Fremdtunes is a Dutch independent recordlabel / blog / community mainly focussing on beats- and groove-based, electronic music, art and wicked concepts. So far, we worked with artists like Kelpe, Kid Sundance, Coco Bryce, Mister Adam, El da Sensei, Erwin Vann, Moods, Klaas Verplancke and others. Make sure you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud and sign up for our newsletter.
As you may know, we are preparing our third vinyl release in ‘Fremdtunes – The Series’ series (here’s part 1 and part 2). To make sure the whole world has our previous vinyl releases, we low-priced all our slices of wax on Bandcamp! Get yours, share the word, enjoy…
We proudly present the third Supertunes-track: Energy Saver by Dutch artist Feiertag! An uptempo, bass-heavy, jubilant track that will surely get you on the good foot. This is Feiertags last track made in his old homestudio, before moving into his new recording studio. Inspired by Tokimonsta, Feiertag pitches contrabasstones and toys with new percussion instruments, basically telling himself to take things easy. The track is mastered by Budy Mokoginta (Mokosound). The artwork is made by Lars van Wieren.
Feiertag is a drummer/producer from Utrecht, The Netherlands, who makes tracks that combine UK bass, house, garage and two-step. His unique songs are composed of catchy melodies and syncopated beats, creating a refreshing organic sound. Feiertag (or under his previous monniker Hamertje Tik) released music on labels like BMKLTSCH, INI, Basserk Records, Jalapeno Records and Mad-Hop. Besides producing records he’s known for playing drums for breakbeatfunkateers Kraak & Smaak.
Supertunes! is a new initiative by Fremdtunes meant to spread free tunes and fresh artwork across the cloud. Each month a new track by (a) renowned musician(s) and fresh artwork by a talented designer is released. The project is curated by Fremdtunes and Mister Adam. So far two Supertunes songs were released: Warchant by new group Mighty Atlas and Didn’t I by Kid Sundance ft Bjorn Maria.
Fremdkunst (with Arjan Vriens on keys, Jonatan Hendriks on guitar & Vincent den Hengst on drums) just released a new song called ‘Creative Nihilsm’ on the excellent Frietboerism compilation ‘Label Sampler 2’. Other artists chipping in are Eni-less, Autonon, Eigenheimer, Mosphire and many others…check!
Fremdsessions part TEN! These sessions are a direct derivative of the rehearsal-sessions by Kool DJ Mace and drummer Vincent den Hengst, who are working every week on their Fremdkunst DJ/live-set at Fremdtunes HQ. For this session Vincent and Mace invited keyplayer/sample-artist Arjan Vriens. The three are improvising with a steady beat, funkdafied keys and sounds from outtaspace. Enjoy!
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.)!
