2013 is reaching its end, but we're not letting you down, as we announce today our first release of 2014. Ad Noiseam is proud to welcome to the label the very taltented 2methyl (formerly known as 2methylbulbe1ol). His first release for Ad Noiseam, the "Orb" EP, will bear the catalog number adn175 and come out on vinyl and as digital files on February 17th, 2014. You can already pre-order it on 12" record and as mp3 or FLAC.
We will, of course, bring you more information and sounds about 2methyl's "Orb" in the coming weeks. Here is already a medley of the whole EP, an 8 minute snippet featuring excerpts from its four track. Scroll below to read more about it and see its artwork.
Ever-changing and ever progressing: over the course of a few years, 2methyl (formerly known as 2methylbulbe1ol) has become something of a well kept secret. With only a few records (including one on Peace Off's Ruff label shared with Niveau Zero and one featuring a remix by Hecq), he has developed an intricate, intense and particularly sharp sound, somewhere at the meeting points of genres. "Orb" is his long awaited first adventure into drum'n'bass. The tempo has become faster, the sound a bit more stripped, and the focus has greately gained in precision and drive. And still, 2methyl knows better than repeat and copy. "Orb" is a very intricate work: clear, heavy, sharp and adding this musician's experience and experiments to beats which are sure to pack the dancefloor. An EP for the feet as much as for the brain from an artist to watch extremely closely.
