Solid Steel Radio 31-05-13 - DJ Irk & Hexstatic

This week we present irk's new High On Beats mix, an eclectic selection of high energy beats and synth sounds. We kick off with heavy beats from Posij, Two Fingers and Ital Tek, then transition in to a drum and bass section including RAM, Neosignal and a rowdy new Black Sun Empire / Foreign Beggars collaboration.

Switching up the style, the second half of the mix sits in a 110bpm groove, with rolling sounds from Proxy, Photek and this year's Nickodemus refix, then finally closes out with Bonobo's hypnotic "Don't Wait".

In Hour 2 Robin Hexstatic is celebrating 25 Years Of Solid Steel and a mix inspired by Clink Street in London.

Head over to SoundCloud for a full run down on how this part of London had such a big effect on him since 1988. Plus a comment for each record from this defining era of club culture with music from Nitro Deluxe, A Guy called Gerald, Inner City, Bam Bam, Adonis, The Nightwriters and many more.......
