Solid Steel (17th October) This week we're delighted to welcome Ben Page from RocketNumberNine to Solid Steel. Following the recent 'Blank Project' album with Neneh Cherry, alongside his brother Tom and produced by Four Tet, we get an exclusive mix of new solo material. In fact so new, the tracks don't even have titles yet! 
He had this to say about his mix;
"For the honour of doing a mix for the legendary Solid Steel I wanted to showcase brand new, unheard solo tracks and to lay them down in a loose, improvised style in keeping with the spirit of RocketNumberNine. As a 14 year old growing up in Chingford, I would listen, courtesy of a friend's older brother, to the sounds of Detroit and Chicago and I think those sounds can be heard in these tracks...along with a good dose of Chingford Tribalism...!!
The setup is the same as for RocketNumberNine, with the addition of  an MPC for sequencing the Nord Wave and V Synth."

Hour 2 kicks off with Luca Santucci from Stubborn Heart with a Northern Soul special. Almost exactly 15 years after his last mix for Solid Steel, he returns for another go on the wheels. Perhaps better known for his collabos with Leila Arab, Plaid, Playgroup and Matthew Herbert, Luca can nowadays be heard plying his trade as one half of Stubborn Heart. He's done this mix for us to promote the film his brother Marco Santucci has produced, 'Northern Soul', directed by Elaine Constantine. The mix consists of fave tunes out of his brother's 7" box as well as tunes off the soundtrack to the film, which hits cinemas up and down the country on October the 17th.
We finish the show with a mix by Dunk Ballantyne from Tiger's Milk Records to coincide with the release of Peru Bravo, rare Funk, Soul and Psych from Peru's Radical Decade. Music featured includes Laghonia, Traffic Sound and Thee Image from the album, plus more from David Toop, Wolfgang Dauner Quintet and E Rodney jones & Friends. — Read less
