Video interview with Niveau Zero.

Video interview with Niveau Zero.

Most interviews with Niveau Zero are for obvious reasons in French, so let's not pass on this recent video interview conducted in English with this artist shortly after his gig for the Dubwars crew in Heilbronn on March 2rd 2013 as part of his "Jasmine" tour in Germany.

The interview itself starts at the 2:18 mark (after an intro whose music has little to do with Niveau Zero). We learn there a bit about this musician's concerts in Germany, the "Jasmine" album (including the dreaded "why this title?" question) and his composition process.

Friday Freebie: excerpt from Ontal's Fausten remix.

Friday Freebie: we've already posted several excerpts from Fausten's forthcoming eponymous album (adn167) on its dedicated page, but here comes another one, this time posted by Ontal and showcasing an except from the remix they wrote for this album.

Ontal is the collaborative project between the two Serbian musicians that are Boris Noiz and Dekode. Spotted first by Combat Recordings (the label run by Stormfield, one of the two members of Fausten), they are having an EP soon on Darkfloor Sound, which will eventually be available through the Ad Noiseam online store.

For the moment, here's this except of Fausten's "Evisceration (Ontal remix)", whose techno drive testify for the diversity of this otherwise slower and massive Fausten album. Remember, this one is coming out on vinyl, CD and as digital files on April 22nd. Pre-orders are now taken.

Short video of Fausten's mastering session.

Short video of Fausten's mastering session.

In an age of rapidfire release schedules and digital exclusives, audio mastering and vinyl cutting are often disregarded as costly and slow processes by labels and artists, much to the detriment of the final tracks and records. This is not something we agree on, as we constantly make effort to bring out the best sounding releases. This means working with experimented, talented mastering engineers (often distinct for each format) and vinyl cutters.

An example of this is the forthcoming Fausten album (adn167, to be released on all formats on April 22nd, and "pre-orderable" here). Its 12" vinyl version was prepared by Matt Colton of Alchemy Mastering (known for his works on seminal releases for Rephlex, Ninja Tune or Modern Love), while the CD one was mastering at Binary Feedback. Below is a short video showing Matt Colton working on Fausten's track "Abort" for the 12". Arguably, there's not a lot of the whole process to see, but it might be necessary to underline the fact that this release wasn't just mastered in five minutes on a cheap laptop (unlike some others we will not name).

Experiment in audiovisual syncing to the sound of Igorrr.
Wednesday, 10 April 2013 20:51

There're too many softwares, algorhythms and showcases aiming at perfecting how computer graphics can be synced (live or not) with music to list, but it's quite rare (actually, the first time if I am not mistaken) that somebody tries his hands or program to something as wildly unpredictable and varied as Igorrr's music. This is the challenge chosen by Chris Tripes for the following short video in which he syncs several visual settings to the music of Igorrr's "Toothpaste" (taken from the "Hallelujah" album, adn165). Enjoy.

We interrupt this program for a few days.

We interrupt this program for a few days.

Update: we're back, and all is back to normal.

The Ad Noiseam intergalatic corporate headquarter will be closed between March 28th and April 6th, as we all travel to a seminar about Force-supported music-releasing ("this is the music your are looking for"). In other words: we're taking some days off to recharge the batteries, and will not be able to do anything (or much) in the meantime.

All orders placed from the online store will be received, all items reserved, but shipping will resume on April 7th only. Digital downloads are of course not affected by this.

And it's not like we're leaving you without anything to listen to, such as the recent Gore Tech 12" ("Machine Throne", adn166) or the new previews of the coming Fausten album (adn167). See you in a few days, with more good news to announce.

Pre-orders now taken for Fausten's debut album (adn167).

Pre-orders now taken for Fausten's debut album (adn167).

The CD and records are mastered and cuts, the videos are coming in: Fausten's debut album (adn167) is ready for its release on April 22nd. This extremely heavy, dark and twisted new collaboration between Monster X and Stormfield is finally going to see the (black) light of the day. We've already shown you the trailer, but you can now listen to six tracks from this album as well as place your pre-orders for all formats (12" with bonus CD, CD or digital files). And remember: pre-orders get a rebate. So not only would you get your copy earlier than anybody else, but also cheaper.

Extra round of "Jelly" from Ruby My Dear

Ruby My Dear is at the moment putting the finishing touch to his second full length album, with this sequel to "Remains Of Shapes To Come" (adn157) planned for release on Ad Noiseam in a few month. This doesn't mean that you have to wait any longer to enjoy new material from this French musician, as he just released the digital exclusive "Jelly" EP (which still clocks at almost an hour) on the young Blue Sub label.

Ruby My Dear's "Jelly" is out today, and you can buy it as mp3 or FLAC from the Ad Noiseam store here. Enjoy, and don't forget that Ruby My Dear is playing quite a few dates all accross Europe pretty soon.

Announcing Fausten's debut album.

Announcing Fausten's debut album on Ad Noiseam.

Ad Noiseam welcomes a new act and announces its first release. Fausten is the collaborative project between Monster-X (known, among others, for his releases on Peace Off and Tigerbeat6) and Stormfield (the driving force behind the Combat Recordings imprint). While both musicians are usually better known for their hard dancefloor material, their new child, Fausten explores and showcases the new, modern way in which noise, drones and heavy beats can be combined with sharp and updated production quality.

A long time in the makiing, Fausten's first album (adn167) is a massive, oppressive and dark beasts which hits its listeners with its dark atmospheres and colossal weight and should find a way to your shelves closed to the releases of their new labelmates Oyaarss or of such acts as Cloaks and Dead Fader. This eponymous début album (which also features remixes by Oyaarss, Dadub and Ontal, as well as a video to the track "Punishment") will be released on April 23rd, 2013 and come in two formats: a full-length CD a four-track, DJ-compatble 12" EP (featuring the full CD added as a bonus) and as digital files. Pre-orders will be taken soon.

Below is a video trailer featuring several tracks from this album, which should give everybody a better glimpse at how Fausten sounds and looks like. Take it in, enjoy, and spread the word. More audio previews are on their way.
