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.
As we mentioned before: November 24rd 2011 we’ll release the tremendously limited 7″ OptiMace, the future is not what it used to be – part 1. Big Mister Doom, KRSUR and Illy Symphony did a great job on the music, as did Mister Adam on the artwork. Plus: we’ve uploaded snippets on soundcloud:
Meanwhile, at Fremdtunes HQ, we’re looking ahead and can tell you: 2012 is going to be stacked with new music coming from Pierce Warnecke, Soosh, Kelpe, Big Mister Doom, Baron Retif & Concepcion Perez, Kid Sundance, Moods, Emufucka, Coco Bryce and many more. But before we’re sucked into the new year, Fremdkunst will release the last EP in the series ‘Zauberschwein im krankenhaus‘ called ‘Like Zauberhulk’ in December 2011.
To finish this post, we’ll update you on some new music: another nice, free download by Coco Bryce – Be Mine, must-have, upcoming release by Sina on Project Mooncircle, new, superb drum ‘n bass by Relay & Front out on Rub A Duck soon and make sure you’ll download this: http://swiftmusic.bandcamp.com/album/super-feelers.
