We’re the October Residents for triple j Mix Up EXCLUSIVES!

October 2nd, 2012 — 4:26pm

For those of you who have no idea what that means, it means:

“Whoa, hell must be freezing over, 4 mixtapes from Flight Facilities in a month!?”

Now prepare yourselves because this is going to be a long post.

If you’re not the reading type, just back out now. We won’t be offended. However if you appreciate music, history and music history you may want to read this.

-

So back in about late April/early May, we agreed to be the triple j Mix Up EXCLUSIVES residents. We were offered September or October.

We chose October, knowing the more time we had, the better. “Why?” We definitely didn’t hear you ask. Well we’ll tell you why!

-

triple j required 4 mixes. Each 1 hour long.

We figured we could have put together 4 mixes of music we loved, but by the fourth one, we’d be scraping the barrel.

We’re pretty picky about which music we use, hence why we only do 1 or 2 tapes a year… so doing 4 mixes in one month had to be special.

-

We decided to make things as hard as we could for ourselves while adding some novelty to the project. We had such a good response to our Paris Social Club 70s set and chose to follow that lead.

-

So here it is:

4 mixes, 4 decades of music, in the order in which it came out.

Each set represents the music of 10 years and moves chronologically through time.

The first mix is 1972 – 1982.

The second, 1982 – 1992

Third, 1992 – 2002

And lastly, 2002 – 2012

-

THE FIRST 3

What sort of research did this require? Well, firstly it demanded the reading of 30 years worth of music charts. Cross referencing 3 different charts (100 songs in each chart – 300 songs per year – 9000 song names in total) with Wikipedia release dates. We also read Wikipedia Music pages for individual years, singles and looked at YouTube compilations too. We also checked the dates on old songs we loved that sat in our iTunes.

-

Charts Searching

Wikipedia Singles

Wikipedia Music for specific years

iTunes Sorting

-

THE FOURTH

The 2002 – 2012 mix required a flick through the old record collection, checking the dates on the records, a cross reference with discogs, a LONG browse through iTunes and a dusting of our greatest dance floor memories both in front of, and behind the decks.

-

-

-

Sorting Process

-

Discogs Searching

-

BUT HERE’S WHERE THINGS GET RIDICULOUS…

We also decided “Hey, let’s make this even harder than it needs to be”, so we read through 40 years of Wikipedia and found the major events in history. Things like the Nixon Watergate scandal in the 70′s, the toppling of the Berlin wall in the 80′s, the end of apartheid in Africa in the 90′s, the capture and conviction of Saddam Hussein in the 00′s and A LOT more.

-

Wikipedia Major Events of Each Year

-

THE EDUCATIONAL DOCUMENT OF DEATH

Once we had these major events, we copied them into text documents along with YouTube URLs that correlated to these major events. We’re not kidding when we tell you that the image below is a screen shot of the actual documents with tracklistings, options, URLs, time markers and alternatives for videos.

-

-

YOUTUBIN

We then recorded the snippets of audio from the YouTube videos into Garageband (and yes, we know you can just download the audio but we were ripping from videos that were sometimes an hour or more long). We have watched literally days worth of historical YouTube footage.

YouTube audio samples

Garageband Samples

-

INTO ABLETON

Once we bounced it from there, we sat the audio in the project on top of songs that were in the music charts at that particular point in history.

-

-

IN SHORT…

Basically, you can hear what people were listening to when the major events of  the world occurred. Alongside all these tunes are some exclusive modern day edits from the likes of Tim Fuchs, Rocco Raimundo. Some exclusive edits from us (plus even a few bootlegs), and of course, just to keep those old mixes a little bit modern, a bunch of classic edits from greats like Todd Terje, The Revenge, In Flagranti and more.

-

We had no idea how long and complicated an idea this would be. In fact, we’d go as far as to say it was a terrible idea to undertake given the unexpected level of research that was required (unbeknownst to us at the time).

We weren’t overly strict about the release dates of the music. Most of the songs are done in 1 year blocks (a song released in January 1986 may appear after a song in December 1986 – so sue us!).  We’re sure a couple of you higher-brow-than-thou listeners will be able to catch us out on a few occasions. We were off by about a year on one or two tracks every now and then (usually depending on release date vs. charting date vs. album release). You’ll have to forgive us for those indiscrepancies. But matching the tempo as well as the history was a link that one would usually never, logically, have to establish while doing a freakin’ mixtape. Anyway, there you have it. That’s what we’ve been working on since May as well as several other singles, remixes and tours.

-

Prepare yourselves triple j listeners, and of course listeners of the world. We’re taking you on a musical history lesson of the last 40 years.

