About the show
Playing tracks by
Lone, Mr Oizo, Letherette, Daedelus, Solar Bears and more.
Having just released their stunning debut album 'She Was Coloured In' on the diverse Planet Mu label, and leaving a slew of rave reviews in their wake, Solar Bears have hit the ground running and plan to keep crafting even more exciting output as we move into 2011. Consider this mix an offload of new and old loves and influences - with Nathan Fake, Daedelus and Four Tet sitting shoulder to shoulder with Machinedrum, Letherette and Young Montana. Adding a couple of their own tracks at either end of the mix, and the heavy bass-hitters represented by FlyLo and HudMo, there's plenty to get excited about and a few names to bookmark for the near future.
Summed up, Solar Bears are an imaginative and crucial force in modern music, whose forward-thinking approach has ushered in a refreshing era of band-based electronica.
