Following Pingipung's reissue of Umeko Ando's Ihunke, the label invited an eclectic bunch of producers to remix Umeko Ando's Ainu folklore songs. Folktronica wizard Nicolá Cruz replaces Umeko's voice with a traditional flute and infuses "Battaki" with driving, percussive spirits. Gama and RLHBSLCN focus on the psychedelic tremors in Umeko Ando's brittle voice in "Iyomante Upopo" and "Atuy So Kata". Andi Otto captures a funky acid-bass energy in "Iyomante Upopo". M.RUX's take on "Herutun Rutun" is definitely another masterpiece in his oeuvre. El Búho takes the "Battaki" Tonkori, a Japanese hand-held harp, and creates a type of slow house.
