It’s about time I started a thread for my radio show.
Top Flight goes out every Tuesday on Red Bull Radio – 7pm UK, 2pm NY, 11am LA. The focus is on club music that doesn’t fit the house and techno template. Including but not limited to: jungle, footwork, dancehall, dubstep, reggaeton, Jersey club, ballroom/vogue, grime, gqom, ~deconstructed club~, FDM, kuduro, and of course aquacrunk.
I’ll do a post in here every week to let you know what’s on the show, so if you wanna put in a request or send me tunes, go right ahead.
This week (Tuesday, 28th August) my guests are Orson and Hops from long-running Berlin bass hotspot Version. They talk to me about bringing dubstep to Germany back in 2006 and how they’ve built a dedicated following for their parties at OHM, which they call the Plastic People of Berlin.
Plus, I’ve got new tracks from Lechuga Zafiro on NAAFI, Uganda’s Nyege Nyege Tapes and its sublabel Hakuna Kulala, Nazamba on The Bug’s label Pressure, Scratcha DVA, Nan Kole x Prynce Mini, Bryte, Lurka and, in the regular ~ambient zone~, some new Yamaneko.
