Release descriptionrelease write-up » On 'The Blue Marble' DJ Mace (initiator of Fremdkunst and co-owner of Fremdtunes) and friends explore, once again, the outer-limits of the Fremdkunst-universe.
Challenging the blue, empty vastness of this nihilistic universe with ambientlike soundscapes & robust beats and at the same time expressing the density of love for everything that's close. 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.
Fremdkunst was initiated by DJ Mace in 2004, as a sequel to the earlier Zarathustra-works and as an exhaust for his love for beats, jazz, hip-hop, vintage synths, philosophy and literature. Inspired by the early D.I.T.C. & Paul C sound and works of Nietzsche & Chamfort, the Fremdkunst-tunes blend hard-hitting beats with cinematographic vibes and melodies. On the first Fremdkunst demo (2007) Mace combined jazz, surf, old school house and other musical styles with hip-hop/breakbeats. To complete the first official Fremdkunst album (2010) Mace worked with DJ's Optimus and Vindictiv, Erwin Vann, Mete Erker and others. In 2010 and 2011 followed the 3 EP's 'Zauberschwein by Candlelight', 'O sweet schwein of mine' and 'Like Zauberhulk', finally combined om 'Zauberschwein im krankenhaus' (2012). Besides Fremdkunst, Mace also works with partner in crime on the project OptiMace (This music is not music, KDIP). The duo also runs label Fremdtunes on which they released music by artists like Kid Sundance, Emufucka, Julian Edwardes, Kelpe, Coco Bryce, Big Mister Doom and Pierce Warnecke.
