Enigmatic producer Boys Noize has always kept a low profile when it comes to projects. Having gone by numerous names over the years including as Dog Blood with Skrillex, today the German electro veteran has just shared the first ever mix under his new alias ELAX.
Over the years we’ve seen a great deal of artists bring back or branch out to new projects. As we recently saw this with deamau5’ Testpilot & Porter Robinson’s Virtual Self, although considered somewhat a bold move, it’s always exciting to see what comes of the switch-up.
With Boys Noize having dropped his first track as ELAX only a few months ago, we’re finding this latest house/tech-fusion mix, while at the same time reminiscent of the unique sound we’ve come to know and love from Boys Noize, perfectly blurs the lines between retro, minimal 4/4 structures and gritty, thumping electro. As Boys Noise gears up to embark on Destructo’s new All My Friends Friendship Festival cruise as both himself and ELAX, make sure to keep an eye out for more to come from the new alias. Stream the mix below and enjoy!
