Illumination's album 'The Poppy Rocks' was released exclusively in Norway back in 2003. After the duo's outstanding and widely acclaimed deep house album 'This is Illumination' from 1999, followed by their extensive remix activities and DJ touring under their Chilluminati guise, Nicholas Sillitoe and Per Martinsen dove into the studio once more and this time created an album of downtempo electronic pop. One of the standout tracks, 'Kool Karma', had Nicholas team up with Anneli Drecker on vocals for a lovely duet well suited for the early Sunday dawn, when the sonic boom from the club is nothing but a vague memory. The duo wrote 'post-apocalyptic campfire song' on the studio tracksheet, and like Minnie Ripperton's 'Loving you', 'Kool Karma' still strangely blended into the cauldron filled with balearic stew that sat atop the fireplaces of Oslo's afterhours clubs at the time. On this re-issue, two PM mixes add more contemporary beats and basslines to reintroduce the track to the dancefloors of 2010, and the original 7-inch B-side 'Palestine, Texas' is still included. The original version is also part of the forthcoming virtual soundtrack of transmedia novel 'Earthbound - Surfing the Apocalypse'.
