BOYS NOIZE, Alex Ridha explains the tracks via his Twitter: “STRICTLY RAW is
basically made with analogue machines for DJs that need some good raw
House & Techno tools. I’m releasing this to celebrate #BNR10YR cause
I started @boysnoizerecords to be independent, releasing my own music
and to have a platform for talented musicians & producers that try
to sound different! STRICTLY RAW is also my reaction to
the terribly generic edm mass market paying tribute to the very alive
"underground” sound that I love and support in my DJ-sets!“

Strictly Raw Vol 1 track by track comments:
"Paranoid” was part of an all nite session i did with ‘Johnny Sack’ before our@boilerroomtv b2b set. we wanted to have a full album to play.

“808 IRAQ” was the 3rd joint from my jams w @ciaotiga ! I was like you can have “100” & “Jam#1” for @turborecordings and i’ll keep iraq hehe.

“Overstayer” was
the 1st track i did w this new saturator/compress/eq/distort all in 1
rack i ran my drum machine through. basically 1 jam. those are my
favourite tracks sometimes. you program something on your machine,
record a session, edit it a bit. done. fun!

“Cerebral” was
another jam i did with the same drum machine and saturator, but more
than 1 audio file lol. the original idea was breakbeat and i gave the files to @piloofficial who added a 4/4 kick and this vocal snipped. i thought that was it. back at my studio i edited & mixed it.

“The Fix” is another more classic acid track, done with the original tb 303 & 707. basically a follow up to my other track “1010”

“Openn” is a live jam with @Atom_TM_news when
he also came to my studio. we originally started another track with a
bass sequence. Uwe programed the new 808 and i ran it through some
outside effect i cant remember. after that we thought the drums
themselves were enough.

“Spacer” is also pretty much a livejam @TEEDinosaurs and me did in my studio in LA. him on the synths & me on the drums. italo-disco-techno

“Dawnload” is my halftime hi-tec-core jam which has been out on my soundcloud for a little bit but it wasnt officially released yet…

“Brain Frequent” is
my take on the love i got for EBM/new Beat/wave and Industrial stuff.
it s pretty heavy i know…but dropped at the right time in the right
club this jams fucking fire! i’ve added my voice in the end of the track
“Brain Frequent Higher”.
