History[edit]

Flight Facilities are a duo, Hugo Gruzman and James Lyell, which first began mixing various songs by other artists in 2009 in Sydney.[1] They have reworked Bag Raiders, Toecutter and Sneaky Sound System.[2][1] Their first original song, "Crave You" featuring Giselle Rosselli, received considerable airtime in Australia on the alternative music radio station Triple J in 2010.[1][3] It was co-written by Guzman, Lyell and Rosselli after the duo contacted the vocalist to provide an original track for a compilation album by their label Bang Gang.[1][4] In July 2010 Flight Facilities commenced their first tour, Maiden Voyage.[1] They played at various Australian nightclubs: Elsewhere on The Gold Coast, Empire in Brisbane, Limbo in Adelaide, and Adult Disco in Sydney before going to Japan to play at Onzieme in Osaka, and Le Baron in Tokyo.[5] "Crave You" was listed at No. 19 in the Triple J Hottest 100, 2010 and was featured as the soundtrack to Myer's 2010 Spring Racing Carnival television commercial campaign.[6]

In 2011, "Foreign Language" won a J-Award for music video,[7] and appeared as number 72 in the Triple J Hottest 100, 2011.[8] In February that year while performing as Hugo & Jimmy in Jakarta, Indonesia, the duo claimed to be from Trinidad and Tobago.[2][9][10] They have jokingly told journalists the same thing and that they are Calvin Harris.[11]

In 2012, "Clair de Lune" appeared as number 17 in the Triple J Hottest 100, 2012.[12]

In 2013, KCRW invited Flight Facilties to SXSW and headlined their home countries Falls Festival and Southbound Festivals (alongside The Roots, !!!, MGMT, Bonobo and Grizzly Bear). In 2014 they were asked to play one of the worlds biggest festivals, Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Palm Springs where they played to 8000 plus people each day.

The C90s track "Shine A Light" (Flight Facilities remix), gained mainstream attention in 2013 when featured in the popular video game Grand Theft Auto V, created by Rockstar Games.
