Solid Steel Radio 14-06-13 - DJ Food, Melt Yourself Down & Coldcut

This week on Solid Steel there’s a definite African feel to the set list. Strictly Kev kicks things off with a mix of music he calls ‘Afreaka’. Percussion heavy funk with a tribal feel, from Madlib sample grabs to Malcolm McLaren or Eno & Byrne’s imagined ethnic soundscapes. For part two we welcome Melt Yourself Down into the guest slot for a whole world fusion of flavours from Ali Hassan Kuban to the Mad Decent stable.

The band release their debut album on June 17th via the Leaf Label after a trio of killer singles that fuse post-punk Pigbag skronk funk with acid electronics. Catch them on tour across the UK right now with a must see live show that recently ripped Jools Holland’s ‘Later’ show a new one.

Over the past 25 years on Solid Steel, if there's one continent that has been well represented since day one, it's Africa. Coldcut have always dug deep into it's rich musical heritage and Jon More displays another fine selection of Afro beat and African inspired music. It's Bala Miller from Nigeria, Alemayehu Eshete from Ethiopia and Julien Babinga from Congo, plus music from Ocote Soul Sounds, Shina Williams and Troubleman.
