Jakob Sk???tt has been a life-long collaborator with friend Jonas Munk aka Manual. Their first release together was in 2002 as "Limp" releasing the highly acclaimed album on Morr Music entitled "Orion". A couple of years later the duo released under the own names for the album "Golden Sun" on Darla. Jakob is also part of the 4 piece Causa Sui with a release on Germany's Nasoni. Where the previous collaborations with Manual has been soporific hip hop beats and melting soundscapes, "Awakes" sees Syntaks explore more varied territories. The ten track album clocks in just under 50 minutes and journeys into an expertly crafted concoction of dub, Etheral guitar pop, detailed beat structures and big washes of washes of guitar with the slightest hint of Cocteau Twins at their best. This is very lovely stuff and a great album to immerse yourself in, especially in the summer sun.
