"Samurai" is the fourth album by Dean Rodell and Current Value and their first for Ad Noiseam. It is not the first time that these two musicians are active for the label, though, as they are also part of Underhill, whose to albums ("Silent Siren" and "Prologue") were also released by Ad Noiseam.
Machinecode's fourth full length album is the one in which Current Value and Dean Rodell let their creativity flow wild. Stylistically diverse, daring in its experiments and rich of their production expertise, this is an album which includes dancefloor-packing tracks but also goes further. "Samurai" is as much the product of technical mastery as it is a work of soulful beauty: crystal-clear drum'n'bass, deep low-frequencies, innovative beat-work and evocative soundscapes form a coherent whole of the kind which is too rare in this genre.
No chickens and no piano this time: below is the official video to the track "Antenna" by Swarm Intelligence, which we had already posted here, and which is taken from this artist's forthcoming Ad Noiseam début album, "Faction" (Ad Noiseam adn183), to be released on November 10th.
The "Antenna" video was prepared by The29Nov, who have quite a lot more work to check out over there.
A couple of chickens, plenty of seeds, a miniature piano, and Igorrr's love for the weird and the nonsensical. There is little to say about this musician's latest tongue-in-cheek video, but here comes a click which might brighten your day a bit.
Friday Freebie: the day are getting shorter, the air is getting colder, pumpkins are pumping in every shop window and on every flyer. It's Halloween time again. DJ Hidden will be a master of ceremony for a late Halloween celebration on Nov. 8th in Bristol this year, and has just recorded a new "Hell-O-Ween" mix for Therapy Sessions, who are putting up that night.
You can listen to this new mix here or below. Enjoy, and stock up on candy.
Oyaarss's third album combines the weight and harsh tones of "Bads" with the poetic atmospheres of "Smaida greizi nakamiba". Born out of cold Latvian winters and of collaboration with like-minded musicians and authors, it is a work of both colossal weight and evocative beauty. Rich in emotions, "Zemdega" is an album which twists the rules of electronic music to give birth to a wide, evocative and deeply humane musical lanscape.
Ben Lukas Boysen also recorded a mix for Sounds Of A Tired City, enriching the interview with a 28-track selection of atmospheric, introvert and often acoustic sounds. This is our "Friday Freebie" this week, which you can listen below or there (and read the interview here).
