Just a few hours ago Sydney duo Flight Facilities shared the video for the single “Foreign Language”, a summery disco pop number featuring Jess Higgs on vocals. Shot and directed by Dimitri Basil, this retro-looking video is the perfect companion for FF’s 70s-inspired jam.
There is still no official date of release (or title) for a hypothetical debut album by the ever so elusive Australian duo, so for the time being we might as well enjoy a couple of remixes. Beni‘s take on “Foreign Language” keeps the original vibe intact but it strips the mix down and adds a touch of glitchy electronica. On the other hand, Elizabeth Rose turns the song into a chilled after party trip-hop number.

Sydney duo Flight Facilities have finally released their brand new single “Foreign Language (Feat. Jess)” via Aussie electro label Future Classic and it’s already up for stream on Soundcloud.
Flight Facilities very first solo track “Crave You”, which featured guest vocals by Sydney-based chanteuse Giselle, took everyone by surprise and became a massive underground hit. The duo, who cut their teeth with cult party remixes (for Sneaky Sound System, Cut Copy, The Lowbrows, etc), created what became arguably the best pop track of 2010 and it’s pretty safe to say that “Foreign Language” has all the right ingredients for another timeless summer anthem.
Note that “Foreign Language” will be released on vinyl, with remixes by the likes of Will Saul, Drop Out Orchestra and Rocco Raimundo, on August 29th, but it is already available as a download from all major download platforms. Get it now on

Brooklyn duo Holy Ghost! just never stop, do they? It’s been a little over a month since the release of their self-titled debut album on DFA Records and they keep pulling gorgeous remix after gorgeous out of their seemingly bottomless magic hat.
For their latest release, the Wait & See EP, Alex Frankel and Nick Milhiser have invited five of dance music’s titans to remix their absurdly catchy new single “Wait & See”, one of the standout tracks from their album. CFCF, Flight Facilities, Moby, Kris Menace and Richard X each steer the song in new directions but they all find a way to capitalize on the irresistible danceability of the original.
And here’s a couple more remixes just to celebrate Holy Ghost’s new release. First up is a glistening, gassed-up version of “Static On The Wire” courtesy of RAC (Remix Artist Collective). The second remix is a disco-house edit of “I Know I Hear” by Jacques Renault.

It’s been a long and painful wait but we can finally see light at the end of the tunnel. Indeed, there’s just over two weeks to go until Australia’s finest pioneers of disco synth pop Cut Copy release their new album, Zonoscope, on Modular Records.
After their highly praised 2008 release, In Ghost Colours, which spawned gorgeous singles such as “So Haunted”, “Hearts On Fire”, “Lights and Music” and “Far Away”, expectations are high for its long-awaited follow-up. Well, judging by the quality of the first single taken off Zonoscope, Cut Copy are not going to disappoint.
As one would expect with any Cut Copy release, “Take Me Over” has been remixed by a host of prestigious artists, including Mylo, Flight Facilities, Azari & III, Midnight Magic… First up is Flight Facilities, who give the track their trademark funky tropical vibe, turning it into a bashy summer slow-jam with warm synths, wah wah guitar and even some sea gull samples.

Mylo takes a different approach to this track and decides to go all out on big beats and clubby synths. This six and half minute long super sleek electro extravaganza takes things back to the disco and we thank him for that.
The Cutters are currently polishing their live show ahead of the worldwide Zonoscope tour which will take them to the UK, Scandinavia, Germany and France in March, and then on to the fair shores of the USA in March and April.
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.
