Greece's Spyweirdos, who received a lot of attention in the recent years for his sharp and subtle glitchy electronica, pairs up this time with the two improv / free jazz musicians John Mourjopoulos and Floros Floridis. The three give birth to a surprisingly human, warm and catchy game of clicks, horns and strings. Deep, abrasive, but funky at parts: no surprise that the live rendition of this album have received excellent reviews. (Get this on CD / as mp3).
Announced with the "Huge Samurai Radish" single and remix CD in December 2007, Ra(oul Sinier)'s third studio album is follows up and builds upon the material of his previous "Wxfdswxc2" (released on Sublight). Intricate melodies, gritty undertones, imaginative structures are thrown into a canvas of IDM and electronic hip-hop, forming a tasty and tasty whole. (Get this on CD / as mp3)
Chevron's intricate beats and party anthems get down and dirty with "Tuff Shite". Partly inspired by Chevron's hometown, and partly the result of his extensive live experience all throughout Europe, the six complex, crisp and tongue-in-cheek tracks presented here are also a lot more than just "tuff". Upbeat and clear, the A side displays (again, as if necessary) Chevron's talent for complex rhythms and catchy melodies. Flip the record, and the B side delivers the dancefloor-packing tracks, where jungle, hardcore and breakcore collide in a tasty and incisive way. Welcome to Blackpool, don't let the comets hit you on the way to the club. (Get this on 12" / as mp3).
Coming just in time for their tour throughout Europe, "Pillaged & Plundered" is a clear statement of what the crowds should expect. On the one side, The Teknoist throws in two new tracks of the excellent and tasty breed of breakcore, gabber and metal which has made of him one of Europe's most sought after producer of the genre. On their side, Eustachian opens wide the gates of Hell, mashing up grindcore, breakcore and noise with a brutality and ingenuity rarely seen so far. Watch out, these guys are after you sanity.

From its symphonic opening to its sweeping heavy basses, Cakebuilder's second record for Ad Noiseam shows that things are still deep in Winnipeg. Bridging angry, dark dubstep and a highly melodic drive, Cakebuilder opens a new gate for the genre, where "dub" is replaced by something a lot colder and orchestral. Cinematic dubstep of the blackest shade. (Get this on 12" / as mp3)
Mothboy is back and brought his friends Starkey and Lapsed & Nonnon with him for this return to heavy bass lines and club-filling beats. With a clean but massive A side and a grime-oriented flip, Ad Noiseam's favouritee London heavyweight wrecks subwoofers once again and shows that he's at the top of his games and ready to fill dancefloors.

Re-mastered, re-cut and given a whole record on their own, the four tracks written by Enduser and Line 47 back in 2003 get a second life on Ad Noiseam. Ranging from the most aggressive and noisy breakcore to melodic, syncopated material, the material on this record shows both producers at the top of their form and still is, 5 years after their original release on Sonicterror, a pearl of the breakcore scene.

With “Stab City”, Math Head finally presents on wax a new testimony of his insolent skills at creating ever changing, massive dubstep. Never loosing the dancefloor from its sight, but including a lot of innovative elements to this genre and not afraid of mixing the club appeal with wider sensibilities, he comes up here again with a highly impressive record that does justice to his extensive talent. Here comes highly efficient, fresh and hard dubstep record you have been waiting for. (Get this on 12" / as mp3)
More than just dubstep: Funckarma make this genre theirs and re-write its foundation anew with this barrier-breaking record. Heavy but sharp, clear but dub-influenced, mid-tempo but infectious, the second volume of Funckarma's take on the dubstep genre is a new take at one of today's dominant genre by unequalled producers.
