“Intensely demented electronic funk from the Dutch Skweee king. ‘Club Tropicana’ oozes hypercolour juice from every pore…” says Boomkat. Bleep states: “Few artists have the cajones to attempt a bag as mixed as this; even fewer could pull it off. Well done Mr B.” Kidkanevil thinks it: “Sounds incredible!” Mark Yelavich from Frybread Radio says: “It is so damn good”. Hackman called it “Colourful stuff!” And we like to call it: Club Tropicana…and it’s out NOW – on vinyl and digital!
Last week hail rained down. There was sunburst. And there was thunder & storm. But we have the same old Weather Fremdcast for you: never too cool, always sweltering & just jabbering untill the break of dawn.
Yesterday we received, in the traditional mailbox, a beautiful gift by our good friends at Thefindmag HQ: a nicely designed 7-inch called ‘PaleBlueDot‘ with music by Mr. J. Medeiros, an L.A.-based rapper, producer, singer and songwriter. The original version, produced by Stro Elliot and a hook sung by Giannina Ashe, switches smoothly from a ‘Easy like Sunday morning’-vibe to powerful, lyrical eruptions that sound like Urban Dance Squad‘s Rudeboy’s. The remix, done by 20Syl with extra vocals by Canadian MC Shad, adds more electronic Funk synth-lines and heavy drums. Gogetit a.s.a.p., because this one will be sold out quickly!
Sometimes surfing the net for new tunes can be a disappointing. Sometimes you’ll surf into surprises that make your day: like this one, found via 20jazzfunkgreats: A track called Union, by a guy named Saitam, bringing drums, gamelan and an ocean of sound to your ears. Getit.
Another SEE-A-SOUND participant (and soon to be releasing his SoFar EP on Fremdtunes, an EP on Up My Alley and a collabo with Memotone on Project Mooncircle), Glasgow producer Soosh, just joined Mixed Bizness for bookings worldwide. Read more about it!
