First Spin: The Week’s Best New Dance Tracks From Flight Facility & Channel Tres, Godlands & More

Flight Facilities feat. Channel Tres, “Lights Up”

Once again demonstrating his position as one of the most essential collaborators (and standalone voices) in current dance music, Channel Tres saunters onto “Lights Up” — his new collaborative single with Flight Facilities — and turns the track on a low simmer that heats up into a delicious all-out disco swirl. While the strings pay homage to legendary haunts like Paradise Garage, the venerable Aussie duo also layer up the synth and kick drum, adding, they say in a statement “some 90’s and 00’s elements to give the song its own character” and prevent it entry from the derivative zone. Meanwhile, Tres’ insistent refrain of “got the whole city blowin’ up” demonstrates, as Flight Facilities continue in their statement, that “his voice has a magical ability to make songs that are made for strutting.” Turn this one up and do your own sashay into the clubscape of your mind. — KATIE BAIN
