Take Off with Flight Facilities
Electronic dance music, or EDM, has made it big in the mainstream and Flight Facilities
made sure to make the most of it. The duo's take on electronic is unique because of their indie spin, which blends dance music
with traditional sounds of jazz and classical music for a new experience fans will love.
will be zigzagging about the planet with a schedule that promises plenty of concert time in 2014. They'll take off from Australia,
and head to Washington, D.C., northern California, and then Vancouver. Afterwards, they'll double back to San Francisco and
return to their homeland for appearances in Byron Bay, Marion Bay and Lorne. Then, it's a quick jaunt to Jakarta, Indonesia,
then back over to Melbourne.
Your Flight Facilities tickets will put you face to face with a couple of fellows
who wear vintage flight headgear, including goggles and collared shirts with ties. They've been known to book themselves under
the name of Hugo and Jimmy from Trinidad and Tobago and are rumored to introduce themselves as Calvin Harris to journalists.
The electronic campaign of the current surge in Australian talent is being led, or rather flown, by Flight
Facilities. The lounge-like ambiance of their fresh take on disco house music has crowds grooving in international synchronicity,
kind of like the guys in the band. James "Jimmy" Nathan Lyell and Hugo Stuart Gruzman are each 50 percent of this outfit,
which began mixing songs for other groups in 2009. As their whimsical name suggests, these two are making sure that they enjoy
the ride by maintaining a sense of humor. They're reportedly aloof, vague, obscure and downright misleading sometimes.
2010, Flight Facilities had composed their first original, called "Crave You," and recruited vocalist Giselle Rosselli to
add the finishing layers. The track took off and landed at No. 19 on the Triple J Top 100. The song was strong enough on its
own to put Flight Facilities on the map. American rap artist The Kid Bilal sampled the groove in a remix that he called "She
Craves Me," which was featured on the Ourstage website -- an MTV partner. The song was well-promoted by the band's label Bang
Gang, and the push helped it achieve heavy local rotation. This led to a tour of numerous Australian cities, then a trip to
Japan and back. By 2011, the duo had produced another hit track, called "Foreign Language," which landed on the radar of the
Triple J Hottest 100 at No. 72.
Everything started with "Crave You" and Giselle Rosselli in 2010 and was
quickly followed by the vocal stylings of Jess Higgs on the track "Foreign Language" in 2011. The following year yielded a
set of hits -- the first being "With You" featuring Grovesnor on vocals. The track was followed by the romantically named
"Clair de Lune," which featured the voice of Christine Hoberg. The song peaked at No. 38 on the Australian charts, giving
it platinum status, according to the Australian Recording Industry Association. The band also had multiple hits in 2013, starting
with "I Didn't Believe" and "Stand Still."
If you love to dance, your Flight Facilities tickets will
allow you to be inspired to do just that. Their live shows are a continuous onslaught of steady beats mixed with just enough
bass to get you grooving and enough texture to keep you relaxed. They spin extended dance versions of their hit songs and
pull it off like a couple of pilots who just landed at their vacation destination.
