German producer Alex Ridha, AKA Boys Noize, is riding high off of his recent North American tour. The music trailblazer keeps the momentum going with the release of his new music video for song “2LIVE” featuring T.E.E.D. from his 4th studio album Mayday.
Along with a new music video, Boys Noize also announces a string of European headline tour dates. The Boys Noize Warehaus Tour 2017 features some major warehaus spots in cities like London on February 11 and Glasgow’s Sub Club on February 12, Paris on March 4th and and Berlin on March 31st for instance.
The video for the explosive song is directed by LIL INTERNET AND SUSBOY and follows a young couple as they run through the outskirts of Mexico City together. Exploring the complex and euphoric facets of being in love, the music video captures what happens when young love is combined with technology — a virtual reality love affair, if you will.
October was an extremely busy month for the German producer all while he toured North-America:
He released of a Midnight Remixes EP which includes the techno-centric rendition of Audion (aka Matthew Dear), a hybrid sound of dub and techno by Addison Groove, and a stellar raw mix by Alex Ridha and his buddy Mr. Oizo under their Handbraekes moniker.
His Oliver Stone collaboration of the music video for “Mayday” for the theater movie Snowden came to light. The remarkable, much talked about site 4Chan uniquely premiere the video on their 404 Error page.
After a full week of rehearsals (see here), Boys Noize collaborated with Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, Marijuana Deathsquads and The National’s Dessner brothers in Berlin for the 2 night event at the start of October.
Boysnoize Records have released two stunning Depeche Mode remixes from last year’s highly acclaimed ‘Delta Machine.’ ‘My Little Universe’ and ‘Alone’ receive the deluxe remix treatment they deserve, with Alex Ridha aka Boys Noize himself working his magic on the former and fellow BNR buddy Djedjotronic completing the stellar line up with a with a suitably dark and brooding, techno affair.
‘Delta Machine’ is the English band’s 13th studio album and was released by Columbia and Mute Records in March 2013. The record marked the end of a trilogy of records produced by acclaimed producer Ben Hillier and is considered by many as their most powerful, gothic, twisted, electronic album since ‘Violator.’ The release of the remixes continues Ridha’s musical relationship with the band, his space age version of ‘Personal Jesus’ having featured on ‘Boys Noize – The Remixes’ back in 2011.
It has been a busy past year for Alex Ridha aka Boys Noize, touring the world extensively and releasing an EP as Dog Blood and ‘Out of The Black – The Remixes’ that saw Justice, The Chemical Brothers, Blood Diamond, Jimmy Edgar and more re-calibrate some of his own techno patterns. With the announcement of another world tour this year, and a string of further releases from his BNR blueprint, the Boys Noize machine is prolific as ever.
French born and Berlin-based label mate Jérémy Cottereau aka Djedjotronic has been equally busy over the past few years. Since the release of his fifth record ‘Walk With Me’ in 2012 on BNR he has charted at number 1 onbeatport with analog bomb ‘Uranus’ and remixed Gonzales, UNKLE, Tiga, Etienne De Crecy, Chromeo and MissKittin to name a few – his trademark insane techno sound with pumping computer beats, instantly recognisable.
