6 Boys Noize Tracks You Should Hear
Dennis Ignatov Boys Noize plays the Monarch Theatre on Wednesday, May 7.
Boys Noize performs at Monarch Theatre in Phoenix on Wednesday, May 7. The electro producer and founder of Boys Noize Records is an authority in the electro music scene on a global scale, and was shaping the American electro scene long before anyone was doing the Dada.
Boys Noize, aka. Alexander Ridha, is a German producer whose music you can't really stereotype. While it's definitely electro, he never quite stays with the same formula. Some of his tracks are more melodic, while others are intense and choppy, pulling sounds from techno and industrial. You definitely know a Boys Noize track when you hear one.
If you're on the fence about going to the show on a weeknight, these songs will help you convince yourself that it's a responsible decision. Or, if you're already going, add these Boys Noize classic tracks to your pregame playlist.
"Jeffer" is a popping electro track with an addictive melody that's often associated with the Youtube video of the hipster with some serious dancing skills grooving for the camera in what looks like a 70s style basement.
"Swoon" Remix (2010)
Boys Noize took the already good romantic, progressive track "Swoon" by the Chemical Brothers and made it his own. The original version is soft and melodic, which seemed like a stretch for a DJ known for his raw, gritty style of electro. Boys Noize kept everything we liked about "Swoon," and elevated the track with an electro bounce.
