Belgian DJ/producer Vito DeLuca, aka Aeroplane, has been on the move for some years now, dropping his high praised nu-disco sound, firstly culminating in critically acclaimed 2010 album ‘We Can’t Fly’, followed by a tour-de-force of club and festival gigs, presenting his unique take on nowadays nu-disco and balearic house. Meanwhile, his tracks and remixes caused a same stir, recently highlighted with his collab with Alex Metric under the name Metroplane.
German DJ/producer Purple Disco Machine on his turn has also been making waves for a while, releasing some serious club hits since 2011 under the moniker of his much in demand ‘deep funk’ sound. In practice this means the dance floor gets a solid dose of nu-disco, funk, house and deep house, which landed PDM loads of milestone gigs, including a residency at well known clubnight Glitterbox.
After teaming up last year for the instant-anthem ‘Sambal’, a stunning piece of deep house with captivating steeldrum melody line, the guys returned in December for an exciting continuation of their collab. Turning out the next step of their exploration of current deep house, ‘Counting On Me’ featured captivating piano chords and a soulful vibe in the shape of Aloe Blacc.
Following widespread DJ and media support, the team has now revamped ‘Counting On Me’ with a radio edit that takes the record to new grounds. Adding the legendary gospel choir The Joubert Singers of ‘Standing On The Word’ fame seems to work miracles in combination with Aloe’s soulful vocals and the catchy nu-disco/deep house groove.
