Jamka - X years podcast + new track
We have had the pleasure to put together a podcast for Eastern Daze. We approached it as an assortment of our sounds spanning over a period of the last ten years. When listening to them you will not find any chronological order in the way they follow. Instead the individual tracks were arranged so that they relate to each other sonically and in their attitude. The podcast delivers 12 tracks overall and includes a bonus in the form of a lost and recently found song Jopra recorded in Bratislava in 2002. This track is now available as a free digital download:


To listen to the podcast, just click on the link below:


We hope you like it ;]

Some thoughts about our Pari Passu CD on blog.monsieurdelire

"Number 10 in Sub Rosa’s “New Series Framework.” Jamka is a duo from Slovakia, though now residing in London. Pari Passu is their fourth album, and it is quite remarkable. Using synthesizers, sequencers and samplers, Monika Subrtova and Daniel Kordik are building bold compositions borrowing from kosmische musik, krautrock, Gothic techno, industrial, and noise music. Repetitive melodies, haphazard beats, wild flurries of noise – this album has it all and puts it all together, letting the listener draw meaning from the heap. Think Emeralds without the psychedelia, or a less self-centred Oneohtrix Point Never."
