While you can already listen to Gore Tech's mix here (or to two other sets he recorded here and there), below are two photos which should help you put a face on this young British breakcore act's music. There's really no excuse anymore for you not getting him a beer when he plays in your neck of the woods.
A release-party was held in Oyaarss's home town of Riga on October 27th 2012, to celebrate the release of his second album, "Smaida Greizi Nakamiba" (Ad Noiseam adn163). Besides Oyaarss himself, playing there was a fine selection of musicians and poets from Latvia, including Edgars Raginskis (who appears on the album), Crumar, Kaleeys and others.
You can now watch a short video report about this release party, featuring shots of all the musicians performing there (including Oyaarss), the venue and the general atmosphere. This video is available here or below.
A taste of things to come in 2013? Maybe? More than 50 000 deserved hits? Definitely? Here's a short, untitled draft of a new track by Ben Lukas Boysen, usually better known around here for being the man behind Hecq.
We are happy to announce that Ad Noiseam's first release of 2013 will be Gore Tech's first solo EP, "Machine Throne", bearing the catalog number adn166 and coming out in early March. This ferocious, varied, heavy and exhilirating four tracker will be presented more in details soon (though you can already check its artwork here), but what's going to keep your hears busy right now is its presentation mix, the brand new "Mainframe Warfare" mixtape, prepare by Gore Tech to introduce his music to all your waiting hears.
You can listen to this mix right here or below, and download it there. Featuring tracks from Gore Tech's recent Peace Off and Ruff EPs, as well as of his coming Murder Channel release and, of course, of the "Machine Throne" forthcoming EP on Ad Noiseam, it should give you a better idea of why we see in Gore Tech a great hope for new, fresh breakcore. Enjoy, and stay turned for more details about "Machine Throne".
How is this for an extremely improbable meeting: Oyaarss, known for his desolate, poetic and highly oppressive soundscapes and beats was recently asked to remix a track by Japan's "trancecore" master of the absurd and fun, DJ Technorch for the latter new remix CD, soon to be released by our good friends of Murder Channel (alongside remixes by Gore Tech and Sinister Souls).
The result of this presumably impossible colliding of sound is an extremely heavy, raw and still somewhat catchy hardcore piece, which demonstrates that there is more to Oyaarss than many would have thought possible. We're not too much into Youtube "video" posts over here, but while we wait for this remix CD to be in stock in the Ad Noiseam online store (in the coming weeks, probably), here's a preview of this excellent remix.
This time, the video artist is called Armin Oussar (click on his name to watch more of his work), with a video going through several of his works for video and films. The music itself is Subheim's track "Howl", taken from Subheim's first album, "Approach".
We have relatively little information about this video, but here comes an interesting project: Jonathan Rados's "Nothing is better" short, three-part film uses music from Broken Note, Subheim, Hecq and Clark to dress a rather personal, dark and slightly unsettling atmosphere.
You can watch the video here or below. We've also copied its description below, to help understand what this film is about.
