Dutch producer/dj Kid Sundance will release his solo album Kid’s Colors in August 2012. A modern variant on the 70s and 80s library records and a mix of jazzy hip hop, funk, a pinch of afro & Brasil and early 80s synth-sounds. To complement the release, there’s an actual coloring contest!
Of course the upcoming 12″ record needs an eye-popping sleeve. Graphic designer Mr. Adam and illustrator DEES kicked off with a black and white version, but the colors and completion are up to you. Download the cover below and paint it on your laptop, iPad or home computer. Even better: color it analog with the use of pencils, brushes or any other material you can think of.
Send the result to Fremdtunes before June 15th. The most eye-catching submission will be used for the final cover and the winner will be rewarded with a prize package: your name on the record, Kid’s Colors on 12″ vinyl and a Fremdtunes shirt. Besides that, the runner-up gets a free Fremdtunes shirt and all submissions will be featured on Fremdtunes’ website.
Kid Sundance has been a household name in the Dutch hip hop/music scene since the mid-80s. He worked with Dudley Perkins and Busy Bee and shared the stage with well-known jazz artists such as Benjamin Herman and Anton Goudsmit. And ‘the Kid’ released music on the superb Japanese label Jazzy Sport. His style is raw, atmospheric, on the edge of tradition and experiment.
