Until recently, I wasn’t familiar with Tokyo-based producer and RMBA alumni Emufucka, but his forthcoming release on the Dutch Fremdtunes label quickly caught my attention. Featuring a vocal track with the highly underrated Count Bass D, the 10-track Retrace EP comes with six originals plus remixes from My Dry Wet Mess, Jazzo & Melodiesinfonie, Coco Bryce and Quarta330 (of Hyperdub fame!) Let’s have a listen at what the latter two came up with:
All Fremdtunes releases are available from a number of outlets, this new one should follow on its release-date: September 24, 2012.
If you happen to be in Tokyo for the next weekend, you might want to consider dropping by at the Blip Festival. So if you’re into this whole culture of retrogaming, 8-bit sounds and blocky graphics, the festival should definitely be worth it.
Among the line-up are musicians Quarta330 (Hyperdub) and 8bitpeoples‘ Nullsleep, Bit Shifter, Stu and No Carrier. Each performance is backed up by international VJs and visual artists, check out some footage from previous installments of the festival.
A schedule for the festival is already available, tickets can be ordered on the website or from 8bitpeoples.
