„I keep asking myself where they take all that brilliant music from. It’s just as if somebody had poked a bees’ nest and then it all burst out. I feel deeply connected to the Pampa Style..." (Terry Hogann, The Musical Mistress, 10/2010). As was to be expected, Pampa is steadily developing into a platform for cross-border electronic dance music. Each Pampa release sounds different from the previous and still Pampa remains a conclusive musical planet. This is all the more surprising in the case of PAMPA005, which features two completely different artists: Side A: Nathan Fake - Xmas Rush Having reportedly recorded his track „Xmas Rush“ in his London studio during a jam session, Nathan Fake (Border Community, Traum, SAW) has turned in a total brainfuck. It’s mercylessly exaggerated, psychedelic, inexorable, and at the same time sweet and heart-warming. A very rare mixture. Unique in its consistency, we haven’t heard anything like it since the 90s. It’s so nice and overwhelming to have your ears exercised the right way again. Evergreen... Side AA: DJ Koze pays tribute to Michael Smith - "Mi Cyaan believe it" In the meantime, DJ Koze has moved on to completely different spheres. Once again, he astonishes his public with an extremely danceable version of Michael Smith’s "Mi Cyaan Believe It". Having originally started off as a digital error, and recorded within a single night, this tune recalls the ruthlessness, rawness and revolutionary energy of Public Enemy. You can literally see SW1 deploying on the balcony of Amnesia, shitting down diarrhea. The rough and dry beat sets the perfect scenery for the breath-taking lyrics by Michael Smith, the great dub poet, who was tragically beaten to death by political opponents in Jamaica in 1983 (the incident sadly occurred on Marcus Garvey's birthday), alongside Linton Kwesi Johnson, and Mutabaruka, who was one of the most well-known dub poets.

As crazy as beautiful. All tracks are best ever tracks ever. I cry, laugh and dance - all at once. death by pleasure... thank you!

Crikey. Nathan Fake is amazing. Maybe a bit hectic for many of the places I play, but the dub will work in lots of them. Koze's track is fierce too, but Nathan's my fave

Chateau Flight

Hard to choose! Kind of dream team, wicked music!

Ripperton

Well it's got to be Mi Cyaan Believe It. An absolute killer! A fitting tribute to Michael Smith who i respected highly as a poet. Out there!

Oh my god. I feel like the world is slipping off its axis..."

De:Bug - Sascha Kösch

Höchst eigenwillige Tracks mal wieder von Nathan Fake. Auf Xmas Rush bringt er einen eigenwillig verröhrten Weihnachtsgesang zu holprigsten Beats und brummigen Synthesizern, die immer mehr Aggressivität in den Track bohren und ihn zu einer bösen Hymne warden lassen. Auf der Koze Seite gibt es jamaikanischen Killergesang zu plinkernd holzigen Grooves, die für mich manchmal etwas sehr nebenmit einander her laufen. Dabei ist beides für sich genommen Killer.

Imagine the Doctor Who theme tune re-imagined within the mind of Aphex Twin of the day he heard dubstep for the first time and you are getting some way towards understanding the electronic mess that is ‘Xmas Rush’. A far cry from a festive carol (despite a haunting sample from The Carpenters ‘Merry Christmas Darling’), it offers a sinister insight into a synesthetic  mind tripping on magic mushrooms, horrified by scenes of relentless consumerism while battling hordes of shoppers on Oxford Street. The result? A gush of chugging acidic bass, erratic snares rushing in a sea of static electricity. “Merry Christmas darling”, indeed!

Magazine - Raveline

Pampa die Fünfte. Mit dabei wieder Koze höchstpersönlich und Pampa-Debütant Nathan Fake, die uns beide Elektronik aus dem Grenzbereich zwischen Freak und konventionell präsentieren. Fake macht den Anfang, sein „Xmas Rush“ brummt brodelnd bis zum bitteren Ende mit 90er Flair und Fiepsen im Ohr, was auch zwischendurch derbe ausartet und jenseits von Gut und Hose ist. Krank. Koze liefert seinen ganz persönlichen Tribut von Michael Smiths „Mi Cyaan Believe It“ ab, einem alten ReggaeDancehallWasauchimmer-Gassenhauer. Der Gesangsteil, gepaart mit anfangs noch straighten, minimalen Beats und später aufbrandenden Sound- und Vocalfragmentshow. Wieder mal ein großes Highlight.
