When Boys Noize puts on a record people listen. The longtime German DJ, real name Alex Ridha, has performed and collaborated with everyone from Skrillex to Snoop Dogg to Oliver Stone (for the Oscar director’s Snowden biopic) over a stellar career that keeps on going.
Fresh off sharing the stage with Bon Iver and the National in Berlin, Boys Noize just released the Midnight remix EP with new work from Audion (Matthew Dear), Handbraekes (Mr Oizo + Boys Noize) and Addison Groove. You can listen/share the EP on Spotify or Soundcloud.
Crave caught up with Boys Noize in the middle of a North American live tour which makes a stop at Sound on Sound Fest this weekend (Nov. 4-6) to curate an exclusive playlist for your listening pleasure in case you can’t make it out to McDade, Texas.
