Aeroplane on Owning a Record Store, the Inspiration for His Moniker, and the Rule Every Track Must Follow

While a typical club dancefloor finds its climax at 130 beats per minute or faster, Vito De Luca, aka Aeroplane, manages to achieve the same excitement at a comfortable 105 bpm. Inspired by the disco of the late '70s and sexy synths of the early '80s, De Luca conjures an enjoyable nostalgia with his soulful garage-groove melodies. Formerly a duo, but now a one-man operation, the classically trained De Luca has gained a dedicated following with his free monthly mixes of exclusive tracks from peers like Classixx and The Rapture. He recently spoke with All Shook Down about those famed monthly mixes and the rule he applies to every track he makes. Aeroplane headlines Mezzanine this Friday with support from Poolside and Cassian.
