Berlin’s Boys Noize (Alex Ridha) returns with a double single after collaborating with Skrillex and Ty Dolla $ign on “Midnight Hour.” His newest project features prominent rapper Rico Nasty on the first side of the single titled “Girl Crush,” followed by “Buchla 100.” The unique dual A-side format spotlights the contrasting facets and progression of modern techno as seen from the lens of the Ridha. “Girl Crush” also shows a different side of the New York artist as she sings on the thumping, low tempo track while dancing along in the trippy, colorful visuals.

On the other hand, “Buchla 100” includes sounds from the eponymous 1960’s synth system overlaid with tribal percussion, leading to a more upbeat, house-heavy production. Listen to the double tracks now on Soundcloud.
