SUPERTUNES #2: KID SUNDANCE FT BJORN MARIA

July 30, 2015

Today we present the second Supertunes-track! This one’s by legendary Dutch artist Kid Sundance. Kid Sundance, known for his debut LP Kid’s Colors and collaborations with Dudley Perkins and Busy Bee amongst others, teams up with vocalist Bjorn Maria (Eindhoven, NL) for an eerie hiphoptune. On Didn’t I, Sundance serves soulful boombap with a twist while the silk voiced Bjorn Maria breaks down a story about a beautiful marriage turning into a nightmare. The track is mastered by Budy Mokoginta (Mokosound). The artwork is made by the curating man himself, Mister Adam (Amsterdam, NL).

And don’t forget: download our first Supertunes song: Warchant by the new group Mighty Atlas (supported by Gieljazz, Dubmission, Audio Texture, Egotripland etc.)!

The first Supertunes-track to hit the streets is by Dutch group Mighty Atlas. Mighty Atlas brings you a luscious combination of future beats, dub, jazz, world grooves and 80’s elektrofunk. The key-administers are Neels Smeekens, Wiboud Burkens and Rogier van Hout, getting together on the tune ‘Warchant’ with trumpeteer Michael Varekamp, guitarist Tristan Driesenaar and drummer Vincent den Hengst. The track is mastered by Kwezydoctor.

Currently Mighty Atlas is finishing its debutalbum featuring multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Baba Sissoko, bassplayer Bruno Ferro Xavier da Silva, saxophonist Itai Weissman and other guests.
