Glitches and experimentations from Oyaarss's well-hidden side-project.
Wednesday, 17 December 2014 17:40

While Oyaarss is steadily reaching more ears and his "Zemdega" album is gathering more praises (such as this review from Cvlt Nation), little has been heard and even less written about Tripplexis, the well hidden, recent side-project by our favorite Latvian producer.

Apparently started as a way to combine Oyaarss's taste for noisy and epic build-ups with both hardcore techno tones and experimental setups, Tripplexis's output so far has been a collection of obscure, gritty but often evocative tracks, which you can listen to the project's Soundcloud page here.

A new track has been uploaded today, allegedly related to a "super secret multimedia project" and featuring what seems to be some old school industrial drumming mixed with Oyaarss's distinguishable emotional patterns. You can listen to the track here or together with a simple video below. Enjoy.

 
Out now: Igorrr & Ruby My Dear "Maigre" EP
Sunday, 14 December 2014 13:26

Igorrr & Ruby My Dear "Maigre" - adn184
Out now and immediately available on vinyl, CD and as digital files is Ad Noiseam's closing release for the year, the eagerly awaited collaboration between Igorrr and Ruby My Dear, the "Maigre" EP (adn184).

A match made in heaven: Igorrr, well known for the madness of multi-instrumental epic breakcore, pairs up with Ruby My Dear, one of the finest and most imaginative producers of the genre. The result is an intense EP which seamlessly combines these two musicans' own sounds and takes the listener on an impressive trip. Hardcore beats, metal riffs, growls, opera vocals, sub-basses, absurd samples, sudden breaks: all these and more are found in "Maigre", not thrown aimlessly, but carefully wrought in an EP which might advance a whole music scene forward.

Gore Tech's Art Of War, the hybrid edition.
Tuesday, 09 December 2014 20:11

Gore Tech's Art Of War, the hybrid edition.
It is now almost two yearst that Gore Tech first went to war with his "Mainframe Warfare" mix, which was back then a mostly breakcore and metal mash-up affair. The man has just grabbed his weapons again, this time for Hard Sound Radio 2014's final show. Gore Tech's late 2014's radio warfare is now a "hybrid" one, kicking off in the jungle, then moving fast and steadily towards more broken drum'n'bass and heavy drumstep.

You can listen to Gore Tech'ss "Hybrid Warfare" mix right here or below. Grab your best dancing shoes, turn up the volume and enjoy.

A blast from the past: listen to an unreleased Mothboy remix of Larvae's "Vostok"
Monday, 08 December 2014 12:07

Larvae has recently uploaded a few unreleased tracks, verions and remixes on his Soundcloud page. The latest tune to make it out from his vault is a highly uncommon, booty-shaking heavy techno remix of "Vostok" (itself an often overlooked Larvae track, originally released on the "Proven In Action" compilation released by First Aid Recordings in 2003).

Mothboy was always known for mixing pre-dubstep bass heaviness with club-oriented techno, as demonstrated on his three Ad Noiseam albums. This remix for Larvae pushes the fader a bit further in the later direction, ending up sounding very infectious, efficient and driving, but also very unlike anything ever done by Larvae. Enjoy.

 
Watch a video report of Oyaarss's first surround-sound presentation.
Wednesday, 03 December 2014 13:34

The release party for Oyaarss's third studio album, ("Zemdega", adn184) was a very particular one. First, because it took place in a cinema, where a seated full-house enjoyed the ten tracks of this album without the usual burdens of a dancefloor. Then, because, as one would expect in such a place, the whole thing was enriched with a taylor-made visual presentation (prepared by Ojars Saulitis, the photograph responsible for the imagery of all Oyaarss albums). Finally and most importantly, this event was also the first time that Oyaarss presented his music in 5.1 surround sound. The whole "Zemdega" was re-mixed to fit a dolby system, adding a sense of depth and space to this already immersive music.

We hope to be able to bring this kind of Oyaarss presentation to more cinemas and cities in the future. In the meantime, here is a short video report of the premiere, which took place on November 6th at Kino Citadele in Riga, Latvia. Click play, enjoy, imagine being there, and read the subtitles.

This video can be watched on Vimeo here, on Youtube there, or yet on Dailymotion.

Watch a video trailer to Igorrr & Ruby My Dear's "Maigre"
Monday, 01 December 2014 13:24

A desolate castle in southern France, a friendly greyhound, two meditative breakcore geniuses and a cake: below is the video trailer to Igorrr & Ruby My Dear's "Maigre" EP (adn184), which will be released in exactly two weeks on vinyl, CD and as digital files.

This video trailer was shot and edited by Lisa Chabbert's Ciné2000, who had already created the "Jitter Room" short-film, based on Ruby My Dear's track of the same name.

Click below or here (or there) to watch this video trailer, enjoy, spread the word, and remember that you can already pre-order your copy of "Maigre", getting a rebate in the meantime.

See Lebanon from the other side, to the tone of Ben Lukas Boysen.
Thursday, 27 November 2014 13:55

See Lebanon from the other side, to the tone of Ben Lukas Boysen.
The following video by Vincent Urban & Stefan Templer is relevant to Ad Noiseam for two reasons. First, because its soundtrack is taken from the Ad Noiseam-released album "Gravity" by Ben Lukas Boysen (adn168, which you can get on all formats here). But it is also close to our heart because it presents a different side of a country which has been important in the label's history.

Many Ad Noiseam artists have played in Lebanon, may it be at wild raves in the desert or in clubs (the latest Ad Noiseam representative to set foot there being Oyaarss in October 2014). There is a lot more to this country than its great hosts, its fabulous crowd and great shows. The situation of refugees (both from Palestine and Syria) is something which we partially witnessed there, but never touched through our activities.

The short film below presents the activities of Medair, a NGO working to support refugees and here shown working in the Bekaa Valley with Syrian refugees. It is an important task, a terrible situation, a great video, and of course a splendid track.

Re-experience Oyaarss's Maschinenfest 2014 set.
Saturday, 22 November 2014 13:14

A hardcore fan was dedicated enough to film and record the whole of Oyaarss's set at the 2014 edition of the Maschinenfest festival. The result, a 45-minute long dark but reasonably well recorded video which you can watch here or below, is a very interesting testimony of what Oyaarss can be.

While "Zemdega" is a purely electronic album, this show at the Maschinenfest included live drums and live guitars, providing a completely different vibe to the material. Everybody who was there can tell you how intense, loud and beautiful it was. Get an idea of this all below, and check out "Zemdega", and don't miss Oyaarss when they are in your neck of the woods.
