Dust On Snow is a collaborative musical project, an agitated and frothing monster created by poet, musician, performance artist & collage artist, Brad Hamers (Portland, OR/NYC) and beat-maker/producer, Frietboer (Netherlands). On their 8 track debut EP, Brad Hamers (Phlegm, Two Ton Sloth, The New Police) provides the words and Frietboer (Frietboerism 1/5, Fiks, Fris & Dood) supplies the beats. Created back and forth over the internet (between The Netherlands and Portland, OR) in the course of a year, their debut EP, You Were Murdered As A Kid is 25 minutes of heavy, hard-hitting, head-nodding mayhem. YWMAAK was later Remastered and Released on Cassette in 2018 by Barreuh Records out of The Netherlands.  Frietboer and Brad joined forces again in 2019 with the Single release of Artax, followed with an accompanying Music Video created by jdaugh in 2020 (The video is an official selection at 13 fim festivals worldwide, so far. This time Artax makes it out of the Swamp of Sadness alive!  In 2020 Brad also released a new book of poetry, The Humming Prole. Frietboer chose a handful of poems from Brad’s recently published book and asked him to record himself reading them. Brad then sent Frietboer the acappellas and Frietboer created sound design for each piece. Leading up to the release Shrine13 also dropped accompanying Video Collages for each track, made by JDaugh and Brad Hamers. Check all DOS work out below:
