If you head over to Ad Noiseam you can preview and pre-order tracks from my forthcoming E.P – Al The Colours Of The Night.
Get your business face on with a slice of the official info below – more of which can be found at http://www.adnoiseam.net/adn140. The Machine Code remix of Dirt (Mary Anne Hobb’s set opener for her recent U.S tour, Sonar & Boiler Room shows) is the first part of a remix swap between Dead Rodell, Current Value & Myself, the second part being my remix of User Error which is featured on CD2 of the Machine Code album.
“The night has roared, and now has many colours and shades on King Cannibal’s most varied record to date. From this established producer’s insidious remix of Bong-Ra’s “Come Out To Play” or Machine Code’s anthemic and furious version of “Dirt” to the more laid back and melodic remixes by Krumble and Dead Fader, this EP is an accurate snapshot of what King Cannibal is about: not only can he pack a dancefloor, but he also delivers gentle tunes or impressive beatwork. King Cannibal has a posse, an untamed, diverse one.(get this on 12″ / as digital files)”
KING CANNIBAL WRITES…
As mentioned previously on Gods Of War, our friends over in Berlin at Ad Noiseam are in the throws of celebrating the labels 10th birthday. The final party is due to take place July 9th in Beirut with Broken Note, Igorrr, The Teknoist and Nicolas Chevreux. Nicolas has put together a guest mix for Eclectro which features Dead Fader’s remix of The King Cannibal track ‘Murder Us’ which is forthcoming on my ‘All The Colours Of The Night’ EP for the label. This is the first time this has been aired aside my live shows from the end of last year. The mix can be listened to and downloaded here,

Ad Noiseam, I hope you are used to that label name as it will be getting used around here a fair bit in the near future.
Miike Teknoist contacted me last year about putting together a remix of Aragami Style, i think originally planned as part of a mix cd. I’m happy to say the release has found a home in the form of The Teknoist’s new album ‘Trainwreck Magnetism‘ which is available on Ad Noiseam. A tightly clenched fist of an album containing original solo tracks and remixes. Mu-Ziq, Drumcorps Hecq & Exillion also get the Trainwreck treatment. As said on the press release “The Teknoist drives one of his main points home again: however hard his music might be, it’s a world apart from just throwing fast beats around, but requires a lot of open mindedness and care. ”
Available on both CD and digital download NOW
“The Teknoist is back, and he has a posse. “Trainwreck Magnetism” not only gathers the newest composition by one of the rare musicians who can combine the words “breakcore” and “pristine”, but also his remixes for high profile friends such as Drumcorps, King Cannibal, Hecq and others. It’s hard (very), sometimes dark, often angry, but also particularly varied. A highly rewarding album which satisfy both the urge to thrash around and the need for carefully crafted music, The Teknoist’s new full-length is another crown for this pillar of the breakcore and hardcore sounds.”
KING CANNIBAL SHARES…
Whilst browsing Diabolikdvd i stumbled across a strange looking VHS titled Video Horror Show Vol.2, a product boasting to be a 15 min witch house track created as an original score for this haunted tape, on blue vhs no less. What can i say, i was drawn to digging out more.
http://videohorrorshow.com/ are behind these superb limited tapes, Each seeming to be different exercises of cutting up all kinds of visual dark matter and pairing the footage which a variety of aural sludge (and i say that in total compliment) focussing on an act per tape. Think of them as in home installations, designed to make your TV twist and moan like it was in Videodrome. These make great companions with last year’s Jigoku by Lovely Jon and The Cherrystones, more focussed on italian bloodlust, goats and Barbara Bouchet than the Clouzot kinetic art and vintage region 3 of Jigoku.
This speaks to us here at Godsofwar on all levels so we URGE to investigate and CONSUME. They have a membership option allowing a year’s subscription over on their site http://videohorrorshow.com , or you can still pick up The Five Wounds

So the end of 2010 is near and the blogs are full of round-ups and best of lists whilst the record shops take a breather from new releases. Last weekend saw my final two gigs of the year, at the Ninja XX after party at Concord 2 in Brighton and The Way Of The Ninja album launch at the Rhythm Factory in East London. Thanks to everyone who came out for the shows, extra thanks to those who mobbed out the launch making it strictly one in one out on the door and going nothing short of buckwild on the dancefloor.
Wednesday night saw me attending my first ever album launch as The Way Of The Ninja was up for DJ Mag’s Best Of British 2010 : best compilation award. I had stiff competition up against big names like Scuba and dBridge & instra:mental (who have been particularly influential to me this year) and wasn’t surprised to miss out to Autonomic Fabric 50. Congratulations guys. Also congratulations to Bonobo who won for Best Album and Ninja Tune for Best Label (so i guess i had a default win of sorts).
Before i head off to New Zealand tomorrow for a break over the christmas & new year period (i’ve got a large number of press interviews lines up for my stay, so if your in that part of the world stay tuned to your local favourite stations) i completed an interview for Miami crew Smut & Bass. Its fairly long and spills the beans a bit on how my second album is taking shape and what sounds you can expect as well as the thought process on my Blackout track and general production talk. You can check the piece out HERE.
NTSH London have put together a 15 minute documentary and behind the scenes piece on Ninja’s big XX show at Ewer Street earlier in the year. Its the best little doc i’ve seen on the label tied in to the 20th birthday – and i’m not just saying that as i feature quite heavily. honest.
With that being all things 2010 you can get a glimpse of 2011 with my remix of Memory9’s new single feat Juakali (whom i have also recently collaborated with) on Data Transmissions 2010 round up mix (podcast 075) which you can check out HERE or on soundcloud below. Whilst my material in the past has been very focussed on deep round low end and sharp high frequencies i decided to experiment with a ‘flatter’ sound for this, typical in more modern productions.
