Album Review

Invoking Public Image Ltd., it's a robotic voice that introduces Boys Noize's excellent 2012 effort Out of the Black, looping through that "This is what you want, this is what you get" couplet, although this time, there are no ironic intentions or snide ways about it. This aptly titled effort is a wall-to-wall triumph of speaker ripping, black as night and hooky with that heritage-style neo-electro that Alexander Ridha and his Boys Noize project have nailed and thrilled fans with previously, planet rocking and bass dropping like Bambaataa, the Miami bass scene, Skrillex, Fatboy Slim, and Kraftwerk all at the laptop, crafting something for the Mad Decent label or Paul Oakenfold's radio show. All that said, Out of the Black has a nimble way about it that's identifiable as Ridha, as Kraftwerk samples (the crowd-pleasing transmission "XTC"), a vicious Snoop Dogg appearance ("Ho's give up the cat to the thunder man" on the strutting "Got It"), and Giorgio Moroder-flavored Euro-disco ("Chonchord" and "Reality" both coast along the space ways) all enter and exit without disrupting the album's flow. As far as 2012 sounds, "Rocky 2" is as garish and punchy as its movie sequel namesake with a bass drop that bangs around like a video game boss, and if the grime genre sipped syrup it would sound like the woozy wobbler "Circus Full of Clowns" with rapper Gizzle luring the listener into a cold, nightmarish world. It's arguably the one to skip, as the rest of this bass beast is cool over cold and fun over frightening, but leave it in for headphone listening as Out of the Black works either on the dancefloor or at the workstation, offering beat nuts from the Front 242 generation to the Deadmau5 kids their deep, dark, and delicious fix.

Customer Reviews


Huge fan of Boys Noize. The guy has a knack for stringing songs together. Great ear for melodies and rhythms, unlike most electro/house junkies. the sounds are always evolving to keep listeners intrigued. I was a little surprised to see Snoop on a track, but whatever. Boys Noize has never disappointed before.

One of 2012's best EDM offerings.

Boys Noize is back with beats that are harder, better, faster and stronger.

Tracks like XTC, What You Want, Missile and Stop are going to be instant club bangers. And Got It (feat. Snoop Dogg) gives the album a fresh injection of "cool."

Great album.
