In Hour 1 our guest is Chrome Sparks (aka Jeremy Malvin) following the recent release of his debut self titled album on Counter Records. The album is the product of an obsessive approach to production as much it is about a restless hunt for new ideas over several years spent between Malvin’s Navy Yard, Brooklyn studio and a secluded cabin in upstate New York. He spent a month there to escape the distractions of the city, and to distill his process during what became an intensive period of creativity. He is currently on tour with Machinedrum in North America, before heading over to Europe for 6 dates in May. He told us;
"An expedition. embarking from somewhere in the past, metamorphosing into faux-familiarity, while diving into ephemeral moments unknown, rustling from celebration to introspection.
In Hour 2 we welcome back Paul White who last appeared on Solid Steel in 2013 and is back celebrating the release of his latest album 'Rejuvenate', which is out today on R & S Records. As the title suggests, Rejuvenate marks a rebirth for the South London musician who has abandoned sampling altogether and he wrote, played and produced the album himself, which features Denai Moore, Shungudzo and his sister Sarah Williams White. He is also known for producing tracks for Danny Brown (amongst others) and was responsible for 10 of the 15 tracks on 'Atrocity Exhibition'. He had this to say about his mix;
"I wanted this mix to really reflect what music is moving me at the moment. I mainly made this mix for myself. There's some new music I'm into, some old music I'm into, and some solo and produced music by myself. Its a window into who I am musically. I love all music so couldn't include everything in only an hour mix obviously, but its a look into how I hear music as all the same thing, the human experience."
