Depeche Mode – My Little Universe (Boys Noize Remix) (single) (Boysnoize Records)
The release of the remixes continues Ridha’s musical relationship with the band, having remixed Personal Jesus for the Boys Noize – The Remixes release back in 2011.
Boys Noize approaches My Little Universe with total respect for the original, leaving the vocal as it is, along with a strong linear arrangement. All of Ridha’s trademark, high-octane thrills are on full display making this remix an absolute killer.
During the first minute, the song builds and it’s at 1:20 when Boys Noize really puts his stamp on this track. With its four-to-the-floor kick pulse, constant builds, and tasty synth work, this thing teases and teases until it completely explodes.
Just check out the acid madness that occurs at 3:25, sounding like laser beams shooting across the sky.
It has been a busy past year for Alex Ridha AKA Boys Noize, touring the world extensively and releasing an EP as Dog Blood and Out of The Black – The Remixes (read our review) that saw Justice, The Chemical Brothers, Blood Diamond, Jimmy Edgar and more re-calibrate some of his own techno patterns. With the announcement of another world tour this year, and a string of further releases from his BNR blueprint, the Boys Noize machine is prolific as ever.
Depeche Mode Delta Machine Boys Noize + Djedjotronic Remixes will be available via Beatport 24, June 2014.
