Mobthrow "Unfolded" - Ad Noiseam adn176
Out today and immediately available is the long-awaited and already praised second album by Mobthrow, "Unfolded" (adn176). Following 2methyl's "Orb" EP and coming before Broken Note's "Black Mirror" (out next week), it is Ad Noiseam's second release for 2014.

"Unfolded", about which you can read more here or listen to there, is available directly from the Ad Noiseam online store as a 6-panel digifile CD, a limited edition, high-quality print poster (which is already almost sold out) and as digital files (mp3 and FLAC).

Maturity and depth: with his second album, Mobthrow refines his very original mixture of beat-driven breaks and highly evocative atmospheres, enriching them with a subtle newfound palette. A very original work at the meeting point of the club and the sonic daydream, "Unfolded" sharpens Mobthrow's vision and brings a modern twist on his impressive sound-design. This seductive and personal album is not only the confirmation that Mobthrow is a talented musician to be reckoned with, but also an author whose albums carry their own strong narrative. There are many side to "Unfolded", and they all fit firmly and harmoniously together.

A new format: here's Mobthrow's limited edition luxury print.

Mobthrow "Unfolded" - limited edition photo print - adn176

As most of you should know by now, Ad Noiseam will release Mobthrow's impressive second album ("Unfolded", adn176) next week. Besides coming on a (very nicely packaged) CD and as digital files, this new album is also offered in a third format, which is a new for both the label and this artist.

We have printed a limited run of heavy, high quality photographic prints of "Unfolded"'s artwork, which come with a download code for the full album. These posters are much thicker and higher-resolution than anything comparable (250g, high-gloss photo paper), much bigger (42 x 60 cm / 16.5 x 23.5 inches) and feel extremely nice.

This limited print is a perfect way for you to collect and expose this Mobthrow's album proudly, and a way for us to provice something to all of you who wish to have "bigger" artwork images without having to buy a vinyl record (let's be honest: part of the vinyl buyers want something to show on their walls and listen to the music as mp3). It is available for pre-order right now here, next to the CD and digital versions.

Watch a video showreel set to the sound of Subheim's "Conspiracies".

Watch a video showreel se to the sound of Subheim's "Conspiracies".
Subheim's music carries inherent cinematic atmospheres, as proved over and over by the use of his material in videos and short films, such as this one about post-Fukushima Japan. Only a year ago, tracks from this musicians were included in two showreels by the independent videographers Amin Oussar and Jonathan Rados. The later displays his taste for Subheim's music again today, with "Conspiracies" (taken from the "No Land Called Home" album, adn133) being the intense musical thread to the new video showreel of his Eben crew (astute readers might remember than the same people had also shot a video to the sound of Ben Lukas Boysen's "Eos", from his "Gravity" album).

You can watch this Eben showreel here or below.

Help us crowd-fund Ruby My Dear's new video
Ruby My Dear, the French director Lisa Chabbert and Ad Noiseam asks for your help: we intend on creating an ambitious short movie for Ruby My Dear's track "Jitter Room" (taken from his album "Form", adn171), and want to do it right.

We are working with professional technicians, actors and movie-makers for this project, and intend at having a 4-day long shoot, 7 actors, 10 technicians and, to cut a long story short, quite a lot of costs. Therefore, we are calling for donations, starting today a crowd-funding campaign, hoping to raise enough money to enable us to create the best possible movie and manage to pay and feed everybody in the meantime.

The donation page is here. There are many "packages" available, so that everybody can support this project according to its mean. As usual in this sort of campaign, some supporters will be thanked with free show tickets, free CDs and records.

A short trailer to this project can be watched here or below. Do not hesitate to ask us (by email or in the comments on this page) any question you might have. The campaign is running for about two months, and we hope that we will find enough people into Ruby My Dear to come up with an impressive video, shot and edited exactly as it should be.

Friday Freebie: Stavros Gasparatos shows "how it goes" with an uncommon podcast.

Friday Freebie: Stavros Gasparatos shows "how it goes" with an uncommon podcast.
Friday Freebie: while Stavros Gasparatos is known mostly for his neo-classical creations, may it be his recent "Seven" album (adn170) or his soundtracks to movies and theatre plays (such as these three he has given away for free), his musical taste is broad and his ears open. This is something he demonstrates in a new podcast, titled "That is how it goes - sorry for the abuse", which he recorded and made available this week.

Oscillating between calm, classical-oriented moment (both with his own material and music from the likes of Ben Lukas Boysen, Ben Frost or Hauschka) and tracks taken from Ad Noiseam's Autumn 2013 releses (by Ruby My Dear, Monolog and DJ Hidden), this podcast is surprisingly coherent and harmonious. Don't be scared by this conjunction of styles and enjoy this mix, which you can listen to here or below.

Listen to Monolog remixing Emika.

Listen to Monolog remixing Emika.
Mobthrow isn't the only Ad Noiseam acts which had a go at remixing (the incidentally Berlin-based act) Emika. Monolog also added his touch to her "Pretend" track for a remix which we can now listen to for free, either here or below. Needless to say, the end result is something a lot grittier and heavier than the original, though it also contrasts strongly with the fury of Monolog's recent "2 Dots Left" album" (adn172), and might be a foretaste of things to come.

Here's Monolog's remix of Emika's "Pretend". You can still listen to Mobthrow's take at "3 hours" here.

Out today: 2methyl's "Orb" EP (adn175)

Out today: 2methyl's "Orb" EP (adn175)
Ad Noiseam is proud to announce today the release and immediate availability of its first release for 2014, which is also the label debut for 2methyl. His "Orb" EP is out today, pressed onto crisp and bass-heavy vinyl. You can get your copy on 12" here, or as FLAC / mp3 there.

Ever-changing and ever progressing: over the course of a few years, 2methyl (formerly known as 2methylbulbe1ol) has developed an intricate, intense and particularly sharp sound, as demonstrated in a few records with the like of Niveau Zero and Hecq. "Orb" is his long awaited first adventure into drum'n'bass. 2methyl knows better than repeat and copy: "Orb" is a very clear, heavy, sharp and adding this musician's experience and experiments to beats which are sure to pack the dancefloor. An EP for the feet as much as for the brain from an artist to watch extremely closely.

Click here to read more about "Orb" and listen to excerpts from all tracks. You can listen to a medley of the whole EP there, or to 2methyl's "Ad Noiseam podcast #1" mix there.

From the vaults: listen to an Oyaarss DJ set from 2008.

From the vaults: listen to an Oyaarss DJ set from 2008.
Oyaarss has dug deep in his archives and uploaded a recording of one of his rare DJ-sets, played in this case in 2008 at the latvian Sarkasms festival. It was self-admittedly played while "heavy inebriated" but is an interesting document for anybody who is interested in learning about Oyaarss's tastes and influences, for it features both tracks which one would expect this musician to listen to (Ekaros or Vex'd) but also more surprising tunes (from Isi, Nine Inch Nails or Autechre, for example).

You can listen to Oyaarss's "Sarcastic Mixtape 2008" here or below. Enjoy, then head on to listen to his Electronic Explorations set from 2012.
