New items in the store:In stock today in the Ad Noiseam online store are:
| ||PORT-ROYAL - 2000-2010: The Golden Age Of Consumerism - 2xCD (n5md)|
Pretty nice ten years anniversary double pack from Italy's Port-Royal. The first CD compiles rares or so-far-unreleased tracks, and showcases well the progress of this act over the years. The second gathers 18 remixes they have done for a surprisingly varied array of people, from Akira Kiteshi's awesome AK Kids project to Felix Da Housecat and Ladytron (less my thing). All in all we're clearly still listening to calm, semi ambient, semi post-rock material here, but it's all well done and the variety of this release helps a lot to get a grip on Port-Royal's sometimes long and dreamy atmospheres.
| ||SUBTRACTIVELAD - Kindred - CD (n5md)|
Very surprising, the new (and seventh) yearly delivery from Subtractivelad. While we had left this Canadian musician with a relatively ambient "Life At The End Of The World", here he comes with a considerably more electronic and heavy handed affair. While there are still quite a lot of calm passages and the occasional nod to shoe-gaze here and there across "Kindred", it's the semi-retro, thick pads and arpeggiated melodies that dominate this album. Reminding a bit of the sort of trance revival currently carried on by Border Community, this new album is a new and, as far as I am concerned, unexpected change for this act. It might not be for everybody, but hats off to Subtractivelad for reinventing himself here.
| ||NEAR THE PARENTHESIS - Japanese For Beginners - CD (n5md)|
New album by Near The Parenthesis, one of the new pillars of the N5md roster, and still something which I find deeply rooted in the early 2000's City Centre / Morr Music sound of delicate poppy electronica and childish melodies. Things are resolutely electronic on this new CD, with little if any room left to the shoe-gaze or post-rock guitars, though. It's a bit too sweet for me (I guess I am not romantic enough), but it's all well executed, and might work on you for some pretty home-listening sessions.
| ||KRUMBLE - Autobahn / Bass Line Vision - 12" (Death$ucker)|
Very nice (and highly anticipated) come back of Death$ucker with this dynamic and strangely addictive new 12" by the great Krumble. Combining a clear and playful IDM / Warp-ish array of pads and melodies with both breakcore and 8-bit rhythms, this French artist comes up here with tracks which are on the one hand quite fast and ADHD infused, but still quite accessible and not overly aggressive. Probably closer to what such a label as In Vitro has been doing than to Krumble's early Peace Off efforts, but also a record that fits well on Death$ucker and which I would strongly recommend.
| ||JUNGLEFEVER & STIVS - Money Money/ Fat Ting - 7" (Death$ucker / Bomba Cut Recordings)|
Remember raggacore, a genre that had its climax in the middle of the 2000's, when dubstep wasn't yet a buzzwords and ragga vocals were best served mashed-up with amens and fast breaks? That's exactly what's on the menu tonight with this nicely infectious collaborative 7" between UK's mad Stivs, a Death$ucker regular, and the Dutch Junglefever. Junglish it definitely is, as well as tapping from start to finish in every possible ragga anthem and catchphrase. Old school, but also very welcome in a time when this kind of stuff seldom graces our turntables.
| ||PALE SKETCHER - Seventh Heaven - 12" (Ghostly)|
Already a follow-up to Pale Sketcher (a.k.a. Justin Broadrick's Jesu gone all electronic), in the form of a heavy picture disc featuring four new tracks and a remix by Kevin Midas Sound (Kevin Martins, Broadrick's former partner in crime in Techno Animal). The new tracks are quite a notch more rhythmic than the material on the full length album, with almost a nod to Tech Level 2's drum'n'bass on one title. All in all a more compact, less dreamy but at that more stand-out EP from a project which might slowly become one of Broadrick's main one in a near future.
| ||CLOAKS - Hi Tek - 12" (Werk Discs)|
Back in stock, Cloaks's 2007 debut, back them released on the constantly underrated Werk Discs. "Hi Tek" was the first four track salvo of particularly gritty, analog-sounding mixture of industrial beats and slow dubstep basses. Heavy, dark, dirty, and very much unlike anything else (maybe expect for their 3by3 colleagues of Dead Fader), this is quite an important record for everybody who has the good taste of admitting how original and talented Cloaks are. Strongly recommended.
