About Flight Facilities
Their name has nothing to do with aeronautical engineering, aerospace or manned aircraft of any kind. But the career of Australian-based production duo Flight Facilities has certainly taken off (pardon the pun).
You may have heard of these guys before, perhaps under the name Hugo & Jimmy. That would be Hugo Stuart Gruzman and James "Jimmy" Nathan Lyell, who made a name for themselves working songs for other artists before they actually began crafting their own material. Practice undoubtedly made perfect when they churned out "Crave You," which served as their first original song and first big hit. Featuring vocalist Giselle Roselli, the track climbed to No. 19 in the Triple J Hottest 100 back in 2010, and a different version was featured on MTV's partnered website Ourstage through American rapper The Kid Bilal as a remix called "She Craves Me."
By the time Flight Facilities commenced their first tour, playing Australian nightclubs and more than a smattering of global hot spots, their popularity had soared. They produced five other original tracks behind "Crave You," including "Foreign Language," "With You," "Claire De Lune," "I Didn't Believe" and the oxymoronic and madly uptempo "Stand Still." Their YouTube page has millions of views, and the guys gained a rep for working their songs into short films instead of standard videos.
Flight Facilities spent 2013 touring as part of Triple J's House Party Tour, donning aviator jackets, flying goggles and caps onstage. Their remix "Shine A Light" found a mainstream audience in 2013 when it was featured in the video game "Grand Theft Auto V," and the duo is currently in the midst of a long-awaited European tour that kicked off April 26th in Dublin and wraps May 8th in Dublin.
