Flight Facilities for Triple j Mix Up Exclusives: 2002-2012
Flight Facilities shared the last mixtapes of their series for the Australian radio Triple J, for the period 2002 to 2012! They describe this mix as a little bit different from the previous ones, as it is “the decade that turned them into what they are now”, and call it their dance music bible. Actually, it could become mine too, as it is also the period during which I began to listen to a lot of music, and most of these songs are classics to me. I’m sure it will be the same for many of you!
If you want to learn about their process to make these mixes, visit their blog! In other news, Flight Facilities will release a new song this month! They will tour in Australia in May, and in Europe in July, check out their Facebook page for the dates.
Important to mention, they dedicated this mix to their friend and mentor Ajax, who passed away last month…
Here is the description of this mix:
This is the final installment of the decade mixes. But this time it’s a little bit different.
This is the decade that turned us into what we are now. This mix is effectively our condensed dance music bible (believe it or not, there are lots of tunes we couldn’t fit in). The mix is done in the same style in which we remember our clubbing experiences. Most notably, The Bang Gang parties every Friday night in Sydney. Those guys were a HUGE part of why we became DJ’s in the first place. This mix will, for better or worse, dig up a few dance-floor ‘moments’ for anyone who took part in the madness.
So many of these songs are classics to us, and probably are to many others too. It’s hard to hear these songs without cracking a smile and remembering a great time of irresponsibility.
You won’t find too many mixtapes in this style anymore. And certainly not from us. But we had to show what this decade was all about to us, and how it brought us to what we do today.
We’re dedicating this mix to our belated friend and mentor, Ajax. He’s had more influence on this final chapter than anyone will ever know.
Thanks to everyone who got behind these mixes. It’s been a long ride.
2012-2022 Mix coming in 9 years.
NOTE: If you’ve downloaded the past mixes to your iTunes or Ipod, you’ll know that they are broken down into chapters by each song. Well, there are over 80 songs in this mix so breaking it down into 15 second portions was going to be a little ridiculous. So we’ve broken this one down into chapters by year. Some are longer than others (2005 getting 10 minutes – too many huge tunes in one year!). You’ll find the track listing in the ‘Lyrics’ section of the iTunes info.
Don’t forget to name those events with the time markers!
