Watch Swarm Intelligence's new "Destroyer" video.
Friday, 16 January 2015 14:06

Following a first video created for "Antenna", here comes a second film directed around a track taken from Swarm Intelligence's "Faction" (adn183). Once again black and white, once again fast edited, but more organic, grittier and probably darker, "Destroyer" showcases another side of this massive, dark but also imaginative and deep album.

You can watch the video to "Destroyer" here or below. It was created by Maria Mendes specifically for Swarm Intelligence.

"What They Left Behind", watch a documentary scored by Ben Lukas Boysen.

"What They Left Behind", watch a documentary scored by Ben Lukas Boysen.
Introvert, motional music obviously helps conveys important messages. A few weeks after Medair using Ben Lukas Boysen's "Gravity" in a short movie about refugees living in Lebanon, this artist has lent his art to a good cause again, this time writing a full score for a movie documentary about gun violence in the USA.

Entitled "What They Left Behind", this half-hour documentary was created by Sandy Hook Promise (an organisation created after the Sandy Hook school shooting) aimed at preventing children from guns. There is little else for us to say, but we strongly recommend everybody to watch this movie and, of course, not only take its message into account but also notice Ben Lukas Boysen's music.

Sixth, final part of DJ Hidden's "Enclosed" podcast series.
Friday, 02 January 2015 15:59

Sixth, final part of DJ Hidden's "Enclosed" podcast series.
Friday Freebie: let's start 2015 with a closure. DJ Hidden and Ad Noiseam present you the sixth, final chapter of a very ambitious project in which this artist embarked in October 2013, surrounding the release of his third full length album, "Enclosed" (adn173).

Over the course of six hours, DJ Hidden's "Enclosed podcast series" took us through drum'n'bass, electronica and hardcore, from hard and dancefloor-oriented tracks to deeper, calmer ones. It took a long time to reach completion, but the result of this ambitious idea was very worth the wait.

You can listen to "Outcast #00", the 6th episode of DJ Hidden's podcast series here or below. Click here for the 6th episodes on one page.

The previous mixes in this series were brought to you by:
- #1 Ad Noiseam
- #2 Hard Bass Dealers
- #3 PRSPCT
- #4 Mindtrick
- #5 Harder & Louder

Swarm Intelligence throws 2014 into the abyss.
Tuesday, 23 December 2014 15:30

It's been a very busy and successful years for Swarm Intelligence. Not only did Simon Hayes start 2014 with a "Black Iron Prison" debut album on Acre Recordings, but he also had his first CD album on Ad Noiseam, "Faction" (adn183) released in November, and collaborated with his band mate Monolog in their Diasiva side-project, playing quite a few shows and releasing a few tracks.

To celebrate this busy but somber year, Swarm Intelligence presents us today a very un-Christmas-sounding mix entitled "One For The Abyss", which contains only material from his two albums so far ("Faction" and "Black Iron Prison") as well as from an upcoming EP on Acroplane.
