Today we have something exciting from the trend setting electro/techno icon Boys Noize with the premiere of his "Strictly Raw Vol 1" nine track EP. The release celebrates 10 years of his label Boysnoize Records, featuring collaborations with Tiga, T.E.E.D, Pilo and more. This EP showcases many different sounds from BN while sticking to his raw, extra gritty roots. Here is some words from BN on the EP:
"The idea of the Strictly Raw Vol 1. release is to take 1 drumachine + 1 or 2 synths and make a track with it. Over the last years friends came in and out of my studio and sometimes we end up jaming on my machines. Since it’s #BNR10YR I wanted to collect the good ones and put them all together and there is some serious magic going on :) As a DJ you always look out for these timeless house or techno music and here are 8 tracks that go from breaks to techno to acid to classic house, all analog, all strictly raw !!" - Alex Ridha
