Emufucka - Orbit Unlimited remix

Words: Chris Kokiousis ( XLR8R )

Fremdtunes, a Dutch electronic label, has a new project in the works titled Reprogram, on which 16 previously released tracks by label artists like Coco Bryce and Kelpe will receive the remix treatment. And each of the new remixes will initially debut as a free download with unique artwork, culminating in an official Bandcamp release of the complete album. Today, we have the pleasure of premiering Julian Edwardes' rich, melodic revision of "Orbit Unlimited," a slice of bright, bass-focused sounds from Tokyo's Emufucka. Edwardes massages the original production into a moodier, funky cut filled with warbling synths that intermittently sputter and overload, like a genteel take on new dubstep tropes. But the radiant synth layers eventually win out, shining the original melody through a symphonic prism.

Moeland Remixes

Last summer Omi EKP scored a theatre project named ‘Moeland’ which kicked up a fair amount of dust. Now there’s the Moeland Remixes, with 9 very capable producers each presenting their take on one of the original pieces. Styles on the Moeland Remixes vary from drone (B van Heerden), heavy electronics (Julian Edwardes, GBoah, Eigenheimer), instrumental hiphop (Frietboer) , to the tropical sounds of the Bomb Diggy Crew, the very danceable, hipster friendly breakbeats of Coco Bryce and Motëm and possibly even more danceable four-to-the-floor expeditions by Esolar and Stavaro Blowfeldt.

Also check out Omi EKP’s original ‘Moeland’ score via enigstkind.bandcamp.com/album/de-moeland-ep and his rap record ‘Terug Naar Planeet Rock’, released on Frietboerism last February.
