Solid Steel Radio 15-11-13: DK, Pal Joey, Ashley Beedle
Then it's a switch into a superb new Stubborn Heart remix for Scrimshire, the lush deep house of North Lakes and into Carl Craig's classic rework of Cesaria Evora, before ending with a track from our first guest Pal Joey.
The New York deep house pioneer has a 23 track anthology out now on BBE and fitting for our 25th Anniversary, we have an exclusive Pal Joey mix from 1987. We don't have a track list, but you'll hear music from Ralphi Rosario, Robert Owens and Class Action amongst others from that period.
Our second guest in Hour 2 is Ashley Beedle, a legendary figure on the British club scene for more than 20 years and involved with numerous projects including The Ballistic Brothers, Black Science Orchestra, X-Press 2 and now under his own name on Girls Music.
A man who is at home playing and producing deep funk, soul and reggae as he is with cutting edge house and techno and everything in-between. For our 25th Anniversary he delivers a vinyl selection of the highest quality with music from Gil Scott Heron, Curtis Mayfield, Van McCoy, Lighthouse and Jess Roden. Ashley Beedle Yardism 2 is out on Girls Music 2nd December
DK book ends the show with more music from the excellent Peruvian Latin compilation Peru Maravilloso and Angola Soundtrack 2 on Analog Africa, plus The Electric Peanut Butter Company and ending on beautiful music from James Heather.
