Plans are made. Scheduled releases are re-scheduled and re-re-scheduled and now 2011 is coming to an end and, logically, 2012 is coming closer, we think it’s time to update you on our upcoming releasedates.
The new year starts with a blast, when we release on 01/19/2012 Pierce Warnecke’s ‘The Machine Regrets’. A spectacular glitched up, melodic, beatheavy mini-album by Berlin-based Warnecke with remixes by Baron Retif & Concepcion Perez, Big Mister Doom & Kelpe (12″/digital) and artwork by Mister Adam & Superelectric. Also in January we start our SEE-A-SOUND expo at bkkc, Tilburg, and we will release the associated album on 01/27/2012. Big Mister Doom will soon follow on 02/06/2012 with their debut EP on Fremdtunes (digital). This one includes two outstanding tracks by Leeds-based producers Ian & Joe and remixes by Pierce Warnecke & OptiMace ft iET (digital). Further more: Japanese youngster Emufucka exposes his ‘Planar Rift’ EP to the world on 03/22/2012. Expect experimental, up- and downtempo beats and remixes by DZA & St. Andrew on this digital release.
Than there’s some classic material by Kid Sundance in the making, Coco Bryce is working on groundbreaking beats and ofcourse Soosh (with remixes by Jameszoo and Kelpe) will release his SoFar EP in the near future. And there’s much, much more coming up… But that’s another story…
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.

We are very proud to let you know that British artist Kelpe (pronounce: Kelp) will release on November 22nd 2010 a 4 track EP (12″/33rpm) called “Chocolate Money” on Fremdtunes. Title track “Chocolate Money” sounds like a forgotten Turkish funk gem, with a saz twanging into the foreground over a backdrop of burbling moogs and heavy percussion. “Goldfishing”, with its metallic synths and staccato rhythms has enough itchy urgency to compel any listener into some impromptu body-popping. On the flipside Kelpe has enlisted the talents of two of his favourite producers: Huess (Inaudible Answer) + Coco Bryce (Harmonia / Lowriders / Myor / Fremdtunes) to rework both A side tracks into their own inimitable stylings. Huess instigates some bizarre twisted Bhangra while Coco Bryce creates an cheekily addictive marimba hook that turns “Goldfishing” into something entirely different. The coverdesign is by Mister Adam. Rushhour will distribute the vinyl:
Skweee-master, funky-man and electronic-barbarian Coco Bryce just released a 45rpm/7inch single on his label ‘Myor’ together with Slow Hand Motem as Light Club. The EP is called ‘Night Bulbs Ep’. The four tracks are like a soundtrack to a 8bit, glitched-up futuristic version of Lost Highway being edited with shots of Less than zero…anyway: make sure you get a copy! The EP is distributed by Rubadub (not yet available though). For now, go get y0ur digital version at http://myor.bandcamp.com/album/night-bulbs-ep - it includes some extra remixes! And ofcourse we like to mention: mister Coco Bryce will release his first full length LP on Fremdtunes on February 14th 2011. Besides this upcoming release, Coco did more work for Fremdtunes: he did a remix for Kelpe’s ‘Chocolate Money EP’ and also made a remix for Fremdkunst’s ‘Zauberschwein by candlelight EP’.
