A double dose of Australian club culture with tastemaker Nina Las Vegas and rising star DJ Plead.
Every week on Top Flight, Chal Ravens sources the best new bass, breaks and riddims from around the world, from gqom to grime, dancehall to drum and bass, footwork to FDM, and more. This week, she serves a double dose of Aussie expertise with guests Nina Las Vegas and DJ Plead. A renowned DJ, radio host and producer, Nina Las Vegas has been a leading light on Australia’s club scene for over a decade. As she gears up for another busy year with her label, NLV Records, she tells Chal about the challenges of switching lanes from DJ to producer and the sudden decline of Sydney’s rave scene. Next, DJ Plead talks us through the flavors of his new Pleats Plead EP on Nervous Horizon, which is inspired by UK funky and the Lebanese weddings he attended as a kid. He also delivers a cross-cultural Top Flight guest mix featuring music from the Middle East. On top of that, Chal has new tunes from Bambounou, Textasy and ELLLL.
