2methyl :: Etched (Agnost1k)

A definitive leftfield industrial avalanche, Etched is a textural bass and beat smorgasbord that pushes sounds of chaos to the edge. Reminiscent of early Amon Tobin (ref. Supermodified on Ninja Tune, 2000—especially “Rhino Jockey”) minus the jazzy elements, here we see the talented French producer (Nicolas Druoton aka 2methyl) reveal Etched following his 2015 release […]

Igorrr & Ruby My Dear :: Maigre EP (Ad Noiseam)

Essentially this is the meeting of two great minds and together they have exploited every last inch of the modern electronic arsenal to make a resounding avant-garde statement. This could well be the future of music. 30-seconds in as the luscious pizzicato strings give way to a warped electronic growl you know you’re in for […]

Jvox :: Strange Universe (Component)

A level-straddling blend; earthy, groovy and easy to dig but with a deep, clever halo of abstract thematics and transcendent yearnings which might be harder to swallow were they not so smoothly anchored. Jvox started out as an MC before switching to the machines and although he doesn’t break out the mic on Strange Universe—his […]

JITTER ROOM :: A Breakcore Film by Ruby My Dear and Lisa Chabbert

This is a really well made cinematic production […]

Ruby My Dear :: Form (Ad Noiseam)

The psychotic programming of his previous work is still in abundance, if a little more refined, but there is also something a bit more humanistic now, a dimension of emotive response, evidenced for example by sections of sweeping organic sounds, slightly ethereal in nature, or haunting piano refrains and beautiful melodic snatches over moody harmonic […]

Oyaarss :: Smaida Greizi Nakamiba (Ad Noiseam)

What’s left to consume on Smaida Greizi Nakamiba is an abrupt ebb and disjointed flow of brittle melodic bursts buried underneath a cacophonous stream of clipped percussion, broken synths, erratic rhythms and torn layers of ambient, drone and industrial shadows. Oyaarss (aka Latvian-raised Arvīds Laivinieks) returns with his sophomore release for Berlin’s Ad Noiseam following Bads‘ heavy electronic debris. Smaida Greizi […]

Enduser / Needle Sharing / The Teknoist :: Enduser Shares Needles with the Teknoist (Ad Noiseam)

Such relentless bludgeoning could easily hide sloppy thinking, but this troika inscribe enough detail to make it seem like scrolling commentary, a comedian’s aside or footnotes to furiously scribbled text. A rat king of industrial beats and snarling bass. Enduser is San Franscisco’s Lynn Standafer, with whom I am familiar through a small but assertive […]

Mad EP and Shadow Huntaz :: Nightmare Scenario EP (Acroplane)

Nightmare Scenario delivers sharp hard hitting vocal attacks coupled with some really low and dirty beats. It’s slow and dark with a fair bit of distortion, in a similar vein to the mighty Dead Fader EP that came out a while ago. [Release page] This collaboration between Shadow Huntaz and Mad EP promised quality from […]

The latest mix from albient, the mix-meddling / audio-fiddling arm of igloomag Contributing Editor Alan Lockett‘s expressive enterprise, hosts 19 audio-dreamscenes commemorating summer’s turn.

This release is a big one. It’s a body mover from two of the leading lights of the Ad Noiseam dubstep stable.

Larvae :: Exit Strategy (Ad Noiseam)

It’s hard not to get all poetical when talking about this album, with its vast textures and intricate details. It is slow, subtle and at times quite fragile, which may be a surprise if you know the earlier work of Matthew Jeanes (aka Larvae). [Release page | Bandcamp] Exit Strategy is a beautiful album. It’s […]

Esjayes :: Ardiente EP (Deep Site)

This is the first release from Esjayes, but the man behind the project is a well seasoned veteran. It is in fact the newest incarnation of Simon Smerdon, who’s work as Mothboy on the great Ad Noiseam label was pretty seminal. Ardiente is a deep house journey. It is subtle and intelligent, full of interesting […]

Raoul Sinier :: Guilty Cloaks (Ad Noiseam)

This album sounds like a much more personal affair then earlier works to me, retaining many of the trademark stylings that have become associated with Raoul’s sound, but maybe a touch more stripped back, still gripping and intriguing with complex rhythms and complex sounds, but now almost like proper songs with melodies and arrangements going […]

Hecate :: Brew Hideous Remixes (Ad Noiseam)

Amboss, Slutmachine, Vile Enginez and White Darkness (A.K.A. Bong-Ra) are the guilty parties, and with a roll call like this, you may well have a fairly good idea of what lies beneath the shiny black surface of this vinyl disk. A pitch black assault of the senses; oppressive, gut wrenching, unyielding and uncompromising in any […]

Subheim :: No Land Called Home (Ad Noiseam)

Bass lines at center stage, NLCH is a masterpiece of tumultuous electronics and penetrating rhythms meant more for midnight desert gatherings or full theater engagements rather than individual headphone listening. [Release page] No Land Called Home, perhaps Subheim‘s most impacting release to date, collects the missing links between instrumental electronics, turbulent emotions and layers of […]

Karsten Pflum :: No Noia My Love (Hymen)

The intermediate moods tucked between these warped low-end frequencies is perhaps Karsten Pflum’s most valued asset. Often a collection of therapeutic electronic debris, No Noia My Love takes Hymen into untapped directions full of spatial funk, corrugated rhythms and sliced melodies that stick to the cerebral cortex with pleasing turbulence. [Listen | Purchase] Taking a […]

RUBRENE :: Glowing Overtones igloomag mix

Glowing Overtones is a snapshot of the current experimental-dubstep scene mixed as a continuous sheet of audible electricity. Chris Bolszo (aka DJ Rubrene) splices forty-three minutes of rhythm-infested bass lines, glitched-out melodies, ricocheting dub, and a plethora of digital manipulation tearing through low-riding overtones. Taking disjointed percussion to the limit and tying them together with […]

Mobthrow :: s/t (Ad Noiseam)

Dark brooding atmospheres that build up to immense barrages of sound are then tempered by deft and hauntingly beautiful snatches of melodies played on a surprising array of instruments, while the drums and rhythmic elements pin the thing together with a combination of minute detail and the suggestion of a force and power that is […]

Niveau Zero :: In_Sect (Ad Noiseam)

Frankly, there are far too many genres involved on this record to keep count of, yet they’re all flawlessly brought together to provide a very rewarding listening experience for both the club and the living room. [Listen | Purchase] In_Sect actually dropped over the summer, but as we’re still giving it regular listens some six […]

Matta :: Prototype (Ad Noiseam)

Listening to Prototype on either headphones or a home hi-fi simply won’t cut it, as you’ll never fully understand what this record will do to you when unleashed on a punishing club system, whereupon you’ll have no choice but to lurch around the dancefloor and make the most hideous of gurning bassfaces. The German electronic […]

Keef Baker :: Pure Language EP (Ad Noiseam, CD)

Six tracks of splendid crunchy beatwork find Baker mixing jazz, ambience, male and female vocals and orchestral goodness into deeply head-nodding frameworks. He’s out to confound everyone, to put his past behind him, and let us know that the genres […]
