Oscillating between calm, classical-oriented moment (both with his own material and music from the likes of Ben Lukas Boysen, Ben Frost or Hauschka) and tracks taken from Ad Noiseam's Autumn 2013 releses (by Ruby My Dear, Monolog and DJ Hidden), this podcast is surprisingly coherent and harmonious. Don't be scared by this conjunction of styles and enjoy this mix, which you can listen to here or below.
Mobthrow isn't the only Ad Noiseam acts which had a go at remixing (the incidentally Berlin-based act) Emika. Monolog also added his touch to her "Pretend" track for a remix which we can now listen to for free, either here or below. Needless to say, the end result is something a lot grittier and heavier than the original, though it also contrasts strongly with the fury of Monolog's recent "2 Dots Left" album" (adn172), and might be a foretaste of things to come.
Here's Monolog's remix of Emika's "Pretend". You can still listen to Mobthrow's take at "3 hours" here.
Ad Noiseam is proud to announce today the release and immediate availability of its first release for 2014, which is also the label debut for 2methyl. His "Orb" EP is out today, pressed onto crisp and bass-heavy vinyl. You can get your copy on 12" here, or as FLAC / mp3 there.
Ever-changing and ever progressing: over the course of a few years, 2methyl (formerly known as 2methylbulbe1ol) has developed an intricate, intense and particularly sharp sound, as demonstrated in a few records with the like of Niveau Zero and Hecq. "Orb" is his long awaited first adventure into drum'n'bass. 2methyl knows better than repeat and copy: "Orb" is a very 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.
Oyaarss has dug deep in his archives and uploaded a recording of one of his rare DJ-sets, played in this case in 2008 at the latvian Sarkasms festival. It was self-admittedly played while "heavy inebriated" but is an interesting document for anybody who is interested in learning about Oyaarss's tastes and influences, for it features both tracks which one would expect this musician to listen to (Ekaros or Vex'd) but also more surprising tunes (from Isi, Nine Inch Nails or Autechre, for example).
People have been asking for it and waiting for it: here it is, a new Broken Note release. "Black Mirror" is the name of this artist's new EP, which will come out on Ad Noiseam on March 10th, bearing the catalog number adn169. More than just a follow-up to "Flood", it shows that Broken Note hasn't lost his touch one bit and isn't afraid to refine his art and explore new territories.
Loop Stepwalker revisits the classics from his friend and collaborator Cooh (a.ka. Balkansky, with whom he signed the "Fraktals" and "Simetria" EPs as well as the "Adhesion" album) today, and offers us a remix, free to stream and download, of Cooh's "Armeny", a track released back in 2007 on a split EP with Black Sun Empire. Enjoy, and don't forget to check out "Adhesion" for more material from these two together.
Once again, this "Enclosed Sessions #5" is an free hour-long mix prepared by DJ Hidden, and focusing this time around on heavy, crossbreed sound and modern-days d'n'b. You can listen to it here or below.
It will have taken a few years for Mobthrow to complete his second album, but the wait was worth it. Ad Noiseam is proud to announce the forthcoming release of this musician's new full-length, "Unfolded". This album will be available on March 3rd, bearing the catalog number adn176. You can read about it and listen to six tracks here, and pre-orders (including a rebate, as usual) are taken there.
Maturity and depth: with his second album, Mobthrow refines his very original mixture of beat-driven breaks and highly evocative atmospheres, enriching them with a subtle newfound palette. A very original work at the meeting point of the club and the sonic daydream, "Unfolded" sharpens Mobthrow's vision and brings a modern twist on his impressive sound-design. This seductive and personal album is not only the confirmation that Mobthrow is a talented musician to be reckoned with, but also an author whose albums carry their own strong narrative. There are many side to "Unfolded", and they all fit firmly and harmoniously together.
