Rain, rain stay away…so, what’s the Weather Fremdcast for today?
Fremdkunst is currently finishing the third and last EP in the series ‘Zauberschwein im krankenhaus’, called ‘Like Zauberhulk’ and is probably going to be the most outrageous work by the Fremdkünstlers so far. On soundcloud you can preview the song, Lab & live, which is a mash-up of a rework and a live-version of the song ‘Nostos & Algos’. The live track was recorded in June 2010 and features DJ’s Mace, Optimus & Vindictiv, guitar player Shycop, Baba Sissoko on percussion & vocals and Eric Vloeimans on trumpet.
The man scratching ‘Oewieeee!’ in the above recording, DJ Vindictiv, is about to release with Dutch Hip Hop group 0118 a brand new album: read more about it (in Dutch) on: http://3voor12.vpro.nl/artikelen/artikel/45274062.
Good news from East Asia: we’ve just been going back and forth talking contracts with Japanese producer Emufucka and he’ll release new music on Fremdtunes in 2012. For now, you can check out some of his (previous) work on Belgium’s City Wurl and ofcourse his Soundcloud page.
PLUS: listen to our latest chart on Juno!

Today, it’s independence day, so we could tell you to ‘stay independent’ and celebrate the indie- and diy-culture, but that’s something we’d like you to decide for yourself. Instead, we celebrate the release of ‘Yield & continue’ by Dutch producer Saccage. This release (digital only!) is available on downloadstores like Boomkat, Digital Tunes, Juno & Addictech. Saccage produced two jazzed-up Hip Hop tracks for this debut. ‘Security of misfortune’ dips the listener’s brain in a wistful voyage, while ‘Let it go’ has MC Rude-D distributing some nice, direct vocals on a downtempo Hip Hop beat. Belgium’s finest 40 Winks (Project Mooncircle) remixed ‘Security of misfortune’ and turned it into an authentic tour the force. Coco Bryce (Myor/Fremdtunes) ft DJ Mace remixed ‘Monkey business’ in his perpetual effective way.
Saccage earlier released some great tracks. One of ‘m (together with USA mc Incense) ended up on Tropical Heat Volume 1 by Myor: get this record here. In 2007, Saccage released a limited split EP with Rude-D. There’s only a few copies left: order these here.
