VA – Draumar Um Kalt Sumar

Mikey Murka
Sensi Addict / disrupt – Arcade Addict

Para ser sincero, viagra approved nunca he sido muy fanático de la música electrónica de 8 bits, aunque si de las tonadas originales del Nintendo (en especial aquella melodia de Zelda y Castlevania). Pero esa moda creada a partir de juegos diseñados para Gameboy advance y otras consolas nunca fue de mi total agrado por no ser, a mi modo de ver y solo a mi modo de ver, una propuesta que trascendiera más allá de una o dos melodías medianamente interesantes. Mikey Murka se desentiende completamente de la música de 8 bits y simplemente usa samples de un viejo recuerdo de nuestra niñez y lo vuelve una hermosa canción Reggae . Qué más se puede pedir?


“Unity-legend Mikey Murka on a classic old-school digital smasher – a true
hymn on the good sensimilla! Apart from Mikey’s incredible vocal niceness
this one includes rocking drummachine action, original spliff lighting
sounds, smoked out surprises from beginning to end and loads of good vibes –
simply a great and fun-packed document of the unforgettable times we had
back in April when Mikey and Kris Kemist from Realityshock were over in
Germany for some days full of Reggae music from dusk till dawn. In case
summer hasn’t caught up on you yet this track will supply just the right
spark to light it up. More fine tunes by Mikey in the tube so check back
soon for that!

The same riddim again on B – but this time fully into 8bit-arcade-mode for
the coin-operated MP3 player of your choice, you might want to wiggle the
beat along with an old joystick here! The tune makes funky use of the
original Donkey Kong arcade machine recordings from THIS awesome project:
back in 1982 two kids grabbed a stereo cassette recorder and started to tape
all the beautiful crunchy noises those brilliant arcade machines possibly
can create. As well as the atmosphere around them – and the idea itself!
Altogether fourteen (!) cassettes, available for free download at, highly recommended. Not only an unvaluable time
document but also an important cultural heritage preserved! Thanks Dan!

And if you’re still pondering about the connection between the good herbs
and Donkey Kong simply check THIS screenshot from the arcade version. Then
all becomes clear – or smoky. Enjoy!”

Draumar Um Kalt Sumar

Alguien alguna vez escribio que la música realmente rescatable de netlabels siempre se encontraba en las recopilaciones. No estoy completamente de acuerdo con esa persona, allergy
pero tengo la impresión de que cuando lo escribió estaba pensando en discos como éste. Un compilado hecho por el sello lituano, muy compacto y homogéneo. Bella música de diferentes autores en un sólo trabajo junto a fotografías de Kioskas, Synthetiq, Nina, No_Joy, Modifikator y Sleeper. Aunque me sentí mas atraído por la primera mitad del disco (como los dos temas de Galaktlan o el de los chicos de morr music ISAN), no pueden dejarse a un lado bellos tracks como el del alemán Static, recordándonos lo necesario que es escuchar sus discos publicados en City centre offices.


“In a wonderful Icelandic language [Draumar Um Kalt Sumar] means Dreams About Cold Summer. If to be sincere we don‘t really know why we are dreaming about cold summer…It might be because it is unusual but still very beautiful – same as Iceland itself. In spite of the fact that none of us has ever been to Iceland we are felling unaccountable admiration towards this small, cold and mean island. We are so crazy about it that we even decided to dedicate our latest release to it. That is why its name is in Icelandic language (thanks to Steini). That is why its gallery is full of exceptional Icelandic scenery. That is why this music is full of those feelings that will tell you about this wonderland. About its clear, cold sky and unordinary lines of its landscape. We want to sincerely thank all of you who helped us in turning this idea into a little miracle. We also would like to thank all of you who were not afraid of waiting for so long.

We hope that you will feel like standing under the cold sky of Iceland at least for a moment while listening to this compilation. That would be more than enough for us… ”
