Mix Monday 30
On the long weekend the Parklife tour managed to tear through three capital cities in three days. The middle of the mayhem was an overcast Sunday in Sydney. With a diverse and pretty deep line-up there was a lot to choose from and a range on offer to keep most happy. One of the first sets I saw on the day was in the afternoon, when there was about half an hour of sunshine which was all the day had to offer. The music that was beening spun was that of the Aeroplane Dee-Jays.
Aeroplane which is actually two guys, Vito De Luca and Stephen Fasano, are from the friendly neighbour of Europe, Belgium. These two guys have been pumping out work solidly now for a couple of years and are a favourite amongst many. I've often heard people try and critise the work of these talented two labelling there music as boring and not 'dance' music. Thats bullshit. The music these two have been producing may not be hard dance music, it's far from it. That's not the aim here. Through showing a new and fresh sound upon us Aeroplane have played a vital role in the current shift towrds more musically creative and melodic disco style music which seems to be influcing the entire dance scene currently.
The set they played was not only great musically I felt they did one of the best jobs on the day and playing right to the audience. With a very appropriate style, tempo and mixing the crowd seemed to be loving the late afternoon disco-house set. They weren't playing a tonne of their own stuff but rather a collection of some more disco/house and upbeat fun electro like Duck Sauce!
This set is a "30 minute mix" (it's actually 36) by the two is comprised entirely of there own workings. A bit slower and relaxed than the live set I witnessed this does a suberb job in showcasing the guys talents.
