On the heels of the release of his "Fraktals" EP with Loop Stepwalker (adn142), Balkansky prepared a long mix featuring a lot of new tracks and remixes, some of which will see the light of the day on Ad Noiseam in the second half of 2011. And if that wasn't enough, Ivan Shopov (a.ka. Balkansky and Cooh, for those of you who haven't been listening) went with a second course in the form of a mix under his new, techno moniker, Drum Kid
The whole thing can be listened to below or here, and the tracklist to the Balkansky set is to be found after the break.
This week's edition of our irregular "Friday Freebie" series is again coming out from the generous Matta, who were just invited by the London based blog Make It Good for an interesting interview and a new mix session (remember theseones, right)?
This mix, which features a lot of new tracks, can be listened to below or right here, and we'd definitely recommend you to click on this link and check what Matta have to say about their debut, their shows, and their future.
By now, most of you all of you should have read that Ad Noiseam is turning 10 years old this Spring, and celebrating with a variety of big events you shouldwillattend. To celebrate, Ad Noiseam's yours truely and long-running electronic webzine Igloo sat down last week and had a little chat about the past of the label, the current situation of the electronic scene in Berlin and what can be said about the future, if anything.
Loop Stepwalker recently got behind his mixing board again (remember his first time?), this time for a guest mix on the accurately named Filth.fm. This fourty minutes combination of heavy basses and gritty beats was broadcast yesterday, and is now available for all of you to listen to and enjoy.
This mix is here or below, together with its playlist. And don't forget to check out what Loop Stepwalker does when he's not DJ-ing tracks, mainly his "Fraktals" EP co-written with Balkansky (adn142).
Friday Freebie, and what for one. This week, the free tune comes from no other than Enduser, who has decided that Christmas was coming very early this year, and has placed an old but unreleased tune on his Soundcloud page for everybody to listen, enjoy and download. Melodic, percussive, soulful and perfectly edited, it's a typical grand Enduser track as we love them.
Years have passed since the hurricane, but The Teknoist has never been as active as he is today. And when we write "today", we really mean it, as this day marks the official release of The Teknoist's second full length album, "Trainwreck Magnetism" (Ad Noiseam adn145). This album, which sees our favorite British madman pair up on some tracks with the likes of King Cannibal, Hecq & Exillon, Drumcorps, Mu-ziq, Septic Insurgent and others, is another solid and burning hot brick in the discography of this pivotal name of both the breakcore and hardcore scenes. And it is here: you can get the CD there or the digital version (on mp3 and FLAC) here.
After Enduser, Exillon, Mad EP or your humble servant, it's Igorrr's turn to sit down for an interview with the California-based, internet-streamed Solipsistic Nation show. Throughout this interview, we get a better view at the creative process, past and motives of this fast-rising French madman, and also get to listen to a recent live-show recorded in Stockholm in March.
