Flava D (UKG Special) at XOYO
The Eskibeat rude girl plays a high-octane set of strictly UK garage cuts – listen back.
Relying on the genre’s more danceable aspects, 2010 RBMA alumna Flava D, AKA Danielle Gooding, is one of the few rude girls that got in the male-dominated testosterone hub that is the LDN grime scene. Following her anything but humble beginnings under the wings of Wiley (take their first notable team-up “Talent,” from 2009), she has been a driving force in her mentor’s supergroup, A-List. Outside of the Eskibeat empire, Flava D signed her debut 12”, “Hold On,” over to the grime renovators at Butterz. In this episode, the UK bass champion performs a special set of slamming drum & bass selections during her 13-week residency at Shoreditch club XOYO.
