Amid his ongoing US fall tour, Boys Noize has maintained a characteristically overflowing schedule of his personal releases. On October 26, the German savant ushered within the first new EP from Handbraekes (his resplendently weird collaborative challenge with Mr. Oizo) in 4 years, solely two months after unveiling ELAX, his new techno alias, with “Reaktor” on Solomun’s Diynamic imprint.
Between the 2 most up-to-date choices of Alex Ridha’s quite a few aspect tasks, he teamed up with vocalist Steven A. Clark to offer an industrial-tinged recreation of “Killer,” Adamski and Seal’s 1980s acid home staple. Though little greater than a month has handed since Boys Noize’s scintillating homage, right now, November 2, he has continued his ever-prolific output with fairly a meta-offering: a remix EP of the aforementioned cowl.
Alongside his personal prolonged mixture of the monitor are interpretations from Dense & Pika and Kris Baha. In the previous remix, the duo of British techno luminaries return the favor that Boys Noize prolonged to them over the summer time, when he supplied two remixes of their single, “B-Plug.” Dense & Pika comply with go well with in the same stylistic vein on this launch, constructing a warehouse-worthy atmosphere of detuned chords and home rhythms round Clark’s unique vocals.
The latter remix will doubtless function Kris Baha’s first impression for a majority of Boys Noize’s viewers, however it inarguably leaves an enduring impression. Indeed, stalwart followers of Ridha’s most virulent works might very effectively favor this take from the budding Australian producer to the unique cowl itself. Drawing little from the music’s extra noticeable parts, Baha subtly captures the essence of Boys Noize’s take with a retro-industrial composition that might earn approval from Gesaffelstein as a lot as it could from Joy Division’s Ian Curtis.
