FLIGHT FACILITIES – CRAVE YOU (Disco/Pop – Australia)

It’s been a long wait but Sydney-based duo Flight Facilities have finally released their first single! We’d been waiting for “Crave You” for over two months now and expectations were high. All the stories surrounding their identities did help build up the hype around the duo, but it was mainly their music that got every blogger quivering with excitement.

Featuring vocals by young Aussie chanteuse Giselle Rosselli, the single is out now via Bang Gang 12 Inch and it comes packed with 7 (seven!) remixes by some of the best producers around: The 90s, Cassian, Ted & Francis.

This weekend also saw the release of the first unofficial remix of “Crave You”. Bxentric, known for his participation in the Moda Parties, dropped a very polished new version of the track, which gives it an even more chilled and groovy vibe…

FLIGHT FACILITIES – TAKING FLIGHT (Electro – Australia)

The identity of the artists behind Flight Facilities remains mysterious… Rumour has it that this project is the brainchild of Jimmy 2 Sox and (possibly) U-Go-B, two Sydneysiders affiliated with Australian electro labels Bang Gang 12 inches and Modular Recordings.

Their page on LastFM says they met at a Holy Ghost! DJ set in New York and immediately hit it off, sharing loves in music, literature and movies. Plans to work together were formed then but didn’t really take off until the following year, when they started releasing remixes for a bunch of great artists such as The C90s, Bag Raiders, The Lowbrows, Sneaky Sound System, Toecutter and James Curd.

They are just about to release a fantastic single, “Crave You”, that will be out in a couple of months (get it HERE). In the meantime, you can check it out just below.

They are also planning to release an album called Taking Flight some time in 2010. For more info and updates visit Flight Facilities on MySpace. Buy the music on Flight Facilities

THE LOWBROWS – DREAM IN THE DESERT (Electro/Dance – Japan)

The Lowbrowsare a creative unit that was formed in 2005 by Chaki (multi instrumentalist and DJ) and Emi (classically trained musician). Their edgy  electro dance sound is always looking towards the future, and gives you a sense of innovation with every listen!

Their first self titled EP was released in March 2007 but is no longer available. They gained attention in February 2008, when a then unreleased track “Melody & Shudder” was remixed by Dexpistols and featured on their compilation Apple.Lesson.4. They would also gain further attention when the Bang Gang Deejays featured ‘Dream In The Desert’ on their compilation; ‘D is For Disco, E is For Dancing’. As a matter of fact, Chaki has performed DJ sets alongside the Bang Gang Deejays, but also Hot Chip, Friendly Fires or Digitalism.

With an amazing reputation for their remix work, they are receiving a rush of offers from both Japanese and international artists (Simian Mobile Disco, Chromeo, 80Kidz). In between remixes and gigs, they released an album, For Whom The Bell Tolls, and more recently a mini album, Danse Macabre.

The mini-album has eight tracks in total, including a reworking of the glorious “Dream In The Desert” (get it on Beatport or iTunes). A new fully fledged album, ripe with fresh material is expected in early 2010… In the meantime, check out their MySpace for updates!