| ||ZERO G - Bring It - 12" (Dub Police)|
While the A side of this new 12" by the prolific Zero G is a perfect example of what Dub Police seem to be aiming at at the moment, combining heavy dubstep with much poppier melodies and samples, its the B side remix by Sub Scape which works the best for me. It's filthy, dirty and not quote the most original thing in the world, but it's also efficient and providing all the dancefloor appeal that one could expect.
| ||SP:MC & LX ONE - Down / Judgement - 12" (Tempa)|
Coming right after their collaboration on Osiris Musik, SP:MC and LX One pair up again, this time for two new track on Tempa. Slow and massive dubstep is what we both expect and get, of course, but it's interesting to see how these two chose to go with a warmer, dubbier sound here compared with the other aforementioned record. A bit more classic than what we have learned to expect from Tempa, but at that less ambitious and hitting its target with more accuracy.
| ||LATE - Phantom Papers - 2x12" (Immerse)|
Very nice double (value) pack from Late, a re-release of sort of two early 12", also on Immerse but now sold out. The four tracks on this double 12" feature the kind of deep, almost Shackleton-esque glitchy dubstep that we have come to expect from Immerse, but served in a very friendly and human way, with long melancholic pads and gentle samples. This is definitely not something people are going to rave to, but flows very well and has the good idea of not being overly abstract or show offy. An EP with a long staying power, in my opinion
| ||HELIXIR - Undivided - CD (7even)|
Announced a few months ago with the "Undivided LP sampler" 12", here comes another full length album by one of the main acts on the elusive French label 7even. Faithful to this imprint's trademark sound, "Undivided" is a fine and driven piece of post dubstep-meet-techno, this time around with relatively few dub elements, and a remarked focus on house beats. While some tracks stand out with their downtempo. emotional moments, the whole thing is clearly a club oriented album and should work very well with club goers with a fine finger on the pulse and zeitgeist of this sound. Well done.
| ||ENA - Sign / Instinctive - 12" (7even)|
Interesting release that this first two tracker by Ena for 7even: while the A side is a slow-moving, pitched-down vocal based calm and pretty track which might remind of late-night Von D material, the B side is an uncommon combination of twisted dubstep and accoustic-sounding drums. The result is quite dynamic and efficient, while threading a path which hasn't really been explored so far. All in all, it's really this flip side that got me on this 12", and I'd be interested in listening to more of this kind of material from Ena.
| ||LHF - EP2: The Line Path - 12" (Keysound Recordings)|
Second EP for LHF, once again for Keysound Recordings, and a confirmation that this act's music fits very well alongside Duck & Blackdown "ethnic" and hip hop influenced dubstep. The sound is still very lush and clear, and though the use of samples might remind a bit of what Gold Panda is doing, this second 12" goes a bit less towards techno, compared to its predecessor, but uses some well found downtempo hip-hopish beats. Quite relaxed but both pretty and interesting. And therefore recommended.
| ||COOH / CURRENT VALUE / DEAN RODELL - Naglfar / Medicine - 12" (Position Chrome)|
It's almost a family reunion that we listen to on this new Position Chrome two-tracker. The currently ?-prolific Cooh is on both side, collaborating on one with Current Value, and on the other with Subdivision's labelhead Dean Rodell (who works on Machine Code with Current Value and on Underhill with him and Cooh). Hard, clean and clear rocket-like drum'n'bass for the dancefloor, with a very high tempo on the Dean Rodell side and a crispy bassline on the Current Value one, all in all resulting in an absolutely surefire piece of wax.
| ||FREEZE & LX ONE / SP:MC & YOUNGSTA - Foreseen / Unidentified - 12" (Osiris Music)|
Four people for two tracks, and something which fits like a glove on Kryptic Minds' label. On the A-side, the confirmed (but still too young to be called veterans) SP:MC and Youngsta pair up for a pulsing, slowly moving and very bassy track, while Freeze and LX One deliver a slightly more dubby number on the flip side. All in all, we stay in clearly delimited dubstep waters here, but the whole thing is well executed and bears a very nice dark overtone.
| ||2562 - Blackout - 12" (Blackout)|
2562 keeps going in his exploration of clear and bassy techno, leaving his dubstep days further behind with every new release. This first release on the new Blackout imprint (don't ask, I have no idea who or what is behind it) is no exception. If the title track is relatively slow and has enough subs to satisfy the fans of this artist's early days, both tracks on the B side are a lot closer to his more recent output: faster beats, higher pitched tones, and generally speaking a sound which navigates the waters between well thought house and digital dub techno.
