Pari Passu is Jamka's fourth full-length album. It was recorded live with minimum overdubs in London between summer 2010 and spring 2011. It relies heavily on the use of hardware equipment, delivering a focused and full sound rich in detail, color and dynamics. Jamka is a music project set up by Monika Subrtova and Daniel Kordik, who first met as philosophy students in Slovakia. After playing in various hardcore and punk bands, Kordik had gradually become more interested in the idea of making music with electronic devices, and when Subrtova began to share his enthusiasm for synthetic sounds and misleading compositions, they decided to explore this territory together. Jamka played their first gig in autumn 2001 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava. Using a sequencer and a sampler, they generated raw-sounding rhythms and structures. In the same year, together with RBNX and Urbanfailure, they released their first common CD-R/tape, Urb Sound Systems, and founded the Slovakian Urbsounds Collective. Jamka now reside in London, where they have established themselves as part of the local experimental scene. Using synthesizers, sequencers, samplers and various FX boxes, they touch on the darker side of techno, industrial and noise music, approaching it in their own uncompromising way. Their music is a whirlwind of colliding rhythms and fractured structures, punctuated throughout with hard-hitting sounds. Sub Rosa's Framework series; limited edition of 400 copies.
