Flight Facilities latest Decade DJ Mix is a music and historical document of 2012 to 2022

Avatar

The Australian dance duo Flight Facilities have released the latest episode in their Decade Mixes bringing the series up to present day.

Each mix represents a different decade and traveling chronologically through music and events from 1962 – 2022, and the latest hour takes in the years from 2012 to 2022.

With references and news footage referencing norovirus, the Boston bombing, the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Brexit, Joseph Kony, Trump, the Bataclan, COVID, theBlack Lives Matter movement and pretty much every major global event of the decade, the music and accompanying visuals are all drawn from the period.

There is music from Friendly Fires, Klangkarussell, Lorde, SBTRKT, Daft Punk, Tiga, Tame Impala, Camelphat, Bicep, Yaeji, PNAU and many more.

It was a decade best summed up by podcasts, cancel culture, fake news and memeing our way through tragedy and triumph. But was 2012-2022 any crazier than eras past, or was it that the prevalence of social media put major international events on our digital doorsteps? A Hollywood star becoming the leader of the free world? Bizarre… but it wasn’t the first time. Obscure global events just felt more tangible than ever, and we were all finally able to have our say. Communication with pop stars and major companies was instantaneous, and stardom was diluted by the ability for strangers to become a viral sensation overnight. With the advance of accessible technology came the explosion of bedroom producers like Flume, who would dictate the direction and popularity of an entire genre. At a glance, many could argue it was the death of originality in pop culture, with covers, remixes, sequels, prequels and remakes dominating the mainstream. The recent emergence of AI will either give those creative minds the resources to forge a new path into 2032, or accelerate us into repetition.”
