Solid Steel (27th March) DJ Food returns with a second instalment of his Future Shock series - mixes with a bias towards the purely electronic and largely instrumental end of the spectrum. Ninja Tune acts Machinedrum, Falty DL and Martyn rub transistors with Sinoia Caves, Pye Corner Audio and Silent Servant. Old hands The Human League, Carpenter & Howarth and Psychic TV are present, even Queen get a look in. Sandwiched in the middle is a lengthy excerpt of Tangerine Dream's 'Tru Metamorphic Rocks' in dedication to founder Edgar Froese who passed away recently.

Not that much is known about Let The Machines Do The Work in Hour 2 apart from an extensive collection of analog gear and they know how to use it. This Solid Steel mix showcases their unique nature as they plug in, power up, mix and make music live on the fly, exclusively for this mix for the first half. Creating deep dark sounds keeping the listener not knowing where they will go. The second half shows off their production skills with cuts like 'Rise of The Machines' and a much slept on My Panda Shall Fly remix. With featured vocals from Kurt Cobain and Jesse Boykins III we are onto a winner.  — Read less
