In April we celebrated our second anniversary. And next Sunday (July 15) we will celebrate it ‘in the flesh’ at Bird, Rotterdam – during Street Science Festival.
We organized a record fair, where a bunch of great DJ’s (like Coco Bryce, Pathless, Frankadelic and OptiMace) will be spinning records. Plus: Mister Adam, Saskia Haex, Lucky Dubz and Hans Foks will create live artwork on blank record-covers.
We are also invited together with filmmaker/producer/label-owner/DJ Mike Redman (Redrum) to join the talk-show ‘Mybio’ the same day (starts at 17.30). Special guest DJ is our Swedish friend DJ Devastate.
When: July 15
Time: 13.00 – 21.00
Where: Bird, Rotterdam
Take a look at the complete program of Street Science!
On a regular bases we’re inviting talented, befriended DJ’s and/or radio-hosts to do a mix for our ‘Weather Fremdcast’. After previous mixes by Emufucka, Nifkin, R&R, Pathless, Frybread, Coco Bryce and Fine Cut Bodies, here comes number 9 by Big Mister Doom! A chilled out, cinematic mix with tracks by Bonobo, Soosh, Headshotboyz and many more.
Go ahead: listen…
Big Mister Doom are Leeds-based Ian Scott and Joe Wretham. In 2010 Big Mister Doom self-released their self-titled EP; a dense and articulate exploration of electronic music. Since then they’ve been remixing work of artists like Eskimo Twins, Muskoaka, Pierce Warnecke, OptiMace and Paper Tiger, working on live performances and preparing new material for 2012. They released their wonderful EP ‘Tinderbox‘ on Fremdtunes in February!
Speaking of Kid Sundance: he recently did an outstanding vinyl-only-mix called Latest Catch. It includes tunes by Francis Lai, Jacky Giordano, Jimmy Caravan, Aristides Santos, Bernard Purdie and others. Coco Bryce is back from his vacation in Morocco and made this excellent ‘Morocco mixtape‘. DJ Mace uploaded two old mixes to keep your ears occupied this week: one from 2005 called ‘Weer ‘s wat anders (side A)‘ featuring music by Sabrina, Prince, RJD2, Beastie Boys, The Beatles, The Meters and others. The other one’s called Hip Hop Mixed Tape part 1 (side A), created in 2001 and is filled with underground tracks by Freddie Foxx, Mr. Lif, Nextmen and others.
To conclude today’s Fremdcast: soon we shall publish Fremdblend 4.0, a mix filled with tracks of recent and upcoming releases. The other parts are still available on soundcloud and mixcloud:
Enjoy the weather!
