Solid Steel Radio 23-05-14 - Leon Vynehall, Francis Inferno Orchestra
In Hour 1 we're delighted to welcome Leon Vynehall to the show. Following his recent release on Martyn's 3024 label, he delivers an exclusive mixtape of his own unreleased edits just for Solid Steel. He told us;
"I had a bit of time off after I finished Music For The Uninvited, so I pulled out a bunch of records and made some early 90s hip-hop and decided to make a mixtape. I've been fortunate enough to have some friends sing and mc on it too."
Those friends include Ava Rae, Speelburg, Kasflow and Rosalind for a sublime selection of beats, including his "vynedit" of the classic "Broad Factor" by Quasimoto.
Francis Inferno Orchestra step up in Hour 2. The young Australian producer has already racked up a string of quality releases and drops a beautiful mix for Solid Steel. Opening on a New Age tip, we progress through music from Panoram, German Library music from Peter Ludemann & Pit Troja, a classic DJ Harvey edit, Mr Lee from 1990 and a soulful cut from Mass Production. All this plus a track from the new Francis Inferno Orchestra LP A New Way of Living which is out this week on Voyeurhythm Records.
