Mix Monday 37
Last year's Parklife festival in Australia was Aeroplane's debut appearance on the Australian scene and the lack of attention surrounding this Belgian duo was quickly turned around. What is remarkable about these guys is two things. Firstly, their production is amazing. Simple and not overdone their work is so powerful and musically sound. Their sound can be described as cosmic or balearic disco. This is the way forward in the electronic dance with the heavy, noisy, distorted beats becoming increasingly stale and repetitive. The second aspect which stood out to me was there live set. I was quite keen to catch these guys at Parklife and as equally excited to see what they'd play. The beauty of the music they play which obviously includes their own stuff is that although it may sound quite slow and subtle for dance music on your laptop speakers when heard in a club on a decent system and 10-20 bpm faster it suddenly turns into a very danceable vibe.
Now, for those of you who have somehow missed Aeroplane's Mix Charts over the last six months you are in for a royal treat. Back in August last year the boys released their first mix on Soundcloud. What these mixes aim to achieve is to showcase 10 songs each month that are new and obviously appeal to them. Through simple and long mixes these monthly mix charts do a fantastic job and showing new and well crafted tunes that fit into the Aeroplane style of music.
So here is the most recent mix in the collection. It's nothing short of amazing like the rest of them so enjoy.
