releases

MAMKA RECORDS opens with a release of two songs (CHICKEN, DIE TOTEN/THE DEAD) from the sound-comic WENDY PFERD TOD MEXICO (#neon-western #audio-diverse #sound-comic). Premiered and taking 1st place at the Berlin Audio-Play Festival / Berlinerhörspielfestival, the piece celebrated its first broadcast in Radio Art – Kunstradio (Ö1) in 2018. The work is a production of the electro-acoustic duo Rdeča Raketa (Maja Osojnik, Matija Schellander) and the author Natascha Gangl.
MAMKA RECORDS publishes with MAM#02 – MI CORAZÓN the second extraction from the sound-comic WENDY PFERD TOD MEXICO (#neon-western #audio-diverse #sound-comic). After the first single release “CHICKEN”, a punk mescaline ride on Afro-beat, over-polished, low-fi audio files, under the blaze of the desert sun, it’s now onto the shady and the melancholic.

MAMKA RECORDS publishes with MAM#03 – SUPERANDOME – SUPER RANDOM ME the third extraction from the sound-comic WENDY PFERD TOD MEXICO (#neon-western #audio-diverse #sound-comic). Following the singles “CHICKEN” (a punk mescaline ride on Afro-beat, over-polished, low-fi audio files, under the blaze of the desert sun) and “MI CORAZÓN” (a tribute to the magical realism of Mexico, in which the dubious and the melancholic join hands), the third and final single is about the ultimate collage. It is about seeing what is said in a new light, deconstructing it, reassembling it and creating cinematic miniatures that stand alone as independent sound art works. #cut-and-paste, #upcycling- madness-to-the-peak, #sound-comic-at-its-finest. Or to go with Marcel Proust’s solemn description: “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
MAMKA RECORDS publishes in Cooperation with VENTIL RECORDS a new LP RDEČA RAKETA …and cannot reach the silence (MAM#04) The new album deals with the current world of
misunderstandings, communicating past each other, willingly and unwillingly overlooking or ignoring each other’s meanings and, with that, the tightening of incompatible parallel “realities.” It explores forms of violence; physical and verbal, external and self-inflicted. It explores forms of power; the dangerous thin line between giving power to and giving power over oneself, and forms of subjugation and addiction on both societal and, more significantly, on interpersonal levels. “… Look at us! Beasts, bottomless pits, never to be full! To be fulfilled. Glued onto each other in sweat, a never-ending pain and evenly spread, at all times…” In those dark, dystopian lyrics, full of questions, such as „What is being said and what stays unspoken? Who does it refer to? Who is protecting whom? For what reasons? Who is being addressed or what needs to be considered?” the wish, the need and the struggle for self-empowerment, honesty, love and reconciliation is exposed or, at the very least, nourished.
