He’s the techno punk, the unboxable nomad: Berlin DJ and producer BOYS NOIZE will release his 4th solo album MAYDAY this Friday, May 20, 2016 via Boysnoize Records. Alex Ridha, better known as BOYS NOIZE, made his DJ debut at the age of 15, taking a teenager´s love of house and techno to a global scale. Accolades have been bestowed by Rolling Stone, who named him one of the “Top 10 DJ’s Who Rule The World” and Beatport, who elected him “Best Electronic Act” 3 years in a row. He´s rocked the world’s biggest stages, lit up Coachella three times, took Lollapalooza by storm, and headlined festivals and clubs on every continent – from Berlin techno temple Berghain to Fuji Rock in Japan to Justin Vernon’s Eaux Claires Festival in the woods of Wisconsin. MAYDAY, his most dynamic album to date. Infectiously energetic, fusing the energy and spirit of punk with the raw power of modern techno, MAYDAY transports the innocence of a bygone era into the here and now without ever sounding anachronistic or nostalgic. Collaborations with POLICA, HUDSON MOHAWKE, BENGA, REMY BANKS, SPANK ROCK, and some special secret guests broaden the range further than ever.


“I always try to challenge myself as a producer and a musician,” says Ridha. “Keeping the purity of electronic music but taking it somewhere new is the most difficult, and most motivating. MAYDAY is me taking the music I love to the future, no matter how uncertain the future seems.”


MAYDAY speaks for a generation that no longer gives a damn about boundaries. Walls are for breaking down. MAYDAY’s for tearing them to shreds.
