I’m dying to get my hands on Flight Facilities forthcoming track “With You” featuring Grovesnor. I watched the 30 second teaser for it, and I was just wishing I could speed up time to the May 14th release of the track on Future Classic Records. But in the meantime, I at least can rock out to perhaps one of the best mixtapes I’ve heard in quite some time, 37,000 ft.
Sometimes I wish I actually dated guys that believed in 80s romance and the art of making mixtapes. Of course, it’s not going to be an actual tape, but a cool CD is still nice here and there. I’ve actually made a few mixtapes for exes I’ve dated in the past, but I myself have never gotten one from anyone else. :( Yet, if anyone were ever going to give me a mixtape, I would honestly want it to be as epic as 37,ooo ft. The track listing is impeccable! If someone would have given me this mixtape at a gift, I would have probably fallen head over heels for them. I’m serious, this mixtape speaks to my soul!
The mixtape came out a little less than a year ago, but it’s still oh so timeless. If you haven’t noticed by now, this is like my 3rd or 4th time blogging about Flight Facilities. I’m a huge fan of Flight Facilities, and I always knew that there music taste was probably insane. So it’s nice to listen to 37,000 ft and get a sense of what inspires the duo to make epic tunes.
The mixtape does a nice job of bringing together electro pop, disco bravado, snazzy electro grooves, and that hint of pulsating house beats. The mixtape starts off with one of my favorite Talking Heads songs,”This Must Be The Place.”Following the first track, the mixtape is a non-stop show of just epic tunes that are essential to creating the perfect soundtrack of life.
Oh, and did I mention that this mixtape is a free download? Well, it is. So download it! Don’t miss out on the seamless mixing and snazzy tunes that will brighten up your day. This mixtape is a most for EDM lovers who enjoy disco, electro pop, dance, and hints of house. You need 37,000 ft in your life. I know I do.
