Listen to an advance track from Gore Tech's coming album.

Friday Freebie: ten days are left before the official release date of Gore Tech's new piece of dystopian breakcore, the heavy, gritty and powerful "Futurphobia" (adn185). You have already been able to listen to excerpts from all the tracks on this release on its official page. Here comes a full-length preview of one of the most recent tracks on the album, "Optical Hybrid".

Mashing up heaving beats with post-amen breaks ragga undertones, this track showcases the strength and originality of Gore Tech's new sound. Turn up the volume, press play, enjoy, and don't forget that you can pre-order your copy of "Futurphobia" on vinyl, CD, as a poster-print with download code and as digital files.

Watch Swarm Intelligence performing at Elektroanschlag 2015
Tuesday, 31 March 2015 16:52

Another week, another Swarm Intelligence live-set. After this short excerpt from his set played for Modulate in Berlin, this musician appears in the latest video by the one-man industrial archiving machine that his Youtube's Oppatria user. The whole thing is not mastered and was both filmed and recorded from the middle of the audience, which means that the sound and image quality leave a bit to be desired but should also give an adequate impression of what it felt like to experience this show.

The live video of Swarm Intelligence's performing at the 2015 edition of the Elektroanschlag festival can be watched here or below.

Watch "Sundays", scored by Ben Lukas Boysen.
Friday, 27 March 2015 10:32

It's been a year and a half since we posted the trailer to "Sundays" (we've seen worse), a sci-fi short movie created by director Mischa Rozema and his Postpanic crew and sporting a full score by Ben Lukas Boysen (which I guess some people still know better as Hecq). This tour de force has finally been completed and can be watched online for free here or below.

There is a bit of "Inception", a bit of "The Matrix" and a bit of "District 9" in there, both in the storyline and the visuals. Make sure to turn up the volume really high, though, and let the music encompass you, as it adds a lot to the visual effects to support the script (which is apparently working quite well, according to this story about Warner Bros buying the rights to a full length version). Sit back, press play, and lift your glasses to Ben Lukas Boysen for this.

Friday Freebie: listen to Swarm Intelligence rocking Berlin.
Friday, 27 March 2015 10:05

Friday Freebie: people are screaming, raving and asking for more in the background of this live recording of Swarm Intelligence playing live in Berlin last week (remember, this was the gig which was introduced by .this other free set) Not only does it show how closer you get when recording from the room than from the mixing table, but also that this gig went down very well with Berlin's heavy techno audience.

Swarm Intelligence is playing at the Elektroanschlag festival in eastern Germany this week-end, keeping on his live showcase of his "Faction" album. Will he play the same beat-driven set? We'll report and very probably have something for everybody to listen to. In the meantime, enjoy these 10 minutes of Swarm Intelligence live at Modulate.

Semiomime starts a new podcast series with a free "Spring" mix
Tuesday, 24 March 2015 13:14

Ad Noiseam podcast #5 - Semiomime "Nocturne 1: Spring"
Ad Noiseam podcast: Semiomime, the calmer, more cinematic and electronica minded project by Noel Wessels (also known as DJ Hidden and one half of The Outside Agency) embarks today on a new series of four podcasts, each linked to a particular season, which will end in the Winter of 2015 / 2016 with a follow-up album to his "From Memory" debut (Ad Noiseam adn139, 2011).

While "From Memory" and the "Six Steps" EP were somewhat claustrophobic and highly evocative pieces of cinematic music, this "Spring" part of the "Nocturne" series is a somewhat gritty and ambient trip. Starting with Cordell Klier's sharp and very cold glitches, then featuring material from such a wide array of musicians as Oneohtrix Point Never, Wilt, Xela, Deaf Center or Sigur Ros, this "Spring" showcases an often overlooked side of Noel Wessels's tastes and talents, and might give us hints of what to expect with Semiomime's sophomore album.

You can listen to Semiomime's "Nocturne 1 - Spring" podcast on Ad Noiseam's Soundcloud page (and the Mixcloud one) or below. The tracklisting is after the break.

Friday Freebie: listen to Swarm Intelligence's Modulate set.
Friday Freebie: Swarm Intelligence doesn't spend much time away from his computer, distortion pedals or mixer. We've already featured two sets from this Berlin-based, Irish-born artist in our Friday Freebies series recently, and here comes a third. The DJ set which you can listen to here or below was commissioned by Berlin's Modulate crew, who invited him to play at their latest party on March 21st (this is tomorrow at the time of writing).

Noisy as ever, heavier on the techno side than usual, this DJ set contains material by Swarm Intelligence (some of which from his "Faction" album) as well as from like-minded artists. Click play to listen to this perfect way to kick-start your week-end.

Listen to Broken Note remixing I Am Legion.
Thursday, 19 March 2015 16:41

Notorious perfectionist Broken Note just remixed I Am Legion, the superband formed by Noisia and Foreign Beggars, giving his treatment to "Powerplay", off their so far only album.

The result is short, heavy and very powerful, in a typical Broken Note way. Enjoy (and note that yes, you can download this track for free):
