The summer parties are coming and when it’s time to pick the perfect song, this smooth banger is definitely one to impress the guests. Harking back to 90s Detroit house and West Coast hip-hop, Lights Up is one of those dance tracks that sound retro and modern at the same time. The song is a collaboration between the Australian production duo Flight Facilities and West Coast rapper Channel Tres. With a pulsating synth bassline and understated keys supporting the rapper’s smooth vocals, the song becomes a throbbing mantra. Lights Up is the first track to be released in over a year from these underground DJs, who have been working together for over a decade, creating timeless, genre-defying classics drenched in a sense of nostalgia. The quality of this new track is a good sign for things to come.
