T-shirts are great (and Ad Noiseam shirts are better, of course), but their production process is something that most people prefer to forget about. Not anymore for Ad Noiseam, though: we've jumped the gun, broke the piggy bank, and decided that we didn't want to produce shirts we could not support.
Starting with the new shirts that will be on sale this week-end at the Maschinenfest festival, all Ad Noiseam t-shirts and hoodies will be produced on sweat-shop free, fair trade, organic fabric
. This means no child labor anymore, no dirty chemicals poisoning the workers and their fields, and shirts that don't insult your conscience. It also means that these shirts will be a bit more expensive, but we're still trying to keep things affordable for everybody.
These shirts (including new ones for Broken Note and The Teknoist) will be available in the Ad Noiseam mailorder catalog right after the Maschinenfest (in a week time). For the moment, we'll try and sell all of the past t-shirts. All reprints will be done on the new sweat-shop free / organic shirts, but we need to sell out of the old stock first.
Ad Noiseam is really happy to finally be able to produce t-shirts we can live with. See you at the Maschinfest this week-end with them, or online in a week.
Unless you've been living in outer space recently, you've heard that Warp just turned 20, and released a limited edition luxirious boxset to commemorate the occasion.
And by luxurious, we mean an oversized box with a book, two CDs and five 10". Très awesome.
Ad Noiseam has managed to secure a couple of copies, which are new, unopened, shrinkwrapped, and extra packagded in an additional cardboard box (so one more box than on the images below).
Since this item is expensive and heavy to ship, we are reserving this for people who either
pick it up from the Ad Noiseam office in Berlin or at the Ad Noiseam table at the Maschinenfest n
Therefore, if you want to get a copy, email us as soon as possible with your name and tell me whether you will pick up this box in Berlin or at the Maschinenfest. And if you really, really want to mailorder it, let me know as well. But note that shipping will be expensive.
The boxes are, again, totally new, cost 200 Euro a piece, and will go on the first come, first served basis. Act fast.
Ad Noiseam is hitting very hard in October, with nothing less than six full lengths album coming out at the same time. And mind you, there are all coming from well known pillars of the label: from the long awaited new albums by The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble and the luxury CD and DVD by Raoul Sinier to the exciting full ones by DJ Hidden and Broken Note, through strong new albums by Ad Noiseam veterans Detritus and Wilt.
Pre-orders are now taken for all of these albums, in their CD, vinyl and digital versions. And as usual, all pre-orders are getting a rebate, meaning that people seizing their chances now will not only get their fresh music delivery before everybody else, but alos a bit cheaper.

More TKDE news for today: the Russian director Andrey Stvolinsky has posted a beautiful video showing Moscow in crisp slow-motion, the whole thing enriched with a track from The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble's first album. The whole thing fits very well together, shows this city under a very uncommon light and, mind you, is here below for everybody to see:
