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.
Supertunes! is a new initiative by Fremdtunes (and a follow up to our 2013 project Reprogram) meant to spread free tunes and fresh artwork across the cloud. Each month we’ll release a new track by (a) renowned musician(s) and fresh artwork by a talented designer. Curated by Fremdtunes and Mister Adam!
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.
Fremdsessions part SEVEN is online now! 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. On a regular bases we share audio-files (and video will follow in the near future) of practices, live DJ-mixes, jam-sessions with guest-musicians or performances by other artists through our Fremdtunes Youtube channel!
This one’s a part of a session/DJ-set where Mace (turntables, fx) challenges Vincent (drums) with BPM switches. Here Mace is toying with Y’all ain’t ready by J Dilla and Ghetto Power by The Ghetto Brothers. Hiphop and funk is where it’s at y’all!
Here’s the latest monthly mix by Kool DJ Mace: including music by Gigi Masin, Brother Jack McDuff, The Ghetto Brothers (Bronx band), Ish, Max Graef & Andy Hart, Michael Small (from the Klute soundtrack), Affinity and many other classic tunes. Tune in: enjoy!
Fremdsessions part 6! Another jamsession by Vincent den Hengst (drums & concept) + Rogier van Hout (turntables + fx + production).
