With their first "on-purpose" album, The Outside Agency come up with the full-length album which we need, but might not deserve, and certainly not expect. This duo comprised of DJ Hidden and Eye-D have regularly brought fresh sound to the hardcore scene and repeat this feat again. Crossbreed, dubstep, breakcore? All this (and more) is included in this wildly varying and still extremely focused and driven album. If there ever was somebody who could combine cleverness, depth and masterful production to such a relentlessly hard music genre, it was them. They've done it again, probably more than ever. Are you listening? Get this on CD / as digital files.
There are a few other releases coming out before this one (from Niveau Zero, Oyaarss, Enduser / Needle Sharing / Teknoist) and Techdiff, but it's already time for a teaser. Ad Noiseam is very proud of welcoming The Outside Agency to the fold and release their new album (and their first ever made-on-purpose one), "The Dogs Are Listening" (adn162). Audio excerpts, images, info and pre-order will follow at the end of October, but here's already the teaser. Tada!
We know that you like to get your audio streamed from Soundcloud, dont you? Therefore, while all these tracks can also be listened to right here, Techdiff has uploaded six audio excerpts from his coming "P.Conv" album (adn151) to this site, and you can listen to all of them below.
TechDiff's "P.Conv" is coming out on Ad Noiseam on November 5th. More information, images and (the same) audio here. You can already pre-order your copy on CD there or as FLAC / mp3 here.
The first release for November will be a three-way collaboration between Enduser, Needle Sharing and The Teknoist, the "Enduser Shares Needles with The Teknoist" (adn164), a sequel of sort to 2002's "Tarmvred Shares Needles with Panacea" (adn11). Expect hard breaks, harder beats and more fury than ever from these three. You can read more about (and listen to) this album here, and pre-order the CD there and its digital version over here. This album is coming out on November 1st.
Only a few days later (November 5th) will, finally, be the time to unleash "P.Conv" (adn151), the long awaited first album by Techdiff. This one has been in the works for a long time, but the wait and efforts were very worth it, as we get a highly original, sharp and incisive work which impresses by its originality and freshness. Slowed down breakcore with a crystal clear production and heavy sound. Audio excerpts and more information are this way, while pre-orders for the CD should be placed here, and for the digital version there.
Below is a four and a half minute mix prepared by Oyaarss himself and featuring all the material from this album. While each track is displayed only for half a minute, it should give you a better idea of the density and diversity of "Bads"'s follow-up.
This week's Friday Freebie is a double one coming courtesy of Subheim, as two tracks featuring his sounds (at least for parts) are now available for listening and downloading.
First, we get a remix by Matta of his "At The Edge Of The World" (taken from his "No Land Called Home" album, adn133), first prepared for the free compilation given away at this year's edition of the Elektroanschlag festival. Only people attending this festival were initially able to listen to the duo's re-building of this tunem but here it is now available for all. Enjoy this downtempo, "post"-whatever, emotional remix:
It is then the turn of Subheim to take on the role of the remixer, with his re-interpretation of Lights Out Asia "Psiu! Puxa!" (taken from this act's "Eyes Like Brontide" album). Allegedly prepared quite a long time ago for a project which never saw the light of the day, this Subheim remix is now available:
October is upon us, and will see the release of two major albums on Ad Noiseam before it is over. Announced, displayed and now available for pre-orders are two very distinct works from the two current heavy hitters that are Oyaarss (following his "Bads" album with a remasted release of his early "Smaida Greizi Nakamiba" demo) and Niveau Zero (with his long-awaited "Jasmine" second full length album).
Both of these albums will be released on October 22nd and both come on all formats: vinyl (everytime with a copy of the album on CD in the sleeve), CD and digital files. And as usual, pre-orders get a rebate: if you purchase your copy of these albums before their release date, not only will you get your copy before anyone else, but also for a bit cheaper. Act fast.
Read below for more information, images and audio from both of these albums.
We received more than 5 hours of continuous play of remixes to listen to, and had long discussions as to which was our favorite. Voting for this contest were Niveau Zero, The Unik (his collaborator for this track), the Fixt team and your humble servant at Ad Noiseam. Picking the three best remixes out of more than 70 wasn't easy. Check the result below, and get in touch if you are one of the winners. If you are not, we are still very thankful that you participated to this contest, and had a good time listening to your remixes.
