When the year 00’s started we had Daft Punk as some kind of pioneers in the disco funk revival era, along with Jamiroquai, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Kylie Minogue and some other great artists; since then the niu disco sound stayed among us.
With this album Dua Lipa explores the niu disco sound that is now, 20 years later, in the mainstream again: the album starts with Future Nostalgia, a song that could be easily be confused with some tune from Jamiroquai. It continues with Don’t Start Now, a song that sounds like the calvin harris harris tunes back then when he was still disco, a great tune i have to say! Hallucinate is the best song in this album, it has all the right niu disco sounds in it, it will really make you dance.
After the big hit with its first album “By Your Side”, Breakbot retiro de urned 4 years later, now as a French House Superstar, joined with his friend Irfane, with this album called “Still Waters”. The album starts with his best tune “Back For More” that has the typical sound of breakbot, an uplifting niu disco tune perfect for a night.
“Arrested” is a slower disco track, but sounds great if you are driving to the beach, still has the classic breakbot sound that makes you move, joined with the voice of Yasmin and Irfane, it is great!
“All it Takes” has the danceable disco sound back in it, after a few so -so tunes, an easy listening tune, i can hear it in a remixed version that can take this version to another level.
“Wet Dream” is an interesting piece of music that takes you into a pool day, you can hear kids playing around, background voices, splashes and the piano sound from breakbot, it is great! just too short.
Well those are the best tracks for me, i really loved more its first album, but this is a good one too.
If you want a groovy shaky friday, something to dance at your apartment, to make a party, to cheer up, nothing better than this amazing mixtape from Flight Facilities!

The first album from Breakbot: By Your Side is now a 2000’s classic because it is filled with what was denominated as the Disco revival, Niu Disco and French House. Since Daft Punk we didn’t have such quality in the production on what is called a soft house music, or something nearest to beach house. For me, this album is a masterpiece and it has established Breakbot as a new ‘god like’ in the french disco house scene, with songs like “One out of Two”, “Fantasy”, “By Your Side Pt. 2” and “Baby I’m Yours”, you will have a nice sunny sunday.
If there is one thing that i love about Flight Facilities is the ability that they have to create a really chilled mixtape, that when you listen to it you are transported to a day at the beach with sunny vibes.
This mixtape is no exception to that. Filled with beach house, you will enjoy this if you want to chill.
