Solid Steel Radio 10/02/2012 - Coldcut, Raffertie
Solid Steel in association with Serato (10th February)
Coldcut continue bringing you the Broadest Beats with another mix featured in last night's show presented live on Strongroom.fm. Tune in every Thursday between 7-9pm UK time for the presented version. We start with the incredible Jill Scott, sliding sweetly into the sounds of Joy Orbison, Photek and "Newsflash" by Diplo featuring Sandra Melody. It's classic rave from The Prodigy and a nod to that time, with the current DJ Q track "All Junglist", before sweeping through a reggae set from Marcia Aitken, Trinity, Mighty Two and Althea & Donna. We complete hour 1 with The Young Rascals, Hudson Mohawke and a track from the new Bonobo Black Sands Remixed album with Machinedrum on remix duties.
Raffertie is our guest in hour 2. His latest EP Mass Appeal is out now on Ninja Tune and we get to hear the title track and "One Track Mind" from the EP, along with a whole host of exclusive unreleased music from the man himself. Most don't even have a title yet, but they all maintain the high quality of his sonic palette. There's also tracks from G.H. and Get People, but even they don't escape his deft touch behind the mixing desk.
Coldcut step back in the room to close the show with music from Nina Simone, Polar and the classic 'Twilight' from Maze.
