Boys Noize – FABRICLIVE 72

Boys Noize Announces FABRICLIVE 72: Boys Noize on Fabric Records
Out 11/18 (digital) and 11/26 (CD)
Pre-Order: HERE
Boys Noize Starts His American Tour October 17th in Denver (details below)

Boys Noize (Alex Ridha) is amongst an elite group of highly respected DJ/Producers to have earned legendary status. Whether producing monster tracks such as “Starwin”, playing to thousands of people around the world, remixing for the likes of David Lynch, Depeche Mode and Daft Punk, working with artists as varied as Skrillex, Snoop Dogg, Santigold and Chilly Gonzales, or as label boss of his own Boysnoize Records, it’s fair to say Boys Noize has never been in more demand or on better form than currently: now iced with the proverbial cherry by being next in line to mix the legendary FABRICLIVEseries. Working two jobs just to buy turntables and satisfy his insatiable appetite for buying house, disco and hip hop records from the age of 14 years old, Hamburg-born Alex Ridha played his first ever gig at the age of 16 and from there – by his own admittance – “everything went pretty crazy.” Happy to just make back the money he’d spent on vinyl, before long his productions were supported by the likes of 2manydjs, Erol Alkan and Laurent Garnier, releasing on Kitsune and Turbo before exclusively releasing on his own label (with Cocoon and Phantasy the only recent exceptions). Renowned as a fast-paced, party DJ, Boys Noize does not disappoint on his FABRICLIVE mix.

“Around 2006-2007 I played together with Justice & crew in Room 2 and I was very excited, because it was really a dream come true to play London’s famous fabric. I remember it was super dark: smoke, sweat and lasers and people everywhere. I thought the club was so massive. I had no orientation, I didn’t know where the exit was or anything.”- Boys Noize

FABRICLIVE 72 is a frenetic, fast-paced representation of a typical Boys Noize set, condensed into 70 pulsating, sweaty minutes. Not simply a melting pot of the newest tracks, but an education in crazy techno and hi-energy jackin’ house, it switches up between Boysnoize Records releases – Tracques ‘Motor’ – to Gesaffelstein’s ‘Aufstand’ and Four Tet’s ‘For These Times’ with timeless ease. Its upbeat, happy attitude is clearly in full swing with Ridha focusing on melody for the home listener. Featuring a demo version of new track ‘Anoid’ (a gnarly, industrial slice sewn bang into the middle of the mix), his collab with Skrillex under the Dog Blood moniker (the breakbeat-powered ‘Chella Ride’), and new edits of underground tracks by Aden, DJ Deeon and Anthony Naples, Boys Noize proves time and time again that he is a man fully in control of his craft.bn_londonfabric_2

“I really tried to sum up my two to three hour set in 70 minutes. My sets usually include many styles and at some points I mix pretty fast too. I play some jackin’ house and techno with crazy energy stuff and then go back to reduced dub or even classic electro or breaks. Mygoal was to combine all of the styles I play but also make it listenable. All in all I think this DJ mix is pretty timeless, colourful and happy.” – Boys Noize

Voyeur – Blame It On The Youth EP(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2012 by dk


Leeds based duo Voyeur spent early 2012 carving their name on the remix circuit, with reworks for Bombay Bicycle Club and Santigold gaining tastemaker support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Rob da Bank, Dummy and XLR8R.

Their first original output, due on 26th November via Kerri Chandler’s new MadTech imprint, is the sultry ‘Blame It On The Youth’, an 8-minute lo-slung epic. Perfect listening for the impending autumnal evenings, it fuses jazz chords and emotive vocal yelps with a genuine sonic weight, showcasing somewhat of a detachment from their previous Balearic offerings.

On the flipside comes an edit from Kerri Chandler himself, who, upon hearing the track, insisted on adding his own interpretation to the package. Retaining much of the original, Kerri displays a new side to his productions and creates a dance-floor ready cut that will surely become a staple in his future sets. The tribal bounce of ‘Get Up’ completes the digital bundle.

Having already supported Disclosure at their London EP launch and appeared at Dimensions and Gottwood festivals over the summer, Voyeur will support Submotion Orchestra this month, before playing their own EP launch party at The Nest in London on 10th November, featuring a special line-up curated by themselves which will be announced over the coming weeks. Following this, the duo will appear on the seminal Boiler Room on 22nd November.


Santigold – “The Keepers” (Official Video)

Posted in News with tags , on July 2, 2012 by dk

Today Santigold premiered the new video for her anthemic track “The Keepers” from her album Master of My Make-Believe (Downtown/Atlantic). In the video, Santigold is a member of the idyllic 1950s American family sitting down to dinner and smiling as the world falls apart around them and the present reality of the United States comes rushing in. The video was directed by Nabil and features cameos by GZA, Kick Kennedy, and Trevor Andrew.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on June 14, 2012 by dk

After releasing their debut double A side and touring up and down the country The Tricks have done their very own cover of Santigold’s hot new song Disparate Youth. Swapping the steel drums for their twangy guitars and Joel’s falsetto vocals, The Tricks have put their indie-pop stamp on this immense track to make it your sound of the summer.

The Tricks’ next single will be announced soon along with some more news to follow in the coming weeks.
