Electro isnt a femme fatalewhen its bad, its not better, its just fucking bad. Luckily for Alexander Ridha, whos been producing and damaging other peoples productions since 2004 as Boys Noize (also the name of his Berlin-based label), his electro is good. Which makes it very good. Oi Oi Oi came out last fall, which included a reworking of Feists My Moon, My Man, and other numbers hes done a number on lately include Snoop Doggs newest ditty, Sensual Seduction. Brilliant. In electro, cheekiness is as important as actually liking your source material, and aesthetics are everythingjust check out Ois cover art, a riff on Damien Hirsts famous diamond-studded skull, the gaudiest and most expensive piece of art in the world. With Recess, Introcut, Brian S, Saigon, and Squid Leader. RACHEL SHIMP
