BOYS NOIZE – YEAH (Progressive/House/Club – Germany)

Alexander Ridha (aka Boys Noize) is a German electro-tech producer and DJ. Based in Berlin since 2003, Boys Noize has released records on French label Kitsuné, Tiga’s Turbo Recordings label, and DJ Hell’s International Deejay Gigolos. In 2005, Ridha set up his own label, Boys Noize Records, to release his tracks and promote the work of other artists such as Chilly Gonzales, Housemeister or Bart B More.

To celebrate the 50th BNR release, Boys Noize recently put out the Yeah / 1010 EP. Unlike most orginal Boys Noize tracks released recently, which tend to be heavy and very dancefloor-oriented, “Yeah” is a very happy and upbeat piece of house music. Listen to this synth-filled club anthem just below!
