Kid’s Colors is the debut LP by Kid Sundance: a decisively original album, inspired by the library- and stockmusic compilations of the 70′s and 80′s. On Kid’s Colors Sundance combines beat-fueled Jazz, Funk-grooves, old school Hip Hop vibes and warm melodies. The use of vintage gear, exciting guest-appearances and the artist being picky about his samples, makes Kid’s Colors stand out as an illimitable musical trip. Kid Sundance has been active as a producer/DJ since the 80′s. He co-founded Hip Hop Group Boomoperators and worked with artists such as Busy Bee (Wildstyle) and Dudley Perkins (Stonesthrow).
Fremdtunes is a Dutch independent recordlabel, mainly focussing on beats- and groove-based, electronic music, ranging from Jazzy Boombap to Future Funk. So far, we worked with artists like DJ Optimus, Kelpe, Kid Sundance, Coco Bryce, Mister Adam, Jameszoo, El da Sensei, Erwin Vann, Pierce Warnecke, Superelectric, Klaas Verplancke and many others.

Mokosound just did a great job on the masters for the forthcoming mini-album ‘The Machine Regrets’ by Pierce Warnecke and Pierce uploaded the glitched up, mind-blowing title track to his previous single to his soundcloud page. The 8-track release (vinyl/digital) includes killer-remixes by Baron Retif & Concepcion Perez (FR), Big Mister Doom (UK) and Kelpe (UK).
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:
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:
So, enjoy the weather and stay tuned.
Half man, half machine? Or in the end, human, all too human? We virtually sat down with the man Pierce Warnecke who just released his digital single ‘The Machine Serves‘ on Fremdtunes and tried to get some insight on the man’s whereabouts, habitats, habits, methods and future-plans. So, here it is: the rough guide to Pierce Warnecke:
Pierce Warnecke, labeled as ‘one to watch, this fella’ on Boomkat, just released his digital single and already hit us with new material for his forthcoming EP (including remixes by Baron Retif & Concepcion Perez, Big Mister Doom & Kelpe).
