We couldn't have dreamed of so many birthday parties celebration. What startedback in the Spring with five label nights celebrating the 10th anniversary of Ad Noiseam has now turned into a series of no less than 14 events taking place in 14 different cities in 10 different countries.
We're happy to announce that two more 10 Years Ad Noiseam birthday parties will take place in Russia in December. The first will be in Yekaterinenburg on December 2nd, the other in Moscow on December 3rd. The line-up for both events will include Enduser, Broken Note, Matta and Nicolas Chevreux.
Rejoice, it's this time again. October is always a fruitful month for Ad Noiseam, and we're happy to announce new releases by Enduser, Detritus, Igorrr and Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker for the 2011 salvo. We had already mentionned the latter upon the release of the "Simetría" EP at the beginning of this week, but you can now pre-order all these albums in all of their formats.
Click on each release name for more information and audio. You can now pre-order all these releases on vinyl, CD and mp3 and, as usual, pre-orders are getting a rebate, meaning that you don't only get your music before everybody else, but also for cheaper.
After years of waiting and expectations, Enduser finally comes back with a new album. This towering artist of the drum'n'bass and breakcore scene comes up here with an extremely important and soulful album in which his hard breaks and beats share the stage with much gentler melodies and atmospheres. A highly emotional album whose palette ranges from melancholy to rage, it is a new awe-inspiring album by a musician which proves again that his talent is multidimensional, humane and essential. (Get this on double LP (with full CD inside) / on CD / as digital files)
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).
