Australian electronic duo Flight Facilities returns with their first new solo music in two years. “Trouble,” their new single featuring longtime friend and collaborator Owl Eyes, is out now via the treasured label Future Classic. 

A trip to the altar of 2000s dance music, “Trouble” was born during the pair’s 2023 run of Ibiza DJ sets when late nights (sometimes) evolved into missed flights. Be it the Chaka Khan hook of Stardust’s “Music Sounds Better With You,” the emotionally evocative collaboration that became Todd Terry’s edit of Everything But The Girl’s “Missing,” or the mirrorballed drumroll of Spiller’s “Groovejet,” “Trouble” is the collision of magical moments from a period that gave warm and ecstatic music for fans to escape into, with the inimitable freshness of a Flight Facilities anthem.

Following the success of their critically acclaimed 2021 sophomore album FOREVER, the new single marks a return to the duo’s roots as they extract the essence of Sydney’s club scene in the mid-to-late 2000s, where they met and played across the thriving scene in the midst of a DJ renaissance. Flight Facilities’ upcoming shows will be centred around filling dance floors as the duo play both intimate clubs and massive stages The Trouble Tour will begin with Miami Music Week parties alongside Claptone and Purple Disco Machine and conclude at Coachella with their debut at the heralded Yuma Tent stage across both weekends. The tour will also hit New York City, Denver, Chicago, Toronto, Mexico City, and more. 

Trouble, in many ways, is a return to our origins in taste, influence and collaboration. Working with Owl Eyes and Bag Raiders’ Jack Glass to reference some turn-of-the-century dance-pop was such a natural fit. We’ve always had a spatial nostalgia for the 2000s, so any excuse to inject its sound into today is one we’ll take.”    — Flight Facilities

Having worked together for over a decade, Flight Facilities have refined their styles and perfected the art of creating genre-defying classics. Through their Decades Mixes and massive record collection, which came to life during their expansive, sold-out The Decades Tour last year, they’ve devoted themselves as dancefloor scholars. The result takes listeners on unsuspecting journeys through musical history to places and times they may have never visited, but that feel familiar nonetheless. Flight Facilities’ music bridges the gap between the vast spectrum of music enthusiasts and, in turn, creates a global community that comes together and finds a connection both on the dancefloor and off. 

Since originating in 2008 in Sydney, Australia, Flight Facilities, across two albums and a myriad of beloved singles, has amassed over 1.5 billion streams across DSPs and YouTube. They’ve circled the globe as both maestros behind the decks and as a live band, performing for over one million fans worldwide over the course of their career, and have worked alongside artists like Kylie Minogue, DRAMA, Channel Tres, Aloe Blacc, and Reggie Watts.
