RELEASEDATES

November 11, 2011

Plans are made. Scheduled releases are re-scheduled and re-re-scheduled and now 2011 is coming to an end and, logically, 2012 is coming closer, we think it’s time to update you on our upcoming releasedates.

First of all: 12/24/2011 OptiMace – The future is not what it used to be – part 1 (7″). The first one in the OptiMace remix-series ‘The future is not what it used to be’ with remixes by Big Mister Doom, KRSUR and Illy Symphony. Pre-order now at Rush Hour! Or send an e-mail to info@fremdtunes.com and we’ll let you know how to get one (we only pressed 150 copies, so be quick). On 12/05/2011 we shall release Fremdkunst‘s ‘Like Zauberhulk’ (free digital), the last in the EP-series ‘Zauberschwein im krankenhaus’. It’s a little bit more ‘Frankenstein‘ than it is ‘Cinderella’ and a whole lot more ‘PE’ than it is ‘Hans Dulfer’, but you’ll still hear a little bit of Cyndi-Lauper-sings-words-by-François-de-La-Rochefoucauld- soul oozing through the crackling, grating and stamping.

The new year starts with a blast, when we release on 01/19/2012 Pierce Warnecke’s ‘The Machine Regrets’. A spectacular glitched up, melodic, beatheavy mini-album by Berlin-based Warnecke with remixes by Baron Retif & Concepcion Perez, Big Mister Doom & Kelpe (12″/digital) and artwork by Mister Adam & Superelectric. Also in January we start our SEE-A-SOUND expo at bkkc, Tilburg, and we will release the associated album on 01/27/2012. Big Mister Doom will soon follow on 02/06/2012 with their debut EP on Fremdtunes (digital). This one includes two outstanding tracks by Leeds-based producers Ian & Joe and remixes by Pierce Warnecke & OptiMace ft iET (digital). Further more: Japanese youngster Emufucka exposes his ‘Planar Rift’ EP to the world on 03/22/2012. Expect experimental, up- and downtempo beats and remixes by DZA & St. Andrew on this digital release.

Than there’s some classic material by Kid Sundance in the making, Coco Bryce is working on groundbreaking beats and ofcourse Soosh (with remixes by Jameszoo and Kelpe) will release his SoFar EP in the near future. And there’s much, much more coming up… But that’s another story…


WEATHER FREMDCAST 4102011

October 4, 2011

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). So you can imagine we’re pierced by a tsunami of electronic goodies. Stay up to date, so we can inform you about this upcoming release…

In the meantime, Rotterdam-based label Redrum (run by Mike Redman) released The Underground Hits part 2. This collection of hardcore, underground tracks includes the smashing ‘Pound for pound’ by DJ Optimus ft Prince Po and work by DJ Grazzhoppa, Terilekst, Ill Productionz, Git Hyper & Duvel, Eni-less, Mike Redman and many others. Some more on other labels: after we just published our Fremdblend 3 mix (blended by Mister Critical) on Laid Back Radio, Kitchen Dip Recordings publish their Acoustic Cuisine #2 on Laid Back. Two good reasons (and there’s a whole lot more) to become familiar with Laid Back Radio!

We also charted some old and new tunes on our Juno chart: my link to juno records
