This winter, it will indeed sound a bit different: Ad Noiseam is proud to present below three trailers to "From Memory" (adn139), the début album by Semiomime, the new project by Noel Wessels, known here as DJ Hidden and half of The Outside Agency. No sound excerpt or more information yet, but believe us, this one will be something very special.
Here's the first trailer, there are more after the fold.
Update: we're back, and processing all orders now. Allow for a bit of delay, but things are getting back to normal. Ad Noiseam's been pretty active recently, don't you think? With no less than seven new releases out in the last two weeks (Igorrr, Subheim, Broken Note, Black Lung EP, Black Lung album, Matta EP, Matta album), it's high time for a little break to get some energy back. In other words: it's vacation times. Therefore, the Ad Noiseam corporate headquarters will be closed from Monday November 15th to Wednesday, November 24th.
No parcels will be shipped during this time. Orders will be received and items reserved, but we'll be able to ship them on Nov 25th only.
Fifth and last spotlight article in our series about Ad Noiseam's Autumn 2010 releases, this time about Subheim's long-awaited "No Land Called Home". Coming two years after this act's "Approach" debut, Subheim's sophomore effort is this band's rise to maturity and (hopefully) long-deserved recognition. This album is a theatre of transformations and relocations: acoustic and organic sound have taken to the front of the stage, providing this act's introspective and grandiose songs with a more humane touch.
Subhim's new album is the fruit of both long efforts, a clear artistic vision and the collaboration between several musicians and vocalists, resulting in a whole which Ad Noiseam is particularely proud to produce. Do not pass on it, and spread the word: Subheim have now relocated to the UK, making it a lot easier for them to play shows across Europe. If you are a promoter, get in touch to organize a gig such as their remarked concert at the Maschinenfest 2010 (video below).
You can find more information here, and enjoy some audio excerpts and videos below.
The winter is not really there yet, and probably even less so in Mallorca, where Loop Stepwalker is based, but this didn't stop this new Ad Noiseam signing (whose first release for the label will be a collaboration with Balkansky called "Fraktals", to be released soon-ish) to prepare and record a "Winter 2010" mix for all of us to listen, enjoy and dance to.
The mix is there or below, and features quite a lot of new tracks, both by Loop Stepwalker and others. Enjoy, this should make you move enough to stop the freezing process.
To err is human, but that's not the point of r.fm. This slick-looking, Sweden-based website might look at first like something focusing on the more techno and minimal side of things, but, lo and behold, it has also published articles and mixes by both Matta and Niveau Zero recently.
The name of the Wunschkonzert website could be translated in "wished for concert" or "concert à la carte". I have little background information about this site, but the great Karsten Pflum is gracing the latest episode of this size with a 15-track live set in which he mixed both his material (including two from his "Nemo Loon" EP, adn130) with some from friends such as Hecq or Bjørn Svin.
