Solid Steel Radio 02-05-13 - DJ Food & DJ BobaFatt
DJ BobaFatt opens the show this week with part of his mix for the Soundwave Festival in Croatia. Each track in the mix features an artist playing at the festival and it's sure to get you in the mood for summer. There's a whole host of great artists in the line up and we hear music from Om Unit, DJ Shadow, MF Doom and Robert Glasper, plus the Ninja family are represented by Letherette and Lapalux. There is a limited 5 for the price of 4 offer on tickets for the festival at the NinjaShop.
DJ Food looks back once again for our 25th Anniversary slot taking Free Comic Book Day (this Saturday, May 4th) as his theme to present tracks that feature references to comic book characters. The Marvel and DC worlds of Superman, Batman and Spiderman feature heavily with everyone from Snoop Dogg to Cliff Richard revealing their passion for Caped Crusaders and Wall Crawlers. But the more obscure feature too with three nods to Judge Dredd, two for Flash Gordon and even Elton John singing the praises of Dan Dare. DJ Food will have a piece of artwork in a new exhibition called Image Duplicator - looking at the original comic artists that Lichtenstein copied for his most famous work - opening on May 16th at Orbital Comics in London.
