Solid Steel

Solid Steel is the legendary 2 hour radio mix show that’s been running for over 20 years and designed to bring the listener ‘the broadest beats’

Matt Black and Jonathan More (aka Coldcut and Ninja Tune founders and head honchos) started out on London’s pirate radio station Kiss FM with shows of their own but then joined up in 1988 and Solid Steel was born

a few years later the station went legal and since then Solid Steel has grown and grown ~ the show is produced by DK and has an ever growing body of new members (J Mountain, Ruckus Roboticus, Cheeba, Boom Monk Ben and DJ Moneyshot) who in turn provide mixes for each show as do a diverse selection of guests ~ it is now broadcast on over 30 radio stations around the world and has produced a series of mix albums and club nights

the podcasts are also hugely successful and have in turn spawned videocasts

below is a videocast by Hexstatic called Solid Reel (51:02) and another by DJ Food & DK called Now, Look & Listen (78:49) which follows on from their mix albums Now, Listen! and Now, Listen Again! (to see full screen versions click on the word ‘vimeo’ on the videocast)
