Now for something different: Raoul Sinier covers Siouxsie And The Banshees

Though it stayed complex and tricky, Raoul Sinier's latest album, "Guilty Cloaks" (adn146) was also the one in which this Paris-based producer showed his love for poppier beats and more classical song structure. And while all the tracks on this album were his creations, people who have been following him online might have noticed that he's currently having fun covering pop classics, mixing their influence and texts with his own particular sound. This was the case with an official Thom Yorke remix, later followed by some of original material by Metronomy, Blonde Redhead and others.

This time around, it's Siouxsie & The Banshees' 1981 classic "Sin In My Heart" who gets the Raoul Sinier cover treatment. You can listen to it here or below, and it is also included in this set of covers and remixes on Raoul Sinier's Soundcloud page.

Friday freebie: get yourself some Loop Stepwalker dancefloor madness.

Friday freebie: get yourself some Loop Stepwalker dancefloor madness.

Friday freebie: Loop Stepwalker (pictured above, right, next to Balkansky / Cooh) is feeling grateful for a year 2011 in which he not only had two records and a CD out on Ad Noiseam, but also several other net releases and a myiard of shows all across Europe (including the Maschinenfest festival, where the photo above was taken). And while a lot of us are recovering from NYE-induced hangovers, his way of thanking all his fans is to hammer the nail even deeper with a hard and pounding new drum'n'bass track.

This tune, called "Watch your back" can be listened to here or below. And, yes, you can also download it for free. Time to be grateful back to Mr Stepwalker.

   
Announcing Larvae's 4th album with a new trailer, video and artwork.

Anncouncing Larvae's 4th album with a new trailer, video and artwork.

We're happy to kick off the new year with very exciting news: Larvae's fourth full length album, the awaited follow-up to 2008's "Loss Leader" has been completed and will be released this Spring on Ad Noiseam.

Entitled "Exit Strategy", Matthew Jeanes's new album is yet another change for Larvae, who chose to go further the delicate and emotional road paved with the first half of "Loss Leader". No sampling, no guests, no dancefloor tune, but long subtle "instrumental songs" of careful electronics and guitars.

There's still some time to go before the release of "Exit Strategy", but while excerpts and pre-orders are still to come, here comes a first trailer to this album, as well as (below) a new full video to the track "Vows & Promises" as well as the album's artwork. Enjoy, take this an as excuse to dive again into Larvae's past discography, and watch this space for more information about this album.

A NYE present from TechDiff's studio.

This present wasn't there in time for Christmas, but here's way to celebrate New Years Eve for the musicians among us. While putting the finishing touches to his long-awaited Ad Noiseam debut, TechDiff (a.k.a. the brain pictured above) has gathered a full folder of sounds, patches, Reaktor toys and images for everybody to enjoy, tweak and work upon.

These samples and tools are available for everybody to download for free. A .rar file for Windows is available here, and a .zip one for Mac there. Enjoy, party well into 2012, and best wishes for the new year.

Update Feb 18th: the files have been re-uploaded, the links above have been updated, they should work again.

Pre-orders now taken for the new records by Hecq, DJ Hidden & Broken Note, Niveau Zero & Balkansky.

Yes, 2011 is over, and it's time to now focus on the next year. As you might have read a few days ago, 2012 is going to start pretty nicely for Ad Noiseam, and even more now since the first two EPs of next year are ready to be read about, listened to and preordered.

Starting today, you can pre-order the following two records (and their digital versions). Both will be released on Ad Noiseam on the 23rd of January. As usual, people pre-ordering these items are getting a rebate. So not only will you get your record (or your files) faster, but also for cheaper.

  • Hecq "Enceladus" - Ad Noiseam adn149 - 12" / digital
    Hecq's follow-up to "Sura" and "Avenger" is a new evolution for this producer, turning his percussive dubstep into something both sharper and more humane. Featuring Mobthrow, Skyence and Knight Riderz.
    Information and audio here. Pre-order "Enceladus" on vinyl here, as digital files there.

  • DJ Hidden & Broken Note / Niveau Zero & Balkansky "Existence / Obey" - Ad Noiseam adn155 - 12" / digital
    A beast of a record, with four veterans Ad Noiseam producers collaborating into the most cohesive, detailled and efficient combination of dubstep and drum'n'bass to date.

    DJ Hidden & Broken Note / Niveau Zero & Balkansky - Existence / Obey - adn155
    Thursday, 22 December 2011 13:05
    ImageFour confirmed, veteran Ad Noiseam artists and a myriad of versions, edits and corrections ping-ponged between all of them. "Existence" and "Obey" are the carefully laid-out, detailled and fresh results of musicians having fun with each other's material and proving how at ease they are with both dubstep and drum'n'bass. DJ Hidden's sharpness, Broken Note's epic proportions, Niveau Zero's clever open-mindedness and Balkansky's meticulousness: yes they managed to pack all of this in these two highly cohesive tracks. A must-have for anybody into any of these acts. Get this on 12" / as digital files

    Hecq - Enceladus - adn149
    Thursday, 22 December 2011 13:00
    Image A follow-up of sort to "Sura", "Enceladus" is another evolution for Hecq: his pristine dubstep gets enriched here with even more encompassing soundscapes and humane melodies. Collaborating with Skyence on the title track, Hecq has given birth to a very coherent record mixing cinematic atmospheres, huge percussions and a light nod to retro tonalities. Add to this a mischievous crunk remix by Knight Riderz and a dancefloor explosion by Mobthrow, and you get a compact yet exhaustive snapshot of Hecq's unmissable talent. Get this on 12" / as digital files
