Friday Freebie (a few hours early): DJ Hidden's in having a very productive streak at the moment, as all of us will have noticed. Not only has he recently finished the recording of his third full length album, the "Enclosed" double CD (which will be released on Ad Noiseam on Monday and can still be pre-ordered, with a rebate here on CD and there as digital file), but he's giving away today his third hour-long podcast in as many weeks.
Anybody who's even only remotely interested in the output and past of the madman that is Igorrr knows that this project's musician, Gautier Serre, has an extensive experience in bands. Demonstrated last with Whourkr's "4247 Snares Drums" (adn158), it was also the case before the inception of Igorrr in itself; performing on stage with other musicians and singers is something which has always been close to his heart.
If, like Igorrr, you enjoy live singers and shows that consist of more than a man twisting his equipment, keyboards and computer, rejoice: Igorrr is currently working together with his long-time associates Laure Le Prunenec and Laurent Lunoir on a new show, which would translate live the vocals parts of his music.
There are no shows confirmed for this Igorrr-as-a-trio performance so far, but we've seen videos of the practice sessions, which were both impressive and very promising. Promoters: we are now taking booking requests not only for Igorrr's regular sets, but also for this live configurations's. Get in touch if you want to get some baroquecore in your neck of the woods.
Monolog "2 Dots Left" - CD / digital A hidden treasure no more: Monolog propels himself to the forefront of cutting edge drum'n'bass and electronica with this amazingly intense album. A lesson in music production and an impressive display of controlled madness, “2 Dots Left” is a tour de force made of deep basses, very percussive beats and high tempos. Monolog manages to makes his what most people could only experiment with and comes up with something which, while overwhelming at first, proves to be extremely absorbing and rewarding.

The first part of this "Enclosed Sessions" podcast was broadcast by Ad Noiseam and can still be listened to / downloaded here (or there). The second instalment was spread to the world today through the good people as Hard Bass Dealers, and can be listened to here or below. Rather than focusing on purely DJ Hidden material, as the first one did, this one includes almost only material from like-minded artists.
Press play, enjoy, stay tuned for the next episodes, listen again to the first one and, of course, don't pass on the opportunity to pre-order your copy of "Enclosed". As usual, pre-orders are getting a rebate.
We're exactly 19 days away from the release date of DJ Hidden's third full length album, the "Enclosed" double CD (adn173). This is a massive, rich and diverse album, and we intend at promoting it in the same way. Therefore, DJ Hidden has recorded no less than six different podcasts, each an hour long, which will be presented online little by little, on six different platforms.
Ad Noiseam is releasing the "Enclosed" album and therefore opening the dance with the first episode of the "Enclosed" series of podcast. This one focuses heavily on drum'n'bass, starting with the excellent "The Wanderer" track.
