Solid Steel Radio Show - Jabru



Its Friday afternoon, your not doing any work now so you might as well listen to this as ITS RAD!!!! Proper job indeed.

In hour 2 it’s Jabru from the west country and one half of Bruh Jackman (along with Hackman). Musically it’s across the spectrum with hip hop from Lootpack, Saul Williams and Ghostface Killah, before moving up into house territory with Hackman, the Paul Woolford rework for T Williams and classic UK Garage from Wookie. We take it down again with Digital Mystikz and Roberta Flack, then Turbulence into DJ Food, Outkast and ending with the beautiful Get Thy Bearings by Donovan. All this plus his own tracks Glass Floor from the first Sound Of The Cosmos EP (the VIP featured in the mix can be downloaded from XLR8R), Whiteboard Jungle which is going to be on JD Twitch (Optimo)’s Bucky Skank label later in the year and look out for the Calling Card EP coming soon on his own Paradise Club Records.

Eclectic Method - A Brief History of Sampling


A video remix journey through the history of sampling taking in some of the most noted breaks and riffs of the decades. A chronological journey from the Beatles’ use of the Mellotron in the 60s to the sample dense hiphop and dance music of the 80s and 90s. Each break is represented by a vibrating vinyl soundwave exploding into various tracks that sampled it, each re-use another chapter in the modern narrative.

Slugrave - We Are 3 | LDN 24/01/14



Three is the magic number. Three sluggish DJs making their way from three parts of the country to celebrate three years of the mighty Slugrave. In that three years, they’ve taken their lax BPMs to all manner of clubs and festivals Glastonbury Festival‘s The Beat Hotel, Glade, Beautiful Days FestivalDimensions Festival, the late lamented Big Chill), and – slowly – rocked it each and every time.

Don’t be fooled, this isn’t chillout: just because they refuse to push past the 120bpm mark doesn’t mean the Slugrave team don’t bring the party.

Their sound, which absorbs acid house, space disco, dub, hip hop, moombah, Balearic and a whole lot more into its dreamy throb is perfect for people who know that real pleasure can’t be rushed. It’s slow, it’s low – so let yourself go!


Sorry, No Vacancies
