Solid Steel Radio Show 1/2/2013 Part 1 + 2 – DK + Manasseh

Solid Steel (1st February) DK opens proceedings with a track from the new 0181album from Four Tet featuring his productions from 1997 and 2001(of which one track was made on the 2001 Solid Steel US tour!) and we follow with classic Fela Kuti from a new compilation by Knitting Factory. Then it’s a brand new track from Bonobo, Daphni from last year and forthcoming music from The Heliocentrics.
As part of our 25th Anniversary we welcome Nick Manasseh part of the Manasseh Sound System who had a regular slot late Saturday night on Kiss FM directly after Solid Steel in the 90’s. They specialised in Roots Reggae and also had a regular slot at Notting Hill carnival from 1985, but as with everyone we asked for something different and we get a fine selection of music from across the board ranging from classical music from Eric Satie to Jimi Hendrix, an unknown 30’s Chinese tracks to favs from Stevie Wonder and Quincy Jones. We also get a taste of familiar territory with Lone Pilgrem vs Manasseh and the track ‘Barefoot Skank’.
