Flight Facilities have been touring around Australia following the release of their single 'I Didn’t Believe' featuring Elizabeth Rose. They have been touring nationally and played to their home crowd on Saturday at a sold out Oxford Art Factory.
A sold out show at the Corner Hotel featuring Flight Facilities, Elizabeth Rose and Movement managed to make a little bit of room for Julian Fernandes to try to capture the magic.
It doesn't get much better than spending your Sunday evening watching the sun fall on Sydney from the middle of the harbour. When it’s a floating Mexican Carnivale too, well you’re on to a winner!
This new one from Flight Facilities will definitely get you moving. The production of this song took around two years, and features the beautiful vocals of DJ and vocalist Elizabeth Rose, singing such an infectious melody.

This week: Sam Sparro gives producers an opportunity to remix his music, an opportunity to educate yourself to get into DIY audience expansion, and a bunch of Australian artists grab a heap of grants to tour around Australia and provide workshops.

THE 2012 J AWARDS - FULL LIST OF NOMINEES
AUSTRALIAN ALBUM OF THE YEAR
In the column this week: more awards of the triple j kind, Psy remains at the top (when will it end?), and classical musicians get an opportunity at to head to Austria.
With the return of Harbourlife comes the announcement of a carefully curated line up, courtesy of Fuzzy. This morning, we can officially provide the first round of artists set to play the festival in Sydney this December, the line up headed by 2manyDJs!
There are only a handful of Australian festivals that can arouse the kind of excitement that always surrounds Fuzzy’s Field Day, without a doubt the biggest New Year ’s Day celebration in Sydney, always bringing quality line-ups to our shores.
Two of the hottest properties in dance music, Calvin Harris and Example have joined French electro-maestros Justice on the Field Day 2012 line-up. Sydney’s best New Year’s Day party is further enhanced by the dubstep stylings of Modestep and a solid squadron of local stars including Flight Facilities, The Aston Shuffle , Cloud Control and New Navy.
The same old argument comes up again and again; have we reached festival oversaturation? The promoters of Canberra's mainstay Stonefest released this earlier today:
We are excited to announce Flight Facilities Australian DJ Club tour this October and November presented in full by Triple j, Pedestrian & Everguide. Having finally released their second single, Foreign Language (feat. Jess), Flight Facilities are set to return from Europe, digest the schnitzels and baguettes and embark upon a tour of Australia.
From the masterminds who created the song that came 19th in Triple J's Hottest 100 2010, “Crave You”, comes a new upbeat party anthem. “Foreign Language”, by Flight Facilities, is an extremely catchy and feel-good song. It has an almost retro feel; it sounds like it belongs in the '80s, in the best way possible. The vocals are sung perfectly by Jess Higgs, who is definitely a singer to watch out for.
