Flight Facilities
Flight Facilities
Secret identities, aeronautical puns, mixtapes and releasing music in single format is what we know of Flight Facilities so far. Releasing 6 original tracks to date, 'Crave you', 'Foreign Language' 'With You', 'Clair De Lune' I Didn't Believe & most recently the uptempo 'Stand Still.' The only similarity drawn from all Flight Facilities tracks is that each features a very talented guest: Giselle Roselli, Jessica Higgs, Rob Smoughton aka Grovesnor and Christine Hoberg, Elizabeth Rose & Micky Green.

While Flight Facilities don't like to be pigeonholed by genre, they are vocal about their influences. They have drawn inspiration from acts, past and present, such as ELO, Jamiroquai, Daft Punk, Chic, Mylo and more.

Their YouTube page already has over 25 million views,. The first video is the New York-shot 'Crave You' directed by Moopjaw (Golden Filter, Neon Indian, Peaches), featuring the styling of Christian Joy (Yeah Yeah Yeah's / Karen O's costume designer). Flight Facilities' second single brings fans to a Hawaii 5-0-esque throwback by French director, Dimitri Basil, shot amongst some of Sydney's most iconic landmarks and venues. The animation for "With You" combines Astroboy, Megaman and Daft Punk-inspired anime from young animator Benjamin Drake (also known for his animated work with Gotye), and most recently, Flight Facilities worked with Foals main videographer Dave Ma to shoot the almost-8-minute short film for 'Clair De Lune' & 'Stand Still; both shot in California.

Production wise, Flight Facilities are slowly building a reputation for delivery on every remix. With a selective approach to their remixes, they have tastefully retouched the likes of Jagwar Ma, Holy Ghost!, Cut Copy, Foals, The C90s, Miike Snow, Bag Raiders, The Lowbrows, Sneaky Sound System and Toecutter. In late 2012 they tackled 4 decades of music and historical moments through four one hour mixtapes. Chronologically placing everything in order of release and time of event.. Mixmag called it 'one of the most ambitious mix series of all time,"

The journey is only just beginning; sit back, relax and enjoy your flight.
Touch Sensitive
Touch Sensitive's debut single 'Body Stop' was one of the first tracks released on Future Classic, all the way back in 2004. Cloaked in anonymity it's cosmic vibes and Italo authenticity made it a cult favourite among discerning DJ circles from East London to Brooklyn.

Re-emerging in 2006 under the Arithmatixx! pseudonym to produce a remix of (at the time) fledgling disco producer Mario Basanov it was later revealed both aliases to be the solo project of Van She co-writer and co-founding member Michael Di Francesco. Fast forward to 2012 and his third track 'Real Talk', a collaboration with Anna Lunoe, saw Touch Sensitive spend five (5!) months at the top of the Beatport indie-dance charts with what was universally recognised as one of the underground hits of the year.

2013 sees the release of his debut EP 'Show Me The Pizza Guy', previewed by LA super-producers Classixx in their mix for The Fader and Triple J they affectionally cite that "The Touch Sensitive tracks are masterfully produced and ultra-emotive. 'Pizza Guy' transports me to running the final stretch of my high school x country races in slow motion."
