After we broke the news that Boys Noize will be in South Africa later this year for Rocking the Daisies, we’re also going to be the first to let you know that Boyz Noize will be joining the likes of UK indie sensations, alt-J, at this year’s Vodacom In The City on 4 October.
Making music for over half his lifetime, Alex Ridha, well-known to the world of electronic music as Boys Noize , has graced some of the world’s biggest stages performing alongside huge industry names. Boys Noize has also cemented his place in Rolling Stone’s Top 10 ‘DJ’s Who Rule the Earth’ as well as a winning Beatport’s ‘Best Electronic Act’ three consecutive years.
An undying work ethic and motivation to take electronic music to the next level on a global scale, Boys Noize has remixed and produced the biggest names in the global music world including Depeche Mode, Daft Punk, Feist, Santigold, Scissor Sisters, Snoop Dogg and Skrilliex. We’re over the moon and I’m sure everyone else in Jozi is as well. This is what he had to say ahead of SA getting the chance to see the maestro perform live:
“I really wanted to give people a concert where I perform my music only. It is not that I don’t like DJing anymore; I’m a DJ to the bone and will always be, but playing my tracks live and putting on a completely new show was something I wanted to do for a long time. It’s different, it’s fresh and that it’s what I love.”
See alt-Jay and Boys Noize at Vodacom In The City at Mary Fitzgerald Square on 4 October 2013. Keep an eye out for the next international act, which will be announced soon!
