Solid Steel Radio 05-07-13 - Ross Allen & Coldcut

It's Ross Allen in the 25th Anniversary slot this week taking over most of the show and it's very much a personal selection. Having listened to Solid Steel since its pirate roots, the well respected DJ picks out tracks played by Coldcut over the years that have 'shaped his musical mind'.

Here is a full run down in his own words, that continue on the Soundcloud page; "Is it really 25 years of Solid Steel ? Jeez, I know I getting old ! I remember ‘bunking off’ from my first proper job, at the Midland Bank in the City, on a Friday afternoon, not having had a lunch so I could get home to check and tape the impeccable selections (and mixes) of Matt Black and Jonathan More.

Whilst at school I had listened to their separate shows on Fridays/Saturdays on, the then totally essential (for any aspiring London trendy), Kiss 94FM.

I loved their presentation -downbeat, articulate and heavy on the sarcasm, and their selections. Their take on the nascent London Soul Underground, was as fresh and open minded as the original Hip Hop blueprint. And they dug… Deeper and broader than the rest. You could hear anything that was good on there. New, old and more often than not essential !" ........ continues here.

Ross Allen continues into the second hour with more classic hip hop, funk and soulful selections (check out Hour 1 for a full rundown of his mix) before handing over to Jon More from Coldcut with a chilled selection to close, with music from Pete Namlock, Trilok Gurtu, Harold Budd and the Tek 9 remix for Pierre Henry.
