The Belgian DJ/producer Vito DeLuca, aka Aeroplane, has been, 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 the 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 club night Glitterbox.
Earlier this year, the guys teamed up for the instant-anthem ‘Sambal’, a stunning piece of deep house with captivating steel drum melody line. A classic at first hear, receiving lots of DJ support this summer, the record turned into a festival favorite.
And now, the guys have returned for an exciting continuation of their collab. ‘Counting On Me’ is the next step in their exploration of the current deep house, with captivating piano chords and a soulful vibe turning the track into the ultimate feel-good dance tune. Add to this the inspired vocals of Aloe Blacc, the world famed soul singer most known for his 2010 breakthrough single ‘I Need A Dollar’, and you can expect one of the most promising dance tracks of the year.
Purple Disco Machine had this to say about the duo’s exciting new track:
“We produced ‘Counting On Me’ in the same two-day session as ‘Sambal’. When we started we wanted to make two types of tracks, firstly a Balearic disco track that we would both want to play during our sunset & pool party sets over the summer (‘Sambal’). And secondly a modern vocal disco house track that referred to both the classic house and to the indie disco scenes that we could play forever (‘Counting On Me’).”
“With this last track, we knew we had something really good going on, but left it for a few months to concentrate on ‘Sambal’. In the meantime, Aeroplane’s manager played the ‘Counting On Me’ demo to his old buddy from the LA hip-hop underground: Aloe Blacc. He loved it! And here we are now…”
