Listen to Monolog's "Merge" album, mixed together by Gore Tech.
Friday freebie: We're nearing the release of Monolog's second album on Ad Noiseam, the heavy, broken and varied new "Merge" (adn178), which will be officially out net Monday. You can already listen to several tracks on this album's official info page, but here comes another way for you all to get a better taste of what Mads Lindgren has cooked this time around.

Impressed by how the tracks on "Merge" all fit together, while individually ranging from hard drum'n'bass to glitchy, experimental downtempo, Monolog's labelmate and chronic podcaster Gore Tech has recorded a 18-minute long "Merge presentation mix", which goes through most of the tracks on this album. Monolog's music in this podcast never stops, never pauses, and morphs continuously from one style to another.

You can listen to this mix here on Soundcloud (as well as on Mixcloud, Heathis, Youtube and Dailymotion) or below. Enjoy, and don't pass on pre-ordering "Merge" before it comes on Monday. As usual, pre-orders get a rebate.

Watch a Flux With It video interview of Monolog.
Wednesday, 24 September 2014 07:42

May it be with his intricate and driven live sets or with his albums, such as the soon-to-come "Merge" (adn178) or last year's "2 Dots Left" (adn172), Mads Lindgren is a proven music expert. Drawing his knowledge from years of experience with hardware (including, but not limited to, rock instruments) and software (he is working for Ableton, after all), the musician behind Monolog is not shy to speak about his production methods, his gear, and to help around.

Flux With It, a platform dedicated to "helping others channel creativity in their (musical) workflow" recorded a hour and a half long interview with Monolog yesterday, which is now available for us all. It was done over Skype, there isn't much to watch, but listening to Mads speak of Monolog's current state and future, his production and his instruments is something which musicians and enthusiasts shouldn't pass on. Take this as your own private gear conference.

Diasiva answer Machine Code with a "Molotov Sundays"
Friday, 19 September 2014 18:27

We mentionned a few weeks ago Machine Code's forthcoming "Stems" project, a collaborative release in which musicians were asked to create a track with sounds provided by this duo (Dean Rodell and Current Value, for the ones of you who haven't been following). This digital album is coming out on Machine Code's Subtrakt label in a near future, and we had got a first appetizer in the form of an excerpt from Oyaarss's contribution.

Time for a second teaser today, which is also related to Ad Noiseam, as the authors of the second "Stems" excerpt are Diasiva, the band formed by Monolog and Swarm Intelligence. Their tune, called "Molotov Sundays", contrasts strongly with Oyaarss's, and can be partially listened to below. Enjoy.

Announcing Monolog's new album, "Merge" (adn178).

Announcing Monolog's new album, "Merge" (adn178).
The summer is over, Ad Noiseam is back with a reserve of very strong albums to unleash on the world in the coming months. First, we are very happy to announce the release at the end of September of Monolog's new album, "Merge". The second full length on the label for this Danish-born, Berlin-based experimentator, comes a year after the very well received "2 Dots Left" (adn172). This was a very busy period for Mads Lindgren, which many of you have been able to catch live on stage all across Europe. He was still able to write a lot of new music, though, and collaborated with a varied array of like-minded producers and vocalists.

The result of these collaborations and solo effort is the accurately titled "Merge" album, which Ad Noiseam will release on CD, digital files and as a limited-edition, high-quality poster print coming with a digital download. Click on each format to pre-order your copy (and get a rebate on your order).

Monolog - Merge - adn178
Saturday, 13 September 2014 12:50
ImageA year after “2 Dots Left”, Monolog combines styles, unites collaborators and fuses influence in his most varied album to date. “Merge” is a perfect snapshot of this musician's tastes, talents and scope, from abysmal basses to club-packing breaks and vocal-based experimentations. Lyrical, warm, heavy and sharp, Monolog's music takes its listener along a coherent but colourful demonstration which keeps on pushing boundaries and redefining the project itself. This might well be the album with which Monolog unfolds its wide, human, and impressively powerful self. (Get this on CD / as a poster print with download code / as digital files)
Help Joanna Syze beat her disease (updated).

Help Joanna Syze beat her disease.
Bulgarian-born, Seattle-based Joanna Syze, who is known for both her solo music and her collaborations with the likes of Balkansky and Zardonic, has been hit by a serious disease which had forced her to stop producing, stay at hospitals and which seems to have greatly worsen recently.

Joanna's family and her friends have set up a crowd-supporting campaign to raise money to cover her medical costs and support the people who care for her while she is in the hospital. You can read more about this campaign here. Joanna's initial message about her sickness is there.

You can donate directly through this compaign's page here. On top of an initial donation, Ad Noiseam will also donate 100% of the sales of Joanna's album, 2011's "Rodina" to this campaign. We do not have many copies in stock, but hope that these sales will do their part and help.

We express our support to Joanna and ask you to donate, to buy her album (we will be fully transparent as to our forwarding of the money) and to support her and her family.

Oyaarss meet Machine Code for some audio "baddism".
Monday, 08 September 2014 17:02

You will hear a lot about (and from) Oyaarss and Machine Code if you follow Ad Noiseam in the coming weeks and months. Let's start with a track which will not be released on this label but on Dean Rodell's Subtrakt and taken from Machine Code's forthcoming collaborative "Stems" digital album, in which the Berlin-based duo (who is also at the heart of Underhill) asked friends and like-minded perpetrators to write a track using sound and samples (hence the album name) they provided.

Oyaarss's participation, entitled "Baddism", can be previewed here and below. We have heard the rest and believe us, you will want to head on to the Ad Noiseam online store as soon as pre-orders are taken for Machine Code's "Stems".
