Kick off! Today we’re proudly kickstarting our brand new project REPROGRAM with the release of the first track of this remix compilation. The raw material comes from Emufucka‘s ‘Orbit Unlimited’ and is remixed by Julian Edwardes. Designer/graffiti-king Zedz composed smashing new artwork for this canto of rough- and sweetness and you can download the complete work of art at XLR8R!.
Reprogram involves 16 tracks that were previously released through Fremdtunes and are remixed and published online as a string of free downloads. One by one these tracks will be shared through various platforms in a period of a few weeks. Every song will get new artwork made by a renowned graphic designer. The whole album will be available via Bandcamp on November 23rd. Stay up-to-date through our Reprogram-release-page or Facebook.
Emufucka’s ‘Orbit Unlimited‘ appeared on Emufucka‘s EP ‘Retrace’ (2012). Takafumi Sakurai aka Emufucka hails from Tokyo and is a true future beat wizard. His blissful electronica-fuelled rhythm sculptures have already created a decent buzz amongst today’s worldwide beats & bass scene. He collaborated with Count Bass D, DZA, Quarta330, My Dry Wet Mess and Coco Bryce among others, joined Red Bull Music Academy in 2013 and signed singles and EPs to imprints such as Alpha Pup, Citywurl and of course Fremdtunes.
The remixer in charge, Julian Edwardes (Breda, NL) is another true beat wizard. Inspired by artists like Flying Lotus, Tortoise and Mouse on Mars, Edwardes re-samples, chops and screws sounds coming from ancient synths and 21st century machines and arranges them in his eccentric musical constructions. His tracks were remixed by artists like Ben Butler & Mousepad, Big Mister Doom, E.R.P., Planes and Pierce Warnecke.
Zedz‘s (NL/IT) graffiti art has developed over the last 25 years. The ‘duo’ works as independent artists on different disciplines, while one works basically underground the other is infiltrating the art scene.
