Boys Noize’s new ELAX alter-ego announces debut performance, drops Friendship Mix ahead of cruise
Boys Noize is amid the launch of his new solo side project, ELAX, and since the new moniker’s tantalizing debut, “Reaktor” on Solomun‘s Diynamic imprint over the summer, fans have been eager to find out what Alex Ridha actually has up his sleeve. Now, it appears the project is ready to fully materialize with the announcement of Boys Noize’s debut performance as ELAX. Ridha will take the stage at Sound Nightclub in Los Angeles on December 7 to unveil his new alter ego. Shortly thereafter, ELAX will also sail on The Friendship‘s maiden voyage with longtime friend and collaborator Destructo‘s AMFAMFAMF brand.
ELAX’s live debut will come exactly one month after the BNR head honcho’s first delivery under the new banner, recently dropping his two-track Sueño EP as the first real insight into the project’s sonic direction. Now, Ridha is upping the ante, proctoring a full hour-long mix as part of The Friendship’s running mix series to hype both the debut club appearance and the following ELAX performance aboard Destructo’s new floating festival.
