Update August 19th: we're back, and processing hundreds of email received last week. Yes, we know: the Ad Noiseam corporate building office was already unmanned two weeks ago, because of some shows and festival. But this time it's vacation time: your humble servant is taking a week off between the 9th and the 16th of August, far away from beats, bass and internet.
All emails and orders will be received, but will not be processed before the 17th. Operations will then resume as normal. Please have therefore a bit of patience: your messages and wishes are not lost in the void. But we all need to get a break from time to time.
Friday freebie: you can now download and listen to the hour-long show featuring Enduser and Nicolas Chevreux on Radio Liban on July 26th of this year.
A few days after having performed at Acousmatik's "Mad Parade II" party, we were invited by Radio Liban (Lebanon's national french-speaking channel) for an interview during Ziad Nawfal's "Ruptured" sessions. The show, which features a lengthy interview, a selection of tracks from recent Ad Noiseam releases and a 10 minutes long live-set by Enduser, can now be downloaded here (first half / second half).
People in North America, rejoice: Niveau Zero is hitting your shores in August, playing five gigs accross the continent. This is your chance to witness this very experienced act and dance to the heavy and infectious tracks of his "In_Sect" album.
Focusing on his new "Monster" EP (adn131) as well as the "Megasaurus" 12" on Ruff, this new mix also features some brand new material (for example of Bong-Ra fresh Wormskull project) as well as reworking of older tunes.
A little note to all online store customers: the Ad Noiseam corporate building office will be closed between this Thursday (july 22nd) and the following Saturday (July 31st), as your humble servants will be in galaxies far, far away, performing alongside Enduser at the Mad Parade in Beirut and the Norbergfestival in Sweden.
This means that while all your mailorder orders will be received and your items reserved, they will not be processed before the 31st. Shipping and emailing will then resume as normal.
This week's friday freebie is not taken from an Ad Noiseam releases, but is a lot bigger than just one track: you can now listen for free to all the live sets played during the "Ad Noiseam meets Killekill" party in Berlin on June 30th. This means full-length sets by Karsten Pflum, Matta and Hecq, as well as DJ sets by Weedbeat and your humble servant, directly streamble from Play.fm.
Do you remember the Enduser remix contest we announced a couple of months ago? More than 75 remixes were delivered, and the whole thing is entering its final stage. Now that Enduser, Fixt (who are hosting the whole thing) and your humble servant have made a selection of our favorite 20, it's your turn to vote and see who gets the crown of best "2/3" remixer. Voting is taking place there.
Remember a few weeks ago, when this site hosted an interview with Panacea to celebrate his podcast for Barcode Recordings? Here we are at it again, this time with Miike Hayward, a.k.a. The Teknoist, sitting down at the interviewee table with us and answering some questions about his music, past, present and future.
Not only a seminal figure of the British breakcore and hardcore scene, The Teknoist has been part of the Ad Noiseam family since the release in 2008 of his "Pillaged and Plundered" split record with Eustachian, followed a few months later by his first (and so far only) full length album, "...Like A Hurricane Made Of Zombies". We're therefore very happy that he was asked by Barcode to record one of their free "Filthcast" mix, which you can download and enjoy right here. And let's see what The Teknoist has to say about this:
