Dedicated New Music Blog
Solid Steel in association with Serato (14th December) DK presents his ‘Best of 2012’ mix with a selection of just some of his favourite releases and reissues from this year.
We kick off with heavy hitters from Darq E Freaker, Noisses, DJ Kentaro and Wiley, before taking a breather with Leatherette and Kendrick Lamar. Then it’s a Machinedrum produced track off the Azelia Banks mixtape, Gospel from The Brooklyn Allstars and the huge Higher Ground from TNGHT.
We hit double time with Debruit remixed by LV, Fracture and Dub Phizix, head east with The Gaslamp Killer and it’s a return to form for Nas. Uptempo club action takes us down the home straight with Julio Bashmore, Sleeping Giantz, Ashley Beedle and Randomer, before closing with the sublime Four Tet remix for Falty DL and a Cid Rim fav from 2011 finally getting a release in 2012.
In hour 2 we welcome back Redrum ahead of the AM Project tonight (14th Dec) at Fuse Club in Brussels, playing alongside DJ Food & DK and former guest Robot Koch who opens the mix with Cerebral Vortex. We follow with another recent guest, Debruit, Krampfhaft and Squarepusher, and onto Juke from Slick Shoota and twisted beats with Opiuo. Dialect features with Lenkemz, Riko Dan with Terror Danjah on Hyperdub and we wrap up proceedings with Otto Von Schirach and another appearance from Randomer, this time remixing Clouds.
Then it’s onto Part 2 for DK’s Best of 2012 and a more laid back selection with Breton, the simply astonishing Banks remix for Andreya Triana, the beautiful Bodies by Wife and erie tones of Dean Blunt feat Inga Copeland. We close with a nod to a previous era with Adrian Younge and Quantic featuring Alice Russell.
