For the Friday of Future Everything festival we head into Islington Mill for a feast of visuals and turntablism, featuring DJ Cheeba (Solid Steel A/V Set), Hot Vimto (a special joint set by two of Manchester’s finest turntablists Danny Drive Thru and G Kut), Hoya Hoya’s Jonny Dub, Omas (My First Moth / Dayse& Aver) and resident Mind on Fire DJs.
Bristol’s DJ Cheeba is the sight and sound of Solid Steel’s new school. Always on top of emer…ging software, he is at the forefront of the new breed of DJs presenting audio and visuals through turntables. Mixing, scratching, cutting and remixing sounds (and pictures) in true hip hop style.
Heady beats and blistering sounds meld with iconic music videos and obscure youtube gems as Cheeba dices and splices audio and video live on turntables and midi pads with a nod to his turntablist history and love of cut and paste music. Following the invitation to join Ninja Tune’s legendary Solid Steel Radio Show as a resident in 2010, he has spent the last couple of years self-releasing DVDs and relentlessly touring some of the most prestigious venues in the UK, all over Europe and beyond.