Each mix will air on Saturday nights throughout October, at 9pm Sydney, Australia time. So bust out those world clocks everybody, because you can listen to them live online right here:

http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/media/listen.htm

INTERNATIONAL LIVE LISTENING TIMES:

New York: 7am Saturday Morning
Los Angeles: 4am Saturday Morning :-/
London: 12 Midday Saturday
Paris: 1pm Saturday

(we’ll be posting facebook and twitter updates close to airing times to give everyone a chance to tune in)

END

NOTE: We’ll be posting these mixes to our Soundcloud for free download eventually but not until triple j’s approval in, at earliest, November. We’re very excited to share them with you – but for now, stream them from the triple j website :)

  7. admin

    They will eventually be on our soundcloud. But because they’re exclusive, they won’t for a little while.

  8. Cathie

    Hey Trish, we can’t wait to hear how you feel about all four mixes. We made it with people who have lived these years in mind. We hope we do the past some justice :)

  13. Katherine

    You guys have somehow gained even more respect from me than before. I will be hailing on my knees at your Toronto show chanting ‘We are not worthy!’.

    I appreciate all the work you put into the triplej mixes. So thank you.

    i’m getting married next year and would love to play these mixes at our wedding to bring all ages on the floor! What a wedding it would be! Can they be ripped off soundcloud or will you be making them purchasable???

  17. Jodie

    Ahhh! Was driving home from work, drove straight passed my house just so I could hear this remix. I have to have all of this music, where can I get it?????? Best mixed tape ever.

  18. admin

    FLIGHT FACILITIES: Hey everyone, we’re going to make these mixes available for download on Soundcloud as soon as we can. We have to wait til we get triple j’s approval after October. We really appreciate all your feedback. It’s so nice to know that we’ve managed to capture some important moments in your musical lives. We hope you all enjoy a little hip hop in the 92-02 mix next week :)

  19. Dave

    Forest (my four year old boy) and I were soul training last sunday morning, this sunday not so much, but wait, itha jacko, new order…..mmm, we boys better get out of the corner and join the girls around the handbag. This old dog is loving these mixes, and yes guys, this is how you do put a mixed tape together – it has to be themed – loving the news clips, I did similar reading bits of 50 shades of between tracks at a 40th. Who was that guys that came on stage and did a reading and then left? party on.

    Guys.. These mixes were absolutely incredible. The amount of effort gone in to the mixes is apparent and seeing this blog post shows how much time and effort went in to producing the mixes.

    You should be very proud of your art.

    Looking forward to grabbing a copy from soundcloud when they are available.

  26. Hogan8r

    Well its November and I’m dying to hear these mixes. Couldn’t wake up at 7 am on a weekend b/c I drink too much. Tell Triple J to stop delaying my future flights!

  27. Josh

    Awesome mix!

  37. roberta

  38. James

    I wish I may I wish I might listen to the 80s mix sometime in the new year… that didn’t rhyme. oh well.

  39. Sarah

    I’ve spent the better part of today trying to re-listen to the mash up from triple j last night…..And the other three I have not yet heard! Where can I stream your decade mix tapes from? You may just be my new faves. You pretty much had every single beloved song from that decade in the mash up last night. Loved loved loved it!

  40. Firstweekofjan!?

    Is there a way I can set up some sort of notification for when it comes out?

  41. admin

    You can follow us on Soundcloud if you like? Otherwise just like our facebook page and you’ll know as soon as it goes online there too. We’ll be putting up one a month for 4 months. Plus some other treats from the mixes in between.

  42. Christa

    Your 72 to 82 mixup on Triple J was pure gold. It was dripping with funk and deep grooves. Loved it! Couldn’t stop dancing!

    When will it be available to download? :)

  43. Henrinyc

    Hi guys,
    I am in awe. The mixes themselves are smart, unexpected and quite a bit brilliant. But the work you’ve put into putting it all together also comes through and makes them quite special. The 1982-1992 mix is my favourite at the moment. I was a kid during the 80s and you seem to have picked up the music and feeling of that decade perfectly. Plus that mix of Janet Jackson, RIck Astley, Madonna – brilliant. I love your work and these mixes are just awesome. Quite simply ace!

    Sometimes I lie in bed with my eyes closed and listen to Clair De Lune on repeat, wondering if my dreams will ever become reality.

    Sometimes I play these mixes while I’m working and close my eyes, and am transported into the decades. And I regain faith.

    Your music and mixes have truly had a positive impact on my life, and gotten me through some shitty times. Thank you.

    Hi there,

    I can’t seem to see it on soundcloud.

    Kind Regards,
