The Connexion Bizarre webzine has updated their podcast sections with a one-hour long free set prepared by yours truely. Gathering 16 tracks, this show focuses on past and current releases, and aim at being something to pop in your mp3 player or at home, rather than to be played at the club. Few big breaks, and no fast rhythms here: it's OK to Dance, but it's also ok to chill out at one point. The whole info about this podcast is here (this show contains two separate files, the Ad Noiseam set is the first one), or you can listen to it directly here.
The playlist for this podcast is:
Now that Wilt had turned 10 years old, and that the anniversary double pack "Cemetary Road / Dead Electroniks" (adn116) has been released, people can dwelve deeper into the past and present of this act thanks to a new blog created by Wilt and providing more information about this release. Each track is presented individually, with texts and images, and background information is being given about the release.
You can read this blog over here, or check the main one for Wilt. Or, of course, check out "Cemetary Road / Dead Electroniks" on this very site.
As part of their Muuma campaign / website (nothing to do with what is, according to Wikipedia, a Pokemon), Seinheiser has shot a video interview with AZ-Rotator, asking him about his first step as a producer, the tools of its trade and its most recent productions. The whole thing is in Spanish with English subtitles and can be watched right here:
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.
