If you are looking for something completely out of the ordinary to listen to for the next three hours, there may be no better way to spend your time than listening to Flight Facilities “The Decades” mix. This mix may be way outside of a lot of people’s comfort zones but anyone with a set of ears and a love for all things musical will undoubtedly revel in this mixtape. We featured the first decade mix back in January, but here are all three decades in one neat little package. Aired on the triple j radio station in Australia, “The Decades” takes listeners on a sonic journey through 3 decades of music and sound bites, from 1972 to 2002.
Flight Facilities did more than just their due diligence here; they spent weeks curating the music and the samples, researching historic events and the music charts of each year to put together a historical and musical snapshot of the last four decades.
