Friday Freebie: most people reading this line will think primarily of hard beats and complex d'n'b structures when reading the name Monolog. This is accurate when thinking of his recent album, "2 Dots Left" (adn172). However, this Danish musician has been writing a lot more calmer material as well over the years, as for example demonstrated with his 2012 "Aerodymanic" LP.
Following a series of mix and live records aimed at presenting his current, furious and distorted self, Monolog has decided to showcase this (much) more atmospheric of his talent with the latest episodes of the "Mindcast" series curated by the good people of the Mindwaves label. The result is half an hour of deep drones and very subtle changes and melodies, which you can listen to here or below. Enjoy.
Two tracks by Ben Lukas Boysen taken from his "Gravity" album (adn168) have recently been used in a short film simply entitled "Bonnie & Clyde", which Lanther Films describe as "British spin on the story of two of America's best known bank robbers (...) a pair who captured the imaginations of a nation disillusioned by financial crisis". This movie can be watched here or below.
This live rendition of "Parejošs kaut kas" is available here or below. Turn the volume up, click play and enjoy. You are free to share, repost this video and spread the word. Note that Oyaarss is now available for bookings both solo and as a live band. Get in touch to book him / them in your neck of the woods.
There's quite a lot in the pipeline for Gore Tech at the moment. Recently relocated to Berlin (right in time for Burn The Machine 2013), this musician has a few releases in preparation, including a follow-up to the Ad Noiseam-released "Machine Throne" EP (adn166). The Bitlord Blog just sat down with him for an interview in which this musician compares the breakcore scene in his native Manchester and his new Berlin home, his music production techniques and Gore Tech's near future, among other topics. You can read this interview here.

DJ Hidden's impressive third album, "Enclosed" (adn173) might have now been released, but he's not giving up on the announced colossal series of six hour-long podcasts prepared to promote the album and showcase the scope of his taste and talents. After a first (Ad Noiseam) episode focusing on his own music, a second (Hard Bass Dealers) aimed at drum'n'bass heads and a third (PRSPCT) to fans of crossbreed and hardcore, here comes a much more downtempo and melodic fourth part, this time made official by our good friends of Mindtrick Records.
You can listen to this podcast here or below. Enjoy, and of course, don't forget to check out "Enclosed", which is at least as varied as this podcast series.
Stavros Gasparatos's "Seven" (adn170) being now out, available and gathering praises, this musician and Ad Noiseam have decided to present this work in the best possible situation. The live premiere of this performance (in which Stavros Gasparatos will play alongside cello, violin, vibraphone, percussion and soprano saxophone as well as video work by Paris Mexis, who already signed the trailer to "Seven") will take place at a particularly impressive venue, Athens's Onassis Cultural Centre (pictured above) on December 22nd.
We are extremely happy that Stavros Gasparatos will be able to present "Seven" in such a setting, and are working on making this the first of a series of performance in adequate locations, both in Greece and elsewhere. We also can not but express our gratitude to the Onassis Foundation for this opportunity.
We strongly recommend anybody interested in attending this concert to check the information on the OCC website (here in Greek, there in English) and get their tickets in advance. Below are more images from this impressive location.
