Friday freebie: some of you will go out and rave tonight, and some others are already feeling sleepy and tired. We have a solution for everybody: a full live set by The Teknoist, which will warm up the first and bring back the others to life.
The live-set below was recorded at this year's edition of the prestigious Glastonbury festival during The Teknoist'S highly remarked set (which also marked this musician birthday). It's wild, hard, pummelling but also detailled and intelligently crafted, as everything The Teknoist produces. And mind you, it contains quite a few tracks from both his recent "Trainwreck Magnetism" album (adn145) and its predecessor, "...Like a Hurricane Made Of Zombies" (adn103).
Click below to listen to this set, or right-click here to download it. Enjoy, and rave on.
You didn't think that they would stop at adn142"Fraktals" (adn142), would you? Ad Noiseam is proud to announce the forthcoming release of the duo that made a huge sensation in hard dubstep circles this year, Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker.
"Simetría" will be folloowed at the very beginning of November by the "Adhesion" full length CD, which features all the tracks from both EP, as well as two exclusive tunes and a remix by Loop Stepwalker of a track originally written by Niveau Zero. A tour de force in precision, strength and toughness, this full length album unfolds its massive low end, efficient beats and larger-than-life basslines with insolent talent, catchiness and bold weight. A new essential albums demonstrating the strength of well written, imaginative and original hard dubstep. Read about "Adhesion" (adn153)here, and pre-order your copy on CD there or as digital file here.
A new salvo of anthemic, harder-than-life dubstep from the Bulgarian and Spanish phenomenons that are Balkansky (a.k.a. Cooh) and Loop Stepwalker. This follow-up to their "Fraktals" EP shows how these two manage to write heavy and distorted tunes without ever falling in the current pitfalls of the genre. Free of "wobbly" or "filthy" clichés, here comes a record which will pack dancefloors, surprise delighted fans and once again affirms what a driving force these two musicians have become. (get this on 12" / as digital files)
Seven down and now more five to go. As everybody here shouldknow, 2011 is the tenth year of activity for Ad Noiseam, and we're celebrating this all throughout the world, bringing artists from the label to play at label parties all year long (and taking the occasion to blow some candles and eat some cake with the fans).
We're announcing a 12th of these birthday parties, and we this time go east, with the Bulgarian edition of the 10 Years Ad Noiseam party, which will take place in Sofia on Saturday, October 29th. The line-up there is solid as usual: DJ Hidden, Broken Note (for his first gig ever in this country), Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker, Cooh and yours truely, as well as the local acts Ogonek and Mocks.
Each and every article about Raoul Sinier mentions that this artist is not only a talented and respected musician, but also an imaginative and daring video artist. A new full length video "released" today is another occasion to confirm this.
We had already received a parodic video "press kit" about Raoul Sinier's latest album, "Guilty Cloaks" (adn146), and had already seen this musician present himself in a new, somewhat more indie manner with the "She's A Lord" video. Today's offering, made for the track "Summer Days" (taken from "Guilty Cloaks" as well) is a return to dystopian atmospheres for Raoul Sinier, and a mixture of mediums: drawings, 3D, animation are combined together in this new work.
Though we'd have to admit that we're not much into gaming over here, we were familar with the name "Assassin's Creed", and it's therefore quite something to have the Ad Noiseam released track "Sura" by Hecq (taken from the EP of the same name, adn128) used as an official soundtrack to this series's new game's trailer, "Assassin's Creed Revelations".
The video below is spreading like wildfire on the intertubes today and yes, the use of Hecq's "Sura" is official. This trailer can also be seen here, you can read more about the "Sura" EP there, and the game itself is apparently scheduled for November 15th. For the moment, here's for a couple of minutes of gameplay and good music:
