Aeroplane reveal album plans

The pair met in 2001 at Vito’s record store in Brussels which Vito, where Stefan was a regular customer. After releasing three singles on Eskimo Records (“Caramellas”, “Pacific Air Race” and “Whispers”), the pair set about remixing the who’s who of the disco and synth pop world: Cut Copy, Lindstrom, MGMT, Grace Jones, Sebastien Tellier and, most memorably, Friendly Fires, all got the Aeroplane treatment.
