Sounding like something to come out of Solar Records in 1984, Aeroplane has an instant classic on his hands with this timeless record ‘Love On Hold’. The record embraces Aeroplane’s typically exquisite attention to detail, resulting in a perfect blend of disco, 80s funk and boogie. Seductive, refined and built on a meticulous groove, the track unites textbook instrumentation from the funking bass bridge to the sparkling synth stabs for a slick and effortless production.
For the vocals to sound truly authentic, Aeroplane tracked down the iconic voice of Tawatha Agee. Not only is Tawatha one of the greatest backing vocalist of our time, singing with Luther Vandross, Kashif or David Bowie to name a few, but she is also the voice of funk legendary band Mtume, singing on their 1983 classic ‘Juicy Fruit’. The credentials of Tawatha’s richly poised voice coupled with Aeroplane’s flawless composition make ‘Love On Hold’ unmissable.
