Boomkat Product Review:
A new artist on the German Underscan label delivers an album of mashed spannered electronics crossing the yards through hip hop and into electronica with a deft hand and some amazing noises. Somshit is Akira Sawada, and he conjures some classic electronic tracks stand that out from the crowd. 'Shoe' with its mechanical hip hop breaks and industrial percussion creates a class groove, with clear and lush bell-like tones emanating a deep atmosphere over the beats, while subtle editing of the sounds and beats shows that Akira knows what he's doing in that department. 'North' hits the spot as well, with the fat sub kicks that spark off the beat and rattling snares that fill the groove perfectly while the reversed synths and msp-esque electronics push the melody out. Well worth a check as Akira certainly has the skills, ace.
