“We’ve always loved the sound of the early Detroit House scene that crossed over with the Paradise Garage era. Combined with our love for Channel’s voice, it seemed like a perfect fit. His voice has a magical ability to make songs that are made for strutting. We felt it was important to keep enough of our sound and influence in the track, to avoid it sounding too derivative, so we wanted to include some 90’s and 00’s elements to give the song its own character.”Flight Facilities
Flight Facilities is BACK and it feels like they never left. I’m more than ready to find a dance floor and immerse myself in the cool vocals of their West-Coast collaborator Channel Tres. The first release of 2021, the heater is out today on Future Classic/Glassnote Records.
‘Lights Up’ encapsulates Flight Facilities well-loved ability to create timeless, genre-defying classics drenched in a sense of nostalgia. It doesn’t matter if you’ve heard one of their songs before or not, because their ability to transport a listener back and forward in time is unparalleled. This, plus Channel Tres’ ability to cross genres and draw inspiration from eras like 90s Detroit house and West-Coast hip-hop make ‘Lights Up’ a delicious sonic rollercoaster.
The track marks 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. 50,000 additional tickets were added to keep up with demand after the first show sold out in mere minutes. Keep your eyes peeled for re-sales and giveaways, it’s not a show to be missed!
