Solid Steel Radio 19-04-13 - DJ Irk, The Disablists & DJ Food

This week we begin with DJ Irk's brand new 'Let Battle Commence' mix, which starts out with a scratch sequence featuring the 'Solid Steel' sample from classic 80s film The Running Man. We then move on to some hard-hitting electronic hip hop from Two Fingers, Doshy and DZA, followed by some smoother bass grooves from Livingstone, Yan Zombie and Reso, before closing out with some double-time beats from Jubei and Fourward.

The Disablists take over the decks with a mix that has the 4 x UK DMC champions cutting up Kidkanevil, Gangstarr and MOP over Roots Manuva's "Witness the Fitness" before switching to the excellent Slugabed remix. Dead Prez drops in over Hudson Mohawke, plus music from Machinedrum, Jay Majik and the Philip D Kick re-edit of Adam F, before taking it back with an old school selection via Dizzee Rascal, which sets up nicely for Hour 2.

DJ Food turns back the clock in our 25th Anniversary slot and following a request for an old school Hip Hop set for the De:Tuned party in Antwerp earlier this week, Strictly Kev put this special party mix together to rock the dancefloor. Solid Steel however gets an exclusive to kick things off in the form of excerpts from his first ever recorded mix, unheard by anyone except close friends and hidden on tape for 25 years.

Back in '87 his DJ (and graffiti) name was D-Vice and the 'Soundlab mix' (named after his 2nd mixer, made by Soundlab) was made between 1987-88 on his first two belt-driven decks (only one with a pitch control) and a pause button tape deck. A Strictly Old School Special.
