Our good friends of Machinecode (the collaborative project of Underhill's Dean Rodell and Current Value) will soon have a third full length album out on the Subsistenz label. It is quite the heavy-hitter, and potentially one of the best piece of drum'n'bass we've heard recently (together with DJ Hidden's "Enclosed"). There is still about a month to go before its release, but people can now pre-order this "Velocity" album straight from the Ad Noiseam online store, both on CD and as mp3 / FLAC. This means that your CD would be sent a bit in advance, and that your downloads would be available at midnight on the album's release date (March 3rd). Head on to the Ad Noiseam online store to get your copy of this album, and don't forget that you can also pre-order Ad Noiseam's next release, 2methyl's "Orb"on vinyl and as digital files, this one with a rebate (making pre-orders cheaper than later ones).
To drive their point home, Machinecode have also recorded a new podcast, "Subcast X", which you can listen to here or below. Enjoy, and prepare for more great things to come this way (including a new Underhill album in the coming months).
Friday Freebie / Ad Noiseam Podcast: for a new year, a new regular series; while we've not been shy of offering free mixes over the year, Ad Noiseam start today a new, more recognizable series of podcasts recorded by artists on the label and presenting their new material. The first volume is available right now, coming from 2methyl (which some of you might still know as 2methylbulbe1ol), to celebrate the forthcoming release of his Ad Noiseam début, the "Orb" EP (adn175). We already have a couple of other mixes in the pipeline; make sure you check this site for more in a near future.
When he is not writing new music (a lot of which is planned for release on Ad Noiseam later this year, to follow last year's "Machine Throne" EP) or battling the cold winter of his new-found Berlin home, Gore Tech is tearing soundsystems apart all across Europe. The following video is a short and dense display of what to expect and experience at Gore Tech live gigs, which are all listed in our Ad Noiseam events page.
The Auckland & Los Angelos-based radio show Deep Hard n Fakecore has just published an interesting compilation of short mixes, in which they asked musicians from seven countries to record a fifteen minutes mix of their own track. Particularly relevant to our interests are the inclusion of France's Igorrr and UK's Gore Tech in this project, alongside Germany's Christoph de Babalon or the Netherlands's FFF, among others.. While one would assume that people reading these lines would know these artists' music (and their latest releases, "Hallelujah" and "Machine Throne", which interestingly bear contiguous catalog numbers), it is interesting to hear which tracks are showcased and how each of these little mixes are built.
You can listen to the whole show here or below (and feel free to chip in a little bit to support this show), or to the Igorrr mix and Gore Tech's one independently.
On top of being one of the artists who created sounds for you to play with as part of the ongoing Burn The Machine / Ableton remix contest, Monolog is reaching out to the producers community today again, giving a way a whole batch of sounds, "fresh off the machines".
This new sound pack by Monolog can be downloaded for free here, and there are no royalties attached to it. Therefore, download this, be creative, participate in the mentionned contest, and say thanks to Monolog by checking out his "2 Dots Left" album (adn172). The best part of all this? A new Monolog album on Ad Noiseam is already in the works and will be released this Spring.
Spyweirdos has recorded four new tracks of piano-based experimentations under his real name, "Spyros Polychronopoulos", which have been released as a free EP by Room 40 (known for releasing material by Lawrence English, Rafael Anton Irisarri, Tim Hecker and many others). You can listen to the opening track here or below, and the whole EP is free to download there (all you needf is an email address). Enjoy this soft, delicate yet engaging EP, and don't forget that we have another piano-heavy recent release on Ad Noiseam.
Igorrr keeps on rocking the world and we have videos to prove it. The short movie above might be a less insane than the one of a Montreal gig we posted in September, or a bit less exotic than this Moscow one, but it still gives a very good impression of what Igorrr sounds and looks like on stage (that is, till he starts incorporating two singers to his live set-up). This video was shot last week (January 10th, 2014) at Le Ferrailleur in Nantes, France, during the "Electronik Basstards" party organised by Ghetto Art. The track played is "Absolute Psalm", taken from Igorrr's fourth album, "Hallelujah" (Ad Noiseam adn165, available on vinyl, CD and as digital files).
