With a French sensibility and a hint of Dutch-ness, they get the best of both worlds in Belgium. The music that comes out of that country is hands-down some of the freshest and smoothest stuff ever. Bands like Soulwax have blown up around the world for their finely crafted sound and amazing live show. Aeroplane, a duo also from Belgium is no exception. Their music has a flavor totally unique in todays electronic music scene. Its lush and subtle and does not blow out your ear drums when you listen to it. Have a listen!
‘Caramellas’ is from Aeroplane’s first ever 12″ release back in 2007. Its a smooth, kick-back sort of track. ‘Above the Clouds’ is my personal favorite. Just listen to the first few seconds and you’ll know why.
Aeroplane is a remix machine and their remix of Sebastien Tellier’s Kilometer is just mad. Its definitely one of the best remixes of the year – Long live Italo. The Grace Jones remix is such a deep track that is perfect for chilling out to. Every time I listen to it, I like it a little bit more. The last track by David Rubato is a killer. It really gets kicking around 1:40. Aeroplane also just did a remix for a Lindstrøm track, but surprisingly it does not compare to these at all.
