Track Of The Day: Boys Noize - 'XTC (Chemical Brothers Remix)'

Alex Ridha is a German electro producer and DJ, better known as Boys Noize. On Feb 3rd, he released 'Out Of The Black – The Remixes', featuring reworkings of tracks from his 2012 LP 'Out Of The Black'. After telling my friend dance music enthusiast Jason B that I had received news about this release, he recommended that I check it out. Glad I did. After Ridha remixed The Chemical Brothers 2010 track 'Swoon', the Chems have returned the compliment with their brilliant take on 'XTC', which sticks the track in a time machine and rethinks it at a late 80's warehouse party before taking it forwards to 2014 with some excellent production.

The remix album was released on Boysnoize Records (BNR), a label founded in 2005 by Alex himself in order to retain full artistic freedom while releasing his own music under Boys Noize and other monikers. BNR quickly became a home for multidirectional and quality electronic music and the Berlin-based anarchist collective recently celebrated their landmark 100th release.
