Solid Steel Radio Show 6/11/2015 – Jungle

File this mix under “I thought I’d already posted it”. Get ready for a supremely catchy hour of pop-infused soul, hip-hop flavoured beats, wonky neck-snappers and impeccable grooves. This is one of my favourite mixes of the last few years, with a middle section that I absolutely adore. I’m desperately trying to get hold of a copy of JFC – LA Baby (which is apparently Jungle Football Club, a Jungle side project), and just discovered that one of my oldest mates is the personal trainer of one of the guys from the band… It might happen!

I really do love this mix – it’s so well balanced, so well programmed, it flows exactly as it should, patient, logical and satisfying, allowing for peaks and troughs, it is a great example of the art for any aspiring DJs out there. I’m literally dancing in my chair to it now 😂

Mixtape Monday, Vol 17

Solid Steel Radio – Lone

Lone has emerged as one of the most consistenly brilliant, exciting and prolific producers in recent years. The creation of Matt Cutler, he first came into my sphere of knowledge as one half of Kids In Tracksuits, who played regularly around my old stamping ground of Nottingham.

This mix brilliantly straddles home listening and something for the club, I’ve already given it 3 listens and I suspect it will get many more in the years to come! Enjoy.
