And as usual, note that pre-orders are getting rebate, meaning that whatever format you choose, you'll pay less if you get these items this week rather than wait till next Monday, when they will be officially released.
Seductive but perilous, he Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble's new session under the Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation name is a new combination of drones and jazz. Creating sensual, murky and dark atmospheres, “Succubus” the evolution of this band, with stronger horns and a focus on hypnotic, soundtrack-like material. A deep, dark and yet seductive trip again for the corporation. (Get this on CD / as mp3)
Mothboy is back and brought his friends Starkey and Lapsed & Nonnon with him for this return to heavy bass lines and club-filling beats. With a clean but massive A side and a grime-oriented flip, Ad Noiseam's favouritee London heavyweight wrecks subwoofers once again and shows that he's at the top of his games and ready to fill dancefloors. (get this on 12" / as mp3)
Now don't say that it's too hard to get their releases. N5md and Spectraliquid have joined hands with Ad Noiseam and, starting today, you can not only buy these labels' CD in our mailorder catalog, but their digital downloads version as well. We still carry (and still will) these labels's physical releases (as this is where our love and preferrence goes), but for all of you who'd rather have the "immaterial" versions, all of Spectraliquid releases (including all of their "Mutant Dubstep" series and Detritus 's A Wake A Week side-project) and 32 full lengths album from N5md (almost everything they have released in the recent years, including three albums by Gridlock's Mike Cadoo's Bitcrush project) can now be purchased immediately in digital version from Ad Noiseam. That's easy and remember, your money is then directly used to support these labels and their artists. So show your love for indie platforms and structures, there's definitely an alternative to pirated mp3s.
Since the beginning of Ad Noiseam in 2001, every Ad Noiseam online store customer has received a CDR for free with her or his order, on which is burned a selection of tracks from current Ad Noiseam releases. Tons of these CDRs have been burned and sent out over the year, and have, hopefully, helped to spread the word about what Ad Noiseam is about.
We hope that this compilation will help everybody to discover some new artists and tracks, or present a broader image of Ad Noiseam to people who are familiar with only part of the roster. Again, all these tracks are taken from currently available releases. The full tracklisting is below.
Somatic Responses have decided to rethink their music: if their early productions were of the hardcore and techno kind, and while they later moved on to breakcore territories, Somatic Responses have now embraced more up-to-date and modern sounds, and tackled the current dubstep sound that has taken their native UK by storm. Massive, human, driven, fresh, and now released.
Almost two weeks have passed, but some of us are still recovering. The Ad Noiseam festival which took place on May 1st at Maria in Berlin came and went. It was a huge preparation and even more fun to everybody.
Ad Noiseam would like to thank everybody who came to play, to attend, to help, and just about everybody involved in this event. We might will do it again, even though neither a date nor a line-up have been decided yet.
If you have taken any pictures or shot any video at this event, please point us to them, it would be nice to see everything from different perspectives. And remember, we have a forum if you want to post your impressions of the night.
Some videos and links to pictures are already here after the break.
Thank you to everybody who made the Ad Noiseam festival on the 1st of May such a success: the audience for partying so hard, much and long; the artists, for rocking the house from start to finish andall being great guys, and the Maria crew, for making it all possible.
We're recovering right now, but pictures, videos and whatever will be posted in the near future.
