The following could easily be considered as being lazy recycling of old posts. It’s actually just a little something to keep me motivated in replacing the archives and picking out stuff that I feel still holds up. I will be trying to make this a weekly thing.

Weird fact: For a considerable amount of time Flight Facilities wanted their identities kept secret. We wrote that M.Bison was a member (with permission, I might add) and people honestly believed it without checking who M.Bison is. Some artists linked the phoney bio that was written to the initial success of Flight Facilities (mystery only creates further hype etc), which is bullshit, they had a good song and a sense of humour. That goes a long way.

Comment – The Swedish electronic trio were obscenely young when they made this (18/19?) and at the same time, musically, very mature. This might not be for everyone, but, I still really rate this, it has a hypnotic quality about it. Boerd of Stay Ali has recently released an album.

Comment – Mighty Mouse is responsible for some of the best
Nu-Disco remixes ever, this is one of those. Be sure to check the vocal version of this too.

Comment – Taken from a Aeroplane mixtape so old that it is from the era of when Aeroplane were still duo. I really enjoyed how they sneaked in some pretty interesting tracks like this cover of The Rolling Stones “Under My Thumb”, those mixtapes had a real nice balance of a new and old going on.
