Boys Noize is working with Snoop Dogg

Image for Boys Noize is working with Snoop Dogg

That Boys Noize knows how to keep himself occupied. In between all his label duties and non-stop touring, he’s found time to help out a couple of acts who happen to both be making their way to Australia for the Summadayze tour. First up was the Scissor Sisters, with frontman Jake Shears gushing to inthemix that Alex Ridha has been something of a “hard techno” mentor. Next up on Ridha’s radar: none other than hip hop heavy Snoop Dogg.

If you’re not following Snoop’s Twitter, you might’ve missed the surprising announcement: “its official.. workn with @boysnoize on some game changing ishh. U HEAR ME!!” Apart from that, there isn’t much to go on, but we do know that Boys Noize is capable of magic – perhaps more magic than Ian Carey or David Guetta could summon in their Snoop collabs, anyway.

If you’re going to be front and centre sipping on gin and juice at Summadayze, Summafieldayze or Shore Thing, keep an ear out for some “game changing ishh” with a Boys Noize bent. You might get an idea of what to expect from this alliance by revisiting Ridha’s remix of Sensual Seduction below.

What is everyone on about? He has already worked with Black Eyed Peas and other pop artists.The thing I like about boys noize is he seems to be able to keep his collabs seperate from himself.
PS rusdev, he isn't really techno.

I dont know how well alot of you know Ridhas past, if he was going to "sell out" he would have done so a very long time ago. He has worked with numerous high profile artists over the last few yearsand still the majority of his output still comes in the vein of full blooded techno (Hense his release on Cocoon).All it takes is one look at the releases from BNR Trax and BNR to see that Ridha is far from selling out......Relax People

I've every little bit of faith that the colab won't tarnish Alex's rep, nor will he suddenly be overcome by a compulsion to ditch his labels in favour of softcore hip hop. Man's gotta make a living.

As a side-note, Sports Tonight DID just use 'Lemonade' as outro music though. TOTAL sell-out.

Who would've thought working with Snoop would lead to cries of selling out and losing credibility... how things change.
