“What You Want” is the first track off his new album – “Out of the Black.” A review of that album will be coming in the next few days.
Boys Noize, the pseudonym of Alexander Ridha, has worked with countless other musicians – Fiest, Roykasopp, Daft Punk, Spank Rock – and all to great success.

He has a line up of US tour dates starting later this month, with a date in DC on 11/28 at the Fillmore.
