Following the exciting announcement that UK indie sensations, alt-J, will be performing at this year’s Vodacom In The City on 4 October, the word on Twitter, online radio and other social media platforms is: ‘will the next international act be a band or a DJ?’
In response, Vodacom In The City is proud to announce that award-winning DJ, Boys Noize, has been added to the growing international line up at this year’s event.
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 such as Depeche Mode, Draft Punk, Feist, Santigold, Scissor Sisters, Snoop Dogg and Skrilliex and is known for his innovative sound.
Promising an explosive and electrifying performance, Boys Noize will be setting the decks on fire at the upcoming Bonnaroo, Rock AM Ring and Rock Werchter festivals before treating fans at this year’s Vodacom In The City.
Despite non-stop touring, his ever-expanding label roster and the increased demand for his time as a producer and remixer, Ridhaʼs primary loves continue to be the twin pursuits of making and performing music. Following the release of his third long-player Out Of the Black in late 2012, he presented the first Boys Noize 'Live' show to the masses.
“I really wanted to give people a concert where I perform my music only. It ́s 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!
