2010 is living its last hours, and Noel Wessels (aka DJ Hidden or one half of The Outside Agency) and Ad Noiseam have a parting gift for this year.
"In Passing" is a first give-away sample introducing "From Memory", the début album by Noel Wessels's new Semiomime project. This long-awaited, carefully crafted and "quite different" project will finally get its first album on 11-II-11. After many delays, reworks and announcement, the album is finished, will be available for pre-order very soon. But here comes already something to listen to.
You can listen to "In Passing" below, stream it here or download it there. Enjoy, and best wishes for 2011
In our series of short interviews with Ad Noiseam artists, we sit down today with Raoul Sinier. With four releases so far on Ad Noiseam, including the "Brain Kitchen" and "Tremens Industry" full length album, more artwork and videos that you can shake a stick at, this Paris-based musician, painter and graphic artist has been at the center of the life of Ad Noiseam in the recent years. He has now started to write a new album to come out in 2011, following another forthcoming EP for the young british label Oeuvre, expected in January. Let's see what he has to say about the past, present and future of his multidimensional creations:
You remember that Niveau Zero rocks harder than you, right? Or that he put the Maschinenfest crowd to its knees a couple of months ago? Here we are at it again, with three new videos showing more than half an hour of the man wrecking havoc in Rennes, France last month. Mind you, this town is also the cradle of the famous Peace Off / Ruff labels, so Niveau Zero couldn't afford to under-deliver. But I'd definitely call this "over-deliver" this time around.
Here's the first part of these three videos. The other two are after the cut.
Click below for five videos shot on November 24th at Berlin's Mikz during the Hecq live show and DJ set by your truely at the Impulse / In Beat We Trust party. They were all shot in night vision, which gives quite a military look to everything, but rest assured that all we were assaulting the audience with were heavy beats and deep basses, except for the occasional cigarette smoke.
Anyway, read below for Black Lung's statement about this, and note that a brave Australian fan confirmed that he actually received his ordered copy of "The Soul Consumer". So some parcel are actually let through down under.
While some early birds had been able to snatch them at the Maschinenfest last month, here they are, officially out and available for everybody, the new Ad Noiseam t-shirts. This time around, you'll be able to wear proudly your support of Niveau Zero and Subheim. Heavy basses and metal, or orchestral atmospheres and jazz tones? Maybe both.
