Alex Ridha a.k.a. Boys Noize
is on the fence between experimental electronics and dubstep, and he toes that line aggressively. Take "What You Want," a song that's apocalyptic, melodic, industrial, and an 80s theme song (hint: "Who you gonna call?") all at the same time. It's great. The only thing that could make it better? Chromeo
. Case and point: P-Thugg and Dave 1 kept the machine-like roots of "What You Want" while amping up the funk. And we love it.
"I wanted something else than the regular banging club versions and I thought of my friends Chromeo," said Ridha to Wired
. "I told them they can do whatever they feel like. They completely blew me away with this super tight funk version."
