Ninja Tune Feature my Friends Fields and Drugs Mix

Click to enter Solidsteel at ninjatune

Point 1, Ninja Tune are one of the most rightfully respected record labels Britain has ever produced.

Point 2, 18th August 2009, My beautiful Dad suddenly dies in Canada on holiday.  Three days later I’m there with my brothers. Two days after that I’m sat 10 feet away from my Dad’s body  thats lying in a coffin at his funeral. We, thats  me, mom and my two brothers Keith and Duncan are  spending the last 10 minutes we’ll ever spend with our Dad and we chose to spend it holding each other tightly and listening to the  Cinematic Orchestra – To Build a Home my familys most moving moment.

Also Ninja tunes finest.

Point 3,  Nearly exactly a year on, nearly everything has changed theres been more of everything that comes with being human.   Death, sadness, happiness, friendship and love, and if you were with me last Thursday night at the start of The Big Chill festival when I was Dj’ing in a giant whisky barrel, while the sun was making its way towards the horizon. You would have thought and thought rightly that  the next Tuesday would be as far away in my mind  as  the Paralympics are in the thoughts of a moth.  I had a weekend of drinking cider,  listening to tunes and dancing about with my girl and my pals from Purple Radio.  The planets time space continuum had become  a 3 day bubble and Monday could go fuck off and Tuesday  would never exist again.

Tuesday came and hail praise to the Eleventhirtyeight inbox as I read


From : Ninjatune.

I open it up and they want to use a mix of mine on their Solid Steel podcast this week.

So here it is.

Cheers World and cheers Dad.

The Regret Of Jon Michael Turner

I came across the speech involved in this track produced by myself Stu Eleventhirtyeight and Delesh Chauhan in 2008. I was  in a youtube click trance  when I was halted in my tracks by this speech given by Jon Michael Turner at the ‘Winter Soldier’ event hosted by Iraq Veterans Against The War. Plase take a listen and I’d welcome any  comments.

Funk soul re-edit of a classic. Johnny Hammond – Tell Me What To Do

Click for the wiki on the man himself.

I put ‘new years day’ into a search on my hard drive and this track came up, I’d almost forgotten I’d done it. I did this edit on New Years Day last year 2009. I was listening to the original over and over. What a track! I ended up fiddling about with it and making an edit. I sped it up added a breakdown, some subtle beats some delays and elongated and shortened bits.

In laymans terms Ive changed a bit but preserved its heart.

Led Zeppelin + Me = I love them

Another edit I’ve done this time of  Led Zeppelins –  No Quarter. I did this edit for my bi weekly Tuesday night shoe or show as I like to call it when my fingers type correctly.  I do this  show at the magnificent I would hope in doing this little edit I don’t receive a musical  purist brigade  knockin down my door with their unlubricated Gibson Les Paul Guitars pointing towards my dry anus.

Thom Yorke edit

I did this edit of Thom Yorke from Radiohead’s Harrowdown Hill about a year and a half ago I think. Have a listen and let me know what you think. I did the visuals in the rather great  Modul8 software.
