Channel Tres Features on Flight Facilities’ Latest Classic, ‘Lights Up’

Channel Tres Features on Flight Facilities’ Latest Classic, ‘Lights Up’

Today, Australian producer duo Flight Facilities return to their beloved fanbase, delivering a new single immersed in a feeling of West-Coast cool imparted by collaborator Channel Tres. Released on Future Classic/Glassnote Records, ‘Lights Up’ marks the band’s first release of 2021 with a direct flight to Channel Tres’ own Compton California.

The track marks a highly anticipated return to North America for the duo as well, who will be gracing the stage for three nights at Downtown Los Angeles’ Banc of California stadium alongside electronic giants RÜFÜS DU SOL this November. 50,000 additional tickets were added to keep up with demand after the first show sold out in mere minutes.

‘Lights Up’ is the first track to be released in over a year from the live-electronic selectors, who have been working together for over a decade, creating timeless, genre-defying classics drenched in a sense of nostalgia. ‘Lights Up’ is a continuation of this philosophy, aided by Channel Tres’ propensity for crossing genres and drawing inspiration from eras like 90s Detroit house and West-Coast hip-hop. The result is a track that belongs to these moments in time as much as it represents what’s next for the global dance sound, a confluence of feeling and style.

“We’ve always loved the sound of the early Detroit House scene that crossed over with the Paradise Garage era. Combined with our love for Channel’s voice, it seemed like a perfect fit. His voice has a magical ability to make songs that are made for strutting. We felt it was important to keep enough of our sound and influence in the track, to avoid it sounding too derivative, so we wanted to include some 90’s and 00’s elements to give the song its own character.”

Flight Facilities

While forthcoming performances at the Banc of California and New Zealand’s Snow Machine Festival point to exciting projects ahead, the guys have kept their productions flowing, most recently dropping a disco-forward remix of ‘Vintage‘ for New York bassist Blu DeTiger, delivering a brand new 1962-72 Decades mix, and launching their very own app – Flight Deck. The free IOS and Android compatible app, built to celebrate 10 years of Flight Facilities magic, is a one stop shop that houses a treasure trove of unreleased Flight Facilities tracks, bootleg cuts, mixtapes and more.

Initially gaining recognition in 2010 for singles like “Crave You” ft. Giselle Rosselli and “Foreign Language”, Flight Facilities has since been a constant industry driving force, which included releasing their debut and only full-length album to date Down to Earth in 2014. The LP went on to achieve gold certification and garner three ARIA nominations, with widespread appreciation for their feel-good, dance floor ready tunes. The band followed the album with a multi-year run of singles which included “Need You” ft. NÏKA, “Arty Boy” ft Emma Louise, “Stranded” ft. Broods, Reggie Watts, Broods & Saro, “All Your Love” ft Dustin Tebbutt, and “Better Than Ever” ft Aloe Blacc.

Channel Tres has been steadily continuing on his unstoppable trajectory, having most recently released his I Can’t Go Outside EP, an introspective mixtape which boasted a sexy blend of classic house and West Coast rap and featured collaborations with the likes of Tinashe and Tyler the Creator. He also featured on further major hits including “Impact” with SG Lewis and Robyn, and “Recap”, a collaboration alongside Kito and VanJess.

‘Lights Up’ is an eagerly awaited homecoming for Flight Facilities, who remain two of the most recognizable forces in the globally facing Australian electronic music scene that took hold in the early 2000s. As they prepare to once again position themselves center stage alongside budding superstars like Channel Tres, it is clear that the duo are ready to build upon the catchy and comforting sounds that remain at the core of the Flight Facilities journey.

2020 saw The Magician release his two track “Renaissance” EP in May on POTION Records, and while covid-19 kept him grounded the rest of the year, The Magician’s career has previously taken him to all corners of the earth, gracing dance floors and festival stages with a touch of magic – from Coachella to Primavera Sound Festival, Hideout Croatia, EDC Las Vegas, Warung in Brazil, Printworks London, Trouw in Amsterdam, Zouk in Singapore and many more. His early work included a 2011 multi-platinum remix of Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers,” which led to further massive pop collaborations with the likes of Chromeo and Clean Bandit and record deals with Parlophone/Warner Records.

The release of ‘One Vibration’ further cements The Magician’s position as an esteemed producer with deep ties to the electronic music community and beyond, and is a welcomed gem for listeners, appropriately previewed ahead of his highly anticipated ‘Magic Tape 100’.

The Magic Tape 100 will be available on all platforms on January 27

Alex Martian Drops Classics Leading up to His New Project in 2019

Alex Martian Drops Classics Leading up to His New Project in 2019

New York based up and coming producer Alex Martian has really been creating a place for himself amongst new wave electronic music listeners. With a style as complex yet vivid as the artwork he creates for each release, there is no shortage of awe in listening to his discography. It’s quite difficult to put a label on his sound though it incorporates a lot of jazzy chords, break rhythms, and sweeping synths. Having produced for just over 4 years, his musical variance and sound design is recognizably on par with names that have inspired him such as Sam Gellaitry, Monte Booker, and Gorillaz. Each Alex Martian track sounds like an autumn forest, filled with multitudes of complementary colors.

Leading up to a project drop in later 2019, Alex has released with labels like Future Vibes and Bonsai Collective as well as his remix of Ellzo’s “Spiral”. We’re stoked to see what the future holds for this young producer and to hear new Martian in the coming year.

Geller Drops his Debut Album “Astral Plane”

Geller Drops his Debut Album “Astral Plane”

Geller’s debut album Astral Plane is here, and it is nothing short of spectacular. After making
some noise in the SoundCloud beat-making scene for the since 2016, the 18 year-old producer went into a year-long hibernation from releasing music to craft what he calls “a perfect representation” of the emotions he has felt in the last year.

“Dealing with and depression and anxiety could be seen by a lot of people as a handicap, but honestly it was sort of to my advantage in making this album,” Geller says. “After my father passed away in 2017, I needed some way to express my emotions. Everything I was feeling just felt trapped inside of me, and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t find the words to
describe my emotions to doctors, friends, and family.”

Just shy of 45 minutes, the 11-track album takes us on an adventure through various moods and atmospheres. The short intro to the album, “Dreamstate,” insinuates falling asleep, or potentially leaving the physical realm and entering “the astral plane.” The bright and luscious synths on the track “Rewind” set the tone for the intergalactic adventure the album is about to take listeners on. The tracks “Every Girl” and “Contour Lines” shed light on brief happiness found in reminiscing over a lover from the past. Only to be contradicted by the dark, abrasive, loneliness of “Wasteland,” “Lullabies,” and “Wounded,” which serve as a sort of nightmare sequence in the dream that is the album. All to be concluded by the optimistic tone of the tracks “Eternal Sunshine,” and “Until Then.”

“As I was making this album, I really wanted to create this world where people could escape. I’ve always been very interested in dreams, so I thought having an album about one elongated dream would be the best way to do that.”

– Geller

Certainly a breath of fresh air, the album blends sounds of many genres—many of which are unorthodox for electronic music—into one opus piece. Astral Plane debuted at #7 on the U.S. iTunes Dance Music Chart upon its release on December 21, 2018, and has thus far been consigned by the likes of Kaskade and Sam Gellaitry. The album can be streamed or bought on all platforms. Listen below on Spotify and be sure to follow Geller on instagram here.
