Irked Vol. 5

Irked Vol. 5: It’s What Gets You Ahead In Life (2011)

Irked Vol. 5 premiered on Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel Radio on 25 March 2011

The mix was voted 2011 Guest Mix Of The Year by listeners and was broadcast again on Solid Steel Radio on 16 December 2011 for their end of year show.

“Irk steps back up to the Solid Steel decks for the first time since winning last year’s MOTY title, bringing with him his usual knack for juxtaposing quality track sequences with detailed scratch prowess and absurd sampling. He sets up with another signature hiphop intro, then makes a break for some bone-crunching beats from the likes of Broken Note, Bassnectar and our very own King Cannibal. Then it’s on to some electro-hiphop flavours, showcasing a bunch of great new sounds from friendly producers the world over, including Dizz1, Cherry Chan and Kiat, and irk’s Montreal-based pal Living Stone. Throw in a Bonobo track from the NinjaTune XX celebrations and a couple of UK hiphop giants on the way then it’s over to the dubstep and breaks for a solid landing.” – DK
