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.

Omas & Aver – Out Of Time 7″

Here’s a quick heads up about the recent release from Manchester’s My First Moth label, a great 7″ of summery funk from Omas and Aver (DJ and Beatmaker from The Natural Curriculum), The record also features a remix from My First Moth boss DJ Mischief and has been getting support from the likes of DJ Format – “I like both those mixes a lot, nice work! I like the super heavy drums on the original but the DJ Mischief mix has some great music” – so make sure you get ’em while they’re hot!

Buy the new Omas 7 on My First Moth!

The more loyal MOF site visitors and downloaders among you may recognise the A side of this fantastic new release by Omas, but its no longer available on here and we would urge you ALL to go out and find it in your local record store. And if you can’t manage that, then buy it online from the link below! Another great release from My First Moth, Neighbourhood crew in effect. Blaow.

My First Moth 004

The 4th release from Dj Mischief’s My First Moth imprint and the 3rd in a recent series of 7″s. This one is a real treat. Stepping away from previous remix work this 7″ combines a pretty raucos breaks and flute driven A side and a more relaxed and head nodding instrumental  B side “1986”. Quite possibly their best release to date, GET ON IT NOW!
