Five of Flight’s Faves

dj flight

Ahead of her show at Acetate, where she’ll be playing in her ‘More Styles’ mode as opposed to her usual drum and bass tip, DJ Flight has given us a run through some of her all time favourite tracks. The Metalheadz affiliate has been brightening the UK’s airwaves for years, guiding the 140+ genres through their various transformations from jungle to dubstep and beyond. As a host on 1Extra, she can be classed amongst the scene’s key linchpins, and has been a voice in support of experimental new music.

It’s no surprise that Pearson Sound has enlisted her to show off some of her eclectic record collection at his vinyl-only love-in this weekend. So, here we go with Five of Flight’s Faves:

 

1. Alice Smith – Love Endeavour (Maurice Fulton Remix)

“Definitely one of my all-time favourites, of any genre. Sexy, stylish, sublime, and the vocal break down 2/3 of the way in is pure euphoria. I’ve probably included this track in nearly every ‘alternative’/ More Styles set I’ve played since getting it. Also it’s just been reissued for the first time since 2006/2007 – go buy!”

 

2. Theo Parrish – Falling Up (Carl Craig Remix)

“There are too many excellent C2/ Theo originals and remixes to pick an absolute favourite, but this one has gotta be up there. One of the most hypnotic and mysterious vibes you’ll come across; obviously best listened to loud, in a low-ceilinged dark club, eyes closed, body swaying business.”

 

3. Horace Andy – I Don’t Wanna Be Left Outside

“Anyone that knows me well, knows I’m a HUGE fan of Horace Andy. I love his voice so much. Originally released in 1980, but I picked up a Wackie’s repress maybe 6/7 years ago while I still worked at BM Soho – having the Dub Vendor guys operating out of the shop at the time was a schooling and a real pleasure. Flip over the 10″ for a sweet, quite subtle King Tubby dub.”

 

4. 2562 – Love in Outer Space

“Aaaahhh I have so much time for 2562/ A Made Up Sound music. Another producer I love to the maximum. This piece sounds exactly like the title suggests – the last third especially. Cosmic niceness.”

 

5. Pangaea – Bone Sucka

“Feels wrong not to include something new/ more recent. I love the attitude of Pangaea’s music – raw underground breakbeat hardcore done well, and Hessle is of course a great label. I have a lot of respect for what the 3 of them have done over the years; I actually felt quite humbled by being invited to play at Acetate. Let’s have some fun!”
