AllMusic Review by

This 12" is the first major release by Double Helix, the Ypsilanti, MI-based duo of Hans and Rebecca Anderson. Released on the Netherlands-based Rush Hour label, Funxtiles offers a trio of equally solid downtempo-themed house tracks of varied hues. Limpid but deceptively intricate, both "D & A" and "Lowkey" thrive on several interwoven melodic elements -- all to the tingly dazzlement of the ears -- atop light grooves that are embellished by hand percussion and ambient smudges. "Nunix" bases itself on a pleasant drum break with odd synth squiggles and what sounds like severely warped samples of woodwinds and horns. Promising -- to say the absolute least.
