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).

A brand new OptiMace video, the release of ‘Double Helix DNA’ by DJ Optimus and an upcoming digital EP by Saccage and Fremdkunst…beaucoup de news concerning Fremdtunes. But, of course, there’s more out there in the field of music.
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!
