German producer Alex Rhida, aka Boys Noize, has made a name for himself as one of the most illustrious DJs today. Merging various styles of electronic music, Rhida’s innovative sound has earned him acclaimed awards, such as “Top 10 DJs Who Rule the Earth” by Rolling Stone and “Best Electronic Artist” by Beatport.
In 2005, Rhida launched his independent record label Boysnoize Records (BNR) to bring his own music to the world without forfeiting creative control.
“I don’t compromise when it comes to music,” the 32-year-old Rhida says. “I do what I think is cool and what I like and not what the market wants or people may expect. Maintaining artistic freedom has always been the most important thing to me — for my own music and for anyone on my label!”
A decade later, BNR remains independent and celebrates 10 years of supporting more than a dozen artists across 100 releases.
On Friday, Boysnoize Records continues the #BNR10YR celebration in SF at Mezzanine with SALVA, Spank Rock, SCNTST, Cities Aviv, PILO and Escor Krist all hitting the decks before Rhida takes the stage.
