Solid Steel (16th May)This week the show has a distinct 80’s feel about it starting with a mix from Cut Chemist featuring remixes and songs from ‘Funk Off’, a compilation of music by 1980’s French post punk, industrial, minimal collective Vox Populi! and Pacific 231. Cut Chemist discovered their material in 2004 while on tour/record digging in Milan where he picked up a compilation featuring their track ‘Megamix’. Originally released in the 80s, the track was not rooted in disco, hip hop & DJ history but rather post punk and industrial influences. Music Concrete is what the collective would have perhaps described their approach at the time. “Wild Style on dust” was how Cut’s collaborator Tom Fitzgerald described it on hearing it 20 years later. Finding this record ultimately led to Cut Chemist tracking down the group, bonding over shared aesthetics and getting their blessing for this collection, which includes unreleased tracks, photographs and little-seen flyers and art from the group. The vinyl and CD are released in the UK on 9th June through A Stable Sound.
Jurassic 5 will be celebrating their 20th Anniversary this year, with a European tour kicking off in June to be followed by a special Word of Mouth Reunion tour in the U.S. featuring Dilated Peoples & The World Famous Beat Junkies.
Stream the entire Cut Chemist Presents Funk Off: Vox Populi! and Pacific 231 compilation now on YouTube.

PT Anderson’s opus is a mesmerizing, hilarious and terrifying plunge into the porn industry of the San Fernando Valley in the 1970s. Starring Mark Wahlberg in the first starring role that established him as a serious actor. Great performances by Julianne Moore, John C Reilly, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Heather Graham and Burt Reynolds as the silver fox director. Based loosely on real events in the life of John Holmes and others, Boogie Nights is a wild ride through the funhouse of the disco era, ebullient and shattering.
Cut Chemist spins before and after the screening.
