Review: Elax is a new alter ego of Hamburg's Alexander Ridha - better known as Boys Noize. Following up his debut EP for local powerhouse Diynamic earlier this year, here is the Bescio EP - which sounds like the favourite summer festival weekend you wished for. The title track is a groovy and low slung affair, full of raw synth energy, exciting percussive solos, a hypnotic bassline and disco drums. Next up is "With Lou" where you see the last rays of sunshine on the orange horizon on this bittersweet and glassy eyed number. This is perfect to play on the drive home from the festival, down the autobahn with your sunroof down - of course!
Review: Next up on Hamburg imprint Diynamic is celebrated homeboy Alexander Ridha aka Boys Noize under his new Elax alias. He debuted on the Four To The Floor series back in August with is Reaktor EP and returns with his new scorcher named "Sueno". Unlike the high octane productions under his usual alias, Ridha proves that he is a versatile artist on this epic serving of dancefloor drama that creates an emotive atmosphere by its use of elaborate melodic chord progressions. Second offering "Rhumba" uses a familiar hook from the acid house era reinterpreted brilliantly for modern dancefloors on this sleek tech house cut.
