User Bio

Solid Steel is a weekly 2 hour radio mix show, now running for over 2 and a half decades. Every week one of the regular contributors pairs up with a guest to mix and match 'the broadest beats'.

Matt Black and Jonathan More (aka Coldcut) started out on London's pirate KISS FM radio station with separate shows but then joined forces to present Solid Steel in 1988, a few years before the station finally went legal. In the early 90's they were joined on a regular basis by PC, shortly followed by Strictly Kev, for the two hour mix marathons.

DK jumped on board in 1997, quickly rising to become producer and in 2000 the show enjoyed a spell on BBC London. In 2004 J Mountain joined the ranks and the show continued airing a diverse selection of guest mixes along with the occasional special interview. Solid Steel has spread it's wings, going on to broadcast in over 30 stations around the world, spawned a mix CD series and club nights. The podcast has already reached over a million downloads and new members Ruckus Roboticus, Cheeba, Boom Monk Ben and DJ Moneyshot step up in 2009 to expand the line up. Now we also enter a new phase with videocasts and other assorted AV projects, something that Coldcut have pioneered for nearly as long as the radio show.
