Early in 2012, the lads from Flight Facilities told me about a great concept for their Triple J Mix Up residency that was happening later in the year, and had a few tracks that they wanted edited.
The concept for the mixes being a history lesson, not only musically but including global events that occurred at the time the music was released.
They asked me if I wanted to work on one for them, and I couldn't go past choosing Lou Reed's 'Walk On The Wild Side'.
The mixes were aired on Triple J (Australia) throughout October 2012 and since no one has ever done anything like this before,
and due to the incredible track lists each mix has, they've proven to be extremely popular.
This edit was included in the first installment, which also contains edits by Tim Fuchs, Drop Out Orchestra, The Revenge, Skinny Joey,
In Flagranti, Villa and of course, Flight Facilities.
