While Virgil Abloh has been the artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s men’s collection since March of this year, he blesses the people with some fine tunes for the summer. The fashion designer recently unleashed an hour-long DJ mix including everyone from DJ Koze and Pearson Sound to Cardi B and Drake.

The exclusive Solid Steel Radio Show mix was filmed in London. Abloh states, “Deejaying in London is always a great time because I like to create a contemporary dialogue with the audience but also root it in vast history of the many sub-genres that makes London super unique.”His first taste in music includes producing on Boys Noize‘s recent collaborative three-track EP titled Orvnge.

There has been no shortage of Skrillex rumors over the last year. The artist is almost at the level of Daft Punk in terms of producing for other artists while keeping fans in the dark about his personal productions. The main difference is that Skrillex is actually coming back. Not only has he played a

Boys Noize reveals first release as ELAX, ‘Reaktor’ on Solomun’s Diynamic imprint

Boys Noize reveals first release as ELAX, ‘Reaktor’ on Solomun’s Diynamic imprintBoys Noize Mayday Lil Internet

Boys Noize is shaking things up a bit, debuting an intriguing new project known as ELAX. Side-stepping his signature brand of warehouse-ready industrial techno, Alex Ridha’s new ELAX moniker bears an immediate resemblance to Boys Noize’s unmistakable production acumen, while leaning in its own, different tech-inspired direction. Furthermore, the project’s first release comes by way of Solomun‘s Diynamic imprint as part of the label’s Four on the Floor collection, as opposed to Ridha’s own venerated Boys Noize Records. On ELAX’s inaugural debut, “Reaktor,” Berlin’s genre-blurring mastermind makes starting from the ground up sound easy — but what else would one expect?

Pulsing synthwork and swinging percussion come together while textured electro rhythms hiss and buzz across the nearly seven-minute stomper. From menacing acid house takes with Dog Blood to lovably bizarre Handbraekes fare, Ridha’s always kept up a healthy repetoire of alternative outlets and ELAX is proving to be an exciting addition to Boys Noize already decorated career.

Boys Noize has spent his career blurring the lines between genres and jumping between a variety of scenes in the world of electronic music. Be it a collaboration with Snoop Dogg, his Dog Blood project with Skrillex, or his mind-bending acid and techno releases, Alex Ridha always finds a way to thrive in his environment. Adding another piece to his vast catalog, Diynamic Music has previewed “Reaktor,” the first track to come from ELAX, Ridha’s newest moniker.

The track pairs lively percussion with Boys Noize’s signature brash, full-bodied synths. Sitting somewhere between Gesaffelstein’s no-nonsense techno and Diynamic Music founder Solomun‘s vibrant production style, ELAX puts forth a new song with strong potential in the European techno scenes. While the full track has not yet been released, we can only imagine what a massive tune this one will turn out to be, what what Boys Noize has in store with his emerging new side project.

Minimal Effort has announced it will resurrect All Hallow’s Eve this year on October 28 at its newly confirmed venue, New York City’s Belasco Theatre. With a top-notch phase one lineup now underway, including Dirtybird‘s Christian Martin, German techno/house sensation, Tim Engelhardt, Worthy, Boys Noize, and many more, All Hallow’s Eve is poised to be among NYC’s premiere Halloween hotspots.

The 100+ year-old Belasco is the ideal setting for a spooky affair, and an distinguished, antique backdrop for the event’s new installments, such as a live candlelit performance from Rodriguez Jr. in the Mobilee Basement. The venue will be sectioned into several deliciously wicked dance spaces and lounges, each housing a specifically spine-chilling theme. Minimal Effort has exerted anything but their ironic namesake — permeating throughout the North American underground dance scene, booking clandestinely cool acts like, Dusky, Lee Burridge, and Damian Lazarus, to name a few. View the full All Hallow’s Eve lineup below.

Boys Noize delivers dizzying Housemeister ‘Stand Up!’ edit

Boys Noize delivers dizzying Housemeister ‘Stand Up!’ editBoys Noize Stand Up Edit 1

Fellow Berlin producers Boys Noize and Housemeister‘s rich and lengthy partnership has yet to slacken in the slightest. For the techno twofold’s latest collaborative endeavor, Housemeister’s most recent EP, Stand Up!, bolsters a Boys Noize edit as its title track, released on Boysnoize Records, no less. Though Housemeister runs a label of his own, AYCB, he has released under Boysnoize precipitously for more than a decade, including multiple studio-length albums.

Boys Noize’s “Stand Up!” edit is no-nonsense, industrial techno in its rawest form, borrowing from Detroit and early ’90s club-fixated fervor. The track’s distorted kicks, glitchy synth loops, and echoing, singular vocal cut will lead listeners to wander through its whirling, hazy techno tunnels.

Boys Noize is staying busy. Having recently worked on A$AP Rocky‘s new album TESTING, an exclusive vinyl-only ORVNGE EP with fashion auteur turned DJ, Virgil Abloh, and a looming possible collaboration with pop megastar Lady Gaga in the works, it’s a wonder how he’d have time for much more.

But alas, Boys Noize is always one to one-up himself and merge musical worlds in unforeseen circumstances. In his latest testament to this previously mentioned ability, the artist’s just produced the ’80s pop and R&B-leaning singer/songwriter Steven A. Clark’s forthcoming album Where Neon Goes To Die entirely.

With one foot in the early pop and contemporary club music of his home city of Miami and the other deep in R&B, Clark’s album echoes a production style in the vein of both Peter Gabriel and Frank Ocean; a production juxtaposition that puts a new and innovative twist on Boys Noize’s typical undertaking.

For now, the two have teamed up with Ape Drums to share their first single “Feel This Way” a funk-focused, feel-good fantasyland. It’s hooky and dripping with honeyed R&B — the perfect summer antidote from one of the most unassuming pop torchbearers.

Boys Noize to release Djedjotronic’s techno-futurist debut R.U.R. feat. Nitzer Ebb

This post was originally published on this site

Westworld and Battlestar Galactica are popular because they place the human condition in stark relief against cybernetic beings indistinguishable from us. These shows call the very nature of our known reality into question, particularly in the context of advances in artificial intelligence. However, our existential anxiety won’t exactly be useful when machines reach sentience and wreak havoc on their makers.

A little-play-that-could from 1920, entitled R.U.R. (translated from Czech as “Rossum’s Universal Robots”), was the work that first introduced the world to the word “robot.” Written by Karel Čapek (pronounced “Chapek”), the play became as influential as something like Blade Runner today for reflecting on the human condition through a terrifying mirror.

For Bordeaux, France-based producer Djedjotronic, Čapek’s play reverberates again in the new century. Musically, it’s the perfect musical framework to return things back to basics. His debut album R.U.R., due out September 14 on Boys Noize, features eleven searing EBM tracks, including a vocal performance from Douglas McCarthy of Nitzer Ebb, sure to get those pistons pumping. Listen to “Take Me Down” featuring McCarthy, below:
