A couple of weeks after hosting a session with Enduser, San Francisco's podcast series and radioshow Solipsistic Nation is now lending their turntables to Mad EP, for a long, intense and wild new mix. This set, which you can listen to here (or below) contains a lot of new Mad EP tracks, as well as pearls from Ad Noiseam discography, from "Eating Movies" to "The Madlands Trilogy" or "Bass.hed". Click here for more information about this show, and check the tracklisting below.
It's all in night vision, it's pretty much focused on the stage, but it's also half an hour of head-nodding beats and heavy basses: somebody has had the good idea to shoot three videos of Karsten Pflum showcasing his "Nemo Loon" record (adn130) at the Impulse party in Berlin last week. Here's the first, and the other two are after the cut.
Here's a very nice looking short video shot and edited by Kim Holm of Toxic™, documenting his visit to this year's OFFF festival in Paris to the sound of Hecq's "Sura" (taken from the record of the same name, adn128). The video uses only the track's intro, but I guess we can all picture crumbling buildings and biblical catastrophes hitting the cities right when the beat hits.
Recorded right before the recent Niveau Zero tour in North America, this mix taps on the diversity and weight which had made "In_Sect" such a favorite (and got Niveau Zero to be commissioned for this mix in the first place). Featuring some album tracks as well as material from label mate Karsten Pflum and Loop Stepwalker or other french dubstep sensations Von D or Uzul, this Electronic Explorations mix is a heavy mastodon, rich in low frequencies but flowing elegantly.
The astute among you might have noticed some few changes on this website since yesterday (besides the fact that the whole thing was offline for a couple of hours): you can now comment on articles directly below each post. The comment system is integrated with Facebook, Twitter, OpenID and some more, meaning that you don't need to register to any new site. It doesn't get any easier to spill your guts or state your love.
Additionally, we've removed the forum section from the site. It wasn't used much, can be pretty much replaced by the comments, and this will make the navigation a bit easier. So, what do you say?
No, this blog post is not going to tell you about new releases, free excerpts, new available records or new concerts. It's about something that makes us happy and bring back some energy to work on the label and all what is mentionned above. Indie labels such as Ad Noiseam need to pay their rent and food, but also like seeing that people care about what they do. Here's a perfect example (after the fold), with a fan sending us some totally unrequested signs of love. Thank you, this made our day.
