Earlier, on October 6th Boys Noize will play his first live performance in Berlin, at the start of an extensive 25-city European live tour.Boys Noize first single in about 3 years, "XTC" and the MMM Remix, of his third album Out Of The Black is released now.  The new album is to be released on October 2nd worldwide via his own label Boysnoize Records. Complex Magazine premiered "XTC" last week and called it "ridiculously catchy".  The first rousing album track “What You Want” was revealed by Rolling Stone (SoundCloud HERE). Alex Ridha - aka Boys Noize - is a Berlin-based producer, DJ and label owner who started producing and DJing at a very early age and is known internationally as a one of the most valued electronic artists (Independent Music Award in 2010 and 3 consecutive times Best Electronic Artist on Beatport).   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. Alex Ridha is at the heart of Boysnoize Records and BNR Trax that involves a roster of over 100 releases by more than a dozen different artists (Spank Rock, The Faint, Mixhell, Strip Steve, Housemeister and 17-year old SCNTST etc). Along releasing two long players Oi Oi Oi and POWER with contemporary anthems "&Down," "Don't Believe The Hype" and "Jeffer" he's had numerous releases with Mr. Oizo (aka Handbraekes), Erol Alkan, Jarvis Cocker and more. Boys Noize has been on the forefront of remixing indie artists like Feist’s “My Moon, My Man,” long before it was a custom to remix non-dance tracks. Other remixes range from the likes of David LynchN.E.R.D, Depeche ModeSnoop DoggDaft Punk, The Chemical Brothers to name a few. Having worked with Scissor Sisters, Gonzales, Spank RockSantigold and Kelis, the highly sought after producer, is ready to show the world his best work to date. Boys Noize Live (*) and DJ Dates:   8/31 – Las Vegas, NV (USA) @ Haze9/01 – Mexico City (MEX) @ Auditorio Blackberry9/02 – New York, NY (USA) @ Electric Zoo Festival10/06 – Berlin (GER) @ Columbiahalle *10/09 – Glasgow (UK) @ O2 ABC *10/11 – Dublin (IRL) @ Academy *10/12 – Manchester (UK) @ TBA *10/13 – London (UK) @ Coronet *10/17 – Zurich (CH) @ Maag Halle *10/18 – Geneva (CH) @ Salle des Fetes de Thonex *10/19 – Lille (FR) @ Fantastic Festival *10/20 – Nantes (FR) @ Stereolux *10/23 – Oslo (N) @ Rockefeller *10/24 – Stockholm (SWE) @ Arenan *10/25 – Copenhagen (DK) @ Vega *10 /27– Vienna (AUSTRIA) @ Gasometer *10/28 – Bologna (IT) @ Link *10/31 – Milan (IT) @ Limelight *11/01 – Lyon (FR) @ La Sucriere *11/02 – Paris (FR) @ La Cigale *11/03 – Toulouse (FR) @ Le Bikini *11/04 – Nimes (FR) @ Paloma *11/08 – Madrid (SP) @ Arena *11/13 – Amsterdam (NL) @ Paradiso *11/14 – Cologne (GER) @ E-Werk *11/15 – Hamburg (GER) @ Docks *11/17 – Munich (GER) @ Kesselhaus *11/23 - Fort Lauderdale, FL (USA) @ Revolution *11/24 – Orlando, FL (USA) @ House of Blues *11/28 – Washington, DC (USA) @ Fillmore *11/30 - New York, NY (USA) @ Roseland Ballroom *
