BOYS NOIZE (Alex Ridha) builds worlds, then builds bridges between them.
Circumnavigating the planet in a bulldozer, the nonconformist German-Iraqi artist, DJ, producer and label boss Alex Ridha set the path for the global electronic music explosion and defiantly drives it into new territories.

Propelled by an infatuation with sonic invention, BOYS NOIZE developed a peerless sound both distinctive and diverse. Bringing techno to the main stage and modular synths to the Billboard charts, his work flies in the face of convention, reaching into both past and future to change music today. Masterfully anarchic performances at festivals from Coachella to Glastonbury and every continent in between while still DJing yearly at techno mecca Berghain - few reach mass success while being embraced with the critical respect of the underground, and Ridha achieves this on his own terms.

The new decade begins with unprecedented momentum from BOYS NOIZE's expanding practice. Sessions with Lady Gaga, co-writing and producing Frank Ocean's return single 'DHL' and 'Babushka Boi' for A$AP Rocky, releasing the disco-drenched song 'Why Not' with Francis and the Lights and receiving a GRAMMY nomination for 'Midnight Hour' alongside Skrillex and Ty Dolla $ign, Ridha has asserted his place at the top behind the console and the decks. There's more, of course - collaborations with Bon Iver, Chance The Rapper, Snoop Dogg, Rico Nasty, Tommy Cash and Jarvis Cocker, working on Mark Ronson's 'Uptown Funk', remixing Daft Punk, N.E.R.D., Depeche Mode, Rammstein and David Lynch, composing the soundtrack and theme song for Oliver Stone's 'Snowden' film, and Virgil Abloh choosing BOYS NOIZE to collaborate on the designer's first ever music release - with an accompanying OFF-WHITE x BOYS NOIZE's MAYDAY capsule collection to match. Whether composing and performing live as OCTAVE MINDS with piano maestro Chilly Gonzales, crafting club hits with Skrillex as DOG BLOOD or DJing as his house pseudonym ELAX, BOYS NOIZE is unstoppable as he drives towards new forms of expression, fueling a creativity without limits.

Relentlessly supporting the music that shapes his life, Ridha also runs his own label, Boysnoize Records (BNR). Originally started to retain full artistic freedom with BOYS NOIZE's releases, BNR became a home for an exceptional and diverse roster of musicians, forming a league of its own while defying genre restraints. The Berlin-based "non-conformist DIY anarchist collective" (Dazed & Confused) is entering its 15th year, discovering, developing and distributing future-facing artists including SCNTST, Djedjotronic, NAEEM, Jensen Interceptor, Cardopusher, Dave Clarke, Peaches as well as releasing his ground-breaking debut album 'Oi Oi Oi' as well as all following BOYS NOIZE ́s full length LP's.
