I’m sure if you’re anything like me you have relentlessly described house music to your parents as being the modern day equivalent to classical music. After disagreeing they tend to take the argument further, stating electronic artists are nothing compared to the rock ‘classics’ of the seventies. It’s a battle I’ve nearly given up on, until stumbling across the perfect ammo. Flight Facilities, the famed Australian duo, known best for twisting seventies classics into modern day nu-disco, have re-visited Walter Murphy’s 1976 Saturday Night Fever classic “A Fifth of Beethoven,” one of the most influential tracks of the disco-era. Music connoisseurs will recognize passages from the first movement of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. If you find yourself wanting more funky renditions that connect generations of music lovers alike check out the rest of Flight Facilities’ “Triple j Mix Up Exclusives 1972-1982”
