Aeroplane are a Belgium based DJ, production and remix team. Both founding members are of Italian descent. The original line up consisted of Vito De Luca and Stephan Fasano. However in Summer 2010 the band split with De Luca in control of the Aeroplane name and Fasano going by the moniker "The Magician". Of the Split De Luca had this to say

There are worse things in life! Stephen's gonna do music on his own, I'm gonna do music on my own. I’m the studio guy, he was more the DJ so when the music became more important, the more I was alone in the studio. The future of Aeroplane was this album and I wrote it and played every instrument.”[citation needed]

As well as producing their own tracks the duo have also provided remixed artists such as Sebastien Tellier, Grace Jones, and Friendly Fires.

Musical Style[edit]

Aeroplanes musical style when DJing and their own productions and remixes are categorized as Balearic beat, Cosmic and Italo Disco. Characterized by low BPM (105) with warm summer vibes.

History[edit]

Aeroplane are perhaps most well recognised for their remix of the Friendly Fires tune "Paris" with its heavy synth sound and Au Revoir Simone's etherial voice layered over the top. The remix finishing higher in many end of year polls than the original. Continuing from this success they went on to record a cover mount CD for April 2009's Mixmag magazine. In summer 2010 the duo were chosen to play BBC Radio 1's 500th Essential Mix.
