New music in the making from Ben Lukas Boysen / Hecq.
Wednesday, 03 September 2014 16:17

Below is a new track (or an excerpt thereof) by Ben Lukas Boysen / Hecq. Whether this might be a follow-up to "Gravity" (adn168) or "Conversions" (adn174), only time will tell. In the meantime, enjoy.

 
Ben Lukas Boysen's new sound design for OFFF Mexico.
Tuesday, 02 September 2014 20:15

When he is not working on his new album as Hecq or material under his real name, Ben Lukas Boysen likes to keep himself busy with frequent collaboration with the video arts OFFF Festival. He had written the music for the opening titles in 2011, did it again in 2013, had his "Sura" track used in a post-festival souvenir in 2010 and participated to a short film shown there in 2012.

Even though Ben Lukas Boysen's participation to the opening sequence to 2014's OFFF Mexico edition might not surprise us anymore, it is still a splendid score that this musician created this year. You can watch (and listen to) the resulting thing over there and below. Make sure to turn the volume up.

Watch a full video of Mobthrow on stage.
There are many good things to like about fans of industrial music, one of them being their dedication. We recently wrote about somebody who videotaped a full concert by Monolog at this year's Schlagstrom festival, which is already quite a feat (as we would personally rather dance and enjoy the show than stay behind a camera). This "Oppatria" Youtube user seems to be on a roll, as he comes today with a full-duration recording of the show that Mobthrow played two days ago at a Bassbeben event in Bielefeld.

You can watch this 50-minute long concert over there or below. This is pretty far from actually enjoying Mobthrow's music live (something which people in Dresden will be able to do on September 27th), but it is still a very nice thing to listen to and a good introduction to this act. Enjoy.

Dive back into a Hecq mix from 2010.

Dive back into a Hecq's mix from 2010.
Now that you have had a few days to listen to Tapage's new episode for Ad Noiseam podcast series and let it sink in, how about travelling back in time a bit and experiencing again a set which Ben Lukas Boysen / Hecq recorded for the Percussion Lab website back in 2010, a few months before Ad Noiseam released his "Sura" EP (adn128).

This half-hour, 23-track mix can not be embedded, you will have to click your way there to listen to Hecq mixing music from artists as varied as Biosphere, NTT, Machinefabriek or Godspeed You Black Emperor. This is pretty varied, if you ask us; could it be that this 2010 set already contained the roots of what would become Hecq's brand new album, the recent "Conversions" (about which you can read here, and which you can get on CD, as a limited edition poster-print, or as digital files).

 
Get a first glimpse of a new Detritus track.

Get a first glimpse of a new Detritus track.
Detritus's fifth and most recent album, "The Very Idea" (adn177) is still very fresh, having been released only a few months ago. And yet David Dando-Moore (pictured above playing in Rotterdam late last year) is already back behind his machines.

Below (and here) is a rough, first draft of a new Detritus track, so far called "Approach". Not only does it provide us a glimpse at where Detritus might go in the future, but also enables to get an idea of how his material evolves such a draft to a finalized album such as "The Very Idea".

Friday Freebie / Ad Noiseam Podcast #3: Tapage
Friday Freebie / Ad Noiseam Podcast: we keep on with our series of free podcasts which started early this year with 2methyl, followed in the Spring by Detritus, with a new, hour-long mix by Tapage. The third episode of Ad Noiseam's new podcast series celebrates his latest album, "Eight" (adn180, released on Ad Noiseam in June 2014). As usual with this series, Tapage goes beyond his own tracks in this mix and pays homage to other musicians who have had an influence on his art.

Tapage's "Ad Noiseam podcast #3", which also bears the fitting title of "Expanding Perspective" can be listened to below or on Soundcloud, Hearthis, Mixcloud and Youtube. The tracklisting is after the fold. Finally, we of course recommend you not to pass on Tapage's latest album, "Eight", which is available on CD here, as a limited-edition poster print (with download code) there and as digital files as well.

Rare, sold out albums available again in very low quantities.

Rare, sold out albums available again in very low quantities.
Though we have always tried to make every Ad Noiseam releases as easily available as possible, embracing many formats, re-pressing albums and distributing music all over the world, some (a major part, actually) of the music we have released is not available anymore, or at least not on all formats. Not being able (financially and logistically) to constantly re-press every album and have it on stock, we find ourselves forced to disappoint some of you who ask for the availability of some of our oldest or most successful releases.

Today brings good news to a happy few, then. We've been returned unsold stock from one of our distributors, and have a handful of copies of some till-now out of print releases available again in the online store. Quantities are very limited (ranging from one till five copies), we stronglly recommend that you act fast to secure your copies of these CD. No re-press is planned of any of these items, and we have no idea whether we will be returned any copies again. What we got today is:
