Inspired by Housemeister‘s incredible third release, Music is Awesome, three greats have created their own versions of some of the albums best dance floor tracks. That’s right; Zombie Nation, Djedjotronic and SCNTST have all remixed their favorite tracks off of Music is Awesome and put together the stellar results for this EP. Each artist delivers their own unique blend of sounds; from experimentally abstract synth play to familiar rolling basslines.
Shadow Dancer is back with their 6th Boysnoize Records‘ release, Second City. The new EP is a experimentally delicious blend of Techno and Electro that packs a punch. However, Second City isn’t just an EP full of dance floor bangers, it also showcases the duo’s enviable synthesis talents as well as their ability to put together a full, well-rounded release.
The dynamic duo of Erol Alkan and Boys Noize has never once disappointed. From their first collaboration in 2009, Waves/Death Suite, to their undeniably massive Avalanche/Lemonade EP, Erol and Alex always find a strong sense of synergy in the studio. This April, the two heavyweights have come together once again to release a new 2 track EP on Boys Noize Records, produced using only analog instruments (respect). ‘Roland Rat’ and ‘Brain Storm’ will hit Beatport on Monday, April 2nd and can be picked up on vinyl April 9th.

The latest EP from the legendary DJ Pierre is slow burning, bassy, deep and of course, an acidic masterpiece. With his newest release, Acid/ Jack Da Groove, DJ Pierre has taken us back to that beautiful squelchy sound that was a staple of the Acid House recordings in the 80′s and 90′s. If you are a fan of the recent Acid House resurgence then I highly recommend you pick up this EP, you won’t be disappointed.
It had been a just a few short days since Alex Ridha, the dark techno overlord better known as Boys Noize, had completed a monumental two night stand at the now sadly and inexplicably dormant Music Box in Hollywood (soon to be reopened once again as The Henry Fonda). Yet it was midweek, a Tuesday, and the children still wanted their techno.
In a more intimate setting than the previous two gigs, and in a part of town regarded for being a bit more accepting of doing something different, Boys Noize laid down one of the most eclectic and exhilarating sets I’ve ever seen him perform.
Above you can capture a 37+ minute snippet of the madness, and after the jump a conversation with him and legendary producer/DJ Switch, who also threw down that night. If you’re not familiar with the Check Yo Ponytail! crew who put on the show, get familiar.
After an excellent first couple of months in 2012, things keep on improving at the premier Las Vegas nightclub, HAZE. The month of March is full of great events with lineups comprised of world renowned artists such as Fernando Garibay, Laidback Luke, Boys Noize, Dave Aude, & Bob Sinclair. Next week, Laidback Luke will be making his return after a massive show over NYE weekend. He’s expected to bring his usual veteran DJ-ing prowess, as well as his high level of showmanship, so we recommend you grab tickets now rather than face the possibility of regret. Check out a video from Laidback’s last visit & pictures from previous events after the jump!
The legendary master of the decks, DJ Sneak, is lending his talents to the newest Fabriclive mix. This mix has something for everyone, Sneak’s meticulous track selection gives us a plethora of music styles from Chicago House gems to dark and popping techno. If that’s not enough to sell you, DJ Sneak had this to say about this recent mix, “I am very proud, excited and confident this mix will entertain for many years to come… As long as I’m alive, house music is not dead!”
