Friday Freebie: Roel Funcken's debut solo album, "Vade" was released a month ago (and is available on CD or as mp3), and we thought that it would be a good timing to present the fourth medley he prepared out of tracks from this CD.
You can listen to this track here (or below), and check out the first three that Roel Funcken had prepared to give a taste of what "Vade" is about. Asking for more? There are several full length previews to be heard on the "Vade" info page, or you could always check this recent live set by Funckarma.
And finally, don't forget the special interactive site dedicated to this album, over at www.roelfuncken.com.
This contest enables anybody to download the soundfiles for this tune, remix it, and submit their own remix, all for free. In two months, Enduser, Ad Noiseam and the Fixt community will vote for the best remixes, the best three receiving prizes from Korg, Fab Filter and Prime Loops.
So get behind your samplers, synths and work machines and enroll in this remix. It's not every day that you get to show what you are made of by remixing Enduser. Here's the official remix contest page, and there are more details about Enduser's "1/3".
On the trail of the recent Enduser, Roel Funcken and Mothboy releases, Ad Noiseam is keeping busy and getting ready to present two very hot and bassy releases in the coming weeks. Both are now in the queue, and pre-orders are now taken for both releases. Remember, as usual, customers who buy their records, CD or mp3 in advance get a rebate, meaning that they not only get their music earlier, but also cheaper.
The first of these two releases is Niveau Zero's full-length album, "In_Sect", in which this frontrunner of the french dubstep scene demonstrates how you can conjugate this genre differently, outside of the regular paths. Mixing his massive basses with breaks, metal and hip-hop, Niveau Zero comes up with an energetic and relentless fusion of genres, assisted in the process by such people as Ben Sharpa, Broken Note and Hecq. More information and audio here. Pre-orders are now taken for the CD and the digital version of this album.
Speaking of Hecq, the second release available for pre-order is the long-awaited return to vinyl by Berlin-based wizkid, who finally present with "Sura" the infectious and huge tracks he's been showcasing live in the recent years. Sharp, masterfully produced and deadly efficient, "Sura" also features a remix by Ad Noiseam's young talent Matta. More information and audio here. Pre-orders are for the record here, for the mp3 there.
With his third full length album ("Bunny", pictured above) just out in the open, Mothboy is spending some time digging tracks from his archives. May it be old unreleased tracks or new edits such as this one, there are quite a few things that Mothboy wrote in the past years and that never saw the light of the day.
Here's a new one of these hidden pearls: the music written to accompany the credits of the short-movie "Help Wanted" (about which we do not have more information that what's written here). We haven't seen this movie, but this sountrack of sort sounds quite sinister, laid back and slightly jazzy, in the vein of Mothboy's calmest moments on "The Fears" and "Deviance".
It's not the first time that Mothboy's music is used in the movie, as mentionned here (this film has been yanked off Youtube, though), but it's the first time that this "Theme to Help Wanted" is available. Here's the track. Click "play", sit back and enjoy:
The bunny is out of his hole: Ad Noiseam is proud to announce the release of Mothboy's third (and sadly final) full-length album, "Bunny". This album is now available straight from the label, here on CD, and there as mp3.
Following 20045's "The Fears" and 2006's "Deviance" as well as the "Exonian" and "Beg / Movement" 12", "Bunny" is Mothboy's at its warmest, most varied and most accomplished. Ranging from bouncy electro to hip-hop, and featuring several high-profile guests again (from Akira The Don, a regular Mothboy collaborator, to Ted Parsons of the Swans / Godflesh or Martin Carr of The Boo Radleys), here's an album that condensates everything Mothboy has been known for.
With the first full length album by Roel Funcken ("Vade") just released, Funckarma have been playing a few live gigs recently, and have just uploaded a full recording of their set at the FAQ Festival in s-Hertogenbosch on April 9th, 2010.
This live set, which contains new and old material from Funckarma as well as Roel Funcken, can be listened to here (or below). And you can find here more information and audio taken from the "Vade" album.
There's still a long time to go before we can put your hands on this new material by AZ-Rotator, but here's a free track already, "Redycom Flow", which should show you where the new recordings are headed. It seems like Uge Ortiz has the dancefloor clearly in mind with this insanely catchy, melodic and booty-shaking track.
Here's the track, which you can also download here. Listen to it loud, and dance the day (or night) away.
First comes the long-awaited new EP by Enduser, "1/3". Enduser is back after a long year of silence, and presents us an extremely solid four tracker (counting a remix by Cardopusher). Sharp, melodic and beautiful, "1/3" is Enduser at the top of his form. This release is available as a (splendid looking) 12" record, CD ep, or mp3 files.
Also out now is the deep and lush first full length album by Roel Funcken, one of the two Funckarma brother. "Vade" is a long trip through plenty of current-days genres, from lush electronica to heavy dubstep, but always seen in the particularely dense and detailed Funcken sound. We've posted a few medleys from this album already, but you can now get the whole thing on CD or as mp3.
Ad Noiseam is proud to present these two new releases. Check them out, enjoy them, and prepare as well for the new Mothboy album, or the forthcoming releases by Niveau Zero, Hecq, Karsten Pflum, Igorrr & co: we've got a lot of good things coming.
