Ad Noiseam is very proud to announce the official release and immediate availability of the impressive and metal-packaged third full length album by DJ Hidden, "Enclosed" (adn173). This album is now available straight from the Ad Noiseam online store on double CD or as digital files, as well as from every good physical and digital store.
DJ Hidden's third full length album is such a rich and encompassing experience that a few words can't do justice to its diversity and sharpness. A seamless combination of all of Noel Wessels's projects and tastes, it takes its listeners from the calmest, most evocative ambiences to the fastest, most pounding dancefloor highs. Nobody writes a track like DJ Hidden does, and we highly doubt that anybody is going to catch up with a musician whose blasts outside his expected boundaries with such commanding force, as “Enclosed” is a lot more than a regular album.
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.
