After a handful of monumental collaborations, Dog Blood member Boys Noize is back and better than ever with not one, but two brand new singles. The acclaimed German producer worked with a myriad of massive artists last year such as Skrillex, Ty Dolla $ign, Frank Ocean, A$AP Rocky, Lady Gaga, and more. Though these collaborations were indisputably top grade, these two new solo releases are excitedly welcomed.
“Girl Crush,” featuring Rico Nasty sees the level of experimentalism and genre-defying that keeps Boys Noize at the top of his class. The combination of gritty, industrial synthesis, a slab of drum ‘n’ bass-inspired percussion join with Rico Nasty’s influence to make this track something truly special. The second single, “Buchla 100” is a heads-down, techno masterpiece that’s sure to make its rounds in this years’ club and festival circuit.
Are we about due for a blog-hause revival? It wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world, would it? Alexander Ridha, the German DJ and producer who records as Boys Noize, came up in the that whole mid-’00s wave, and he’s been working steadily ever since. He’s also become a prolific collaborator — working with … More »

A week after Four Tet‘s contribution, “Midnight Hour” has received an extended remix package. Underground house titan Mall Grab brings a unique flavor to the track, speeding it up to 140 BPM and adding a hefty kick. Tunisian veteran-producer Loco Dice doubles down on the house rhythms and patterns of the original to create a lengthened cut that should easily fit in sets. To round out the project, Skrillex and Boys Noize contribute their dub mix to join Four Tet’s remix.
This release is yet another chapter in the story of the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted track. From Grammy nominations to remix packages, the Dog Blood team’s latest won’t say die.
Known primarily for his calming production, a spin on one of 2019’s flashiest tracks might surprise some Four Tet fans. While the terrain defies expectations, the English electronic artisan delivers with a remix certainly worth a listen.
Skrillex scored his thirteenth Grammy nomination this week for his collaborative work with Boys Noize and Ty Dolla $ign on “Midnight Hour.” The track has easily been one of the most heavily rotated dance cuts of the year, so Skrillex took to social media to thank fans for the deserved Best Dance Recording nomination. Though his choice of words had fans doing double-takes when he mentions wrapping up on his albums. Albums? As in multiple full-length projects? It would seem so. It looks like the sophomore follow up to Recess is underway… and then some. But are both of these supposed albums being completed side by side? Are they both slated for 2020? One innocuous message to fans raises a lot of questions.
Now, that’s not to say that Skrillex wasn’t referring to a possible Dog Blood project and a solo venture, or a solo LP and production work on someone else’s record, so “albums” leaves considerable room for interpretation. It’s been no secret that the “Mumbai Power” producer is sitting on a massive trove of new material, but now it’s clear 2020 is undoubtedly going to be the year of Skrillex.
