The Next Sounds: Aeroplane

Nu-disco King Vito De Luca, aka Aeroplane, is like butter on my turntables. Sleek, rich, and it just sticks. I find that any time is the right time for Aeroplane. Taking a hint from Scissor Sisters, this Belgian is a risk-taker, and not just musically.

Take a look at the video for “Superstar” and you’ll get the idea:

I think Freddy Mercury would appreciate that piano riff. Big, bold, and very ambitious, he takes chances with that standard nu-disco sound. While critics have mixed views on his latest full length We Can’t Fly, I think anyone who challenges the norm is worth a second listen.

Just take the infectious title track, “We Can’t Fly”. Glossy synth and groovy hints of dub mix surprisingly well with gospel-esque vocals. Who would have thought…

Aeroplane got his start as a remix artist, emphasis on “artist”. His sultry take on Friendly Fires’ “Paris” was the first track that really started to turn heads. Following up with remixes for big names like MGMT, Robbie Williams, Cut Copy, Bloc Party, Grace Jones, and the catchy Flight Facilities “Crave You” remix, Aeroplane became a phenomenon.

Finding an Aeroplane remix is like finding a pot of gold. You just know he poured his shiny disco heart into it. I’ll leave you with a little gem named “Faith”. Enjoy, and be sure to check out more of his music for yourself.

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
