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
coinopvideogames.com, 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!
