love is...

I’m Valencia bound to the Benicassim festival for a dose of sun stroke, alcohol poisoning, and hopefully fine music.

Normal service may resume on my return, but first another crusty old edition of Coldcut’s Solid Steel radio show.

Back roughly 15 years for the classic Junior Reid sampling “Blood Vibes” from the Masters At Work, some shameless self publicity with Ninjatune’s Raggadelic Roots, and an old school Reggae ending courtesy of Marley, The Wailing Souls and Aswad. Crammed in between, a Coldcut R&S megamix, and a bit of lefty politics, “Privatise The Air” from Gary Clail and the Barmy Army, that’s as relevant in Gordon’s Britain as it was back in 1992.
