Offers a glimpse of the high-speed evolution of Berlin's simmering electronic music scene into a futuristic cross-genre exploration with worldwide appeal.

Known as Alex Ridha IRL, BOYS NOIZE releases "Affection" from his fifth studio album "+/-" (pronounced polarity). With a who's who list of other album collaborators that includes Rico Nasty and Tommy Cash, BOYS NOIZE is riding a wave of popular sentiment that shows no signs of slowing down.

"Affection" delivers an Atlanta bass-inspired dance floor anthem that's both resplendently nostalgic and rich in texture. An evocative and sexy hook pairs well with ABRA's confident and powerful vocal presence as this sticky dance number leverages a precision-tuned rhythm into an instant club favorite. ​​The collective volume and diversity of BOYS NOIZE has put him in high demand among artists seeking his proprietary sonic techniques and peerless production. With ABRA he find a natural resonance in the studio, and "Affection" provides a clear example of Ridha's ability to capitalize on this unique and complex collaborative energy to wonderful effect. New album "+/-" offers a glimpse of the high-speed evolution of Berlin's simmering electronic music scene into a futuristic cross-genre exploration with worldwide appeal.

We were both in L.A. and made the song from scratch. She's so talented, plays a bunch of instruments. She wanted to do this freestyle-inspired track, so it became a darker version. It's more of a song than other tracks on the album. — BOYZ NOISE

Affection is a story about realizing that the love is only one way. Love isn’t love when it’s done as a favour - it actually implies the opposite. It is two people being seen and allowing the other to see them. That includes telling your partner the truth about how you feel. — ABRA
