TSM aka This Soft Machine remix Flight Facilities’ “Clair De Lune” featuring Christine Hoberg.
Henri (Henrietta Tiefenthaler) was born in London, but is now based in LA, where her versatility is beginning to attract serious attention; DJing, producing and singing on her own dance/pop productions.
Following on from the success of her ‘It’s like This, It’s Like That EP,’ Henri returns with an emotive remix of ‘Two Bodies (Feat. Emma Louise)’ by Australian duo, Flight Facilities.
The original, which features breathy vocals from Emma Louise, is the dance/pop production we have come to associate with Flight Facilities. Henri has pushed the boundaries of the track one step further; chopping up and looping snippets of Louise’s vocals, while adding lush strings and a gorgeous piano interlude to the mix.
Henri’s remix will be sure reignite your nostalgia for 90’s-inspired piano house beats. Perfect in both live and intimate settings, have a sweet euphoric moment and take yourself back to Bora Bora beach in Ibiza.
The remix is being released in anticipation of Henri’s second single, ‘Only Love Will Take Me There’; a brooding underground heroin house track, coming out on Monstertooth Records in November. It will include remixes and a b-side featuring an emotionally charged, gushing string arrangement by Dan Heath (Lana Del Rey). Out on September 15th via Win Music/Glassnote.
Flight Facilities unveiled the video for their single “Down To Earth”, featuring choreography from legendary Vincent Paterson. “Down To Earth”, featuring vocals from Dennis Dowlut, aka Deutsch Duke, is a “tribute to artists like Mylo and Stardust”, taken from the pair’s great 2014 debut album of the same name, out now via Future Classic/Glassnote Records. Video directed by Rhett Wade-Ferrell. Starring Sam Rockwell.
Flight Facilities’ “Two Bodies” features the vocal talents of Emma Louise and has been transformed by German king of weird and wonderful techno, Robag Whrume. His ‘Endera Wassaby’ remix is a frankly beautiful composition and follows Robag’s winning formula. He slices and dices the track and adds a whole new level of depth by combining utterly serene synths with abrasive yet magical tones.
“People – even if they haven’t heard of us – think we’re at least reasonably credible. We’re not Radiohead… but we’re not some crazy dubstep band, either. More often than not, people will take that chance with us,” explain the Flight Facilities boys. On Down to Earth, “we’ve basically written songs with at least one person in every continent.” (spotify link)
