Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel radio show is a legendary corner stone in electronic music culture. First aired in 1988 on London’s Kiss FM, and now syndicated all over the world, Solid Steel is still (ha!) pushing boundaries, and showcasing the latest sounds and trends.
Botanika releases were featured intensively on the show, with tracks by Cohen, Kalbata, Polar Pair, NDV, Markey Funk & Bunny on Acid. On this week’s show we took it up a notch, with a 30 minutes mix by Polar Pair, including some original tracks and other favourites.
Also, following Ninja Tune’s DJ Food visit in Tel Aviv last month, he featured many tracks by Markey Funk’s latest project – Mordy Laye and Group Modular. The word is that Markey is also preparing a special set for Solid Steel. Good times!
