Solid Steel Radio 17-01-14 - Kid Koala, DJ Food, Markey Funk

This week it's the turn of Kid Koala to showcase his turntable skills. At the other end of the spectrum to DJ Kentaro last week, Kid Koala has a unique style and we get to hear it with this set recorded 'Live in Victoria on Three Rental Turntables'.

You'll recognise some of his classic routines alongside tracks from his albums on Ninja Tune. He has been recently touring the world with Deltron 3030 and ever since his incredible set at the legendary Stealth night in the 90's, every show is well worth watching.

DJ Food steps up for Hour 2 and bookends his mix with distorto-breaks and fuzzed electronics sandwiching James Murphy's 10 minute David Bowie remix in the middle. Food favourites Chop, The Simonsound and The Amorphous Androgynous all feature as well as some anecdotal nuggets from Eno, you'll never hear "Heroes" the same way again.

It's 3 years since the passing of Broadcast front woman Trish Keenan and we celebrate her music and vocals with this mix from Markey Funk. The mix is part of a live rescore of cult 1966 TV movie "Alice in Wonderland" by Jonathan Miller, based on music by Broadcast.

It was performed and recorded by Markey Funk live on January 25th, 2012 at the Trish Keenan tribute event. You can watch the full rescored movie 'Alice in Broadcastland' on Vimeo or in the Internet Archive and there's more musical goodness by Markey Funk on his website here.
