Out now (November 1 2010)! Fremdtunes – the series 1: the first official Fremdtunes label-sampler with tracks by Coco Bryce (ft Gumshoe, Incks & Mace), DJ Optimus, Kid Sundance (ft Rescue) & Solo Moderna. Fremdtunes – the series shows a cross-section of the diverse music-styles the label focusses on. Spherical hiphop as well as dubby funkstep appear on this 4-track 12” vinyl piece. Although the tracks vary in style, all artists share a similar love for the art of cut-and-paste and are all known for being DJ ánd producer. Order this vinyl piece directly at Rushhour or go to your local recordstore and ask for this 12″. The artwork is done by the unstoppable Mister Adam and Superelectric, who were as a duo also responsible for the fantastic Fremdkunst viral video.
