Even more, the CD coming with this magazine features tracks by both Detritus and Wilt, taken from their respective recent albums. And finally, since Ad Noiseam and D-Side are of the generous kind, new subscribers to D-Side can choose to receive a copy of Detritus's "Things Gone Wrong" for free with their new issue. Now, what's your excuse again for not learning French and reading this magazine?
At the same time, Cardopusher also dug through his record collection for a mix for the Electronic Explorations website, in which he plays a lot of his new material as well as a salvo of dubplates from like minded artists and friends. The download is here and, again the playlist is below.
Two different artists, two very different mixes and genres, but two quality recordings to make your mp3 player boom and twitch. Enjoy.
This 12" record is the third volume of the vinyl pendants to "The Words Below", DJ Hidden's second full length album, released last October on Ad Noiseam. While the first two volumes (adn114 and adn119) featured re-worked, DJ-friendly versions of tracks from the CD, the material on this third one is exclusive to the record. On the A side, Eye-D (a.k.a. DJ Hidden's partner in crime in The Outside Agency) offers a crazy, rich and intense remix of "The Narrators" and, on the B side, DJ Hidden's re-wrote his own "Devil's Instant", turning it into an even more percussive, drier monster of a track.
The french publisher Editions Fée will release next week Raoul Sinier's first graphic novel, a full length book he co-authored and illustrated together with Sylvie Frétet. The story of two friens hired to test a new video game system which slowly reveals itself as an unsettling and bizarre psychiatric tool, "Les Aveugles" will be officially released on January 14th. You will be able to order it directly through Editions Fée starting Jan 14th, and later on through the Ad Noiseam online store.
To celebrate the publication of this book, Raoul Sinier and Sylvie Frétet are also inviting everybody to a dedicated evening in Paris on Thursday (Jan 14th) at Café de Paris (158 rue Oberkampf) on 8PM, during which both authors will sign the book, several short films and animations by Raoul Sinier will be shown (hint: you might also want to check Raoul Sinier's "Tremens Industry" CD and DVD to be able to see these films in the comfort of your home), and DJ dDash will take cake of feeding your curious and open ears.
Check the evening's trailer and some pages from "Les Aveugles" below. If you're in Paris, make sure not to miss this party and, if you're not, don't forget to get your copies of this graphic novel, as Raoul Sinier's long-awaited jump into the world of cartoons is something which should definitely be taken seriously.
Following their very positive review of his latest album "Tremens Industry", the french webzine Goûte Mes 'Disques have invited this musician to get behind the mixing deck and present the sound and artist he currently listens to. From the breaks of Igorrr and Tim Exile to the raps of Bluebird or Mobb Deep, the result is a spicy dish that you can listen and download for free here. Note that it also contains some new material from Raoul Sinier himself, so make sure to listen carefully, and enjoy this mix's eclectism.
