DJ Hidden & Broken Note / Niveau Zero & Balkansky – Existence / Obey – adn155


ImageFour confirmed, veteran Ad Noiseam artists and a myriad of versions, edits and corrections ping-ponged between all of them. “Existence” and “Obey” are the carefully laid-out, detailled and fresh results of musicians having fun with each other’s material and proving how at ease they are with both dubstep and drum’n’bass. DJ Hidden’s sharpness, Broken Note’s epic proportions, Niveau Zero’s clever open-mindedness and Balkansky’s meticulousness: yes they managed to pack all of this in these two highly cohesive tracks. A must-have for anybody into any of these acts. Get this on 12″ / as digital files

Four artists, two tracks, and two pairings of some of the most insidious and powerful dubstep and drum’n’bass gathered on one record.

The meeting-up of two high profile but very distinct producers, “Existence” is, by any standard, a beats of a track. Combining the clinically sharp and melodic drum’n’bass of DJ Hidden with the organic basses and monstrously detailed sound assemblage of Broken Note was a tour-de-force for both parties. Here is a tune that went through countless versions, the artists ping-ponging with beats, drops and low frequencies. The result paid off, as “Existence” is almost a genre in itself, from its hypnotic intros to the staccato oscillations of its bassline. Played out by both DJ Hidden and Broken Note at recent concerts, the fruit of this long alchemical process has proven to be an exhilarating, deadly one.

On the flip side, Balkansky & Niveau Zero’s collaboration is another carefully planned effort of two producers with different techniques. Started as an experiment right before an Ad Noiseam night in Paris during which both acts were playing, “Obey” is, just like “Existence”, the result of a Niveau Zero’s epic dubstep colliding with Balkansky’s gritty one (and Cooh’s infectious drum’n’bass). Both carried by a rich melody and broken by sudden drops and edits, this track is heaven for head-bangers and thrashers with its abysmal bass and constant changes.

Much has been written about the combination of hard dubstep and dark drum’n’bass, and many tracks have been written to try to reconciliate both genres. With this record, though, it is the collaboration of confirmed, veteran artists which gave birth to the most cohesive and efficient hybrid of these styles to date.

Hecate – Brew Hideous Remixes – adn143


Truth through diversity: Hecate breaks a long period of silence with an EP on which four of her closest collaborators get to remix and mash up material from her “Brew Hideous” album. From the fast paced breakcore of the Amboss and Vile Enginez remixes to the solemnity of the White Darkness (a.k.a. Bong-Ra) and Slutmachine ones, Hecate’s music gets revealed and amplified under each of its aspect. Let is be heard that the reigning queen of breakcore is back, not alone, and with a vengeance. (get this on 12″ / as digital files)

Hecate breaks the longest silence in her career with this eagerly awaited companion EP to her latest album, in which four of her closest collaborators get to remix, mash up and re-compose material from the “Brew Hideous” full length.Pitch dark, gritty, mysterious, the touch of this essential and veteran figure of breakcore is easily recognized here, but treated in four very distinct ways. Berlin’s Amboss comes with a shattered (and shattering) breakcore tune in which rapid fire drum’n’bass beats collide on top of Hecate’s trademark dark noise. The later is at the core of Slutmachine (a regular Hecate partner in crime) remix, more solemn, mid-tempo and providing more space for Hecate’s incantation-like vocals in an oppressive, creeping manner.

On the flip side, Zhark’s Vile Enginez gives way to Hecate’s extravaganza with a speedcore-leaning broken tune, something in which the darkness of the original material is set aside to the profit of sheer madness Bong-Ra, who has often shared stages, records and remixes with Hecate, is of course present with a closing track on this new EP, this time under his White Darkness moniker, with which he signs a suffocating, heavy and particularly dense piece; almost beat-less, but somber and massive.

A gloomy, noisy and aggressive EP, “Brew Hideous Remixes” is a way for Hecate to come back to the front of the stage and bring a new light to what was arguably one of her most under-rated release. A rare treat for fans of utterly shattered beats and rhythms, it finally brings her again to the vinyl format with four solid collaborations that enable her material to be presented in as many ways as possible. From her more solemn side to the hardest of her breakcore nature, “Brew Hideous Remixes” is Hecate’s music displayed at its truest, most varied and possibly hardest.

Ad Noiseam is proud to announce today the release of a new EP by
Balkansky (a.k.a. COOH) and Loop Stepwalker:
Ad Noiseam adn140
12" / digital - Feb 22nd
The renowned detailled and personal production of Balkansky (a.k.a.
COOH) meet the rage and insolence of the young Loop Stepwalker,
resulting in a powerful record which puts rawness back into dubstep.
"Fraktals", the first collaborative release between these two artists,
is an energy-packed and original record which will fit perfectly
alongside Broken Note or Niveau Zero both on the dancefloor and on
turntables. Dirty but subtle, hard but balanced: the first step of an
exciting path.