Back in stock:
| ||ZERO DEGREE - Probe - CD (Ant Zen)|
Very pleasant album by this low profile German artists who's been around for some years but signs here his first full length on Ant Zen. Ambient at times, very spherical from start to finish, "Probe" fits well between Vromb, Abo Ovo and the rest of the semi-atmospheric side of this label's roster. The sounds are a bit old school, the overall mood quite introspect, and the production well executed. One of the most enthralling releases on Ant Zen at the moment, and something whose retro / spatial charm works pretty well.
| ||IGORRR - Baroquecore - 12" (Aentitainment)|
Vinyl pendant to the Ad Noiseam-released "Nostril" full length album, featuring 5 tracks from the CD plus a vinyl exlusive one, and coming in full sleeve artwork. Free of any recognizable influences, new and very fun: here's quite a tremendous slap in the face from an act to follow closely. we find ourselves bouncing up, thrashing out or head-nodding furiously, as we all wished we would again one day. Welcome to “baroque-core”.
| ||DROP THE LIME - Step It Up - 12" (Mirex)|
Back in stock! Very good 12" from Drop The Lime, with six instrumental tracks of very precise and technical breaks, great sound design, and interesting atmospheres. This NYC acts once again manages to build very good tracks of hard hitting breaks with original sounds and without the usual clich?of the noisy breakcore scene. Very well done and recommended.
| ||ANOTHER ELECTRONIC MUSICIAN - Use - CD (n5md)|
As depreciating as this project's name might be, here comes a very solid debut from this american (electronic) musician. Oscillating between very sharp and well produced clicks, electronic dub (think early Pole) and the flowing, melancholic electronica typical to N5md, Another Electronic Musician (Aem) signs here an extremely charming, seducing and quite original CD, which shouldn't be regarded as just "another electronic music album". Surprisingly good and very recommended.
| ||RUN RETURN - Metro North - CD (n5md)|
Run Return's debut full length follows closely their first 7" on N5md, and confirm their taste for subtle soundscapes, delicate syncopated drums and a sense of the melodies that can't but confirm that this act has listened to Boards Of Canada a lot. Slightly more beat oriented than the 7", "Metro North" is a very pleasant, well produced album of melodic and flowing electronica: the kind of music and quality control one can expect from N5md.
| ||HECQ - Steeltongued - 2xCD (Hymen)|
Even though it might follow the same formula as "0000" (a double CD featuring an album and a profusion of remixes), Hecq's sixth album is a huge leap forward for this german producer. Gaining from his experience as a sound designer and leaving behind both the ?-clinical glitch and the Lustmord-ian low soundscapes, "Steeltongued" manages to gain both in complexity and in emotion. Add to this 12 great remixes (including three by Ad Noiseam favorites Spyweirdos, Mothboy and Raoul Sinier), and you get an extremely recommended album that might stay as Hecq's true coming of age. Congratulations.
| ||ARCHITECT - Consume Adapt Create - CD (Hymen)|
Three years after an already branching out, but still firmly industrial minded "Lower Lip Interface", Daniel Myer's Architect project returns with what is in my opinion a much more coherent and up to date album. While he might be giving props in the booklet to people as varied as Otto Von Schirach, Enduser and Telefon Tel Aviv, Architect's new effort focuses on the fine line between complex, idm-minded mid-tempo breaks, enriched with the odd dubstep and d'n'b elements. Still quite dark minded, but warm sounding, here's something which doesn't sound anymore like an intent at freeing Architect's music from its more restrained roots, but actually like its result.
