Aeroplane & Penguin seduce Hyde Beach for a night of the sexiest electronic production from Belgium to New York.
You fly with Aeroplane once, you don't forget it. In just three years, the Italian-Belgian producer has established himself as party-starting DJ, remixer du jour -with his spacious cosmic-disco re-rerubs of Grace Jones (William's Blood), Friendly Fires (Paris) and Sebastien Tellier (Kilometer)- and, via his own piano-sprinkled melancholic beauties like Caramellas,leaders of thenu-disco and Balearica scene. So Aeroplane's debut album, We Can't Fly, arrives with sky-high hopes.
Aeroplane is a one-man operation. Flying solo has given Vito the chance to flex his classically trained musical muscles: 'We've been put in the dance music category but I'm a songwriter, that's what I know how to do. I wanted to go back to proper pop music, not being forced to play tracks so the DJ can mix in before and after.'
Penguin Prison is an electro-pop act from New York that made its commercial recording debut in 2009 in association with Neon Gold Records. Comprised of Chris Glover, a producer, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist, Penguin Prison is often compared to contemporary electro-pop acts such as Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem, and Miike Snow.
Glover made his commercial recording debut as Penguin Prison with the Animal Animal/A Funny Thing EP in 2009 on Neon Gold Records. Another double-sided single, The Worse It Gets/Something I'm Not, followed on the label in 2010. A self-titled debut album arrived in 2011 on Downtown Records. In addition to his production output, Glover made a name for himself as Penguin Prison with a bunch of remixes for the likes of Marina & the Diamonds ("I Am Not a Robot"), Sébastien Tellier ("Fingers of Steel"), Goldfrapp ("Rocket"), Erik Hassle ("Hurtful"), and others.
