Müller Records, the Berlin-based label, has a long and proud tradition of high-quality releases. It also has a strong track record in sniffing out up-and-coming talent – acts like Berliner Falk Romstedt, alias Hawkinson. His EPs and remixes – check his former eps and remixes on muller records – had already shown that he was equally at home creating techno with a driving groove as he was knocking out strong and detailed synth melodies. Now his first LP is being released on Müller Records.

“KLAF”, put succinctly, is an album that picks up the style of Hawkinson’s previous singles and runs with it. (OR: that expands on the style of Hawkinson’s previous singles.) It’s a story written by the dance floor, for the dance floor. Hawkinson is processing the experiences and emotions he’s had over the past few years both as consumer and DJ and really shows us where his roots lie – in techno! The influence of Detroit is all over this record and can be heard straight away, with strings, melodies and soulful surfaces drawing you in immediately. Added to that are the big fat pumping grooves, deep bass lines, chords and distinctly clattering hi-hats and percussions that are at the heart of Hawkinson’s sound. (OR: that define Hawkinson’s sound.)He doesn’t try to transcend other genre pigeonholes and is happy instead to showcase his own highly personal spectrum of sounds. Listeners to these 11 tracks can expect to take a trip into a wonderful sound universe, full of power and, more importantly, soul, which is transported directly to the dance floor.

OUT NOW: Stillleben EP on Phunkit Records!!!

12 inch & digital

01. Stillleben
02. Stillleben (Akiko Kiyama Remix)
03. Unterholz

Info :
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.
