Aeroplane to play Ministry of Sound
Aeroplane is landing in a town near you. Well … at least if you live in London, Istanbul or San Diego.
There are three big dates on Vito De Luca's calendar so far in 2015, and one includes a stop at the Ministry of Sound in the United Kingdom on February 14. What a way to spend Valentine's Day! The London superclub relaunched in 2014 with a new-look courtyard, a new VIP suite and viewing gallery and two new balconies overlooking the 103 bar and The Box. The venue's technology was also updated, including fresh drivers for the sound system.
Joining Aeroplane for the February date will be Cassius and Clara 3000.
At Babylon the venue has been touting Aeroplane's appearance for months, announcing on its website the one-man project is coming to "corrode the dance floor ". He'll play there with opening act Fattish on in support. Aeroplane won't take center stage until 11:30 p.m., and Fattish will follow again in the after-party.
Finally, Aeroplane will be part of a massive CRSSD lineup that will include Maceo Plex, Jamie Jones, Justin Martin, Pete Tong, Empire of the Sun, Seth Troxler, Pleasure State, Simian Mobile Disco, Odesza and many more.
The CRSSD festival is 21+ and will be held at San Diego's Waterfront Park. Tickets have been on sale since January 2nd.
Aeroplane made a name for itself as one of the best remix teams on the nu-disco scene. But just as quickly, the duo was down to one man , Vito De Luca, and the solo act has bee working out just fine.
De Luca, as it turns out, has always been one to think big. He originally formed Aeroplane with Belgian DJ Stephen Fasano, but lost that half of the duo just a few weeks before the release of their first album. Unfortunate? Maybe. But for De Luca, it also afforded him the opportunity to play all of the music and trust his own instincts and abilities.
While De Luca still considers himself a composer, not a producer, he wears many hats. With each remix, for example, he uses only the a cappella and writes an entirely new piece of music around it. But he also relies on DJ gigs and licensing to make a living. It's the gigs, especially, where the interest has been huge. He was chosen as the 500th Essential Mixer on the music show called "Essential Mix" broadcast by different DJs on BBC Radio 1, and even a peek at his calendar of upcoming tour dates would leave you exhausted.
Aeroplane released the album "We Can't Fly" in September 2010. It consisted of pop songs written and performed by De Luca, along with guest vocals from a number of other artists like Au Revoir Simone and Sky Ferreira. It was followed by the sophomore effort "In Flight Entertainment" in 2011.
