The Solid Steel radio show regularly features AV mixes alongside the audio and this week DK gives you another treat for eyes as well as your ears with his full on Audio Visual mix 'Cymatic Frequencies'.
It's packed full of musical highlights from 2010, Ninja Tune & Big Dada XX celebrations and of course the odd classic thrown in for good measure, all with added visuals (most of them created for each track). No other radio show regularly gives you this 'visual version of a mixtape'
We start where we ended the last AV mix with the anthemic 'Hyph Mngo' by Joy Orbison and a few choice words from Sun Ra. We continue in a future vein with the Eliphino Remix for Kidkanevil, Maddslinky given a Toddla T lick, and the heavy 'Work them' by Ramadanman.
Then it's a Ninja Tune trio and a Big Dada double, James Blake floating over the Altrice remix of Caribou, before turning up the bass to 11 for Bassnectar. The beats stay heavy as we skip through George Lenton and the Jamie XX remix of Gil Scott-Heron, an 'old skool hip hop' trio, mixed with RackNRuin and Vent for extra dance floor punch, and it's a D n B finish with the DJ Marky remix of 'Wile Out' by Zinc, Sunny by James Brown tweaked by Featurecast and we end on the sublime Flying Lotus remix for Andreya Triana.
Listen, Watch and Enjoy.

I was the assistant art director on this music video, which was directed by X, then known as 'Little X.'
I created all the graphics and props in this video. The cereal box scene is my favorite.
Little X started out as a very talented storyboard artist for Hype Williams, whom I worked for on multiple jobs, mainly as a grip. Eventually, X was given the opportunity to direct and his visual style made him a successful music video director.
Another person that rose through that camp of crew members is Benny Boom, who at the time was a Production Assistant. Benny was an amazing PA, who is now a very successful director.
The film crews that I worked with in NYC were always there to help each other out when one of us wanted to film a project. I miss that camaraderie.