| ||DEV/NULL - Shards Of Rhythm / Rage Template / Tear Shit Up - 12" (Dross Tik)|
He doesn't release much, but it's always tasty. Dev/Null, aka one of the last of the Mohicans of old school breakcore, comes up here with a shattered, percussive and still relatively clear three track EP. Fast, broken (of course), with quite a lot of d'n'b elements and a few rave snippets here and there, Dev/Null makes you all twitch like it's 2004, but comes up with a really strong production. A well cut, well recorded record with a definite dancefloor appeal: breakcore people rejoice!
| ||SOMATIC RESPONSES - s/t - 12" (Zhark International)|
Back in stock: repressed this time on black vinyl comes one of the best known Somatic Responses 12", originally released by Zhark in 2004. Relatively similar to early era Somatic Responses releases on Hymen, this record has all the heavy beats, the distorted basslines, and the heavy Somatic atmospheres that one needs, and this time on vinyl.
| ||VENETIAN SNARES - Salt - 12" (Zhark International)|
Re-pressed and available again! Four tracks of fast, violent and furious breakcore by the rising star of the genre, slowly getting recognized even in the industrial scene. Fucked up rhythms, percussive beats, ever changing tracks, here is a 12" that will show new directions to many.
| ||VILE ENGINEZ - Overthrow / Undermine - 12" (Sub/version)|
Following his dark breakcore debut on Zhark, Vile Enginez presents here a d'n'b / jungle 12" on Praxis's Sub/version sublabel. More accessible, dancefloor-friendly and somehow still gloomy and hard, this new record shows another side of this nice act's music, and allows him to try himself at some warmer sounds. Well done.
| ||MONSTER ZOKU ONSOMB! - Earth Eaters - 2x12" (Death$ucker)|
Cool third album by the australian crazies of MZO, and definitely their most mature and coherent to date. Sampling a lot, respecting little and good natured, the whole thing leans strongly towards a mixture of End's "Sound of Disaster", some early Snog and the everything-goes evil cabaret feeling (but not sound) of old-era My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult. With tracks ranging from raggacore to some who could easily serve as a soundtrack to some Russ Meyer action, "Earth Eaters" is a very fun ride, and a good produced one. Fresh, charming, and quite insane.
| ||KRUMBLE - Nasty Nasty - 12" (Death$ucker)|
Krumble has many faces, and while the man might be mostly known for his hard and playful breakcore on Peace Off, one shouldn't forget his drum'n'bass or, as it is the case with this 12" on Bristol's Death$ucker, his raggacore production. A self acclaimed nasty four trackers that will send ragga jungle fans bouncing till their trip on their dreads, here comes something which is at the same time surprisingly out of tune with the current apparent demise of the genre and a nice way to kick start it again.
| ||SOUNDBITES - The Soundbites Experience - 12" (Death$ucker)|
The fonky shit, you say? Bong-Ra's Utrecht-based buddies Soundbites have no respect for aging UK ravers, as they intend to demonstrate with this "Soundbites experience", irreverently dubbed "Bootlegs for the mashed up generation". A mixture of high speed drum'n'bass, Prodigy (and other) sped up samples, rave sounds and the occasional 8 bit sample, this goes somewhere between a less noisy DJ Scotch Egg and a less breaky Bong-Ra. And on top of this, the production is really good. A solid, energetic DJ record, and quite a recommended one.
| ||THE TEKNOIST / EUSTACHIAN - Drunk Drunken Drunkard - 12" (Death$ucker)|
Released exactly at the same time as the "Pillaged & Plundered" split 12" by the same artists on Ad Noiseam, "Drunk Drunken Drunkard" is the other 12" spit out by Eustachian and The Teknoist for their 2008 european tour. With a rather melodic, Enduser-esque track by The Teknoist and a surprisingly breakcore (and less metal) one by Eustachian, it confirms all the extremely good things that one should think about these two acts. Mandatory.
| ||ARX KAELI - Highway - CD (Acidsamovar)|
Collectors and fans of new acts and crazy packaging, look-out. Hailing from Russia, Arx Kraeli presents here his first album, a wild ride of smooth electronica and subdued drum'n'bass beats, in a heavy, cut out and laser-etched wooden box. It's all very well done (but don't ask me how), and the music, bearing the quality mark of Acidsamovar, is no exception. It will be interesting to see what Arx Kaeli does in the future, but, for the moment, this box is enough to justify a purchase.
