#12 awake is a song by Dedf1sh.


This song from assorted stages in Splatoon 2's Octo Expansion has a ethereal, dreamlike sound to it, making it sound distant. Its heavenly vibe is calmly accentuated be several different beat changes and it loops until silently ending off on a fading note. The calm nature is helpful as it is used in stages which usually require a lot of precision and patience. The song mainly consists of a repeating synthesizer ostinato which repeats throughout most all of the track, changing in pitch a few times, accompanied by some percussion and a bass. It is generally used on slower, more-thought based stations, mostly where Agent 8 has limited ink. It also plays on D05 All That 8-Ball Station (also has limited ink) and B07 Fly 8-Ball Station, which are based around shooting 8-balls to hit targets, while C11 Abracadabra Station and F02 Slow Ride Station which are focused on Agent 8 slowly figuring out the route to the goal.

In Side Order, this remix is played when the player meets Acht in the elevator. It features a more echoed sound while keeping the synthesizer melody along with the keeping the bass. Furthermore, it adds new a synth playing a new melody giving more of an alive feeling than the more repeated calm feeling of #12 awake. Similar to #0.1 Style this song is at a slower tempo.
