Australian producer duo and live act Flight Facilities return with a loaded remix package of their two most recent releases, ‘The Ghost’ and ‘Lights Up ft. Channel Tres’. The remix package sees five unique voices from the global electronic music scene put their own spins on the originals.
An industry driving force since 2010, Flight Facilities has thrilled their fans by ramping up new releases this year. Their first single of the year ‘Lights Up,’ featured West Coast selector Channel Tres, and sits at over two million cumulative streams and climbing. The ‘Lights Up’ remix package sees the track get a makeover from three international tastemakers.
‘The Ghost’ is another reminder of Flight Facilities’ ability to effortlessly pull inspiration from a wide range of musical genres while still making it recognizable as their own. The darker, heavily synthesized record lends itself to grittier reworks, released July 9, allowing Gerd Janson, Running Back label boss and one of Germany’s best and most versatile producers; and ABSOLUTE., a formidable name from the queer club scene that stepped out of the London underground in the past few years, to add their signature touches.
Gerd Janson’s seven minute rendition of ‘The Ghost’ sees him jack up the tempo as he transforms the track into a club-ready groove that demonstrates his widely-known mixing expertise, while ABSOLUTE. makes ‘The Ghost’ his own as he incorporates breaks with prominent 303 bass lines, transporting us back to the early days of the UK rave scene.
Three forthcoming sold out performances alongside RÜFÜS DU SOL at Los Angeles’ Banc of California this November plus a slew of US tour dates with the trio keep fans guessing whether they’ll be graced with more new Flight Facilities hits in 2021. Luckily, the abundant remix package acts as a welcomed indicator of the caliber and tone of music they may be able to expect as Flight Facilities return to the international stage.
