Solid Steel Radio 10-01-14 - DJ Kentaro, Chop

This week it's our extended Solid Steel family member DJ Kentaro. Having released his Solid Steel mix CD in 2005 and two albums on Ninja Tune, he's one of the world's best turntablists who will rock the dancefloor alongside showcasing his turntable skills.

He explodes into the New Year with a mix to wipe away any hangover cobwebs that may still be lurking. After kicking off with his own track "Torus", it's onto the Flume remix for Hermitude and into a couple of Latin flavoured trap beats from Tropkillaz.

He continues in a similar vein with music from Troyboi, TNGHT, UZ, Blanchez and Jackal, before easing slightly with Lindsay Lowend & Jonah Baseball, Lung, Culprate and Lone.

In Hour 2 we welcome Chop and a mix of superb synth based musical gems. His last album Illuminate came out on Now Again and is available here.

This is what Chop said about his mix: "I've been listening to quite a lot of French, Japanese and electronic library music of late. This mix for me has been about discovering and re-discovering some fantastic artists/music from around the globe.  Wether its the eccentric French sounds of Marc Moulin's - Telex, mutations from YMO genius Haruomi Hosono or the influential proto-electronica of Manuel Gottsching, I think there's something here for everyone from diggers to digesters of great music."
