Holy smokes is this most ever awesome

It’s now 20 years since Beck released ‘Odelay’.

Then known for his anti folk work, the songwriter charged head-long in a fresh direction – with more than a little help from the Dust Brothers.

The hip-hop production team re-configured Beck’s work, with their labyrinthine array of samples resulting in one of the decade’s most striking albums.

DJs Moneyshot and Cheeba have joined forces to steer a new mix, exploring the influences, samples, edits, and remixes that would craft the ‘Odelay’ universe.

It makes for fascinating listen. Part of the always-reliable Solid Steel mix series, you can tune in below.

What a cracking idea for a mix… brilliantly executed and something a little/lot different for most here. Oddelay reminds me of working in the Flying Nun packing area… it was a album most trashed, good times.

Sure beats the noise of the builders drill that’s been my days accompaniment.
