With Semiomime, Noel Wessels steps outside of the dancefloor he cherishes as DJ Hidden and The Outside Agency to rather focus on more cinematic and atmospheric moods. This was already the case with the "From Memory" album (adn139, 2011), then demonstrated again in March's "Spring" mix. This new "Summer" one is less glitchy, unfolding slowly from ambient tracks to thicker, more beat-based material, all the while staying very introvert and personal.
You can listen to Ad Noiseam's podcast #7, Semiomime's "Summer" nocturne here or below. The tracklisting is after the cut, and its predecessor is here. Tune back in three months for "Autumn" and remember that "Winter" will be followed by a brand new Semiomime album. Finally, note that Semiomime's "Nocturne" podcast series is not a first for Noel Wessels, who had already signed a six-part "Enclosed" odyssey as DJ Hdden.
Friday Freebie: we hope that you've been enjoying 2methyl's "Resilience", which is taken from this musician's upcoming "Layer 8" album. There's more on the menu from him tonight. This artist had prepared a medley for his previous "Orb" EP early last year, to present the whole thing in one short mix. What we're making available today follows the same idea: a trip through the whole "Layer 8" album, taking only a little more than 10 minutes and enabling you to get a better idea of this work.
Friday Freebie: the following track by Stavros Gasparatos, "Browning" is the shortest piece on his forthcoming "Expanded Piano" album (adn186, coming out on August 17th). A pivotal moment in the performance, it displays a rather "classical" use of the piano, but is followed in the album by more experimental moments, in which, for example, Stavros Gasparatos hits the instrument wooden frame to trigger his contact microphones. One of the more emotional pieces from the album, it should also appeal to people who have enjoyed Ben Lukas Boysen's "Gravity" album (adn168).

The most astute of you know that they already can stream a lot more than just this track over here, but we're aware that social platforms are where all the cool kids listen to their music. Therefore, click here or below to listen to "Resilience", a first full length track taken from 2methyl's "Layer 8":
Some of the previous artists featured in this series had chosen to focus almost entirely on their own material, some others had gone in a more DJ set direction; Gore Tech's episodes sits a bit in the middle, with a lot of tracks taken from "Futurphobia" and the rest being tracks written by his close friends. This podcast is a family affair of sort, and a great one at that.

Before these albums come out, though, we're having a pause: the Ad Noiseam imperial destroyer will not be manned from June 4th till June 26th. This means several things: -all orders for physical items placed in the Ad Noiseam online store will be shipped on June 29th only. Digital items will not be affected. -we're going to be a bit slow (at best) with emails.
Following yesterday's announcement of Stavros Gasparatos's upcoming "Expanded Piano" (adn186, coming out on August 17th) and of the long-awaited re-released on vinyl of Igorrr's "Nostril" (adn132lp, August 24th), we're happy to complete Ad Noiseam's summer line-up with the first full length by 2methyl. This album, called "Layer 8" bears the catalog number adn187 and will be officially released on July 13th. It is the second 2methyl release on Ad Noiseam, following last year's "Orb" EP.
You asked for it, we have been wanting to do it for a long time, and the time has finally come: Igorrr's "Nostril" classic will finally be released in its entirety on vinyl this Summer.
Several years after its original publication on CD (we sadly could not afford a vinyl release for this album back then), "Nostril" hasn't been available on vinyl so far, even though the "Baroquecore" record was his shorter EP pendant. We're correcting this, the album currently being pressed onto crisp, green vinyl records, which will come packaged in a full artwork sleeve, together with a free copy of the album on CD.
