This is 2013 in a musical sense…it’s not a complete list, but these are 25 timeless, inspiring songs we discovered, re-discovered, had on constant repeat this year (through Youtube).
We also like to take this time out to send out an überbig ‘thank you’ to you and yours; for your massive support, your time and patience, your declarations of love. It was one hell of ride again and we sure hope to treat you to much more tunes, art and other Fremdness in 2014. Have an explosive ‘jaarwisseling’ and we’ll meet again next year!
While 2013 is drawing to a close, we’re looking back at this year’s releases. One we should definitely mention is ‘Disconnected Repeater‘ by Big Mister Doom. More mellow than their previous work and a production style that’s as detailed as always (or even more), the duo’s second EP for Fremdtunes is an ingenious mixture of downtempo leftfield hiphop and deeply textured electronic music. With Planes and Huess providing remixes and a guest-appearance by iET ‘Disconnected Repeater’ needs to be rewinded….
So, 2013 is drawing to a close, so it’s time for us to take a trip down last year’s releases. The next two weeks we’ll shine our light on these records and today we tell off ‘Paragon‘. Julian Edwardes‘ bright and sparkling piece of art filled with quirky beats, exotic sounds, glitches, bumps, bass and punchy drums. Featuring remixes by Big Mister Doom and Ben Butler & Mousepad Released on February 25 and resulting in another Julian Edwardes release, namely ‘The Grinder’ (ft an E.R.P. remix) together with Shipwrec. Rewind, have fun (again)!
Reprogram song number 2! Published through Rappamelo, Big Mister Doom present their beautiful, stretched out, deeply textured remix for London-based beatsmith Planes’ (a.k.a. Point B) song ‘Mind Reader‘. Superelectric made the artwork and created a small animated loop, which he looped…enjoy! Read more about Reprogram here.
Kick off! Today we’re proudly kickstarting our brand new project REPROGRAM with the release of the first track of this remix compilation. The raw material comes from Emufucka‘s ‘Orbit Unlimited’ and is remixed by Julian Edwardes. Designer/graffiti-king Zedz composed smashing new artwork for this canto of rough- and sweetness and you can download the complete work of art at XLR8R!.
Big Mister Doom, the dynamic duo from Manchester who just brought you their EP ‘Disconnected Repeater‘, did an exclusive mix for the excellent Dutch e-zine/blog Eclectro. The mix includes new and old material by BMD and remixes for artists like Muskoaka, Huess, OptiMace and Umber. Get introduced!
One’s done by Planes (a.k.a. Point B), who pilots ‘Genus‘ with mighty bass-driven beats into a new aerospace. Planes just finished his phenomenal 3-track EP ‘Mind Reader’ (here you’ll find some soundbytes) and will be released on March 27.
