Balskansky & Loop Stepwalker remix contest: and the winners are...

A month and more than 150 entries later, the time has come to announce the winners of the "8.9" remix contest, organized by Samplephonics, Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker and Ad Noiseam. We have received a lot more remixes than we thought, spent hours and hours checking them all, and are happy to hear that many people did their best to come out with new material built on the sounds of this track.

We chose three tracks which, in our opinion, stand out and will receive prizes from Samplephonics, Ad Noiseam, Se, Proppelerhead, Soundcloud and Point Blank, as well as seven others which stood out and deserve to be mentionned here. Check the result below, and get in touch if you are one of the winners. If you are not, we are still very thankful that you participated to this contest, and had a good time listening to your remixes. Note that all the entries can be listened to here (watch out, this is a very heavy page).

Read below for the winners and prizes...

Underhill - Silent Siren - adn156
Thursday, 02 February 2012 02:36
ImageSomebody will need to come up with a genre name for Underhill's “Silent Siren”. With music written by Dean Rodell, Balkansky / Cooh and Current Value and vocals by Martina Astner and MC Coppa, this album is as coherent as its line-up is improbable. Trip-hop, drum'n'bass, gothic atmospheres and hip hop: all these elements are molten into each other with great care, creating an impressive work which is far more than the sum of its parts. Try it at home, then try it on a huge PA: Underhill's “Silent Siren” is a multi-faceted creation which just invites its listener to dive deeper. (Get this on LP+CD / on CD / as digital files )
Friday freebie: wake up with a hard, fast mix by Cooh.

Friday freebie: wake up with a hard, fast mix by Cooh.

Friday Freebie: people reading this might know Ivan Shopov mostly for his Balkansky downtempo and dubstep moniker, or as part of the Underhill project. But one shouldn't overlook Cooh, the name under which he's been packing up drum'n'bass and hardcore dancefloors for many years. It's with this project that he offers us this week a half an hour mix recorded for something called "Radio Record" (about which we have no information).

Full of Cooh tracks but also featuring the likes of DJ Hidden & Eye-D, Counterstrike, The Panacea and others, this fast-paced mix is the perfect thing to either wake up to or get pumped full of energy in preparation for the week-end. Enjoy it here or below and rave away.


More Lamb skeewering, this time from Roel Funcken.

More Lamb skeewering, this time from Roel Funcken.

A lot of people (rightfully) enjoy Lamb's music over here at Ad Noiseam. We had an entry to this act's remix contest from Subheim on Monday, from Balkansky on Wednesday, and it's today Roel Funcken that submits a remix to this competition, under the Funckarma moniker. This makes things even harder for us to say which of these tracks Lamb will pick (but we somewhat hope that one of them will make it).

Anyhow, Roel Funcken's remix is here or below. Enjoy, and don't forget to check Subheim's and Balkansky's remixes of this tune.

Another Lamb remix, this time from Balkansky.

Another Lamb remix, this time from Balkansky.

After Subheim on Monday, it is now Balkansky's turn to try his hands and knobs at the current remix contest organized by Lamb. And just like Subheim's tracks, Ivan Shopov's reversion of "Butterfly Effect" is quite something. It's already hard for us to tell which one is our favorite of the two, and we hope that one of these two tracks will be the one picked by Lamb to be featured on their coming EP. Let's knock on wood.

Anyway, you don't have any choice to make, as you can listen to this Balkansky remix here or below (while the Subheim one is here). Enjoy.

Listen to a Subheim remix of Lamb's "Butterfly Effect"

While we battle our way through more than 10 hours of remixes of Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker's "8.9" submitted for the contest announced here a few weeks ago, here's another remix for you to enjoy. Subheim is on the other side of a similar contest this time around, having taken part of a remix competition organized by no less than Lamb, for the track "Butterfly Effect", off their "5" album.

You can listen to Subheim's entry here or below. We have no idea whether this will win or not (but surely hope so), but, in any case, this is quite a splendid track that Subheim came up with with Lamb's material, and is worth many listens.

Not so silent sirens: an introduction to Underhill
Friday, 24 February 2012 01:05


All of you who read this website (or follow Ad Noiseam on various social websites) should now have heard about Underhill, whose first album, "Silent Siren", will be rleeased in a few weeks. But even though you might have heard a little bit from them or seen a short teaser of their coming video, we guess that many people do not really know who, what (and why) is Underhill. Three drum'n'bass musicians, an MC and a female singer from the metal scene is a pretty rare combination. We sat down with Martina Astner, Ivan Shopov and Dean Rodell to get some more information about Underhill:


Can you present shortly the five members of Underhill?
Dean: UnderHill is Ivan Shopov (Balkansky, Cooh, Drumkid), Tim Eliot (Current Value, Machine Code), Marvin Hay (MC Coppa), Martina Astner (Therion, Dreams Of Sanity) & myself Dean Rodell (also of Machine Code). To shortly break down each and one of us is pretty hard as the output from all individually is pretty intensive to say the least... I suppose loosely we are all connected through the d'n'b scene one way or another.

Preorders now taken for Oyaarss's "Bads" (adn159)

Preorders now taken for Oyaarss's "Bads" (adn159)

Pre-ordes are now taken for Oyaarss's debut album, "Bads" (adn159), which will be released by Ad Noiseam on March 12th, 2012. And not only that, but you can now read about this impressive album while listening to excerpts from it here. Once convinced, head over here to get a copy of the CD, or there for its digital version (on mp3 or FLAC). And as usual, remember that pre-orders get a rebate, so not only will you get your copy before anybody else, but also for cheaper.

Here's an excerpt already, with the track "Parejošs kaut kas" (here are the Youtube / Soundcloud links, so you can repost it around)

Bleak, fiercely heavy, distorted and yet so close to the soul: Oyaarss's debut album is an impressive work of pulsions, subtlety and coldness. Tapping from electronic experimentations as much as from metal atmospheres, "Bads" builds massive tracks of noisy percussions towering on the most desolate icy soundscapes. Something to close you eyes to or to head-bang along, a highly gifted album of gritty strings, antagonistic beats and detailed builds-up; a colossal, self-imposing work of extremely rare power and depth.
