Berlin's Pampa label is set to release a new double a-sided single with tracks from Nathan Fake (pictured above) and label head DJ Koze, on which the two established artists are found concocting somewhat out-of-character tunes. Nathan Fake's selection, "Xmas Rush," features a Christmas-themed sample that gets twisted and glitched amongst a snarling bassline, reminiscent of '90s-era aggresive techno, while Koze's contribution is a tribute to the late dub poet Michael Smith which employs a bare and pulsing beat underneath the lyrics of Smith's well-known poem "Mi Cyaan Believe It." The "Xmas Rush" b/w "Mi Cyaan Believe It" single should prove to be another release to add to the diverse catalog already in the works over at Pampa. You can listen to a shortened version of the Nathan Fake track below, and be on the lookout for the 12", which will be available on December 6.
