Solid Steel Radio 02/11/2012 - Parker, DJ Cheeba & Strictly Kev

Solid Steel in association with Serato (23rd November) Parker opens the show this week with a mighty fine mix taking in all his current favs that you'll hear him spinning out and about. Photek & KuruDobie and Hint start proceedings and we continue with heavy bass action from Randomer, Bassnectar and Shaka Sonics. Then it's drum and bass from S.P.Y., accapellas from Notorius B.I.G. and Brandy and a healthy dose of Parker's own productions to wrap it all up.

DJ Cheeba returns with another documentary style mix charting the huge influence and mass appeal of arguably the greatest rock band of all time: Led Zeppelin. This mix has been made to coincide with the release of 'Celebration Day' and digs chronologically through the band's first six albums (1969-1975), picking out key tracks, their influences, subsequent covers and some of the notable examples of where they were sampled in hip hop, dance music and pop.

In Hour 2 Strictly Kev returns from a whistle-stop trip to Tel Aviv laden with loads of indigenous music both new and old. The Israeli Audio Montage, Delights and Fortuna labels all feature as do many tracks from the excellent Mordy Laye & The Group Modular LP, setting the tone for this Radiophonic mood/moog-fest with added psyche and surf trimmings. Blending in amongst all these you'll find The Stepkids, Beta Hector remixed by The Simonsound and the jazz stylings of Jan Hammer, John Murtaugh and Dick Hyman!
