Solid Steel Radio 26-04-13 - Mixmaster Morris, Coldcut & Blackjob

Solid Steel Radio 26-04-13 - Mixmaster Morris, Coldcut & Blackjob

After last week's frantic session, it's a more laid back affair all round as we welcome Mixmaster Morris in Hour 1 for our 25th Anniversary slot. His history with Solid Steel goes back to the early days when he would often sit in for Coldcut on Kiss FM, alongside his own show The Chill Out Zone. He is also responsible for producing arguably one of the best remixes for Coldcut, with the classic Irresistible Force Full Chill Mix of "Autumn Leaves" and productions on Rising High and Ninja Tune. We open with Robert Glasper, the wonderful Letherette remix for Bibio and tracks from Romare, Cid Rim and Oriol. Plus there's music from Lapalux, Fatima, Floating Points Ensemble and closing on the Idjut Boys remix for Smith and Mudd.

Coldcut start Hour 2 with Jazz from the Claus Waidtlow Quartet, before heading to Ethiopia with Gigi and back to London with The Peddlers alongside The London Philharmonic Orchestra. Then it's a reggae selection from Henry and Louis remixed by Pinch, Linval Thompson and "Raggamuffin" by Tappa Zukie.

We end the show with Blackjob, the latest project from Italian bassist Mannaman who has his Trashdub EP out on Original Cultures which features remixes from Sam Binga, Danny Scrilla and T-Woc. His mix takes in soul from Sam Cooke, blues from Lightning Hopkins, country from Johnny Cash, with him often playing along and redoing elements of the tracks and this is laced throughout with his own future dub productions.
