Enduser - Even Weight - adn150
Enduser - Even WeightAfter years of waiting and expectations, Enduser finally comes back with a new album. This towering artist of the drum'n'bass and breakcore scene comes up here with an extremely important and soulful album in which his hard breaks and beats share the stage with much gentler melodies and atmospheres. A highly emotional album whose palette ranges from melancholy to rage, it is a new awe-inspiring album by a musician which proves again that his talent is multidimensional, humane and essential.

Hecq - Enceladus - adn149
Image A follow-up of sort to "Sura", "Enceladus" is another evolution for Hecq: his pristine dubstep gets enriched here with even more encompassing soundscapes and humane melodies. Collaborating with Skyence on the title track, Hecq has given birth to a very coherent record mixing cinematic atmospheres, huge percussions and a light nod to retro tonalities. Add to this a mischievous crunk remix by Knight Riderz and a dancefloor explosion by Mobthrow, and you get a compact yet exhaustive snapshot of Hecq's unmissable talent.

Detritus - Everyday Explanations - adn148
ImageWith "Everyday Explanations", Detritus doesn't only come back from a short-lived retirement but also operates a strong shift toward more home-listening material. Profound enough to lose yourself in and focusing on atmospheres rather than on beats, this album is the one in which Detritus's obsessive care for the details is best put to use and results in the what is surely this artist's most surprising, personal and subtle release to date.

Igorrr - Poisson Soluble / Moisissure - adn147

Igorrr - Poisson Soluble / Moisissure - adn147While we wait for Igorrr to bring a sequel to his remarkable and praised "Nostril" album, here comes a extensive (and budget priced) re-release of his first two albums, originally self-released. These 25 tracks document this musician's past and provide us with new tunes mixing classical baroque, cut up dubstep, metal sensibilities and sheer insanities. Igorrr has now become an essential name for everybody into extreme music, and he shows us here how he got there. An unmissable document. (Get this on double CD / as digital files)

Raoul Sinier - Guilty Cloaks - adn146
ImageRaoul Sinier's fifth full length album sees this musician surprise us again, and tap on his experience to offer an album in which tracks have become songs, tricky arrangements leave room for melodies, and, most of all, vocals are brought to the front stage. A seductive work, "Guilty Cloaks" stays deeply rooter in this artist's twisted and falsely na├»ve imagery, but approaches its listener in a much more humane and communicative way, mixing electronic composition with subtle song-writing, maturity and excitement.

The Teknoist - Trainwreck Magnetism - adn145

The Teknoist - Trainwreck Magnetism - Ad Noiseam adn145The Teknoist is back, and he has a posse. "Trainwreck Magnetism" not only gathers the newest composition by one of the rare musicians who can combine the words "breakcore" and "pristine", but also his remixes for high profile friends such as Drumcorps, King Cannibal, Hecq and others. It's hard (very), sometimes dark, often angry, but also particularly varied. A highly rewarding album which satisfy both the urge to thrash around and the need for carefully crafted music, The Teknoist's new full-length is another crown for this pillar of the breakcore and hardcore sounds.

Wormskull - Sound Of Hell - adn144

Wormskull - Sound Of Hell - Ad Noiseam adn144First, Wormskull is an all star band formed by Bong-Ra, Deformer, Balazs Pandi and Eni-Less. But it's also a full frontal sonic assault that taps from years of experience in the metal and electronic scenes to come up with a high-energy, moshpit-packing devil of an album. Don't believe what you were told: it's not a team of Soviet scientists who recorded the sounds of hell, but a quartet of angry, experienced musicians who love their metal dark, their beats punishing, and their atmospheres abysmal. Heavy riffs, complex drumming, electronic arrangements that have their roots in Bong-Ra's breakcore: Wormskull is nothing for the weak of heart. (get this on LP + CD / on CD / as digital files)

Hecate - Brew Hideous Remixes - adn143

Hecate - Brew Hideous Remixes - Ad Noiseam adn143Truth through diversity: Hecate breaks a long period of silence with an EP on which four of her closest collaborators get to remix and mash up material from her "Brew Hideous" album. From the fast paced breakcore of the Amboss and Vile Enginez remixes to the solemnity of the White Darkness (a.k.a. Bong-Ra) and Slutmachine ones, Hecate's music gets revealed and amplified under each of its aspect. Let is be heard that the reigning queen of breakcore is back, not alone, and with a vengeance.

Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker - Fraktals - adn142

Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker - FraktalsThe renowned detailled and personal production of Balkansky (a.k.a. COOH) meet the rage and insolence of the young Loop Stepwalker, resulting in a powerful record which puts rawness back into dubstep. "Fraktals", the first collaborative release between these two artists, is an energy-packed and original record which will fit perfectly alongside Broken Note or Niveau Zero both on the dancefloor and on turntables. Dirty but subtle, hard but balanced: the first step of an exciting path. (get this on 12" / as mp3)

Mobthrow - Mobthrow - adn141

Mobthrow - Mobhtrow - adn141Though subtle and humane, Mobthrow's debut album is a larger-than-life experience, an elaborate and detailled ensemble of scalding beats and encompassing atmospheres, of massive basses and flowing voices. This artist offers us a very cohesive entity ranging from dancefloor-compatible drum'n'bass to introspective home-listening songs, the whole thing stuck together by his consistent work on rhythms and tones. We're here listening to an album in the truest sense of the word, a guided adventure through an adventurous and perfectly put together concept. (get this on CD / as digital file)
