European techno often carries a benign and effete stigma, but musical prodigy and entrepreneur Alex Ridha , or BOYS NOIZE to you, presents dense and blisteringly percussive motifs that are meant to stimulate the mind and dancing shoe. Bolstered by his training as a pianist and percussionist, Boys Noize has broken from the confines of Berlin electro and has rapidly burst onto the international scene with his underground club appeal and his flair for the remix, not to mention the love he’s receiving from other mix virtuosos like Erol Alkan and A-Trak as they mine his tracks in tribute. His new album Power is out today, with the lead-off single “Starter” trailblazing the internet and driving beat junkies to any dancefloor he touches.

The student of Berlin electro cult figure D.I.M., Ridha was a mere 24 years old when his first LP Oi Oi Oi saw worldwide release in 2007. His timing could not have been better, as his remixes for Bloc Party’s “Banquet” and Kaiser Chiefs “Every Day I Love You Less and Less” were winning over the most influential club DJ’s with internet access. Aside from his own Boysnoize record lable, his material has been published by DJ Hell’s Deejay Gigolos label, Tiga’s Turbo Recordings label and Kitsun├ę Music. His track “& Down” was featured in the Grand Theft Auto IV (which set record debut sales). He has traded off remixes with other composer/mixers including SebastiAn, Justice and Surkin to name a few. As Tiga puts it, “For most of the past 2 years, Boys Noize records have saved by life as a DJ.”

On Halloween 2009, Boys Noize will be summoning the most unholy of spirits via Santos Party House’s massive soundsystem, wringing all the energy he can out of every woofer and tweeter. Joining him will be FIXED party architects JDH and Dave P who consistently satisfy the most discerning of electro fiends. Your best bet is to dress up as someone who can rock.
