As we inch closer to the release date of Aeron Aether's artist album, "Landscapes & Dimensions," it is our great thrill to reveal the second single, "Falling," featuring fellow Hungarian talent Sebastian on vocals. In the early going, we find Aether at his most inspired: ground-shaking bass, adrenalin-fueled drum hits, and (cinematic) reversed strings, all of which conspire to create an all-around epic soundscape. At the quarter turn, we are met with Sebastian's honeyed opening verse, which begins with the triumphant opening line: "I wish I could touch the lights." Ultimately, the song's anthemic refrain, "Falling down to the deep," offers an emotional climax, matched by Aether's equally poignant concluding instrumental section.
Ukrainian sensation Hexlogic, who emerged in 2017 as one of the brightest new recruits to our roster, offers a deliciously deep and groovy remix. Focusing on the dark, almost subterranean atmospheric elements of the original, Hexlogic crafts a dynamic and resonant bassline, which chugs along and effectively carries the tune to the main break, with only a few subtle, yet incisive melodic variations on the original themes accompanying it. In the breakdown itself, the drums completely drop out, and the listener is suddenly treated to the most memorable hook from Sebastian's chorus, "Falling down to the deep," with hypnotic string effects also along for the ride. When the groove reappears, you can almost visualize anthropomorphic stalactites and stalagmites bopping along to the beat.
