Out now: Monolog "Merge" (adn178)

Today is the day: Ad Noiseam is happy to announce the official release of Monolog's new album (his second for the label). "Merge" marks the beginning of the Fall season and opens a round of releases in which it will be followed by Oyaarss's "Zemdega", Swarm Intelligence's "Faction" and more which will be announced soon.

Monolog's new album, in which he collaborates with such artists as Balkansky, Karsten Pflum, Swarm Intelligence, Species or Tone, is now immediately available through our online store (on CD, as a poster print coming with a download code and as digital downloads) as well as from a selection of fine distributors and a wide scope of digital platforms.

You can read more about Monolog's "Merge" and listen to several tracks here. A presentation podcast, mixed by Gore Tech, can be heard there or below. Enjoy, and expect much more from Monolog in the future.

Ad Noiseam welcomes Swarm Intelligence.

Ad Noiseam welcomes Swwarm Intelligence.
You heard some of his collaboration with Monolog on "2 Dots Left" (adn172) and will on "Merge" (adn178, officially out tomorrow). We've praised his latest "Black Iron Prison" album, and booked him at last year's Burn The Machine festival. Time has come to welcome Swarm Intelligence to the Ad Noiseam roster and announce "Faction", his first release for the label. This new full length by this Berlin-based producer will be released on Ad Noiseam on November 10th, and can already be pre-ordered on CD, as a poster-print with download code or as digital files. As usual, pre-orders get a rebate.

We'll post much more about about from Swarm Intelligence soon, but here is already "False Flag", the opening track to this "Faction" album (adn183).

Swarm Intelligence - Faction - adn183
Sunday, 28 September 2014 14:07
ImageSwarm Intelligence's first album for Ad Noiseam is the densest and most interesting piece of beat-driven industrial music that has been sent our way in the recent times. Drawing from a past in IDM and techno as well as his involvement in Berlin's current new noise scene, Swarm Intelligence marries here some of the heaviest basses around with an uncompromising level of distortion and astute beats. Heavy, enthralling, modern, dark: an impressive new step by a musician to watch (and listen to) very closely. (Get this on CD / as a poster print with download code / as digital files)

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.

Click above these lines for a video trailer to this album, or here to read more about "Zemdega" and to listen to three tracks from this impressive, deep and raw new album by Oyaarss.
