Good Morning Mix – Flight Facilities for ‘triple j Mix Up Exclusives’: 1972-1982

History lesson + smooth house edits of classic tracks = the first installment of Flight Facilities’ four mixes from their residency on Australian radio show triple j back in October. These four mixes required an astounding amount of research to compile — each recounts a decade worth of music in a one hour mix in the order in which they were released. To make things even more difficult for themselves, Flight Facilities also highlighted all of the major historical events that occurred during this time (paired perfectly to the appropriate musical accompaniment). According to their blog post about this process, they literally recorded the clips used from YouTube on Garageband and then into Ableton. This week, they were finally able to release the first of these four mixes on Soundcloud. Enjoy and check out the tracklist below. If you’re feeling extra academic, you can even try to name all of the historical events referenced.
