2022 marked a string of successes for Flight as she celebrated 25 years of playing exquisite sets to music fans across the globe. The ’25 Years of Flight’ European tour culminated with a blistering b2b set with DJ Storm at Boiler Room Festival Amsterdam, a monumental two-hour soundscape that has amassed over half a million views on YouTube so far. Flight closed off the year with a DJ mag award for ‘Outstanding Contribution’ to dance music while Mixmag named her one of the ‘DJs Who Defined The Year’
This year, ‘Turn It Up: A Short History of Drum & Bass’, a BBC radio documentary produced and narrated by Flight, has been nominated for a Radio Academy ARIA in the ‘Best Music Special’ category. This radio production followed ‘Windrush Stories’, an award-winning podcast series that garnered widespread acclaim for its beautiful exploration of the Caribbean experience in Britain.
Flight has a rare mystical talent that transcends time and space. For over a quarter of a century, Flight’s star has been in ascendance. Her influence on the scene has been immense and in March the New York Times wrote of her inspiration to a whole new generation of artists including Nia Archives.
Flight regularly plays at Rupture and residencies have included Metalheadz and Swerve. She has produced music with Breakage, and released on labels such as Reinforced, Bassbin, Carbon, and The North Quarter. In 2005, Flight started her own label – play:musik – which launched the career of several up and coming producers.
Flight gained worldwide recognition when she became the first woman to host a national Drum & Bass show. The Next Chapter on BBC Radio 1Xtra was a seminal fixture that quickly became The Holy Grail for discovering new styles and experimental sounds.
Flight returns to the airwaves with a new monthly radio show every third Wednesday between 9pm – 11pm on the legendary and freshly relaunched Kool FM.
