Boys Noize x Black Eyed Peas

Alexander Ridha aka Boys Noize is blowing up. Since releasing "Oi Oi Oi" in 2007, Boys Noize has established his place as one of the most sought after remixers. Recently, he collaborated with will.i.am on the official Black Eyed Peas Boom Boom Pow Megamix EP, and his remix of Gonzales' Working Together was featured on the A-Trak album Infinity +1


Usually I wouldn't touch the Black Eyed Peas (or the featured 50 Cent) with a 10 foot pole, let alone post about them in the debut entry, but this track is an anomaly. On Let the Beat Rock, Boys Noize took a page directly from the Ratatat playbook and made a killer banger by cutting up pop rap and mixing in a healthy serving of electro dance vibes.

Currently Boys Noize is on the road in Europe playing both clubs and festivals, but rest assured he has not forgotten the US summer festival circuit. He will be performing at the Electric Daisy Carnival (LA), Central Park SummerStage (NYC), and Lollapalooza (CHI).

For a complete tour listing, head over to the obligatory myspace.
