Another week has passed, bringing us that much closer to the release date of Roel Funcken's "Vade" album (adn122). This also means more extras enabling a better and deeper look at this rich album by one of the two Funckarma brothers.
First, Roel Funcken has prepared a new medley made of various tracks from this CD, which you can listen to here or below these lines. And in case you were wondering, the first one is still there.
The news of the day is that you can now pre-order both of these releases, in all their formats. Staying true to the tradition, all the pre-orders are getting a rebate, meaning that, if you buy your record, CD or mp3 from Ad Noiseam before March 29th, you'll get them not only early, but cheaper.
The first record by this promising british duo, "The Lost" packs three varied but equally intense and heavy dubstep tunes, which are receiving a lot of praise and airplay at the moment. Ad Noiseam is happy to welcome Matta to the fold and to be able to present this young project to its audience. We're convinced that these two producers (with whom you can read an interview here) are here to make a lasting impression, and are already looking forward their next productions.
While the release of his first album gets closer, Roel Funcken (who is, we'll repeat it a few times again, one half of Funckarma) has prepared quite a few things to help everybody dive deeper into this dense, complex and lush debut full length.
Besides the four tracks which you can listen to on the "Vade" page on this very site, a brand new site has been sent up over at roelfuncken.com, entirely dedicated to this album. Be sure to play with it and have a good look (and listen), as it contains many layers and additional information and sounds for those who are ready to hunt them.
Finally, Roel Funcken has prepared four medleys of tracks taken from the album, which we will be presenting on a weekly basis till the release of the album, and made of short mixes of tracks from the CD. The first one can be heard over here (or below).
We had already mentionned it a few weeks ago, but it is now in our hands, and we felt that Raoul Sinier and Sylvie Frétet's "Les Aveugles" graphic novel deserved some additional love. This large format, heavy comic book illustrated by Ad Noiseam's favorite multimedia stakhanovist tells the story of a new virtual-reality video game (or something which is more than just this), the motivations of its creators and the adventures of its testers. Dark, disturbing and mesmerizing, it's something which will hopefully be met with all the praises and success it deserves.
You can read more about it and see some pages and trailers over here, and order your copy in the Ad Noiseam online storeover there.
