Friday Freebie / Ad Noiseam Podcast: we keep on with our series of free podcasts which started early this year with 2methyl, followed in the Spring by Detritus, with a new, hour-long mix by Tapage. The third episode of Ad Noiseam's new podcast series celebrates his latest album, "Eight" (adn180, released on Ad Noiseam in June 2014). As usual with this series, Tapage goes beyond his own tracks in this mix and pays homage to other musicians who have had an influence on his art.
Though we have always tried to make every Ad Noiseam releases as easily available as possible, embracing many formats, re-pressing albums and distributing music all over the world, some (a major part, actually) of the music we have released is not available anymore, or at least not on all formats. Not being able (financially and logistically) to constantly re-press every album and have it on stock, we find ourselves forced to disappoint some of you who ask for the availability of some of our oldest or most successful releases.
Today brings good news to a happy few, then. We've been returned unsold stock from one of our distributors, and have a handful of copies of some till-now out of print releases available again in the online store. Quantities are very limited (ranging from one till five copies), we stronglly recommend that you act fast to secure your copies of these CD. No re-press is planned of any of these items, and we have no idea whether we will be returned any copies again. What we got today is:
Friday Freebie: Ad Noiseam's Monolog took part in Berlin's yearly industrial Schlagstrom fest last week, keeping on with a festival tour which has lead him to play on such prestigious stages as Maschinenfest's and Fusion's. The room might have been heavily filled with smoke, as pictured above, but the sound was clear and powerful for this first gig by Monolog since he put the finishing touches to his next album, "Merge" (adn178), which will be released soon on Ad Noiseam (more about this in the coming days).
It had been a while since our favorite subwoofer-shaking dubstepper Niveau Zero had last provided us with a mix of the kind we're posting here quite often. This is being corrected today, as the Paris-based clothing brand Wrung has published a 48 minutes podcast by the man. Bass-heavy, very energetic and perfectly fitting the current Summer period, this untitled mix guarantees heavy thrashing, head banging and general booty shaking. And mind you, it closes with two Ad Noiseam bangers taken from the latest releases by Mobthrow and Broken Note.
You can listen to this new mix by Niveau Zero here or below. Enjoy.
Update July 31st: we're back, all orders have been shipped, and business can return to normal. Public Service Announcement: the Ad Noiseam international intergalactic corporate headquarters will be closed between July 17th and July 30th, as we take a short pause to recharge our batteries and potentially show a shocking absence of care to our records and turntables, as pictured above. We do need to breathe some fresh air after seven releases this year already (by Hecq, Tapage, Underhill, Detritus, Broken Note, Mobthrow and 2methyl).
All orders placed through the Ad Noiseam online store between now and July 30th will be reserved but shipped on July 31st only. Obviously, orders for digital releases are unaffected.
See you soon, and enjoy some good music with your summer.
The fruit of a very long writing process and a project which Hecq had been wanting to bring for completion for years, "Conversions" is this artist's homage to his peers, influences and friends. From Bersarin Quartet to Lusine ICL, from Svarte Greiner to The Outside Agency, Ben Lukas Boysen chose for this album eleven tracks which mean a lot to him, and delivers here his own versions and remixes. A highly personal and uncommonly varied album which Hecq has been creating with care and carrying close to his heart.
Monolog rocked the (very) big and (very) prestigious Fusion Festival in Northern Germany last week-end, unleashing his complex and sharp broken drum'n'bass to a crowd of partly prepared, partly surprised festival goers.
Those of you who were there probably still grin at the memory of this show. The others should dry their tears, as Monolog recorded his live set and has uploaded its first 20 minutes for you all to enjoy.
Click here or below to listen to part of Monolog's live set played at Fusion Festival on June 26th. And don't forget: Monolog's new album and follow-up to "2 Dots Left" (adn172) is coming out this summer. More information about this soon.