| ||MEANDER - Dreaming In Reverse - 12" (Low Res)|
Excellent first full-on release for Meander, the "IDM-ish" project of the dutch producer better known for his hardcore ouput as Ophidian. Very broken, full of drum'n'bass sweeping basses but at the same time very clear and contained, here comes a 12" which is both very driven and intelligently produced. Meander / Ophidian's experience is obvious here, this is definitely not the production of a newcomer. Reminding a bit of Tarmvred or some DJ Hidden's structures, "Dreaming In Reverse" is a hell of a great record.
| ||RAFAEL ANTON IRISARRI - Daydreaming - CD (Miasmah)|
Back from the vault are a few copies of this otherwise sold out debut (and so far only) album by Seattle's Rafael Anton Irisarri, released in 2007 on Deaf Center's Miasmah label. A splendid but pitch black album based on long piano melodies, distant drones and even more distant glitches, "Daydreaming" is a particularely sad and introvert CD, which takes the most emotional and melancholic side of the other Miasmah releases, but expresses them in a very direct and stripped down way. Depressing, maybe, but splendid.
| ||KRENG - L'Autopsie Phenomenale De Dieu - CD (Miasmah)|
Excellent first album by this one-man project from Belgium. A sad but challenging, lush and varied combination of dark atmospheric tones, piano, samples and jazz instrumentations, "L'autopsie ph?m?le de Dieu" is something which fits perfectly on Miasmah and its part dark part avant-garde roster. Reminding at times of the darkest moments of TKDE, this is a very recommended and deep album.
| ||ELEGI - Sistereis - CD (Miasmah)|
Back in stock, the first CD by Elegi, already on Deaf Center's Miasmah label. Somewhat inspired by a dark travel at sea, this album is quite darker than the following "Verde", and focuses more on very moving and somber soundscapes and drones and less on accoustic arrangements. A deep trip and somewhat that would fit well as a soundtrack to an old black & white movie, "Sistereis" shows that Elegi was already an act not to be missed back in 2007 (and yes, we missed him back then). Time to redeem.
| ||16 BIT - Put Ya Dirt Inside / Ford Fiesta - 10" (Destpub)|
Nice and original record for Destpub's fourth release. The London-based 16 Bit crew deliver on the one side a quite percussive, hi-fi sounding and pretty changing dubstep number, very rich in sounds and tonalities. On the other side, some jazzy and latin referrences are added to a slightly straighter track, giving the whole thing an edge rarely reached in dubstep. Nice one.
| ||THE OUTSIDE AGENCY / CURRENT VALUE / SWITCH TECHNIQUE - Crossbreed Definition Series Part 3 - 12" (Genosha One Seven Five)|
Third volume of The Outside Agency's collaborative series in which they focus on the colliding point between their hardcore and drum'n'bass. The guests this time around are Current Value, for a resolutely straight and very pounding track quite on the hardcore side and, on the flip, Switch Technique, whose collaboration gives way to some more d'n'b elements. Of course, the whole thing is wonderfully produced, mastered and cut, therefore enabling the listener to actually hear what Current Value and Switch Technique brought to The Outside Agency's plate. Another sure hitter and mandatory record for anybody following this act (or DJ Hidden) or this sound.
| ||CLOAKS - Versus Grain - CD (3BY3)|
First full length album by Cloaks, following (and containing) two two trackers also released on their own 3b3 label. While these guys have been catalogued dusbtep, people here might recognize them as a predominantly industrial and noise act. If the tempo and beats can remind of some Vex'd material (without the bombastic elements), "Versus Grain" is a very gritty and scraping affair, and something where the distortion level is always high. It's still quite slow, people will headbang more than dance to this material, and it might very well be something useful to bridge the industrial / rhythmic noise freaks and the dubstep fans.
| ||CLOAKS - Desolate Turves - 12" (3BY3)|
Cloaks are back, this time with a five tracks EP which confirm all the good things that one could think of this still young british act judging from their past 12" and album. Raw, dark, their mixture of analogue noise and mammoth-esque dubstep is not for the faint of heart, and I'd be quite curious to know what all these dubstep people who have gone to house recently think of this. Anyway, just like the rest of Cloaks's discography, "Desolate Turves" sounds like dubstep rhythms written with old school industrial and noise instruments and tones, the whole thing managing to sound both particularely scraping and very detailled. Very recommended.
