DJ Hidden's impressive third album, "Enclosed" (adn173) might have now been released, but he's not giving up on the announced colossal series of six hour-long podcasts prepared to promote the album and showcase the scope of his taste and talents. After a first (Ad Noiseam) episode focusing on his own music, a second (Hard Bass Dealers) aimed at drum'n'bass heads and a third (PRSPCT) to fans of crossbreed and hardcore, here comes a much more downtempo and melodic fourth part, this time made official by our good friends of Mindtrick Records.
You can listen to this podcast here or below. Enjoy, and of course, don't forget to check out "Enclosed", which is at least as varied as this podcast series.
Stavros Gasparatos's "Seven" (adn170) being now out, available and gathering praises, this musician and Ad Noiseam have decided to present this work in the best possible situation. The live premiere of this performance (in which Stavros Gasparatos will play alongside cello, violin, vibraphone, percussion and soprano saxophone as well as video work by Paris Mexis, who already signed the trailer to "Seven") will take place at a particularly impressive venue, Athens's Onassis Cultural Centre (pictured above) on December 22nd.
We are extremely happy that Stavros Gasparatos will be able to present "Seven" in such a setting, and are working on making this the first of a series of performance in adequate locations, both in Greece and elsewhere. We also can not but express our gratitude to the Onassis Foundation for this opportunity.
We strongly recommend anybody interested in attending this concert to check the information on the OCC website (here in Greek, there in English) and get their tickets in advance. Below are more images from this impressive location.
Friday Freebie: since the release of his "Bads" and "Smaida Greizi Nakamiba" albums, Oyaarss hasn't been busy "only" with forming a new live band and playing gigs all over Europe, but also with heavy studio works which has already given birth to a few new tracks. While the time hasn't come yet to release them to the world in all their glory (we will all have to wait till 2014 for this), we however already get a little preview of them as part of a new podcast which was made available a couple of weeks ago (sorry for being late with this) and which we present again today.
You can listen to this new Oyaarss mix here or below. Enjoy, and watch out for more material from this artist in the future.
This time around, Stormfield discusses the way people reacted to Fausten's live gigs (and videos) at this year's Burn The Machine and Maschinenfest festivals, almot overdosing on garlic, working on new material, presenting workshops and more.

Friday freebie (on a monday, because we can): After reading an interview with Monolog yesterday, time has come to dive again into his intricate beat patterns, rugged beats and heavy basses. The man has been particularly generous recently, providing us already with a full-length studio mix and a recording of his set at the Maschinenfest 2013 festival. What we get today is a partial recording of the show he played alongside Balkansky, Igorrr, Mobthrow and many others at Burn The Machine 2013.
Monolog's Burn The Machine 2013 set can be listened to (and downloaded) here or below.
The well known Berlin-based music production company Ableton (makers of Live) have published a new interview with three musicians who performed at last week's Burn The Machine 2013 festival, including Ad Noiseam's recent signing Monolog (pictured above wearing a great hoodie, between Rory St John and Swarm Intelligence).
Subheim is currently collaborating regularly with this other Greek act that is the lesser known and clearly underrated Poordream. Not only will the both of them share the stage together at the Burn The Machine 2013 festival in Berlin this week-end, but Poordream is also allegedly bringing his touch to the recording of Subheim's upcoming third full length album (to come out in 2014 on Ad Noiseam).
In the meanwhile, though, as a probable teaser of things to come, the pair allow us to listen to a remix they just finished for the Spanish act Obsidian Kingdom. We have no information as to whether this track is being released anywhere, but we can already click on "play" here or below and enjoy.
