Aeroplane is the Belgium-based project of Vito De Luca.
Vito De Luca aka Aeroplane, the Italian-Belgian producer, has established himself as a party-starting DJ, a remixer du jour, and a pioneer of the nu-disco and Balearica music scene. His unique “analog house” sound and distinct writing style sets him apart from the rest. In the past two years, Aeroplane has produced several HypeMachine-charting remixes, including Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie,” Mystery Skull’s “Paralyzed,” and Charli XCX’s “Boom Clap.” In the last year, Aeroplane has released two Beatport-charting EP’s, launched a new "sample-house" project called FLUSH, released an acclaimed EP with Alex Metric (as Metroplane), and collaborated with Purple Disco Machine.
Aeroplane’s debut full-length album We Can’t Fly, an in depth trip into Balearics with a large dose of AOR and Moroder-influenced disco, was released on Eskimo Recordings, PIAS and Ultra Records in 2010. Well ahead of its time, the album is an obvious precursor to many of the releases of similar genre in 2013 and 2014. In 2012, Aeroplane was selected by Pete Tong to perform the 500th “Essential Mix” which included his now world famous remix of Friendly Fires' “Paris.” As a result, Aeroplane was named one of NME’s 20 Most Groundbreaking Dance Acts in the World. Following the success of “We Can’t Fly” and the “Paris” remix, Aeroplane has released several EP’s, produced countless successful remixes, and has launched his own record label, Aeropop.
2015 was a year of new music from Aeroplane. His first EP "Let’s Get Slow," included a new song of the same title featuring a vocal performance by Benjamin Diamond of Stardust “Music Sounds Better With You” fame. His second EP "Page One Is Love,” which includes two new original songs, topped the Beatport Top 100 Indie/Nu Disco Releases and Top 100 Indie/Nu Disco charts. Aeroplane’s new side project, FLUSH, was released on Strictly Rhythm/Defected in July 2015. TraxSource named FLUSH among the Top 20 Nu Disco Artists So Far in 2015.
2016 has been a year of impressive collaborations for Aeroplane. He has released an EP with UK electronic powerhouse Alex Metric as Metroplane. Both tracks on the EP – “Mr. E” and “Over Me” have gained support from Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Triple J, Dancing Astronaut, and MixMag. This Summer, Aeroplane will release a track with Purple Disco Machine before touring with Alex Metric in the US.
Aeroplane continues to tour all over the world. Notably, he performed at Made in America 2015, TomorrowWorld 2015, NOS Alive Festival 2015, Space Ibiza Resident DJ Summer 2015, and Coachella 2014 during successful North American and European tours, and will touch every continent except for Antarctica this year alone.
