Solid Steel Radio 06-12-13 - DK & Mr. Scruff

It's a specially extended session this week as we prepare for the Solid Steel 25th Anniversary night in London tonight with two of the DJs that are playing.

DK steps up with the first part of his own retrospective on his time at Solid Steel. Having started on the show in 1997 and over 400 mixes later, here is just a few personal favourites starting in '97 with Data and the Underdog remix, aka Trevor Jackson who is another artist playing tonight.

Then it's early '90s hip hop from Jeru, OC, Pharcyde and Crooklyn Dodgers, before Steve Reich and a nod to The Orb, (also playing tonight) followed by two epic vocal outings from Andreya Triana and Lamb. It's a few Jazz, Latin and African selections including the Fela cover by Johnny Rodrigues, which got DK his first offer to do a mix by Coldcut.

After that we get through more gems from Caribou, Zomby, Bobby Konders, Fink, Radiohead and three appearances from Four Tet, our special guest tonight, before closing on the obscure Dr Philter Banx from 1975. The second half of this mix will be next week...

Our next guest is Mr Scruff, who released his Solid Steel mix CD in 2004 and has clocked up more hours DJing with his extended sets than anyone else. He'll be playing a 4 hour vinyl set with Illum Sphere tonight and here we're treated to another sublime selection to get us in the mood. Opening with Jean Grae, Mos Def and Black Milk, then into the lush vocals of Sweet Charles and Rufas & Chaka Khan.

Then we touch down in Brazil with Arthur Verocai and Africa with Os Kiezos Orchestre Super Poly Rythmo De Cotonou and Manu Dibango, plus loads more from Roy Ayers, Hudson People, Sam Most and an excellent version of "Voodoo Ray" by the Melodians Steel Orchestra

All roads lead to Fire in London for the celebrations starting at 10pm tonight. A specially recorded show is available on CD, Cassette and MiniDisc to the first 100 to arrive! Info and last few tickets
