Solid Sounds Podcast

Music is essential to Made Solid and the Solid Sounds Podcast mixes highlight some of our most influential songs. Here you'll find classics from all genres, rarities and new productions that are moving us. We listen to everything so don;t be surprised if you hear Brazilian jazz next to 60's surf rock or a rare soul 45 mixed into a new bass track.

Most mixes are recorded live, mixed by Peter Maxwell. We'll have some friends drop in from time to time. Subscribe in itunes or download each mix directly from the site.
