Out today: new records by Hecq, DJ Hidden & Broken Note, Niveau Zero & Balkansky

Here they are, out and available. Ad Noiseam is happy to present its first release of 2012 in the form of two new EPs, by Hecq on the one side ("Enceladus", adn149) and the all star DJ Hidden & Broken Note / Niveau Zero & Balkansky ("Existence / Obey", adn155) on the other side.

Hecq "Enceladus" (adn149 - info / 12" / digital):
A follow-up of sort to "Sura", "Enceladus" is another evolution for Hecq: his pristine dubstep gets enriched here with even more encompassing soundscapes and humane melodies. Collaborating with Skyence on the title track, Hecq has given birth to a very coherent record mixing cinematic atmospheres, huge percussions and a light nod to retro tonalities. Add to this a mischievous crunk remix by Knight Riderz and a dancefloor explosion by Mobthrow, and you get a compact yet exhaustive snapshot of Hecq's unmissable talent.

DJ Hidden & Broken Note / Niveau Zero & Balkansky "Existence / Obey" (adn155 - info / 12" / digital)
Four confirmed, veteran Ad Noiseam artists and a myriad of versions, edits and corrections ping-ponged between all of them. "Existence" and "Obey" are the carefully laid-out, detailled and fresh results of musicians having fun with each other's material and proving how at ease they are with both dubstep and drum'n'bass. DJ Hidden's sharpness, Broken Note's epic proportions, Niveau Zero's clever open-mindedness and Balkansky's meticulousness: yes they managed to pack all of this in these two highly cohesive tracks. A must-have for anybody into any of these acts.

Friday freebie: two live excerpts from Hecq.

Friday freebie: in time for everybody to prepare for his new "Enceladus" EP (Ad Noiseam adn149, coming January 23rd), Hecq presents this week two excerpts from recent live shows for a total of 30 minutes of IDM, dubstep and techno good taste. Both can be listened to for free below, and feature both tracks by this musician as well as his labelmates and others.

The first excerpt was recorded on January 8th in Berlin and features, besides Hecq's music, a track by Roel Funcken off his "Vade" album (adn122) and TechDiff's remix of Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker's "Kora" (from the "Fraktals" EP and the "Adhesion" CD). The second is only a couple of days older, recorded in Leipzig on January 6th. Click below to listen to and enjoy parts of these live sets.

Igorrr, now with guitars from Mayhem and Gorgoroth inside.

Here is a piece of news for the ones of you with the longest hair and the blackest souls: not only is Igorrr putting the finish touches to the third album of his Whourkr metal project (expected this Spring on Ad Noiseam), but he's been joined in the recording of his fourth Igorrr album by none other than Teloch, better known to be the live guitar player of Mayhem as well as a member of Gorgoroth (pictured above, not right), Nidingr and 1349, among other black metal outfits. Igorrr and Teloch are working together on at least one track on this coming album, and there might be more. Also featured on this tune is a vacuum cleaner.

New (audio) interview with Enduser & Bong-Ra
Do you remember that we posted Mobthrow's full set from the 10 Years Ad Noiseam party which took place in Lyon on October 8th 2011 a few weeks ago? Now is time to also check what was happening backstage at the same time, mainly a pretty long interview done by Riotbeat with Enduser and Bong-Ra. Press play below to listen to it and realize how much Enduser sounds like Tom Waits.

Now for something different: Raoul Sinier covers Siouxsie And The Banshees

Now for something different: Raoul Sinier covers Siouxsie And The Banshees

Though it stayed complex and tricky, Raoul Sinier's latest album, "Guilty Cloaks" (adn146) was also the one in which this Paris-based producer showed his love for poppier beats and more classical song structure. And while all the tracks on this album were his creations, people who have been following him online might have noticed that he's currently having fun covering pop classics, mixing their influence and texts with his own particular sound. This was the case with an official Thom Yorke remix, later followed by some of original material by Metronomy, Blonde Redhead and others.

This time around, it's Siouxsie & The Banshees' 1981 classic "Sin In My Heart" who gets the Raoul Sinier cover treatment. You can listen to it here or below, and it is also included in this set of covers and remixes on Raoul Sinier's Soundcloud page.

Friday freebie: get yourself some Loop Stepwalker dancefloor madness.

Friday freebie: get yourself some Loop Stepwalker dancefloor madness.

Friday freebie: Loop Stepwalker (pictured above, right, next to Balkansky / Cooh) is feeling grateful for a year 2011 in which he not only had two records and a CD out on Ad Noiseam, but also several other net releases and a myiard of shows all across Europe (including the Maschinenfest festival, where the photo above was taken). And while a lot of us are recovering from NYE-induced hangovers, his way of thanking all his fans is to hammer the nail even deeper with a hard and pounding new drum'n'bass track.

This tune, called "Watch your back" can be listened to here or below. And, yes, you can also download it for free. Time to be grateful back to Mr Stepwalker.

Announcing Larvae's 4th album with a new trailer, video and artwork.

Anncouncing Larvae's 4th album with a new trailer, video and artwork.

We're happy to kick off the new year with very exciting news: Larvae's fourth full length album, the awaited follow-up to 2008's "Loss Leader" has been completed and will be released this Spring on Ad Noiseam.

Entitled "Exit Strategy", Matthew Jeanes's new album is yet another change for Larvae, who chose to go further the delicate and emotional road paved with the first half of "Loss Leader". No sampling, no guests, no dancefloor tune, but long subtle "instrumental songs" of careful electronics and guitars.

There's still some time to go before the release of "Exit Strategy", but while excerpts and pre-orders are still to come, here comes a first trailer to this album, as well as (below) a new full video to the track "Vows & Promises" as well as the album's artwork. Enjoy, take this an as excuse to dive again into Larvae's past discography, and watch this space for more information about this album.
