Album Review: Aeroplane – ‘In Flight Entertainment’

Off-kilter house, funk and exotic pop

Having made his name with SoundCloud mixes – and remixes for artists including [a]Friendly Fires[/a] – [a]Aeroplane[/a] faced a dilemma when it came to his first mix album: how do you entice 40,000 people who have been downloading your stuff for free to shell out for a CD? His solution was to assemble exclusive tracks from artists he’s tipped, add a new production of his and put them together in a mix that reeks of Balearic beaches and suntan lotion. The result is a brilliant album of off-kilter house, funk and exotic pop that should entice even disco skinflints.
