Friday Freebie: Subheim has recently writing his third album. This successor to "No Land Called Home" is planned for released on Ad Noiseam in early 2014. There are a few other Subheim tracks planned for release on various projects between now and then, and while this musician is currently preparing his new live-set (for example for his concert at Burn The Machine 2013), he slightly opened the door to his studio today, presenting us with a short but to the point preview of what we can expect from him in the coming month. This preview showcases a very interesting evolution, with a lot of material sounding very different from Subheim's past releases, even though it stays true to this artist's unmissable atmospheres.
You can listen to this "2013-2014 preview" here or below. Enjoy.
We posted last week a short video showing Oyaarss's practicing his "Parejošs kaut kas" track together with the drummer and guitar player from Neļaudis. This band practice was part of these musicians' preparation to last week-end's Latvian Laba Daba festival, during which Oyaarss performed on stage as a band.
This festival has passed and this show has been played, as attest the following three videos. They are filmed from relatively far away, but should still enable one to get an impression of what Oyaarss might sound like with live drums and live guitars. Enjoy (and remember that this is not the first time we show you an Ad Noiseam acts playing together with live musicians).
We all know that The Outside Agency live and work in a parallel universe (how could they otherwise write these beats, at this speed, while also producing music as DJ Hidden and Eye-D)? A quirk of this glitch in time is that it's Christmas already in their native Goes, which mean they have a present for us.
We can all be VIP today, as The Outside Agency have decide to give us the VIP version of their track "They Are Human" (co-written with Current Value and originally available on "Crossbreed Definition Series Part 3"), for a "name your price" obolus.
Oyaarss is currently working on a new live-setting, in which his music would be performed by a whole live-bad. Below is a short and surprising video of this musician performing the track "Parejošs kaut kas" (taken from his "Bads" album, adn159) together with the memers of the Latvian band Neļaudis. The sounds is obviously taken from a small mic in the room, but we can all already not only get a glimpse at Oyaarss's live set up and studio, but also at how his music might be rendered with guitar and drum players.
Ad Noiseam is co-organizing the third edition of Berlin's annual winter festival, Burn The Machine. Taking place from October 31st to November 2nd, this festival invites artists ranging from drones to hard drum'n'bass to present their music in a very fitting (and very loud) club. On the line-up this year are several Ad Noiseam artists, such as Igorrr, Gore-Tech, Fausten, Balkansky, and more to be announced.
The big news today is that we're starting the sales of "early birds" festival passes. Available for either three days (the whole festival) or two (the week-end nights only), these tickets are available here. We very strongly recommend you get your tickets in advance and as soon as possible. Note that these tickets will get more expensive as we get closer to the festival.
When he's not writing Reaktor patches or sharp and complex albums, TechDiff goes on the road to tear PAs and pack dancefloor. The video below is a testimony of his latest weeks of sonic rampage, a little tour together with Wheyheyhey and Mycrophisst, which brought them all accross Europe (and in Berlin for a Surgical party).

Friday Freebie: below is a short set prepared by yours truely for Dubstep.lv's Dabsolis show, which was aired last week on Riga's Radio Naba. Unlike most sets we have posted here (with the exception of a "Monday night set" posted some months ago), thiss one is not aiming at making you dance, but rather tuck you gently in bed (possibly crying and slashing your wrists, but we won't be held responsible for this). In other words, this half-hour is dedicated to calm, dark and meditative sounds.
On a side note, this is probably the first time that most of us will hear the word "Oyaarss" pronounced right. Listen up at 9min 35s and take notice.
