Album Out Of The Black to be Released October 2nd on Boysnoize Records. First Ever Live Show on October 6th in Berlin
Boys Noize at LA’s HARD Festival 8/3 + NYC’s Electric Zoo Festival 9/2
Boys Noize announces his third album Out Of The Black to be released on October 2nd worldwide via his own label Boysnoize Records. The first rousing track from the album called “What You Want” can be heard now on Rolling Stone and below
Alex Ridha – aka Boys Noize – is a Berlin-based producer, DJ and label owner who started producing and DJing at a very early age and is known internationally as a one of the most valued electronic artists (Independent Music Award in 2010 and 3 consecutive times Best Electronic Artist on Beatport).
The new album perfectly bridges the gap between his previous two efforts Oi Oi Oi and POWER; providing the requisite in-your-face electro bang of classic Boys Noize on tracks like “What You Want”, “Rocky 2” and “XTC”, or more melodic songs like "Ich R U“ and “Reality“. At a time when mainstream electronic music, particularly the pervasive cultures of EDM and dubstep, have moved dance music out of the clubs and into the stadiums, Ridha is quick to acknowledge the old school house and acid records that shaped him as a DJ; the very same records that continue to bubble up as an influence on Out Of The Black.
Boys Noize is proud to bring a full live show to the stage for the first time on October 6th in Berlin, at the start of an extensive 25-city European live tour (dates below + more to be announced soon).
Alex Ridha is at the heart of Boysnoize Records and BNR Trax that involves a roster of over 100 releases by more than a dozen different artists (Spank Rock, The Faint, Mixhell, Strip Steve, Le1f, Housemeister and17-year old SCNTST etc). Along releasing two long players Oi Oi Oi and POWER with contemporary anthems "&Down," "Don’t Believe The Hype" and "Jeffer" he’s had numerous releases with Mr. Oizo (aka Handbraekes), Erol Alkan, Jarvis Cocker and more.
Boys Noize has been on the forefront of remixing indie artists like Feist’s “My Moon, My Man,” long before it was a custom to remix non-dance tracks. Other remixes range from the likes of David Lynch, N.E.R.D, Depeche Mode, Snoop Dogg, Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers to name a few. Having worked with Scissor Sisters, Gonzales, Spank Rock, Santigold and Kelis, the highly sought after producer, is ready to show the world his best work to date.
