Kool DJ Mace (initiator of Fremdkunst and co-chief at Fremdtunes) presents the brand new EP ‘Human Beings May Be Zombies’ by Fremdkunst.
DJ Mace once more explores the outer-limits of the nihilistic, beatheavy Fremdkunst-universe. Mace took influence from old school hiphop, Dutch boogie, freejazz, Trax-classics, field recordings from the African continent, the timid singing of French divas, ‘talking blues’ records and present-day electronic music. Inspiration comes from the works of Daniel Denett, Alfred Hitchcock and Stendhal. Musicians who provided sounds-to-chop are Erwin Vann, Wiboud Burkens and Shycop. The EP is mastered by the emaculate Jolie Nabokov and once again, Mister Adam provides the funkdafied artwork.

Fremdkunst was initiated by Kool DJ Mace in 2004, as a sequel to the earlier Zarathustra-works and as an exhaust for his love for beats, jazz, hiphop, vintage synths, improvisation, philosophy and literature. Inspired by the early D.I.T.C. & Paul C sound and works of Nietzsche & Chamfort, Mace created a mixture of hard-hitting beats with cinematographic vibes and melodies. On the first Fremdkunst demo (2006/2007) Mace combined jazz, surf, old school house and other musical styles with hiphop/breakbeats. To complete the first official Fremdkunst album (2010) Mace worked with DJ Optimus, Shycop, Mete Erker and others.
Live Fremdkunst consists of DJ Mace usually accompanied by guest-musicians, mixing pounding beats, high-powered scratch-works, shuddering soundscapes and live electronics. Fremdkunst performed at Festival Mundial, Popronde, Ekko, Onderstroom etc. and shared the stage with artists like Baba Sissoko, Eric Vloeimans, Jeroen van Vliet, Erwin Vann and The Sensi Thieves.
