"Once when we were young" is a new short film by Rob Chiu (the man behind Hecq & Exillon's well known "Spheres Of Fury" video), shot for the Mexican 2012 edition of the Offf festival. This time again, Chiu has collaborated with Ben Lukas Boysen (better known here as Hecq) for the soundtrack of this movie.

We've been announcing that Ad Noiseam would release a full length album by TechDiff for sometimenow, and while the wait has been long already, we can assure everybody that this CD is getting close to being released. To make it all sweeter, here's a video shot during TechDiff's recent tour to Japan. An insane mash-up of breakcore, raggacore and gabber, a room packed solid with ravers, and good mood all along, here comes a good introduction to the insanity that is TechDiff.
Now for a nice YouTube find: below are four videos of Mobthrow performing live in Paris in June 2012, and of the crowd enjoying it. Click below to watch and listen to one of these unsurprisingly powerful and oh-so-rare Mobthrow live gig, and watch out if he ever comes to your neck of the woods (by the way, people in Paris, how about a repeat experience with an Ad Noiseam showcase at Batofar on September 28th)?
A year after the 10 Years Ad Noiseam party in Paris, Ad Noiseam returns to the French capital for a new festival. Armed with a fresh line-up of five live acts demonstrating the wide scope of the label, this event will have sound for everybody with good taste, from deep drones to pounding beats:
Friday, September 28th at Batofar -The Outside Agency (presenting their new album) -Enduser (only French concert in 2012) -Igorrr (with tracks from his forthcoming album) -Hecq (first Paris concert ever) -Subheim (first French concert ever)
More information can be found on this event's official page. Last year's birthday party was awesome (and packed solid), let's repeat the experience in 2012.
The wait is not over yet, but we've never been that close to the release date of Niveau Zero's sophomore album, "Jasmine" (Ad Noiseam adn161). Coming out on Ad Noiseam on double gatefold vinyl (which will include a copy of the CD, as we did with Enduser's "Even Weight" and Whourkr's "4247 Snare Drums"), digipack CD and digital, this new album is the coming-of-age full length for Niveau Zero, which shows with it a greatly extended scope of his talent. Featuring collaboration with Aucan, Octopus (of Dälek), Ill Smith, Dubsidia and others, as well as remix of France's metal combo As They Burn and a floor-packing remix by The Unik of Niveau Zero's "In_Sect", it is a powerful, massive, but deeply crafted and very detailed album.
Both bearing the (very different) logos from these bands, they are, as usual with Ad Noiseam merchandise, printed on fair-trade (as in "sweat-shop free"), organic cotton. The Mobhtrow shirts come in blue or black (but we sadly do not have any women-sized of them anymore), and the Igorrr ones only in black (and we do still have women shorts for them). More pictures after the break.
Following their participation to a recent NSPC TV spot, Matta have paired up again with the advertisment agency 3angrymen for a short but intense showreel. Showcasing Matta's beats, bass and melodies together with 3angrymen's images, it might appear as something "different" for most Matta fans, but underlines well how talented the duo is, and how far reaching their music can be. You can watch this showreel here or below.
