On November 23, Dutch label Fremdtunes will release Reprogram, a collection of remixed tracks originally appearing on the label. Over the last couple of weeks, eight of these remixes have been premiered on different platforms and we’re more than happy to bring you the ninth.
Club Tropicana is the title track of the last Coco Bryce album released in March, and it has been reprogrammed by his label mate, the Eindhoven-based producer Jay Hats. Fremdtunes released his debut Birds in June 2013, a genre-defying EP inspired by the sounds of the rainforest (also check out this mixtape).
The other aspect of the Reprogram series is its visual side. Each and every track receives an artwork of its own, and for the ninth track it’s Dutch designer Bas Koopmans aka Baster. Also available in animated form.
Radio presenter, DJ and overall great person Mamiko Motto teamed up with our favourite Irish label All City (well, that’s an easy, if not an obvious pick) to put out a new compilation. Titled Amada, I guess you can call it a spiritual successor to the Beat Dimensions compilations — on the terms of 2013. So it’s maybe no suprise to find the likes of James Pants, Mwëslee or Dorian Concept are among the 13 featured artists. And since there’s still no word about the (supposedly finished) album from the latter, we’re more than happy to present his track off the compilation.
Amada will be in stores on November 8, 2013 and it will be available on vinyl, CD and (wild guess) digital.
Wow, it’s been —almost to the day— two years since we last heard an original Floating Points production, but he’s making it up with 11 minutes of the most enchanting music. The track is one of the exclusives taken from the forthcoming Eglo Records Vol. 1, a 2-CD compilation celebrating the label’s fourth anniversary. It will be in stores at the end of this month on April 29th and there’ll also be a little celebration in June at London’s Jazz Cafe. I’ve been wondering if the track above should be labeled Floating Points Ensemble, but it’s too hard to decipher on the press shots and I haven’t found a tracklist yet.
