Crimea X "A Present (Legowelt Remix)"
One of the few people who can be trusted to deftly take a spaced-out synth-pop song like Crimea X's "A Present" into even more interstellar territory is Legowelt. On his remix of the Italian duo's track—both versions of which will appear on the b-side of Crimea X's forthcoming 12" for Hell Yeah—the Netherlands-based, hardware-obsessed producer proves worthy of such trust, folding the track into thick layers of dreamy synths while the pulse of a finely programmed drum machine and a revolving stream of analog tweaks peak through the surface. Crimea X's "Haunted Love" b/w "A Present" 12"—which also features a remix from Phillip Lauer (of Tuff City Kids and Arto Mwambe)—will see an official release on November 20.
