A lot of water falling from the sky, so it’s time for another Weather Fremdcast.
We’d like to kick off with some more news on SEE-A-SOUND. The first results (soundbites and sketches) of the collaborations are to be viewed/listend to on www.seeasound.com. Mister Adam and Coco Bryce ping-ponged chopped up audio-files and graphic forms. Boris Tellegen screen-printed, during the Dutch Design
Week, his reaction to DJ Mace’s dusty, offbeat sound-design. And it seems that Attak and Grazzhoppa formed a new superhero-team. Find out about the collaborations right here: http://seeasound.com/samenwerkingen/en/ and Thefindmag introduces you to the project right here.
First, we’d like to tell you about the official debut by Glasgow ranger Soosh: his first release is out on Fuselab/Alpha Pup Records. Soosh sounds like melodic abstract syrup with a good mixture of hip-hop and intricate soul. Infatuated with complex textures, floating rhythms and all post-post Soosh invites us to break from all the swag and boom-boom wonk-dom. Original, colorful and a definite must-have. Of course, such a talented fellow had to be invited by us for a release, so be prepared for his forthcoming EP on Fremdtunes.
Finest Ego (Project Mooncircle) monthly treats their listeners to a fine mix, this month it’s a mix by Pavel Dovgal from the Ukraine.

These last guy’s, from New Zealand, will perform at the De Melkweg (Amsterdam, NL) on July 15th alongside Ladi6 ft. Parks & Julien Dyne, Electric Wire Hustle, Benny Tones, Isaac Aesili and Pacific Riders to give you a taste of the future of electronic soul, funk and hip-hop. Electric Wire Hustle will also perform at Dour: the Belgium Festival has such a great line-up: do not miss!
