The show plays music from Coldcut and Ninja Tune and has as as guest Matt Black who will be playing a set at Electric Castle festival in July.

Matt is one of the founders of Ninja Tune Recordings,  the popular and innovative record label who turned 30 in 2020; he’s also started the underground hip hop label Big Dada, and he was running the Solid Steel show started at Kiss FM during the pirate radio days and later at Radio 1, then later the Solid Steel podcast.

Part of the Coldcut duo together with Jonathan Moore, he talks about its origin: “a love of music and wanting to do something with records. A disc jockey plays records while a DJ plays with records.” he says in an interview for MusicTech. He’s also started a fresh live streaming ilbc.tv jamm platform inspired from the DMC DJ competition.

His long passion for beats, pieces, rhythms and music, his science background kept him active also in the technology space; he started the Pirate TV on Twitch and Youtube during pandemia.

Recent inventions include the beat app Jamm and Pixi, a visual synth instrument. He also collaborated with Erica Synths on the Zen Delay effect built in the spirit of Coldcut.

Matt's stated ambition is to 'create positive art, music and spiritual technology to blow the minds of the entire planet and advance cooperative strategies'.

What was the spirit of the pirate radio back in the days when both Matt and Jon started Dj-ing back in the days? How is this relevant today? We’re training to answer some of the questions and try to understand better interdependence in music and technology.
