After the disappointment of canceling the opening show on his first ever “LIVE” tour in Fort Lauderdale last year, Boys Noize is back in South Florida to bring you one of the spookiest and unforgettable Halloweens you have yet to experience. Alongside a few very select dates for his North American fall tour, he decided to make a stop at Miami’s Grand Central for some scary beats and treats on Oct. 31.
Boys Noize, also known as Alex Ridha, has been one of my favorite electronic artists and producers since I was first introduced to his music in 2009. He is the mastermind behind Boys Noize Records
, which hosts artists like Strip Steve
and up-and-comer SCNTST
. Ridha is known for his bone-chilling and hair-raising sets that normally exceed all expectations. He has worked with countless other musicians, including Mr. Oizo
and Erol Alkan
. I could literally talk about Boys Noize all day, but nobody has time for that.
His latest solo release is a 5-track EP entitled Go Hard. It includes one of my new favorites, “Starwin.” However, I think that Go Hard is a deviation away from his previous and signature style. The EP experiments with trap-like sounds, especially with “Push Em Up” and “Excuse Me.” Somehow, Ridha still retains that dark, mysterious, mechanical and robotic sound that he is known for. A real musician is able to exhibit progression throughout their career, but also maintain the sounds and styles that they are known for. I believe that Boys Noize is a perfect example of this.
Brought to you by Poplife, Red Rabbit and Grand Central Present, tickets are currently $25 and can be found HERE. Doors open at 10 p.m., and this is an 18+ event.
