More Info:

Boys Noize (Alex Ridha) starts the new decade with unprecedented momentum. Fresh off a 2020 Grammy nomination, the Berlin artist, DJ, and producer releases a double A-side reflecting a contrasting spectrum of modern techno. The grinding, hi-tech and low tempo industrial production of "Girl Crush" featuring Rico Nasty propels the ascendant rap icon into new territories of club disruption. "Buchla 100" reaches ecstasy with a recording of the rare, original, 1960's built Buchla 100 modular synth system as it breathes, morphs, and comes alive over tribal percussion. Achieving perpetual motion, Ridha's propulsion is fueled by recent collaborations with Lady Gaga and Virgil Abloh, two anonymous side projects plus a new moniker Elax, creating the Grammy nominated "Midnight Hour" with Skrillex and Ty Dolla $ign, producing both Frank Ocean's "DHL" and A$AP Rocky's "Babushka Boi" return singles and releasing the disco-drenched song "Why Not?" with Francis & The Lights. Behind the scenes, he teamed up with rap producer Kenny Beats for a grip of buzzing tracks, and joined Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and The National's Aaron Dressner for studio sessions and a performance at their eclectic 37d03d (People) Festival in Brooklyn. Boys Noize is leading the way as techno, house, and pure rave continues to electrify the music world.
