Solid Steel Radio - 15-08-14 - Dark Sky, DJ Food

Dark Sky return to open the show this week ahead of the release of their new album Imagin coming out on Monkeytown Records. In their own words "This mix was recorded using two Technics sl1210s, a Urei 1601 mixer, two CDJs and an RE20 effect pedal. The aim was to showcase music we’re currently listening to, were listening to during the process of working on our debut album and to give a little flavour of what to expect from our shows on NTS radio."

Future Shock was a 2hr mix that DJ Food cooked up for an online 'pirate' radio station a couple of friends set up earlier this year called Altar Ego Radio. Billed as 'Music from the Future you remember from your Past', he mixed sci-fi electronica with a retro feel from Jokers of the Scene, FaltyDL. The Books, Sculpture, Nico Motte and Jeremy Schmidt. Here's the first hour, exclusively sans the chat of the original broadcast which was hosted like a regular radio show.

Much like his recent Magpie Music mix of a few weeks ago he intends to expand on these themes in forthcoming Future Shock mixes focussing on the more electronic side of his current tastes. Altar Ego Radio will also be back on the air over the Auguse Bank holiday weekend, more info here. You can catch DJ Food in Brixton, London on 12 September at the Solid Steel Terrace Party alongside DK, DJ Cheeba, DJ Moneyshot and special guest Dauwd. More details here.
