Italian trap-metal artist Marco Calanca aka Becko, known for his love of anime and his dynamic ability to fuse genres, returns to take on Kate Bush‘s Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) made popular again by the Netflix show Stranger Things. The new electropop cover features a dynamic fusion of synths and beats laced together with a charismatic vocal performance from Becko for an overall somber atmosphere and showcasing his wide range of vocal talent and production abilities.
“I’ve loved the 4th season of stranger things,” says Becko. “And this song represents the best part of the show!”
Rising from the ashes of post hardcore band Hopes Die Last, Italian multi-genre producer, musician, and vocalist Marco Calanca created Becko as a solo project, uniting influences of EDM, Hip-Hop, Industrial, and Emo-Rock. With previous releases under his belt with labels ranging from Warner Italy and Universal Italy, to Monstercat, Lowly Palace, and Smash the House since 2014, Becko found a new home in early 2020, signing a multi-album deal with the independent, artist-owned/operated USA-based electronic-rock label FiXT, founded by genre-pioneering artist & producer Klayton (Celldweller, Circle of Dust).
In 2020, Becko released the full-length album INNER SELF, as a triumphant fusion of trap & metal. In 2021 Becko released a flurry of singles including Darkest Days which was produced by Mike Shinoda all on the path leading up to the release of his second full-length trap-metal album with FiXT, You Are (Not) Alone, which dropped in early 2022.
