Breakcore for the thinking, feeling man: Ruby My Dear's long awaited début album is an organic ride through open musical horizons. Sharp and efficient, beautiful and varied, these "Remains Of Shapes To Come" all fit together in a particularly coherent whole which puts back hard and broken music on the center stage. Songs rather than track, a complex balance rather an exploded insanity: Ruby My Dear is a master of controlled melting pot of genres and sounds and signs here an album which brings new blood, energy and enthusiasm to free-form, musically impressive electronic music. Call it breakcore, call it IDM, or hurry and find a new name, as these "Shapes To Come" are here to stay. (Get this on CD / as digital files)
Taking a break from the recording of their respective new albums, Niveau Zero and Matta, two acts at the core of Ad Noiseam's dubstep side, pair up again for two highly infectious and massive tunes. Not just the sum of Matta's pounding sharpness and Niveau Zero's club-smartness, but an actual sublimation of each of these musician's talent: both tracks on this new EP marry the weight and drive you could expect but do so with a great care for details and finesse. Molotov cocktails and riot gears have never sounded so fitting.Get this on 12" / as digital files
"Kuchidomeryou" is a seven minute short-movie of sort directed and partly written by Thimothée Matelin, a French artists who had already designed a Subheim t-shirt for Ad Noiseam. He travelled through Japan a year after the Fukushima catastrophy, and presents his images and thoughts about this country and its situation in this movie, to a soundtrack entirely written by Subheim (and mastered by Mobthrow) for the occasion.
Now that you have been mishandled, slapped and trampled by Whourkr's "4247 Snare Drums" album (adn158), we've been asked quite often what a live gig by this project from Igorr and Mulk could possibly look and sound like. Is it possible to re-create the sheer complexity, madness and weight of this album in a live environment? Are the guitars sampled? Is the singer a skinny, nerdy-looking guy? Fear not (or actually, fear more), as we present you here a whole live recording of "Arithmetic Punishment" shot recently in Rennes, France.
Igorrr on live guitars? Mulk out-pigging the audience? Here we are:
You can lisen to this mix here or below. Note that this shoudl also serve as a reminder that Enduser will perform live in Europe this Fall. We are still looking for gigs, and you can contact us or
