Boys Noize Announce New North American Tour Dates “+/- (Polarity)”

BOYS NOIZE, German-Iraqi GRAMMY winner Alex Ridha, announces a second North American leg of his +/- (POLARITY) TOUR 2022.

This time, it starts in Montreal on September 11 at Piknic Électronik, and will go through Dallas, Houston, Seattle, Portland and descend through San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego before heading to Atlanta and ending in New York on October 8. . Earlier this summer, Bosnian-German DJ SOLOMUN remixed “Affection” ft ABRA and last week BOYS NOIZE returned the favor by remixing SOLOMUN’s “Home”.

The collective volume and diversity of BOYS NOIZE has made it in high demand by artists looking for its proprietary sonic techniques and peerless production. Berlin’s world-renowned underground culture acts as a beacon for international stars who are ready to plumb the margins of innovation and the unusual, and it’s BOYS NOIZE’s studio where their new inspirations are transmuted into a even fresher music thanks to his expertise.

Over the years, working relationships have blossomed and production credits have multiplied, including with such luminaries as LADY GAGA, FRANK OCEAN, A$AP ROCKY, BON IVER, MARK RONSON and FRANCIS & THE LIGHTS. And as an unparalleled remixer, BOYS NOIZE has been enlisted by DEPECHE MODE, RAMMSTEIN, DAFT PUNK and DAVID LYNCH, adding his signature work to artistic royalty.

Even as he personally takes on an underdog role, BOYS NOIZE finds his influence penetrating to the center: 2020 was marked by a GRAMMY nomination for his collaboration with SKRILLEX and TY DOLLA $IGN “Midnight Hour” – an unlikely mix of R&B late-night music, oldskool rave and hard house – while 2021 brought a GRAMMY win for LADY GAGA’s “Rain on Me”, feat. ARIANA GRANDE.

BOYS NOIZE’s +/- encapsulates a distillation of his career to date in waveform form, where valleys of underground techno, industrial and jacking house morph into peaks of artist-led collaborations. stars. Underpinned by the thumping rhythms of the club addict and blanketed in deep, immersive textures, the songs, while rich, possess a biting middle ground, even the most melodic moments of +/- bare the sharp teeth of synthesis and modular treatment of BOYS NOIZE; a new breakthrough for the gear enthusiast.

Visual artist Eric Timothy Carlson, designer of BON IVER’s acclaimed 22 a Million, joined Alex in developing extensive artwork and iconography for the album and all of his individual works. The work offers an esoteric key of glyphs and symbols, mapping the contradictory influences and emotions that served as elements for a sonic alchemy.

Through image and sound, +/- examines the anything-is-possible production of a distinguished techno producer freed from all restraints, and the album is as much an evolution for the genre as it is for BOYS NOIZE itself. .
