On February 3rd, Alex Ridha AKA Boys Noize will release Out Of The Black – The Remixes, a stunning collection of remixes from the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Justice and Chromeo and unreleased remixes from Audion (Matthew Dear,) Oliver, Jimmy Edgar and MMM to name a few.
The album also features the Blood Diamonds remix of ‘Got It,’ the Snoop Dogg collaboration first performed at Ultra Music Festival in Miami (view live concert footage HERE.) The video of the original, featuring the legendary rapper himself, will be released in January.
In the past year and with his signature SKULL in tow, Boys Noize has toured Europe, the US, Asia, Australia and South Africa as well as releasing theGO HARD EP in June. He also found time to team up with Skrillex to form Dog Blood, releasing 2 EP’s (Middle Finger Part II EP accessible HERE) andlighting up stages all over the world including Glastonbury, Coachella, Lollapalooza and Electric Zoo with an electrifying live show.
The remix album will be released on Boysnoize Records (BNR), a label founded in 2005 by Alex himself in order to retain full artistic freedom while releasing his own music under Boys Noize and other monikers. BNR quickly became a home for multidirectional and quality electronic music and the Berlin-based anarchist collective recently celebrated their landmark 100th release from a plethora of artists such as Spank Rock, Siriusmo, Housemeister, Strip Steve, SCNTST, Djedjotronic, Boody & Le1f, Peaches, UZ and of course the whole Boys Noize back catalogue of albums - debut ‘Oi Oi Oi’ (2007), follow up ‘POWER’ (2009) and latest full-length ‘Out of The Black’ (2012). In the last few months, Alex has also released his highly acclaimed FABRICLIVE 72 (stream HERE) and BNR’s ‘Boysnoize Present Dance Mania’ (stream HERE.)

‘Here are my favourite released & unreleased remixes from my Out Of The Black album – Enjoy!’ - Alex Ridha
‘My aim was to take the rise and fall of the original song, but engross it within a completely different system of layers and groove. It's as if the song did It’s thing at one club, grabbed It’s coat and went to another club across town to take on a new life.’ – Matthew Dear/Audion
‘This remix was really fun to work on, so much that I ended up doing two…. one that Alex used for his live show and is now coming out and the other for the single - really happy to be part of this. I wanted the remix to sound like a powerful cutting tool and coincidentally that’s what the vinyl looked like.’ Jimmy Edgar
'When I received the remix request, I knew what I wanted to do immediately - to bring the ‘clowns’ from dark to light, from rap to techno and ready for the dance floor circus!’ Housemeister