| ||CLOAKS - Junk - 12" (3BY3)|
Second "single" of sort for Cloaks with two new tracks taken from the "Versus Grain" CD, and which go further at bridgeing dubstep with rusty and gritty industrial noise. The result is slow paced, massive, menacing and relentless. Scraping, efficient, reminding a bit of old Vex'd material, and something which definitely needs to be checked out.
| ||DEAD FADER - Autumn Rot - 12" (3BY3)|
The fact that Dead Fader or, by extension, Cloaks and their 3by3 label are labelled and seen as being dubstep proves that, a lot more than the music itself, it's marketing that matters. Just like Cloaks, Dead Fader is about as dubstep as Winterkälte are tech house, and "Autumn Rot" will sound a lot more at home between an Asche and a Tarmvred track than squeezed between Skream and Pinch. Name dropping aside, this is a solid, raw, bubbly and beaty mid-tempo noise 12", which sounds deliciously old school and is pretty well done. But it should also not be taken for what it obviously is not.
| ||OYAARSS - A La Holeage - 12" (Abstractions)|
I guess the sun doesn't shine much in the latvian studio of the young Oyaars, for this debut 12" is not exactly your happy house dubstep. Very slow, extremely industrial sounding, featuring a few orchestral snippets and definitely not aiming at the dancefloor (unless as the opening band for some doom act), "A La Holeage" is among the grittiest and heaviest dubstep I have heard, to the point where this genre's name might not really apply anymore. On the B side, Cloaks, who are also not known for the cleanliness or speed of their material, deliver a slightly friendlier and more accessible remix, but the whole thing stays pitch black and very rigid. Well yes, I quite like this, and definitely recommend it.
| ||MONSTA / MR KEY - Space Raiders - 12" (Subtrakt)|
Interesting experiment in which a heavily hip-hop based big dubstep tune by two relative newcomers (Monster and Mr Key) get presented both in its original (bassy and very urban) version and remixed by two sure name of d'n'b, Dean Rodell (of Machine Code) and Rayden. Surprisingly, these reworks on the B side didn't really sped up the original material, but enriched it with a tighter, cleaner production and a lot of little blips and effects. All in all a rather accessible dubstep record that should have no issue seducing crowds, all the more in its strong version by Dean Rodell
| ||V/A - North South EP - 12" (Subtrakt)|
While it might be a notch lighter than the "Low Life" EP, this other four track compilation on Subtrakt features some nicely heavy tracks of classically built, dark dubstep. On the A side, Janner delivers a strong semi 16 Bit-esque, dubby tune, while the well known Rogue State close the B side with another very efficient one. The other two tracks, by Monster and Defekta are nice as well, rounding up an EP that can work as a bridge between "regular" dubstep and the tougher-than-thou material usually found on this label.
| ||ARX KAELI & HEIMSTATT YIPOTASH - X - 7" (Sealt)|
Just with like Arx Kaeli's "Highway" album, the first thing one notices about this split 7" is its packaging: two embedded pieces of laser-etched wood, with a cut mirror piece in its middle; clearly not the kind of packaging into which you run every day. Music-wise, Arx Kraeli's side gets a bit funkier and more twisted, while, on the B side, Hands's Heimstatt Yipotash have slowed their tempo a bit, and deliver two efficient industrial piece that have the too good idea of relying on their rhythm rather than on distortion. A cool 4 tracker, and another eye-catching, muscle-building packaging.
| ||NOISIA - Machine Gun - 2x12" (Division)|
Back in stock! This remix double EP for Noisia's surefire hit from their latest album is really quite something. Besides the "extended" version of the dynamite-like title track (already something quite awe inspiring in the way it mixes Noisia's drum'n'bass production techniques with electro and bombastic dubstep) are excellent remixes by Amon Tobin (who does a great job at using Noisia's track and coming up with something very personal), 16 Bit (with one of their best remixes so far) and Spor. Excellent from start to finish
