FLIGHT FACILITIES – CLAIR DE LUNE FEAT. CHRISTINE HOBURG (PRINS THOMAS DISKOMIKS)
Wow, one day off from this blogging lark and it’s amazing how much new music there is to catch up on. Expect many posts today people. Prins Thomas has been a busy little Norwegian of late, dropping remiks’s left right and centre. This flip of Flight Facilities’ ‘Clair De Lune’ oozes quality, from the twinkling music box, enveloping strings and perfect treatment of the vocal through to his trademark cosmic disco roll. That bassline is just x-rated funkiness. It’s perhaps more poppy than some of his recent work (thanks mainly to that vocal,) but it’s got that perfect balance with dancier elements the likes of which Royksopp perfected all those years back. Thomas certainly doesn’t deviate too far from his style but he does what he does with such finesse it’s hard not to love it.
