It seems like Hawkinson has drawn his inspiration from the lush crackling whispering of the woods. Akiko seems to see it the same way and with her remix makes a compelling overall package of the second “12” by Phunkit. “Unterholz” is a crisp driving, deep techno roller with playful percussion elements, subtle functionally-held choral dubs and a bass line drily humming to itself. “Stillleben” crackles bone-dry and elegantly at the same time, the light melodic phrases form a great contrast to the massive wall of bass. Akiko is tinkering a little organic dust monster out of “Stillleben”. Definitely superb how she is breathing her principle of life into the whole theme, so that you almost wish the track would never end.
