Solid Steel (12th December) Douster is our guest in Hour 1 celebrating the release of his new EP Universal Serial Blood which is out on Parisian label [Re]sources next week. He has been making beats since the age of 14 and has had releases on Sound Pellegrino and Mad Decent, plus a track with last weeks guest Diplo. He told us;
"The mix has an overall good vibe with lot's of different styles of music from Europe, Chile, South Africa..... it starts with what i like to call "tiny" computer funk, a mix of field recordings, simple synths and old drum machines rhythms, it then goes into sharper territory with harder drum tracks, afro drums and melancholic grime melodies . It's not necessarily what i would play in clubs but it shows the kind of music i'm making / listening to at the moment."

In Hour 2 we have a mix courtesy of the excellent Bonafide magazine, who celebrated their 5th Anniversary this year. They also host a great series of mixes on their website, but now it's their turn to hit the decks on Solid Steel. They had this to say;
"The simple aim of this mix is to showcase the varied sounds of the artists weâ??ve worked with at Bonafide during the last 5 years. The mix, just like Bonafide itself, is a healthy combination of hip-hop, funk n soul, afrobeat and Detroit / Chicago influenced house and disco. Happy listening and Merry Christmas from everyone at Bonafide [www.bonafidemag.com]"
