Aeroplane has been under the spotlight since the release of his debut album, We Can’t Fly in 2010. Originally a duo (comprised of Vito De Luca & Stephen Fasano), Aeroplane gained tremendous amounts of buzz with their spacious cosmic disco remixes of Grace Jones (William’s Blood), and Friendly Fires (Paris). Considered a leader in the nu-disco and Balearica scene, Aeroplane’s records demonstrate a passion for soulful disco and early ’80s electronica.
Aeroplane has now become a one-man operation and flying solo has generated nothing but success for De Luca (Fasano, on the other hand, has found success as The Magician). A classically trained musical artist and songwriter, De Luca goes against the grain of other DJs by refusing to be a slave to BPMs and other traditional dancefloor pressures. He creates brilliant, dazzling remixes that remain mix-friendly despite being complete productions that stand well on their own. He has also released a compilation titled In Flight Entertainment earlier this year.
We have been fans of Aeroplane for years and can’t wait to board his next flight when it arrives at Highline Ballroom next month. Supporting Aeroplane will be Fixed NYC, DJs JDH & Dave P, as well as Catz ‘n Dogz. Bring a few friends and Occupy with us for a night of cosmic-disco dancing. Let us know if you can attend via the comments below or on our Facebook Event Page. And make sure to check out the latest edition of Aeroplane’s monthly mixes.
