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.
Start your week with some loud beats and reminisce the week-end's booty shaking with a new minimix by Spanish bass-master Loop Stepwalker, in which he not only presents a couple of unreleased collaboration tracks (with Niveau Zero and Dub Elements), but also several tracks of his new, less dubstep and more electro, clubby moniker, Voltage. No laser show or funky helmet yet, but these new sounds are certainly aimed at big-system, crowded dancefloors.
You can listen to this mix here (where you can downooad it as well) or below:
Friday freebie: what we have for you this week is not a collection of free tracks or an artist live set, but an unrequested fan mix, which surprised us even more as it comes from a country where Ad Noiseam's music doesn't seem to be the most natural choice for people to listen to, Brazil. And on top of that, it was apparently mixed entirely on vinyl.
Time to show us what you are made off: grab your samplers, synths and other instruments, as Ad Noiseam and Fixt invite you to remix the anthemic "First" track, taken from this artist's "In_Sect" album (adn129).
