Update August 16th: we're back to Berlin. All orders have been processed and answered (if you purchased something while we were away, your order will be shipped on Monday 17th). All other emails will be answered as soon as possible.
The time has come to breathe some fresh air: the Ad Noiseam office will be closed between right now and Saturday, August 15th.
All orders and emails received in the meantime will be processed and answered on the 15th (off means "no internet", really) The items purchased through the online store will be reserved, but can be shipped only on the 15th (provided that your payment has been received).
However, note that you can still use the store to purchase digital releases if you pay with Paypal (the whole thing is automated).
Sorry for this little inconvenience, and see you all next week.
The Solipistic Nation website features this week a new podcast about Exillon, which features an interview with Jay Fields as well as live recording of his set played in early 2008 at the well known London Bangface club. You can get this all directly here and are of course advised to check out the whole Solipsistic Nation site.
And as usual, note that pre-orders are getting rebate, meaning that whatever format you choose, you'll pay less if you get these items this week rather than wait till next Monday, when they will be officially released.
Seductive but perilous, he Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble's new session under the Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation name is a new combination of drones and jazz. Creating sensual, murky and dark atmospheres, “Succubus” the evolution of this band, with stronger horns and a focus on hypnotic, soundtrack-like material. A deep, dark and yet seductive trip again for the corporation. (Get this on CD / as mp3)
Mothboy is back and brought his friends Starkey and Lapsed & Nonnon with him for this return to heavy bass lines and club-filling beats. With a clean but massive A side and a grime-oriented flip, Ad Noiseam's favouritee London heavyweight wrecks subwoofers once again and shows that he's at the top of his games and ready to fill dancefloors. (get this on 12" / as mp3)
Now don't say that it's too hard to get their releases. N5md and Spectraliquid have joined hands with Ad Noiseam and, starting today, you can not only buy these labels' CD in our mailorder catalog, but their digital downloads version as well. We still carry (and still will) these labels's physical releases (as this is where our love and preferrence goes), but for all of you who'd rather have the "immaterial" versions, all of Spectraliquid releases (including all of their "Mutant Dubstep" series and Detritus 's A Wake A Week side-project) and 32 full lengths album from N5md (almost everything they have released in the recent years, including three albums by Gridlock's Mike Cadoo's Bitcrush project) can now be purchased immediately in digital version from Ad Noiseam. That's easy and remember, your money is then directly used to support these labels and their artists. So show your love for indie platforms and structures, there's definitely an alternative to pirated mp3s.
Since the beginning of Ad Noiseam in 2001, every Ad Noiseam online store customer has received a CDR for free with her or his order, on which is burned a selection of tracks from current Ad Noiseam releases. Tons of these CDRs have been burned and sent out over the year, and have, hopefully, helped to spread the word about what Ad Noiseam is about.
We hope that this compilation will help everybody to discover some new artists and tracks, or present a broader image of Ad Noiseam to people who are familiar with only part of the roster. Again, all these tracks are taken from currently available releases. The full tracklisting is below.
Somatic Responses have decided to rethink their music: if their early productions were of the hardcore and techno kind, and while they later moved on to breakcore territories, Somatic Responses have now embraced more up-to-date and modern sounds, and tackled the current dubstep sound that has taken their native UK by storm. Massive, human, driven, fresh, and now released.
