Aeroplane Part Ways Prior to Album Release

In a completely unexpected turn of events, Belgium's spacey, Balearic disco production duo Aeroplane has split just months before the release of its debut full-length, We Can't Fly. Aeroplane's record is still slated for release September 6 via Wall of Sound, but now the duo has become a solo affair, as Stephen Fasano left Vito De Luca to man the project alone. In a blog post, De Luca explained the split, saying, "Stephen and I have been working together for more than seven years now. Seven years of good and bad times. Seven years of creating different projects, exploring different directions. Today, we are more excited and passionate than ever about creating new music. Except that [in] the last months, Stephen's vision and mine were going different ways. That is the reason why we decided that one of us should leave Aeroplane. Not to destroy it, but to make it last." He also made sure to note, "There is no angriness here, no conflicts to come, just a mature decision to save what we've been building together, and [what] both of us do not want to see disappear." New material is to be expected from Fasano under a new guise, and De Luca will be carrying out Aeroplane duties from here on out. (via Resident Advisor)
