‘LIKE ZAUBERHULK’ OUT NOW!

Exactly one year ago we released the free ‘Zauberschwein by candlelight’ EP by Fremdkunst. This was the first in a series called ‘Zauberschwein im krankenhaus’. After the release of part 2 ‘O sweet schwein of mine‘ in June, it’s time to bring the series to a closure with ‘Like Zauberhulk‘‘Like Zauberhulk’ is a 6-track EP and one more time DJ Mace and friends explore the outer-limits of the nihilistic Fremdkunst-universe.

DJ Mace, initiator of Fremdkunst, takes on ‘Like Zauberhulk’ care of most of the productions. Vindictiv produced the bone-shattering ‘Kees de Rauwe Bonk’. DJ Optimus produced the nerve-wrecking remix of ‘Elodie Sanson’. Special guests are saxophone magician Erwin Vann on ‘Das Abendland’ and key-player Freq on ‘Occupy Utopia’. The bonus-track ‘Lab & Live’ includes live-recordings of a performance by Fremdkunst in 2010 with DJ’s Mace, Optimus and Vindictiv, guitar-hero Shycop, Baba Sissoko (percussion, vocals) and trumpeter Eric Vloeimans. As usual, the magnificent Mister Adam created the artwork. Inspiration comes from the works of Charles Taylor (the Canadian), Drive, The Occupy Movement, A. Schopenhauer, D’Angelo, Nelson George, The Snail, Lars Svendsen, Skateboard Kings and Gustave Flaubert.

OPTIMACE – USED FUTURE EP

Fremdkunst related artists dj’s Mace and Optimus (together OptiMace) will release their EP ‘Used Future’ on April 18th on vinyl. The digital version of the début EP  is out now! The EP is the result of an intensive cooperation between the two, using all types of equipment like vintage samplers & synthesizers, fx-pedals, turntables, ‘ordinary’ instruments and materials like stoves and brushes. OptiMace created a playful mixture of dusty, jazzy beats, electronics and soundscapes. The two, who also combine forces in label Fremdtunes, invited Belgium saxophone player Erwin Vann to add some mind-blowing brass to the tracks. The digital version comes with a bonus-track, Flash, featuring DJ Vindictiv. Rush Hour distributes the vinyl (out on 04/18/2011). The artwork is done by Klaas Verplancke and Mister Adam.

Order the digital release (mp3/wav) right here: Boomkat,  Digital Tunes, DJ Tunes, iTunes, Juno

THE COMPOSITIVE TWO REMIX EP

Our Belgium friends The Compositive Two just released their brand new Compositive Thoughts Remix EP.  It’s a great EP full of dubstep, funk, hiphop and electronics. Nice to know: Fremdkunst (production by DJ Mace & additional sounds and main cuts by DJ Vindictiv) did a remix too! Here’s what The Compositive Two have to say about it themselves: “At first we never intended to have our tracks remixed. But after 2 of the remixers involved in this project offered to rework a track of our “compositive thoughts” album, we decided to ask around for other producers who might be interested to do the same. The result is now available as a free download for you to enjoy ! Spread the word and thx for listening…”
