Happy Newyear! We kick 2015 off with another Fremdsession…part deux!
The Fremdsessions 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 will 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 practice session by Mace (turntables, production) & Vincent (drums, bass), experimenting with old & new sounds including Violofoon recordings played by Janneke Franke.

Proudly we present: Zibaldone! The 7th EP Kool DJ Mace releases as Fremdkunst. On Zibaldone, Mace builds on shreds of previous releases and new compositions while navigating the Fremdkunst spacecraft into well-known and unknown territory. With the help of Shycop (guitar), Wiboud Burkens (keys), Erwin Vann (sax + fx) and Vincent den Hengst (drums) Mace composed an otherworldly sonic patchwork. Besides being inspired by Giacomo Leopardi’s extensive intellectual ‘notebook’ called Zibaldone, he took influence from recordings of NYC parkjams in the 70’s, cold nights on bald mountains, Lindy-hoppers, Suspiria, Verner Panton, expressionism and dilla-ism. Artwork is done by
Mister Adam. The EP is mastered by Budy Mokoginta (Mokosound).
Get it now at Beatport, Bleep, Boomkat, Clone, iTunes, Junodownload, Digital Tunes, Spotify etc.
