Boys Noize "What You Want" + Out Of The Black on 10/2
"This particular track was inspired by the vibes I get from the Beastie Boys, for instance," Ridha told Rolling Stone. "Their Licensed to Ill album is one of my all-time favorite records, and to me 'What You Want' has some sort of B-boy style mixed with my obsession on robot vocals and modern sound aesthetics. This song combines a lot of things I love about electronic music."
Boys Noize will play America here (more dates below):
8/03 – Los Angeles, CA @ HARD Festival
8/31 – Las Vegas, NV @ Haze
9/02 – New York, NY @ Electric Zoo Festival
Boys Noize announces his third album Out Of The Black to be released on October 2nd worldwide via his own label Boysnoize Records. Alex Ridha, the Berlin-based producer, DJ and label owner who started producing and DJing at a very early age. The new album perfectly bridges the gap between his previous two efforts Oi Oi Oi and POWER; providing the requisite in-your-face electro bang of classic Boys Noize on tracks like “What You Want”,“Rocky 2” and “XTC”, or more melodic songs like "Ich R U“ and“Reality“. At a time when mainstream electronic music—particularly the pervasive cultures of EDM and dubstep—have moved dance music out of the clubs and into the stadiums, Ridha is quick to acknowledge the old school house and acid records that shaped him as a DJ; the very same records that continue to bubble up as an influence on Out Of The Black.
Boys Noize is proud to bring a full live show to the stage for the first time on October 6th in Berlin, the start of an extensive 25-city European live tour (dates below + more to be announced soon).

Shakeyface and Champain Era are excited to present the Champface EP, a little record with a huge sound. Brooklyn-based electronic and hip hop producer Shakeyface teamed up with go-go influenced rapper Champain Era of Virginia Beach to create songs straddling dance music and hip hop with great success. The record represents a departure for both parties into an entirely new sound.
Sonically the beats incorporate elements of house, bassline, electro, hip hop and more to create a far reaching composition. Meanwhile Champain Era's lyrics are chopped, twisted and put through the grinder. Champain Era's rapping style is uniquely positive in an often dark genre; "I want to give people inspiration through these rough times," he says. "I think people should celebrate because a good time is coming. Keep your head up. No matter what you're going through, it's not permanent."
Shakeyface's solo work includes the Bicycle Day Boogaloo album, hailed by XLR8R as "Ambitious, forward-thinking, and undeniably talented...contains the first brushstrokes of a brilliant musical portrait."; while URB calls Shakeyface "one to look out for". Champain Era most recently released The New Year's Eve Champain Collection mixtape. Hip Hop Update co-signed the release, saying Champain is "back on the grind...check this out".
