Today it’s been a year since we put out our first physical release, Fremdkunst: b-beats & soundscapes. To celebrate this event we’ve uploaded a bonus version of the track ’2nd of June’ for you to download (for free!). The song was also used in the above viral and features DJ Optimus, DJ Vindictiv and Mete Erker.
While Mister Critical just finished Fremdbend 3.0 for us (available next week!) and OptiMace is working on another Wax Poetics mix, Buddy Peace just uploaded a megamix of London-based beatmaster Kelpe, which you definitely should listen to. It shows why Kelpe is a true unique player in the field of electronic-beatstrumentalists. http://kelpe.bandcamp.com/. Besides that, it’s an excellent mix.
So, this should do it for today. Have a good weekend!
A new release on Fremdtuns coming up! Berlin-based audiophile Pierce Warnecke releases his digital single ‘The Machine Serves’ on October 3rd 2011. This single preludes his forthcoming EP ‘The Machine Regrets’ and introduces the listener to the beatstrumental universe of Pierce Warnecke.

Pierce Warnecke has been creating digital material since his studies at Berklee College of Music. Inspired by the interactions between humans and machines, scientific research and complex data structures, he works as a programmer to find alternate ways of integrating sound, video, light and data into performance/installation contexts. He also is a sound designer for a well known music software company. Warnecke previously did remixes for Kelpe (one on FR2010-03 digital), released music on BEE Recordings and performed in Europe and the US with different audio- and audiovisual projects.
Today, it’s independence day, so we could tell you to ‘stay independent’ and celebrate the indie- and diy-culture, but that’s something we’d like you to decide for yourself. Instead, we celebrate the release of ‘Yield & continue’ by Dutch producer Saccage. This release (digital only!) is available on downloadstores like Boomkat, Digital Tunes, Juno & Addictech. Saccage produced two jazzed-up Hip Hop tracks for this debut. ‘Security of misfortune’ dips the listener’s brain in a wistful voyage, while ‘Let it go’ has MC Rude-D distributing some nice, direct vocals on a downtempo Hip Hop beat. Belgium’s finest 40 Winks (Project Mooncircle) remixed ‘Security of misfortune’ and turned it into an authentic tour the force. Coco Bryce (Myor/Fremdtunes) ft DJ Mace remixed ‘Monkey business’ in his perpetual effective way.
Saccage earlier released some great tracks. One of ‘m (together with USA mc Incense) ended up on Tropical Heat Volume 1 by Myor: get this record here. In 2007, Saccage released a limited split EP with Rude-D. There’s only a few copies left: order these here.
We put together a mix for Wax Poetics (one of the greatest musicmagazines since the birth of Christ): reflecting Fremdtunes’ flavor with a soulful, funky, electronic, and beat-heavy trip.
