Solid Steel Radio 29-08-14 - Fort Romeau, Josey Rebelle

We welcome Fort Romeau to Solid Steel in Hr 1 with a fine mix and this is what he said;

This mix was done with no planning using with just whats in my record bag at the moment. There are tracks here that I’ve been playing out a lot as well as some older, possibly lesser know bits and a couple of classics. Its important for me to have a good mix of old and new when I’m DJing and I like finding connections between tracks regardless of whether they came out in 1983, 1997 or last week. Context is everything when it comes to how we perceive music and I think re framing older tracks in the right way can create a feeling that somehow the music is existing in some uniform yet indefinable time period. Listening back theres definitely a strong Vocoder House / Electronic Disco strain running through the mix, but everyone loves a singing robot don’t they?

Josey Rebelle steps in for Hour 2 with a lush mix kicking off with a new track from Dego on FaltyDL's Blueberry Records. This is followed by PhOtOmachine, Cos-Ber-Zam remixed by Daphni, Fhloston Paradigm on Hyperdub and Funkineven feat. Jay Daniel, plus classics from Pal Joey, Phuture and Todd Terry to wrap up the show!
