Alex Ridha, AKA Boys Noize releases the club-ready first installment of the two part MAYDAY REMIXES EPs today. The studio album MAYDAY gave us Boys Noize taking his raw, aggressive production to new levels of musicality – true songs instead of club tools.
The MAYDAY REMIXES brings us right back to the basement, as he’s never one to stray too far from his roots. Nearly every track from the album is reworked on PT 1 by Boys Noize with the club and DJ in mind.
“Overthrow” gets an absolutely jacking acid overdub, “Mayday” is tweaked for maximum dancefloor effect, “Dynamite” gets a Benga dub, “2 Live” ft T.E.E.D. morphs into sonically rich disco, “Euphoria” with Remy Banks gets a hard percussive techno overhaul, and fans finally get the epic live reprise mix of “Starchild” heard in Boys Noize’s sets across the world last year. To end the first EP – Rockwell – of course – gives us an utterly mad “Birthday” (w/ Hudson Mohawk and Spank Rock) remix.
Boys Noize is currently on a string of European and Australian headline Warehaus Tour dates to play major warehouse spots in cities like Paris (March 4), Amsterdam (March 11), Berlin (April 1), Australia (April) and back to Europe (May) where he will lay down his signature sounds on the intimate and raw dance floors.
