BE - Eskimo Rec.
Today’s electronic dance culture is due for a melodic transcendence from the shadowy, industrial electro that has been hammering away at the scene. As dance floors begin to buckle under such weighty beats, the Belgium (Brussels)-based Vito Deluca aka Aeroplane is dedicated to elevating his fans toward a higher musical space undefined by standardized genres. Aeroplane reach for freedom from constraints of predictability, weaving currents of psychedelic guitars, pop keys, disco beats, catchy bass lines and melancholic waves into a singular connection of modern beat-driven music.
At the controls of Aeroplane is Vito Deluca, a musician whose experience gives life and emotion to the music. Vito brings with him a producer background that pulsates the hands and heart of Aeroplane. His sound and purpose is channelling appreciation from among the biggest DJs and producers around, and the 2007 release of the first 12” entitled “Caramellas/Aeroplane” (Eskimo Recordings) has generated a jet stream of increasing momentum. Subsequent releases have kept the ring tones looping with remix requests from artists like Cobra Dukes, Das Pop, Lindström, Cut Copy, Grace Jones, MGMT, Bloc Party, and Friendly Fires. Projects like these reinforce the integration of electronic music into the omnipresent indie scene. Blends of Cosmic Nu Disco, Psychedelic, Balearic, Emo, etc. are forming a new era of musical hybrids, and explorations are officially under way. After all, machines are human too…
Aeroplane’s orbit originated from an unlikely dot on the globe called Wallonia, in the southern French part of Belgium. Former member Stephen’s ravenous musical addiction led him to a record pusher named Vito, whose shop became the launch point for their combined vision. As a duo, they fuel up on every ray of light that breaks through their similar backgrounds. Of mutual Italian descent, both were born and raised amid the smoky gray of the industrial Brussels suburbs. Now, it’s Vito that makes music that dissolve those clouds and celebrates a cosmic hope they’ve carried with them when still being a duo.
