To celebrate two decades and half of broadcasting, the Solid Steel Radio Show have hooked up exclusive mixes from musicians and DJs from around the globe. If you dig far-out and unexpected sounds, then you know your man J. Rocc has got you, so listening to his recent set for Solid Steel is a must for all eclectic music fans.
States Solid Steel: We welcome back J Rocc for our 25th Anniversary slot in hour 2, having featured on Solid Steel back in 2005 and also played at the Solid Steel night at Cargo for the 'Keep in Time' release. He's a man that's also known for his Broadest Beats and for this mix he opens with Krautrock legends Faust and moves through similar 70's jazz/prog/rock territory with The Abstract Truth from South Africa, Lokomotive Kreuzberg from Germany and Psychedelic Rock from South Korea with He 6! Then it's a sharp turn into an 80's New Wave and a leftfield disco selection featuring music from Doris Norton (an 80's Italian Delia Derbyshire), Das Ding, Dominatrix, Klein & MBO and Visage, all mixed to perfection as you'd expect from the founder member of the Beat Junkies.
So g'head and dive in... Whatcha waitin' for?
