Solid Steel Radio 31/01/14 - Eliphino, Jabru

Eliphino is our guest in Hour 1, providing one hour of the kind of thing he might listen to at home, and later on in the mix a slice of what you might expect to hear if you caught him behind the decks, opening with the soulful "Coultrain" and into a trio of Dilla beats - timely with the numerous tribute nights at the moment. Then it's Thomas Mapfumo from Zimbabwe with the Daphni sampled "Shumba" from 1981, before opening out into a sublime and deep selection from HNNY, Roska, Basic Soul Unit and Eliphino himself. You can probably catch him popping up at a club near you soon, or if you're Croatia-bound this summer he'll be playing Soundwave, Outlook & Dimensions

In hour 2 it's Jabru from the west country and one half of Bruh Jackman (along with Hackman).  Musically it's across the spectrum, with hip hop from Lootpack, Saul Williams and Ghostface Killah, before moving up into house territory with Hackman, the Paul Woolford rework for T Williams and classic UK Garage from Wookie. We take it down again with Digital Mystikz and Roberta Flack, then Turbulence into DJ Food, Outkast and ending with the beautiful "Get Thy Bearings" by Donovan. All this plus his own tracks "Glass Floor" from the first Sound Of The Cosmos EP (the VIP featured in the mix can be downloaded from XLR8R), "Whiteboard Jungle" which is going to be on JD Twitch (Optimo)'s Bucky Skank label later in the year, and look out for the Calling Card EP coming soon on his own Paradise Club Records.
