Founded by Coldcut in 1988 on Kiss FM, the Solid Steel radio show now gets beamed to over 36 countries, and showcases the talents of the world’s best DJs and their broad range of beats.
The resident selectors are broken down into ‘old’ and ‘new’ guards, with Matt Black and Jon More holding their end down with DK and Strictly Kev (pictured above), who warrant their own places on this list anyway.
As part of the 20th anniversary new recruits Boom Monk Ben, Cheeba, Moneyshot and Ruckus Roboticus were brought in to keep the show at the edge of dopeness.
Several CD mixes have been released from the likes of Scruff, Kentaro and Amon Tobin, and recent video sets from Hextatic hint at exciting new A/V directions for the station.
