He’s the techno punk, the unboxable nomad: Alex Ridha, better known as BOYS NOIZE, made his DJ debut at the age of 15, taking a teenager´s love of house and techno to a global scale. Accolades have been bestowed by Rolling Stone, who named him one of the “Top 10 DJ’s Who Rule The World” and Beatport, who elected him “Best Electronic Act” 3 years in a row. He´s rocked the world’s biggest stages, lit up Coachella three times, took Lollapalooza by storm, and headlined festivals and clubs on every continent – from Berlin techno temple Berghain to Fuji Rock in Japan to Justin Vernon’s Eaux Claires Festival in the woods of Wisconsin.

As an artist and producer, Ridha has created a sound and a vision that’s peerless, uncompromising, and enduring – respected in the scene, banging from underground to mainstream, it flies in the face of convention at every turn. As a recording artist and producer, Ridha has created his own sound, and pioneered his own brand, amassing a formidable body of work in the process. He has released three albums (2007’s “Oi Oi Oi” , 2009’s “Power” and 2012´s “Out Of The Black”) and countless singles as BOYS NOIZE.

He has also remixed Depeche Mode, Daft Punk, David Lynch, Feist and Nine Inch Nails, collaborated with Snoop Dogg, Erol Alkan, and Jarvis Cocker, worked on Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Special” and most recently on the soundtrack for upcoming Oliver Stone’s Snowden, and released group projects with genius pianist Chilly Gonzales (Octave Minds), Skrillex (Dog Blood), and Mr. Oizo (Handbraekes). The list of names alone speak volumes about Ridha’s multifaceted approach.

Ridha is also the heart of Boysnoize Records, the label that he started back in 2005. Founded originally as a means to get his own music out into the world, Boysnoize Rec. —and it’s sub-label, BNR Trax—is now home to more than a dozen artists (including SCNTST, Spank Rock, Strip Steve, Djedjotronic and Housemeister) and responsible for over 100 releases while remaining fully independent.

“I don´t compromise when it comes to music,” says Ridha. “I do what I think is cool and what I like and not what the market wants or people may expect. Maintaining artistic freedom has always been the most important thing to me — for my own music and for anyone on my label”

Despite his ever-expanding label roster and the increased demand for his time as a producer and remixer, Ridha’s primary loves continue to be the twin pursuits of making and performing music.
Following the release of his third long-player “Out Of The Black” in late 2012, he presented the first BOYS NOIZE ‘LIVE’ show to the masses. “I really wanted to give people a concert where I perform my music only. It´s not that I don´t like DJing anymore, I´m a DJ to the bone and will always be. But playing my tracks live and putting on a completely new show was something I wanted to do for a long time. It´s different and fresh and that is what I love.”

In 2016 BOYS NOIZE is back with his 4th album MAYDAY, his most dynamic release to date. Infectiously energetic, fusing the energy and spirit of punk with the raw power of modern techno and the early days of rave, MAYDAY exists as a new expression entirely, transporting the innocence of a bygone era into the here and now without ever sounding anachronistic or nostalgic.

    I love reading the stories behind Boys Noize and the way everything just came together. Your skills are trulyinspirational and I’m gonna use this and every song your label has produced and venture into djing. Thanks for being a world class artist that continues to push the bar and make dreams of one day being as big as you possible.

    Boys Noize is my favorite artist of ALL music genres. Your music is fresh, the sounds are amazing, you go to where other artists have never ventured, and you make the music that we want to hear (not a sell-out). Also, from what I have seen and heard, you are good to your fans and haven’t become a prick with growing fame. Boys Noize is hands down the best artist in my opinion!!!
