MO Sound-Bites Presents Aeroplane

Event Closed

More Details

Producer and DJ Vito de Luca, known as Aeroplane, is the latest groundbreaking artist to take the stage at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong’s ‘MO SOUND-BITES’ electronic music event, with his distinctive analog house sound.

Known for his extravagant remix of French house and Balearic beats, Aeroplane’s disco-style maximalist performance playfully flirting with kitsch has made him a favourite of BBC Radio 1 and artists like Grace Jones and Cut Copy.

Born in Belgium to Italian parents, De Luca trained as a classical pianist and guitarist, but at 19 he opened his own record shop aged and quickly made a mark with Aeroplane’s first single, Caramellas. He then released several Beatport-charting EPs, embarked on a new ‘sample-house’ project called FLUSH with Defected Records, launched an acclaimed collaborative group called Metroplane with Alex Metric, and teamed up with Purple Disco Machine and Aloe Blacc for a single released on Spinnin’ Deep.

On world-wide tours, de Luca has performed at Coachella 2014, TomorrowWorld 2015, Made in America 2015, NOS Alive Festival 2015, Space Ibiza Resident DJ Summer 2015, CRSSD 2015 & 2016, Splash House 2016, and was Glitterbox Resident DJ Summer 2017 so he has touched down on every continent except for Antarctica in the past two years.

De Luca’s latest chart-topping recording is Love On Hold on the Glitterbox label.

“Aeroplane is the fastest way to get any party started so this one-night event is going to be one to remember,” says The Landmark Mandarin Oriental’s General Manager Archie Keswick. “We are very pleased to welcome an artist of his caliber to our MO Sound-Bites series.”
