With "Everyday Explanations", Detritus doesn't only come back from a short-lived retirement but also operates a strong shift toward more home-listening material. Profound enough to lose yourself in and focusing on atmospheres rather than on beats, this album is the one in which Detritus's obsessive care for the details is best put to use and results in the what is surely this artist's most surprising, personal and subtle release to date.

While we wait for Igorrr to bring a sequel to his remarkable and praised "Nostril" album, here comes a extensive (and budget priced) re-release of his first two albums, originally self-released. These 25 tracks document this musician's past and provide us with new tunes mixing classical baroque, cut up dubstep, metal sensibilities and sheer insanities. Igorrr has now become an essential name for everybody into extreme music, and he shows us here how he got there. An unmissable document. (Get this on double CD / as digital files)
Out now on Ad Noiseam and available is the new, second EP by Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker, "Simetría" (adn152, vinyl and digital). This follow-up to "Fraktals" (adn142) features four new tracks of hard but melodic, club-oriented but soulful massive dubstep, and is the last piece of wax before the release in November of the "Adhesion" album (adn153, which you can already pre-order).
Friday freebie: some of you will go out and rave tonight, and some others are already feeling sleepy and tired. We have a solution for everybody: a full live set by The Teknoist, which will warm up the first and bring back the others to life.
The live-set below was recorded at this year's edition of the prestigious Glastonbury festival during The Teknoist'S highly remarked set (which also marked this musician birthday). It's wild, hard, pummelling but also detailled and intelligently crafted, as everything The Teknoist produces. And mind you, it contains quite a few tracks from both his recent "Trainwreck Magnetism" album (adn145) and its predecessor, "...Like a Hurricane Made Of Zombies" (adn103).
Click below to listen to this set, or right-click here to download it. Enjoy, and rave on.
You didn't think that they would stop at adn142"Fraktals" (adn142), would you? Ad Noiseam is proud to announce the forthcoming release of the duo that made a huge sensation in hard dubstep circles this year, Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker.
"Simetría" will be folloowed at the very beginning of November by the "Adhesion" full length CD, which features all the tracks from both EP, as well as two exclusive tunes and a remix by Loop Stepwalker of a track originally written by Niveau Zero. A tour de force in precision, strength and toughness, this full length album unfolds its massive low end, efficient beats and larger-than-life basslines with insolent talent, catchiness and bold weight. A new essential albums demonstrating the strength of well written, imaginative and original hard dubstep. Read about "Adhesion" (adn153)here, and pre-order your copy on CD there or as digital file here.
A new salvo of anthemic, harder-than-life dubstep from the Bulgarian and Spanish phenomenons that are Balkansky (a.k.a. Cooh) and Loop Stepwalker. This follow-up to their "Fraktals" EP shows how these two manage to write heavy and distorted tunes without ever falling in the current pitfalls of the genre. Free of "wobbly" or "filthy" clichés, here comes a record which will pack dancefloors, surprise delighted fans and once again affirms what a driving force these two musicians have become.

Seven down and now more five to go. As everybody here shouldknow, 2011 is the tenth year of activity for Ad Noiseam, and we're celebrating this all throughout the world, bringing artists from the label to play at label parties all year long (and taking the occasion to blow some candles and eat some cake with the fans).
We're announcing a 12th of these birthday parties, and we this time go east, with the Bulgarian edition of the 10 Years Ad Noiseam party, which will take place in Sofia on Saturday, October 29th. The line-up there is solid as usual: DJ Hidden, Broken Note (for his first gig ever in this country), Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker, Cooh and yours truely, as well as the local acts Ogonek and Mocks.
