It's heavy bass and stylish shirt time on Ad Noiseam today: not only is "Adhesion", the full length album created by Balkansky and Loop Stepwalker released and available, but so is the t-shirt that some of you might have seen as their recent concerts.
Following the "Simetría" and "Fraktals" records, "Adhesion" (Ad Noiseam adn153) is the crowning jewel of the collaboration between Bulgaria's Balkansky (also known in drum'n'bass circles as Cooh) and Spain's Loop Stepwalker. Reprising all the tracks from these 2 EPs, it also features three exclusive tunes, one of them being a remix of Niveau Zero's "I Believe in". "Adhesion" is now available on CD and as digital files. You can read more about it and listen to more extracts from it here.
Also available today is a new t-shirt celebrating the release of "Adhesion" and the previous two EPs. Displaying both acts' names and the fractal cube shown on these releases's, it is produced on organic and sweat-shop free cotton, as has become the rule on Ad Noiseam. You can get this t-shirt here.
There's no stopping Hecq's track "Sura" from being used in videos: after being featured in the new "Assassin's Creed" trailer, in an Audi concept short and in two director's portfolios (one, two), it is the turn of the Austrian "alternative" jeweller And I (whose creations have apparently been worn by some wellknowncelebrities) to use this track for an advertisment. A short version is here, and longer there and below. Depending on your workplace, this might be categorized as Not Safe For Work. Now don't be surprised if the next time you hear from Hecq, he's being checked into rehab in some Californian insitution.
Broken Note performed a very special performance last week-end at the LUFF festival in Lausanne (CH). Usually a solo, computer-based project, this act presented there a full show with live-drummer for the second time ever.
Super heavy dubstep, broken rhythms, distortion and walls of bass, plus drums? Here's the moving proof that it works extremely well, with this video shot at this show (and another one under the break). Coming soon to another festival near you.
Friday Freebie: Not only did Detritus's come back mean a new album, the very recently released "Everyday Explanations" (adn148), this act has also taken it to the stage again with several gigs presenting his new full length, such as ones at the 10 Years Ad Noiseam parties in Bordeaux and Lyon a couple of weeks ago.
Those of you who were here can attest of the quality, drive and depth of Detritus's new shows. And for those of you who were not there comes here a two-part recording of Detritus's show in Lyon on October 9th, 2011, as part of both a 10 Years Ad Noiseam birthday party and the 2011 edition of the Riddim Collision festival.
The first part is here, and the second part below. Press play, enjoy, and don't forget to check out Detritus's new "Everyday Explanations" album (or the rest of his discography, actually).
Taking place at this insanely good-sounding new club, this 2011 edition of the "Burn The Machine" festival will feature several Ad Noiseam artists: The Teknoist, Hecq, Mobthrow and Nicolas Chevreux will play and spin alongside Current Value, Sinister Souls, The Panacea, Dean Rodell, The Sect and many others. A full line-up is to be found here.
You can now buy tickets for this festival (15 Euros for two days with two rooms each, in other words, very cheap) straight from the Ad Noiseam online store here. See you there.
