Boys Noise aka Alex Riddha is about the mark the end of his amazing artist album “Power” with one last single release. And he has chosen techno slabs, “Nott” and “Trooper” to go out with a power-bang.
The release comes with some stellar remix work too, with techno-Godfather and Detroit legend Robert Hood taking “Trooper” into a techno-machine, with big dry kickdrums and static percussion that reflect the original idea behind “Trooper”. A very special vocalist appears on the mix in the form of Robert’s daughter, who sings the “left, right, left, right” vocal line, to add that little extra dancefloor magic.
Elsewhere, remixes are handed out to Belgium’s Paul Chambers who transforms the track into a full beeps and bleeps acid workout.
Fellow BNR cohort Shadow Dancer also gets a looks in with a more percussive angle, and takes it down the house route. A great alternative Nott?
And to finish, Berlin buddy Phon.O turns “Trooper” into an epic Warehouse dub mix – oldschool meets new school, and we are also including one very special digital exclusive mixes from Mixhell and Steve Strip.
As a digital Bonus you get Hey Today!’s bass mix on Power’s album track “Nerve”.
