We're two weeks away from the release of Monolog's new album, the dense, hard-hitting and heavy "2 Dots Left" (adn172, "pre-orderable" on CD here and as digital files there). In order to better present this work and as an introduction of sort to his concerts at this year's editions of the Maschinenfest and Burn The Machine festivals, Monolog has recorded a live-set which you can now listen to (as well as download) for free.
Featuring mostly material from "2 Dots Left", as well as several yet-untitled, unreleased tracks, this highly percussive, ever-changing (and better listened-to very loud) set should give a better idea of what to expect with the album as well as on the dancefloors wherever this Danish artist performs. Enjoy.
We're slowly getting closer to the release of DJ Hidden's third full length effort, the "Enclosed" double album (adn173, "pre-orderable" here on CD and there as digital downloads) and while we have a few more things planned for all of you in the coming weeks, DJ Hidden is starting to let out some sounds from his "Enclosed" recording sessions.
The non-album "Save Point" bonus track is the first extra we let slip out. You can download it for free by going to Facebook and "liking" the official DJ Hidden page. You'll get a download link as soon as you credit this artist with some sweet extra internet points (to which we should add that you are more than welcome to also "like" the Ad Noiseam page).
Enjoy, and watch this space for more "Enclosed" extras.
Out now and available on CD and as digital files is one of Ad Noiseam's most evocative and original releases of the recent times, as well as the label's first directly linked with a theatre soundtrack. Stavros Gasparatos's detailled, deep and mesmerezing "Seven" album (adn170) is officially released today.
“Seven” is the album presentation of the soundtrack to a stage performance by Stavros Gasparatos, one of Greece's leading modern composers and sound-designers. Mature, coherent and very subtle, it is a beautiful journey through sharp electronic music and modern classical instrumentation. Evocative and powerful, this album carries the richness of the original live show, creates a rich sonic imagery and takes its listeners along a mysterious but elegant story.
We are happy and proud to be able to present Stavros Gasparatos's music to our audience, as it is a particularly beautiful, intelligent and interesting experience which we hope we can share with a broad audience.
Friday freebie: we're getting very close to the release of Stavros Gasparator's new album ("Seven", adn172, coming out next Monday). And while a lot of people (at least in Greece) are familiar with this composer and sound-designer's work, many might not have had the luck to listen to his music yet.
We had a long summer pause this year (busy as we are with the coming third edition of the Burn The Machine festival), but a lot of new music was beging written for you, which we are now getting ready to unveil. Four full-lengths, two new artists on the roster, two new albums from acts you know already: Ad Noiseam is happy to announce the release this Autumn of:
Stavros Gasparatos "Seven" - adn170 (CD) - September 30th The first release for this Autumn (coming out in a week) is a new album by an artist we are very proud of being able to have on Ad Noiseam, as his music is at the same time very original and extremely deep. "Seven" is the album presentation of the soundtrack to a stage performance by Stavros Gasparatos, one of Greece's leading modern composers and sound-designers. Mature, coherent and very subtle, it is a beautiful journey through sharp electronic music and modern classical instrumentation. Evocative and powerful, this album carries the richness of the original live show, creates a rich sonic imagery and takes its listeners along a mysterious but elegant story.

Monolog "2 Dots Left" - adn172 (CD) - October 21st The second newcomer to Ad Noiseam this Autumn is an experienced musician, but also a (so far) very underrated one. Time to correct this. 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.

DJ Hidden "Enclosed" - adn173 (double CD) - October 28th 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.

It's been a while since we've heard a full mix by Matta. The duo is still very active, though, and just recorded a podcast for the UKBassMusic website. Featuring 23 tracks (either their own, their remixes, and material by like-minded musicians), this UKBMix013 should give you a nice idea of what Matta are about at the moment. Enjoy here or below.
