In just a few years, Vito De Luca, the Italian-Belgian producer behind Aeroplane, has established himself as party-starting DJ, remixer du jour -with his spacious cosmic-disco remakes of Grace Jones (William’s Blood), Friendly Fires (Paris) and Sebastien Tellier (Kilometer)- and, via his own keyboards riff-based melancholic beauties like Caramellas, or My Enemy, leader of the nu-disco and Balearica scene. Aeroplane’s debut album, We Can’t Fly, was an in-depth trip into the previously mentioned balearics with a big dose of AOR and Moroder-influenced disco, which was more a statement than an attempt to conquer dance floors, though the perfect remix cast did fill up for that job (The Krays's remix of Superstar, Breakbot's remix of " Without Lies " or Rex The Dog remix of " My Enemy ")
As a DJ, Aeroplane has never been at the mercy of traditional bpms, and being free of “the dancefloor pressure” has given Vito additional license to slow things down and look around, finding the perfect blend between club music, pop hooks, and spaced-out soundscapes. Making your ass shake more than your fist pump, as his first " In Flight Entertainment " 100% exclusive compilation demonstrates.
Touch Sensitive's debut single 'Body Stop' was one of the first tracks released on Future Classic, all the way back in 2004. Cloaked in anonymity it's cosmic vibes and Italo authenticity made it a cult favourite among discerning DJ circles from East London to Brooklyn.
Re-emerging in 2006 under the Arithmatixx! pseudonym to produce a remix of (at the time) fledgling disco producer Mario Basanov it was later revealed both aliases to be the solo project of Van She co-writer and co-founding member Michael Di Francesco. Fast forward to 2012 and his third track 'Real Talk', a collaboration with Anna Lunoe, saw Touch Sensitive spend five (5!) months at the top of the Beatport indie-dance charts with what was universally recognised as one of the underground hits of the year.
2013 sees the release of his debut EP 'Show Me The Pizza Guy', previewed by LA super-producers Classixx in their mix for The Fader and Triple J they affectionally cite that "The Touch Sensitive tracks are masterfully produced and ultra-emotive. 'Pizza Guy' transports me to running the final stretch of my high school x country races in slow motion."
