Aeroplane Remixes

4 05 2009

Long overdue, just a little tribute to Belgian duo Stephen Fasano and Vito De Luca aka Aeroplane, who are among my favorite producers out there right now.

Fantastic disco mix of “Baby I Can’t Stop”, part of Norwegian producer Lindstrom‘s ongoing effort with Solale, their debut collaboration is expected to be released sometime this year. Meanwhile, II, Lindstrom’s second cooperative effort with Prins Thomas is out May 18.

Amazing remix of Grace Jones’s autobiographical 2008 single “Williams’ Blood”. Hypnotic beat and what a narrative..this song never gets old.

Of course I have to post this one…everyone’s favorite remix of 2008. Totally transportive. “One day we’re gonna live in Paris, I promise, I’m on it.”

One of their earlier singles, kaleidoscopic guitars and balearic beats..phenom.
Aeroplane – Above the Clouds

Of course it’s’s Air France! They bring their idyllic ‘frolicking in a sunny meadow’ sound to “Skeleton Boy”, totally changing up the song. Original and video on this post.

And from last year’s perfect EP No Way Down – the perfect summer song, with its perfect album cover. That’s right, I loved’s sorta like a dream.

Welcome to bananas foster – (yet another) indie/electro/disco/pop/rock music blog.

I bet pirates really dig Friendly Fires…because they’ve got so many hooks (hah). It’s not all that new, their self-titled debut came out back in September, and the Aeroplane remix of “Paris” was all the rage last year. I’m revisiting the love train after watching their very cool new video for “Skeleton Boy.” Also included to get you further stoked, my fave track off the album, Lovesick.

And it’s a 3 song special – here’s their fantastic cover of Lykke Li’s “I’m Good, I’m Gone”.
