A new Fremdkunst EP touched down at Kitchen Dip Recordings!
Named ‘The Blue Marble’, this EP is once again an exploration of the outer-limits of the Fremdkunst-universe by DJ Mace (initiator of Fremdkunst and co-owner of Fremdtunes) and friends. Ambientlike soundscapes & robust beats – almost submerging in pools of glitches, reverb and samples, but always managing to keep floating on strong rhythmtracks and catchy melodies.
Special guests are Wiboud Burkens (on keys) and guitar-hero slash trumpeteer Shycop. Coco Bryce pulls out a set of breakbeats on his off-kilter remix of ‘Das Abendland ft Erwin Vann’ (of the Zauberschwein im krankenhaus album). Inspiration comes from the works of David Toop, Edvard Grieg, Arthur Schnitzler, Paul van Tongeren, Flexus, Lars von Trier, Z-Factor and others.
Produced, composed, written and mixed by DJ Mace
Additional synths on 1 and 4 by Wiboud Burkens
Trumpet & (additional) guitar on 2 and 3 by Tristan Driesenaar (Shycop)
Remix by Coco Bryce
Mastered by Incise
Artwork by Omar Radwan
