Exit Music’s Itoa blazes a trail beyond footwork and jungle on a breakneck Top Flight guest mix.
Every week on Top Flight, journalist Chal Ravens digs out 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, Top Flight recruits a high-speed specialist for a breakneck Top Flight guest mix: London-based DJ and producer Itoa, a fresh voice on legendary drum & bass label Exit Records. He talks to Chal about the intersection of footwork and jungle and the current surge of sets going to 160 BPM and beyond, before taking over for a half hour of fast music and exclusive edits. On top of that, Chal has the week’s best new releases from the global dance continuum, including Principe’s Puto Tito, Air Max 97, Shygirl and Dotorado Pro.
