Australian producer duo Flight Facilities return, 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. Out now on all platforms, stream the duo's latest collaborative single below, along with its newly released music video.
“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. Aided by Channel Tres' propensity for crossing genres and drawing inspiration from eras like 90s Detroit house and West-Coast hip-hop, the resulting is a track that represents what’s next for their combined global dance sound, a confluence of feeling and style expanded upon a foundation of smooth house music and disco.
"Lights Up" is an eagerly awaited homecoming for Flight Facilities. 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 their journey. Steadily continuing on his upward trajectory, Channel Tres 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; featuring collaborations with the likes of Tinashe and Tyler the Creator.
The latest release comes alongside news of 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. While forthcoming performances like the aforementioned and at New Zealand’s Snow Machine Festival point to exciting projects ahead, the duo has 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 called Flight Deck.
