Lost in Music waves goodbye to the winter and opens its doors to the summer with two headliners, synonymous with the sound of the Adriatic and Balearics, Vito De Luca aka Aeroplane and Dublin’s Hidden Agenda to Stage & Radio on Saturday 9 June 2018.
Italian-Belgian producer, Aeroplane, has established himself as a party-starting DJ, a remixer du jour, and a pioneer of the nu-disco and Balearic music scenes. His unique “analog house” sound and distinct writing style sets him apart from the rest. In the past few years, Aeroplane has produced several HypeMachine chart-topping remixes, including Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie,” Mystery Skull’s “Paralyzed,” and Charli XCX’s “Boom Clap” and has released several Beatport-charting EP’s including his latest “Love On Hold” on the Glitterbox label, launched a new "sample-house" project called FLUSH with Defected Records, launched an acclaimed collaborative group with Alex Metric (called Metroplane), and teamed up with Purple Disco Machine and Aloe Blacc for a single released on Spinnin’ Deep.
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 Ground-breaking 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.
