At only 27 Alex Ridha already has a decade’s worth of music making and DJing behind him. What’s ahead of him? One of the brightest future’s in electronic music. Ridha presented his second album „POWER“ end of 2009, keenly anticipated by a fan-base that follows his every move.
Alongside peers Erol Alkan and Justice, Ridha is part of a new mongrel breed of techno artist with a maverick bent and solid vision, beaming a myriad of influences from the past through a prism to create something fresh, new and exciting enough to send his audience loopy. This year he’s also become a sought after producer of note having worked with Kelis, Black Eyed Peas and Gonzales.
Alex is currently taking on remix work again, although he is mainly focusing original production work for other artists and himself. He has recently leant his beats and pieces to Black Eyed Peas and Kelis, produced most of the tracks of the new album from UK rapper KANO (exec. produced by Damon Albarn) and is currently writing for several international artists as well as working on new BOYS NOIZE music.
He has also found time to continue to work alongside friend and fellow DJ Erol Alkan: After the first double-a-side single “Waves”/“Death Suite” (released on BNR August 2009), their second collaboration “Lemonade”/ “Avalanche” came out on Erol’s Phantasy Sound Label in March 2010.
