Solid Steel (9th August) DK opens the show with the brand new Roots Manuva single 'Stolen Youth', followed by Massive Attack remixed by this weeks guest in his Underdog guise and the Algerian Rai sound of Fadela. After this gentle start, the sample is flipped into the proto-jungle classic 'We are i.e.' from Lennie De Ice and Four Tet takes that essence and puts his own twist on it with his new track 'Kool FM'. It's more new music from Jono McCleery and Cell Broco, classic house from Curtis McClaine and Scuba with an electro flavoured track leading into Mantronix and a few words from Edit king Albert Cabrera setting up for our guest.
We welcome Trevor Jackson in the 25th Anniversary slot this week and as ever, we asked for something different. In his own words;
"This mix consists of electro/freestyle/miami bass classics & bonus beat edits by the likes of chep nunez, omar santana & the latin rascals, how they did what they did with just tape, a reel 2 reel & a razor blade still defies belief and continues to inspire me as much as it did when i first heard their work in the mid 80's
There is no tracklisting & won't be because i come from a generation when shazam. discogs, ebay & google didn't exist, when i first heard something on the radio in a club or a mixtape it often took me many months of desperate searching to find out what it was, i'm more than happy to inflict this highly satisfying laborious experience upon you, you'll appreciate it in the long run."
