Boysnoize Records (BNR) was founded by Boys Noize aka Alex Ridha in the year 2005. Launched by Ridha in order to retain his full artistic freedom while releasing his own music under Boys Noize as well as under different monikers (Puzique, Einzeller, Eastwest) BNR became a home for multidirectional quality electronic music.
Alex Ridha – better known to the world as BOYS NOIZE – has been making electronic music and working as a DJ for over half of his life. He established himself as one of the world’s preeminent wizards behind the decks, having played the world’s biggest stages alongside the biggest names in dance music.
His sets are equally uplifting, not only technically but also as a showman, leaving unforgettable experiences for the witnesses. One of the reasons why the Rolling Stone voted Boys Noize amongst the Top10 `DJs Who Rule The Earth ` in 2012.
Ridha is also the heart of Boysnoize Records, the label that he started back in 2005. Founded originally as a means to get his own music out into the world, Boysnoize Rec. —and it’s sub-label, BNR Trax—is now home to more than a dozen artists (including up-and-come rs like 18 – year old SCNTST, Le1f , Spank Rock , Strip Steve, Peaches and Siriusmo) and responsible for over 100 releases while remaining fully independent.
Despite his ever-expanding label roster and the increased demand for his time as a producer and remixer, Ridha’s primary loves continue to be the twin pursuits of making and performing music.
The Berlin-based anarchist collective are now celebrating 50 deafeningly successful releases incl. albums from high-ranked artists Siriusmo, Housemeister, Shadow Dancer, EPs from Djedjotronic, Strip Steve and D.I.M., as well as BNR VOL.1 - a Best Of double disc journey through 4 Years of scorching music - and of course Boys Noize's debut "Oi Oi Oi" (2007) and "Power" (2009). In September 2010 BNR celebrated the 50th release as well as the launch of the first digital sublabel BNR Trax.
