Roel Funcken's "Vade" has been out for a few weeks now, and we thought that it might be a good idea to sit down with this musician and asks a few questions about his solo work, his production techniques and the future of Funckarma. Read his answers below, intertwined with excerpts from this album.
Today is Hecq day over in the Ad Noiseam online store. With the release of this musician's new record ("Sura", adn128) coming up next month, and pre-orders already taken for this record (or its mp3), we've now added two very rare pieces of this rising and excellent producer in the online store.
First comes the "Sura" t-shirt which, as its name implies, allows you to show your love for the new record and its doom damnation-ridden artwork. We have only very shirts in stock, so act fast.
Second is Hecq's "Zetha" record, which was released in 2007 but ever since extremely hard to get. We have it here now, enabling you to finally bring this tasty piece of electronica to your turntable.
"they draw from the Sino-Rastafarian sound and heavy bass, combined with more of the kind of dark and aggressive beats": that's a direct quote from Amon Tobin's plug for Broken Note. Tobin's website is hosting an exclusive mix by these Ad Noiseam favorites. That's quite the nod from this very well known producer, and another excellent set by Broken Note. Head over to Amon Tobin's site to read what he thinks of Broken Note and listen to this set.
Just because we can: we've succombed to the sleeveface trend with the particularely fitting cover for Enduser's new "1/3" EP. And look below: there's more. For all of you who want Enduser to tell you about attack ships on fire, check out his ongoing tour dates.
Enduser's "1/3" is out now and available on vinyl, CD and mp3.
As part of the promotion for his latest album, Mothboy has recorded a set for Diversity's Musicbox show. Featuring tracks from "Bunny" as well as from the rest of his discography and a new unreleased tracks, mixed together with material from the likes of Flying Lotus, Kontext or Autechre, this mix was recently aired and can now be streamed here (or below)
Mothboy's third album, "Bunny", is out now on Ad Noiseam and available on CD or digital download.
Friday Freebie: Roel Funcken's debut solo album, "Vade" was released a month ago (and is available on CD or as mp3), and we thought that it would be a good timing to present the fourth medley he prepared out of tracks from this CD.
You can listen to this track here (or below), and check out the first three that Roel Funcken had prepared to give a taste of what "Vade" is about. Asking for more? There are several full length previews to be heard on the "Vade" info page, or you could always check this recent live set by Funckarma.
