- Nocturnal Admissions: Boys Noize (5/25/10)
Alexander Ridha won’t compromise. The German producer/DJ known as Boys Noise knows what he’s doing and is ready to educate Vegas on his brand of electronic music. Even though he’s collaborated with Snoop Dogg, The Scissor Sisters, Depeche Mode and the Black Eyed Peas, don’t dare come up to the booth and ask for something like a remix of Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.” this Memorial Day Weekend. If his set is anything like the one the Weekly caught at the Hard Pool Party in Miami during the Winter Music Conference, be prepared for some sick-ass sounds to write home about.
“I’ve been DJing for 12 years, and I think the most important thing about being a good DJ is having a feeling for the moment,” says Ridha. “So if I play daytime at a pool, I’ll probably play more sort of a pool set, but still, it’s going to be my stuff, like some more old school jackin' house, some techno, and stuff like that.”
In this podcast, Boys Noize takes us on a virtual tour of his recent album Power and shares how the decline of vinyl is breaking his heart. He also talks about his work on a contemporary piano album and why he might like a future running a farm in the Nocturnal Admissions podcast downloadable for free here.
