Format: Audio CD
2007's 'Oi Oi Oi', debut album by German DJ/Producer
Alexander Ridha was all about high-voltage pandemonium.
Blistering, raw, confrontational and uncompromising in
its full-on, almost vulgar, sonic assault.

I liked it.

New album 'Power' seems to me to be a somewhat more considered
affair. The sound palette, rhythms and melodic ideas have developed
in variety, complexity and maturity. This is not to say that there
has been any significant diminution in energy.

Opening track 'Gax' displays a greater degree of amiability in its
trancey synth arpeggios than we have come to expect from this artist.
The fragmented speech intrusions at its heart are disconcertingly effective.
(Language, in this context, could indeed be a virus from outer-space).

'Starter', 'Sweet Light' and 'Rozz Box' all find Mr Ridha at his
edgily neurotic best. Twitchy, tooth-jarring big beats and loads of
prickly, crackling electricity. An intoxicating mixture.

'Nerve' pushes the boat out into less familiar territory.
A bubbly, watery, techo-pastoral landscape with virtual crickets
clicking in the grass. It possesses both humour and charm (rare
qualities in this, more-often-than-not, po-faced genre).

'Trooper' is a martial percussive nightmare. Dramatic but a tad morally
ambiguous for comfort - but perhaps that's the point of the piece (?)

'Drummer' is an absolute hoot. Pared-down to within an inch of
its life it sounds like an all-night party down at the frog pond!

'Heart Attack' is about as gentle as things get on this impressive release.
It's a really beautiful piece, shot through with warm, shimmering light.
The finest composition by far from this talented composer and hopefully
an indication of even richer rewards to come.

Highly Recommended.

I had high expectations of this album but I still can't believe how good the second Boys Noize album really is.

Alex Ridha has always been talented in not only creating some of the best electronic music around, not only his own music but also his remixes, where he will always give the song a completely new indentity.

Power really seems alot deeper than Oi Oi Oi, a new kind of atmosphere to the music, a new direction, and it's pretty exciting to listen to for the first time. It really experiments with new sounds- and the result is maybe not an album for everyone, but in my opinion a masterpiece just for some of the tracks alone.

It's almost mechanical in places like on "Rozz Box" that just blows you away with it's harsh sound. But then there is the incredible "Heart Attack" which is definately the best album closer I have ever heard, which is softer but still with an infectious beat- and there's plenty of that with "Trooper", probably the most experimental track on Power with a clattering of drums thumping through extra-terrestrial sound effects. Other highlights for me are "Gax", "Jeffer", and "Nerve".

I'm finding it hard to describe the sound on Power, I just know that I want to listen to it again and again. The familiar rough electro sound is there but also there is atmosphere and melody too. I would buy it for Heart Attack alone, but I would recommend it to any fans of electronic music. My album of the year! :)
