Premiere: 2030 – In Aeternum (Luke Hess Remix)

A man has many names. 2030 is just one of them. Under this alias, Nico Campanella has released a cassette album as well as a recent 12″ on Clone, and now he’s landed on Black Crow with a super package of nostalgia-inducing electro backed with some stellar remixes. “In Aeternum” is a gorgeous cut, breathy synths leading the way down an early-90s path, a flurry of hi-hats darting forward at every turn while a rush of flutes and claps intermingle beautifully. “Timeworm” follows a similar pattern, more wide-eyed and expansive perhaps, but no less impressive. Label bosses Deep’a & Biri contribute two intense remixes of the latter, but today we bring you a remix of “In Aeternum” from Detroit man Luke Hess. While the original is bright and spacious, this take is dark and robust. It kicks hard and heavy, its tones and feelings thick and warm, opening up only a long way in as the original’s synth theme comes to life.

2030 – Timeworm EP is out soon on Black Crow
