Solid Steel (18th January) This week we feature a mix from Ben UFO celebrating the release of his Fabric Live CD. We kick off with Helm and a new track from Pev & Kowton on the Hessle Audio label that he runs alongside Pearson Sound and Pangaea. Then it's onto the Mark Fell remix for Fennesz, Pairs from the excellent Daphni and a classic Nu Groove cut from N.Y. House'n Authority and a recent Planet E track from Carls Davis.
DK steps up to highlight forthcoming releases from the Ninja Tune family of labels. Big Dada is represented with tracks from new signing Vision, the grandaddy of UK hip hop Roots Manuva and the legendary Dobie. Falty DL features 4 times with tracks off his Hardcourage album on Ninja Tune, his remix of Dobie and remixed by Martyn. The Bug returns with the awesome Warrior Queen on Acid Ragga and Clark does a fine remix for Letherette, plus tracks from Lapalux on Brainfeeder and Moire on Werkdiscs.
