid Steel in Hr 2 and told us this; 

"It's a great honour to be asked back to do another Solid Steel mix - this one's mainly based around our forthcoming release Sultan Ant Pop, a remix record to accompany our debut album Laptop Suntan. We've been lucky enough to get some amazing interpretations from producers whose music we greatly admire like Werkha, LV, SertOne, Bambooman (aka Grouphums), all of which are included here. There are also some extra bits and bobs from us on the mix, including some stuff from the original album, a song from our first vinyl release and a brand new unreleased track. Other than that, we've chosen some tracks by artists that have influenced our sound as well as some more recent stuff that we're enjoying. There are squiggly hip-hop beats, a lesser-known Stones Throw gem from Madlib (aka DJ Rels), US rap, a bit of grime, a few dancefloor bangers and of course a healthy dose of P-Funk. It should give people unfamiliar with our work an insight into our taste - it's diverse, but coherent... a bit like our band hopefully! Enjoy."
