Yes, it all full of love but don't worry, we're not going to go all p.l.u.r. on anybody here.
After Tympanika couple of weeks ago (and N5md and Spectraliquid before that), two new labels are now distributed digitally in the Ad Noiseam mailorder store: UK's Sustained Records (with records by such people as I:Gor or Ad Noiseam regulars The Teknoist and DJ Hidden) and Holland's Mindtrick (home of Atiq, The Eerier Child or Charlie Lynch).
Ad Noiseam now carries now only the records and CD by these labels, but also their digital versions. So in case your turntable is broken (which it shouldn't be) or you just need some fodder for your mp3 player, head over to the Ad Noiseam online store. Here's Sustained's catalog, and here's Mindtrick's.
The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble are now on the road for a few weeks, touring Europe to support their new album, "Here Be Dragons" (adn120). The live dates are all here, and we strongly recommend everybody to attend these shows (most of all, of course, the one in the Ad Noiseam home town of Berlin).
As an appetizer to those of you who will see TKDE live, or as a consolation for those of you who won't, here comes a second "extra" to "Here Be Dragons" (the first is still here): a simply entitled "Two Live Tracks", showcasing how rich, deep and somewhat "different" The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble are on stage. These two tracks, as well as a handful of live pictures, can be downloaded for free here. Enjoy, spread the word, and don't miss the shows.
Update Oct 30th: we're back, now on with the processing of every email and order received last week. Now that all the new releases have been born and are out in the open, we need to breathe out a bit. 6 CD and 3 records, that was quite some work.
Better said: we're taking a week off starting Thursday (Oct 22nd) till the 29th. And since we won't have an internet connection, there will be absolute silence on our end in the meantime. But we'll come back in full force, with new t-shirts and other goodies. All emails and orders will be answered, processed and shipped again starting on October 30th. Note that, if you purchase digital releases, you'll be able to download them automatically, without any waiting, though.
Sorry for the inconvenience, and see you in a week.
Following two video trailers (one, two), here comes a video taken from Raoul Sinier's new "Tremeny Industry" luxury CD + DVD pack. The following video, done for the title track of the album, sees Raoul Sinier gets acquainted with another of the weird but cute critters that enables his fantasy world. This video is only one of the several featured on the 2 hours + DVD of "Tremens Industry", and also appears on the CD.
"Tremens Industry" is out now and available from Ad Noiseam.
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.