1. Out now: new releases by Funckarma, Broken Note, Larvae, The
Teknoist, Abelcain / Cdatakill and Sickboy

Out now and all available straight from Ad Noiseam are:

FUNCKARMA "Dubstoned Vol. 2" - adn 99 - 12"
More than just dubstep: Funckarma make this genre theirs and re-write
its foundation anew with this barrier-breaking record. Heavy but sharp,
clear but dub-influenced, mid-tempo but infectious, the second volume of
Funckarma's take on the dubstep genre is a new take at one of today's
dominant genre by unequalled producers.

LARVAE "Loss Leader" - adn101 CD
A work in two acts, Larvae's third full length album is a perfect
snapshot of this band's tastes and talents. With a touching and poetic
first part made of epic guitar melodies and drony atmospheres and a
second act going back to Larvae's beatier and heavier "Monster Music"
past, "Loss Leader" is at times poignant, at times playful. Another well
thought step forward for the band (in two directions at once), and
another impressive work for Larvae.

BROKEN NOTE "Crux / Zealot" - adn102 12"
Broken Note puts the grist back in dubstep for their first record on Ad
Noiseam, and demonstrate how heavy, dark and efficient this genre can
be. Shattered, colossal and bridging dubstep and breakcore, the two
tracks on this 12” are guaranteed to pack dancefloors and ruin a few

THE TEKNOIST "... Like A Hurricane Made Of Zombies" - adn103 CD / 2x12"
Hard, relentless, creative, monstrous, and still friendly: The
Teknoist's first full length album is a storm of shattered pounding
beats, anthemic riffs, and aggressive breaks. And still, it is also a
humane and deep work that knows when to take the time to seduce its
listener. Between the most insane moshpit and inventive melodies, here
comes hurricane of yet uncharted magnitude.

ABELCAIN & CDATAKILL "Passage" - adn104 CD
All good things are three: Abelcain and Cdatakill, two of the most
essential breakcore act to have ever graced this scene, pair up once
again on "Passage", a full length CD presenting for the first time their
tracks from the "Six Stigmata" and "Playing with Knives" record,
enriched by four new collaborations. Hard-hitting, highly varied and
presenting anew some cornerstone material of the breakcore sound,
"Passage" is a mandatory release not only for fans of these two
veterans, but for anybody who intends on understanding what breakcore is

SICKBOY "Time To Play" - adn106 CD
Sickboy's exhilarating, enthusiastic and insane-as-ever fifth full
length album features this musician's most infectious, catchiest and
most efficient material. While the noise might be gone for good,
Sickboy's new clothes are of the colourful party kind. Mixing old school
rave, new school electro, breaks and madness, Sickboy hits the nail on
its head and invites everybody to play, rave and party non-stop. Refreshing!

Machine Girl 12″ – adn97

Re-mastered, re-cut and given a whole record on their own, the four tracks written by Enduser and Line 47 back in 2007 get a second life on Ad Noiseam. Ranging from the most aggressive and noisy breakcore to melodic, syncopated material, the material on this record shows both producers at the top of their form and still is, 5 years after their original release on Sonicterror, a pearl of the breakcore scene.

A1. .xm
A2. it
B1. I Never Knew
B2. Enduser: Port 666 (remix by Line 47)

Originally released in 2003 as part of a split between Machine Girl and Enduser on the late Sonicterror label, the four Machine Girl tracks on this record are the fruit of a collaboration between Enduser and Line 47 (who were also running Sonicterror). Meeting a frantic success upon its release, reaching meaningless price on eBay and badly in need of a better, louder mastering, these tracks get a second life on a record on their own on Ad Noiseam. Yes, DJ are finally going to be able to DJ these tracks without having to crank the mixer all the way up.

Recorded at the same time as some of the most well known Enduser material, the Machine Girl material combine Lynn Standafer’s noisy breakcore fury (obvious on “.xm”) with the intricate and slightly more melodic side of Scott Weber’s Line 47. Ranging from the relatively straight distorted beats of “.XM” to the chopped up, very Enduser-esque violent dancehall of “It” to the subtle, complex and catchy bass lines of “I Never Knew”, and ending with Line 47‘s remix of Enduser‘s “Port 666”, syncopated, shattered and still humane, Machine Girl still impress 5 years after the original release of these tracks by their variation and drive. May it be in their most aggressive moments or in the softer ones, they manage to send an audience packing a dancefloor, and still interest and keep the attention level high.

Green static hasn’t never sound so good, paradoxically so clear and so hard at the same time. More than a plunge in the past of two of the most recognized American producers, but a clean-up and a new presentation of unmissable material, and a new occasion for Machine Girl to impress.
