Joakim and Morgan Page enlisted to remix Flight Facilities’ ‘All Your Love’Flight Facilities

After exploring acoustic territory on their latest release, Hugo Guzman and James Lyell of Flight Facilities have enlisted two of electronic music’s notable artists to create remixes of “All Your Love” across genres. The original features vocalist Dustin Tebbutt on a melancholy, subtly groovy track, that now with its latest re-up was a sleeper opportunity for some stellar remixing from progressive house and pop crossover artist Morgan Page and French multi-genre artist Joakim.

Jumping right in, Joakim immediately grabs attention with his scintillating “Paradise” mix, whose production is just so good it made it onto the EP in instrumental and vocal mix form. Playing off of the synth run during the original’s bridge, Joakim builds an inviting, hopeful soundscape. Morgan Page takes another element from “All Your Love” and brings it out in true commercial house form, letting arpeggios dominate the song’s new sound. Letting elements of the original shine through, Page emphasizes the emotion from the track’s original form to evolve to a dance floor ready remix.

After a three year long hiatus from releasing new music, ODESZA finally unleashed their third studio album, A Moment Apart, last fall, much to fans’ skirmish delight. The Seattle-based duo, made up of Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight, hunkered down in their home studio in a winter’s long search of inspiration for their next project of PNW-tinged sounds. They arose from their creative cocoons with a 16-track Grammy nominated LP, which also premiered at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Electronic/Dance Albums Chart.

“We kind of rediscovered [our] sound, in a sense, and reconnected to it,” said Knight of the album, “It has flavors of what was, but is also something new and progressive.”

Now that the indie-electronic superstars have just wrapped their sold-out album accompanying world tour, the pair has tapped three talented producers for an official “Higher Ground” remix EP. From Flight Facilities‘ bubbly, upbeat take on the single, to Reske’s slow tempo, soulful rendition, to pluko’s ethereal, echoing landscape, each re-imagined track injects a distinctive new energy into the single, with added sonic elements for evoking different tones and moods. The strongest element of the three remixes, when taken together, is how they spotlight the strength of Naomi Wild’s angelic vocals, for which the original was primarily built around.

Flight Facilities exhibit outstanding production prowess on collaborative ‘Stranded’

It’s been three years since the Aussie duo Flight Facilities teamed up with Reggie Watts for their powerful production “Sunshine,” a track off the duo’s last record Down To Earth. 

Strongly akin to its heavily-weighted, and yet ever so light-heartedly delivered funk, Flight Facilities has teamed up with Reggie Watts once more for a new track, entitled “Stranded.” But it seems good things come in threes, as Watts is also joined by the New Zealand pop sensation Broods and Los Angeles-based vocalist Saro on the new number.

Recorded across three continents, Flight Facilities’ striking new tune soars in its instrumental contributions and sonic occupancy. The duo has echoed a gorgeous sentiment that follows in the footsteps of their seminal “Clair de Lune,” although, the heightened sonic strength and thumping bassline of the new track also owes its thanks to a plentiful assortment of acts.

Additional contributors on “Stranded” include instrumental contributions from Touch Sensitive, the classical pianist Piers Lane, and Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa. Grammy-winning producers Eric J Dubowsky — who’s worked with Flume, Chet Faker, Odesza — as well as Davide Rossi — Coldplay, Röyksopp — also aided in the culmination of the enveloping number.

“Stranded” comes complete with an inexplicably beautiful visual pairing. The video was shot in a decommissioned prison in Sydney, Australia and created by the award-winning Australian director Tom Noakes.

While it remains unclear as to whether Flight Facilities has envisioned a further return, a number with an enveloping sonic occupancy like “Stranded” will surely hold listeners over until that moment arrives.
