The guy’s from Big Mister Doom put together an enchanting video for track numero quatro – ‘Extrapolate Yourself’ – on their ‘Disconnected Repeater‘ EP. Be seized!
Close to two years ago, Breda-based producer Esolar a.k.a. Saccage released his Yield & Continue EP on Fremdtunes. One of the key-tracks on this EP was the Coco Bryce Remix of ’Monkey Business’. All though this was a remix, Esolar never published the original track…till now. Finally you can listen to the original version on youtube, and thus watch it too. The accompanying, highly amusing, animated video is created by Joost Raaijmaakers & Esolar.
Starting with a new Weather Fremdcast Guestmix by the ultimate party-DJ/turntablist Courtasock from Turnhout, Belgium. Courtasock blends uptempo hip-hop, funk, soul, boogie, afro, latin, reggae, dub, breaks and gets you on the good foot. Ecoute!
Today, straight from Arizona, comes the first compilation (free!) by Filthy Broke Recordings: ‘Best Buds Compilation Volume 1‘ featuring artists like, Nappychan, Wood Ox, Alphabets ft dan0, Magic Nana and two familiar faces: Julian Edwardes and Kid Sundance. If this compilation portrays the shape of things to come on Filthy Broke Recordings, the future’s looking bright, promising, experimental and filthy flar’n filthy.
Talking about the future, DJ Iron’s ‘Classic Recipes Volume 1‘ goes the other direction on the time-line. Taking it back to the ’90′s, Iron and friends took vocals of classic hip-hop tracks and furnished them with outstanding, jazzy sample-based beats.
And then: Kelpe announces his new album ‘Fourth: The Golden Eagle’. We had the privilege to have a sneak-listen and well: we’re grateful we could. What’s not be liked about Kelpe’s music: he’s able to make electronic music sound lively, ‘natural’, pounding yet refined, complex yet groovy, melodic and he has it’s very own signature. He’s been putting out music for a steady 10 years now and after releasing music on DC Recordings, Myor, Black Acre, Myor and of course Fremdtunes, he kick-started his own imprint this year.
Make sure you check the ‘Beaks of Eagles’ remix by French king-of-the-beats Fulgeance.
We finish this Fremdcast off with some incoming messages: Julien Mier is about to drop his new EP on Lowriders, follow this talented guy. And stay alert for the upcoming releases by Jay Hats, Planes and Moods.
That’s the Fremdcast for today, enjoy the weather!
DJ Mace, who just released his latest outing as Fremdkunst for Kitchen Dip Recordings, put together a new mix called ‘Tape This Beat This’. It’s chaotic, associative, dusty, glitchy, noisy, beat-heavy and filled with a lot of old hip-hop, jazz, funk and spoken word…download and listen.
A new Fremdkunst EP touched down at Kitchen Dip Recordings!
Named 'The Blue Marble', this EP is once again an exploration of the outer-limits of the Fremdkunst-universe by DJ Mace (initiator of Fremdkunst and co-owner of Fremdtunes) and friends. Ambientlike soundscapes & robust beats - almost submerging in pools of glitches, reverb and samples, but always managing to keep floating on strong rhythmtracks and catchy melodies.
