Electro News :I suppose you’re very excited about this new tour, tell us more about how you feel !
Boys Noize : Well, I feel very good and very lucky to make this tour. I love travelling all around the world, discovering new places. This is a total new challenge for me so I’m a bit nervous but that’s a crazy experience !
EN:Why did you decide to create this new live show ?
BN : « Out of the Black » is my third album so now I have enough songs of mine to play a full concert ! I think DJ-sets are very interesting, playing the tracks of other Djs that you like, doing crazy things on stage and so on, but I wanted to start something new . That’s why I decided to make this live show. And I love it ! .
EN :How and when did you decide to produce electronic music ?
BN : It was in 1998, I was working in a record shop and I started to make some mashups with a friend who had a computer (because I had no computer at that time). Then I bought a computer and started to produce my own tracks.
EN : Why did you do this featuring with Skrillex ? Was it just about marketing or was it a true desire for musical collaboration ?
BN : (laughs) Neither ! Sonny (Skrillex) was in Berlin. He is a good friend of mine so he came to my studio (he was quite impressed ! ). And little by little we started to make new tracks. We had a lot of fun producing this stuff !
EN : Many people think « Boys Noize » are two persons, so where does your name come from ?
BN : I chose « Boys Noize » just because « Boy Noize » does not sound good ! And it is more to be understood as « Boy’s Noize ».
EN :How many caps do you really own ?
BN : Haha ! I don’t count but there are lots of them.
EN:What are your favorite artists currently ?
BN : Maelstrom is maybe my favorite producer of the moment. But I also love Djedjotronic, Housemeister and other artists from BoysNoize Records.
EN:Thanks for answering our questions Alexander !
BN:You’re welcome, it was a pleasure !
