Fremdtunes is a Dutch independent music label & publisher. The main focus is on instrumental producer-based music, from triphop to dub to rare groove to hiphop, from funkjazz and skweee to electro and turntablism. Danceable music with beats that move both the crowd and critics.
Fremdtunes was initiated by Rogier van Hout (’s-Hertogenbosch) and Neels Smeekens (Rotterdam). These gentlemen combine over 30 years of experience as producers/DJ’s (as DJ Mace and DJ Optimus) in the hiphop-, beats- and jazzscene. Two alchemists who hover between composition and decompostion.
The result of their first musical cooperation as OPTIMACE will be released on April 11th 2011 (digital) and April 18th (vinyl): the EP USED FUTURE is a playful mixture of beats, jazz, fusion and soundscapes. The artwork of this release is done by Klaas Verplancke (concept & painting) and Mister Adam (graphic design).
