Time to make some Noize and who better than Alex Ridha to press the button? Ridha, the man behind Boys Noize, has proven to be a very successful operator when it comes to tough, infectious, dancefloor-friendly electro, house and techno.
As a DJ, producer, remixer and artist (he has released three albums to date, including the current Out of the Black), Ridha has been very much to the forefront in pushing a singular musical vision. Releases on such labels as International Deejay Gigolo, Kitsune, Turbo and his own Boysnoize have established Ridha’s credentials as someone who knows how to tweak and turn a cut to rock a club.
Meanwhile, there’s also been a long line of collaborators joining him in the studio, including Chilly Gonzales (Ridha worked on the Canadian’s Ivory Tower album), Erol Alkan and, most recently, Skrillex for the Dog Blood hook-up.
