Art of Noize is now back from Emmabodafestivalen 2012 which year after year offers some of the best electronic bookings that Swedish Festival life has to offer. This year was no exception and there were definitely some bookings I had wanted to see for a very long time (For example HAEZER, KOAN Sound, Gesaffelstein etc.). For those of you that haven’t visited the festival, it is located in the middle of the forest in Småland:

 

 

Emmaboda being in the middle of the damn forest really adds to it’s atmosphere as an old school rave and its the only one that feels like it in Sweden. As soon as I arrived I realized how similar the place looked to last year and it felt comforting. I didn’t want this place to change all too much and that seems to be the general consensus of the organizers as well. The goal is not to grow but rather to continue organizing a great festival in the long run, creating a fantastic legacy. This is the type of business model few Swedish festivals have followed in the past and in turn it has caused them to fail (with few exceptions).

 

 

When I got there, most people we were camping out with had already arrived or were just about to. This included the boys from Antichrist, F.O.O.L, Dödselectro, our homie Serkan from Bonerizing, the ladies from Uniporn and many more friends in the web. Another great new friend to the Art of Noize family is Morten Frool whom I’d been talking to previous to going to Emmaboda this year. He’s a super talented photographer and he ended up helping us out this year. I hope to have him with us next year as well as you will understand from looking at the pictures below: They were all taken by him. Check out his portfolio here: CLICK!

I wanted to post this right before I left for Emmabodafestivalen 2012, but I had to rush out the door. Quite frankly this is in my opinion some of Zeds Dead’s best material as of yet. These are all originals and the quality is astounding. Everything from calm tracks to ragers.

 

Don’t worry, tomorrow we will have a post detailing our experience at Emmaboda Festival 2012 and let you know which interviews we managed to get! :) In the meanwhile grab this fantastic EP.

For our non-swedish readers, this post might seem a little bit irrelevant, but trust me it’s not. Our Swedish readers will know that Emmabodafestivalen or the Emmaboda Festival is a Swedish Festival held each year at the end of July in Småland (a southern region of Sweden). This is the festival which has been most consistent in booking some of the worlds best Electronic music acts over the last few years and that’s exactly why Art of Noize will be present! Last year we snagged interviews and shot live footage of artists such as Feed Me, Danger, Infected Mushroom, F.O.O.L and more.

 

So what do we have in store for this year? Well as always we try to track down interviews with as many of the artists we like as possible. I say track down because this usually involves me running after people, being slightly obnoxious from frustration towards staffers and just straight up trying to convince people why they should do the interview. Why? Because we want cool content for this site. It’s these tactics that have gotten us interviews with the likes of Feed Me (the only face to face video interview with him under the name Feed Me rather than Spor) and Danger (the only English, spoken interview to be found).

 

This years lineup offers artists from so many categories of electronic music. Everything from the hardest, trashiest Electro (HAEZER, F.O.O.L, Antichrist) to House (Bingo Players), Techno (Gesaffelstein, Brodinski), Industrial (Combichrist), to Dubstep (Skream, KOAN Sound, Knife Party) etc. etc. (For the FULL LINEUP click the link).

 

Remember if there is any person in particular you would like us to interview, let us know in the comments or on Facebook and we will try to get that interview. Feel free to post your own question(s) as well!

Popeska is back with, gues what, another completely free banger. As we’ve come to expect from this Atlanta-ite, Atlantian or however else you describe someone who comes from Atlanta, USA, this is dubstep filled with raging basslines, mixed with catchy and heavily effected vocals. The combination is awesome when you’re in that type of mood. Give Popeska some love and like him on Facebook!

I’m not sure if it’s fair to call Teknian an up and comer anymore because this fellow Swede has produced a large enough amount of total bangers at this point that he’s very much established as a fenomenal producer. This free download is a great testament of his skills. His style feels to me like an old-school twist on a mixture between Noisia, Culprate and Koan Sound for a lack of a better description. The soundscapes definitely speak to some of the former artists and so do some of the basslines. Enjoy.

Zeds Dead first popped up on the world scene because of their amazing remixes and still today I categorize them as one of the absolute best remix outfits in bass music. Their musicality is of such a high grade that they actually manage to add something to the music they remix rather than either detract from it or just create something completely incoherent and detached. A great example of that is their remix entitled “Coffee Break” which samples Aretha Franklins classic “I Say a Little Prayer”. Just wonderful and if you haven’t yet checked it out then do – it – now.

 

Their new remix of canadian musician Colin Munroes “The Fight of my Life” was released yesterday and is available on iTunes.

Nero just released this little pearl as a celebration of their 1 millionth fan on Facebook. If you ignore the ridiculous pitch on Yo-Landi Vi$$er (the girl) the track itself is really fucking juicy and hits you with that massive bass.

Hey guys, so i was just browsing the interweb when I stumbled upon an artist called Viktor. It just so happened that Viktor had recently released an EP that I liked very much, and here we are.
 
In all seriousness, this EP is fucking dope and Viktor seems to be a fairly unknown artist. So go support the shit out of him now, cause he deserves it.

So after having posted the live video from our F.O.O.L & Antichrist Art of Noize event in Malmö, it is now time to share with you our interview with the boys in F.O.O.L. We had a short and pretty drunken chat with them about a bunch of different things ranging from some of the music they’ve been inspired by to South Korean call girls (Yeah don’t ask, you’ll get it when you watch the video). Our Norweigan buddies from Antichrist were in the room as well which you will notice from the intro, but their interview will come up in a separate video soon. Enjoy and if you haven’t seen the live video yet make sure you do so below.

 

Fun Fact: This is F.O.O.L’s first ever video interview. BLAM!

The new Noisia Ep is now finally out! I am not usually into DnB but with Noisia I will make an exception cause their sounds are so fresh and deep. Eight new tracks are featured on this new EP and I will post my favorite three in this post.

If you like what you hear go download the rest of the EP at noisia.nl(The site is slow as fuck at the moment so it might take some time to load it).
