Solid Steel in association with Serato (4th September) In Hour 1 our guest is Mophono who released his new EP ‘M.O.3.’ on DJ Shadow’s Liquid Amber label last month. The fellow Bay Area producer digs deep with a mix featuring music from Death Grips, Flako, Broadcast, Doris Norton, Kaytranada, Coldcut and his track ‘Murder Man alongside Gaslamp Killer. He told us;
‘When I set out to do the Solid Steel mix, I envisioned 3 main chapter structures nice and tidy that I could weave material from the past and present.
• drum machines old and new with an industrial and post punk stain of disapproval
• vintage library moog robot world of radio transmission experimentation and learning
• international psych madness performed by new and old prog rhythm sections
After getting started on the mix, immediately I realized how tough the struggle would be.  Soon I would be aggressively wrestling these beasts into submission – before what I had seen as unique treasures to cherish and behold, instantly changed into nonconforming monster hybrids, making it impossible to compartmentalize them in any way.
Looking past the filth and run off, I saw beauty in their unruliness and chopped and scratched them to bits and pieces. Thanks for listening’
