skarworx – So Why Are You Here? (AKB Remix)

The second single ‘So Why Are You Here?’ from skarworx gets a brand new ambient suit in a remix signed by AKB. Based on the same compelling piano and cello original but with a new, smoothly reverberated ambient framework to rest within. Suspended in time and place but still perpetually moving forward toward the inevitable crescendo and subsequent release.

AKB is the acronym of Swedish ambient producer Anna-Karin Berglund. A solo project where slow soothing melodies sprout from various analogue electronics. The most notable release is the critically acclaimed debut album Marianergraven (Lamour Records, 2020).
