Flight Facilities

Here’s an epic mix by the Australian duo Flight Facilities for the triple j, featuring samples of major events in history, original songs used to make the edits, modern day songs that used the samples, unlisted cuts of other songs that  the duo snuck in. Everything is chronologically ordered between 1972 and 1982. I’ve been listening to this set the whole morning and it feels so good to revisit all these epic tunes. If you’re a disco lover, you must download this mix and listen to it right from the beginning to the end. Don’t you even dare to go forward and back on the player – the whole thing is just too good. If you want to know more about this mix (which is only the first installment of many more chronologically ordered mixes to come), take a look at Flight Facilities’s blog and read what they have to say about it. It’s disco time!!!

HINT: Download the mix and put it on your iPod (or watch your iTunes artwork box) for the full experience.
