Aeroplane (Belgium/eskimo), Rikki Newton, Steve Tamsitt, Kieron C, Guy Locke
Somewhat surprisingly, 2007’s best nu-disco record didn’t come from a bearded Norwegian, but rather two gents from Brussels in Belgium. We are, of course, talking about ‘Caramellas’ by Aeroplane, a rush-inducing midtempo beast that’s lit up the Future Classic dancefloor on so many occasions that we just needed more!
In no time Aeroplane have raced into the consciousness of discerning DJs and dancefloors from New York to Tokyo, their slo-mo chugging beats, life-affirming melodies and sweeping strings evoking more than a hint of late-night melodrama. And it’s not just the club scene that are embracing the sounds of Aeroplane… keep your ears ready for high profile remixes for chart toppers Cut Copy and MGMT that are currently floating through the ether.
With critical acclaim pouring in from DJs including Laurent Garnier, Prins Thomas, Mike Simonetti, Tim Sweeney, Joakim, Mylo, Tiga… collaborations with London singer Kathy Diamond and remixes for and by Hercules and Love Affair, Lindstrom and Low Motion Disco being released on labels like Eskimo, Prestel, Lo Recordings, Institubes and Permanent Vacation, you start to see that Aeroplane are about to take off.
Dress for aerospace travel and join us for a night of future facing cosmic disco from the world’s finest!
