Destructo's latest releases is some of his best work yet. When he isn't busy being the CEO of HARD, Gary Richards produces some smooth House tunes. Higher and 2112 are both infectious Tech House jams that will have you hitting repeat. 2112 is my favorite track, the build up and crescendo are great. Brodinski infuses Trap with House on his remix of Higher while maintaining the originals charm. Tommy Trash's version is a heart pounding Electro House jam. All four tracks are great, the original's being the real attention grabbers here! [...]
Destructo has just released an explosive new EP, titled Higher . The EP includes the title track with an extended mix as well as remixes by mega-producers Brodinski and Tommy Trash . The original mix of Higher is a great track in its own right with a perfect house-like breakdown and lyrics that evolve into a more ominous wub-wub. The contrast between these two parts of the song blend together perfectly and break it up in a way that keeps the listener on the edge of their seat. [...]
Here comes the B side off of Destructo's just released Higher EP. These two tracks really hit the spot as a prime indication of Gary's influence and influences in the scene. As from promoting to A&R to Djing the main stage it seems that Gary Richard's A.K.A. Destructo has done it all and is now reaping the benefits. Heading up the popular event brand Hard he is constantly on the run playing and promotion the freshest parties in the US. His emerging sound is a classic blend of techno, house, and electro. Proven by his company, Destructo is definitely doing [...]
Sepultura drummer Iggor Cavalera has recently reinvented himself as the rock-tronica outfit dubbed Mixhell, aiming to imbue electronic music with the fervor of the heavy metal Sepultura was known for. Using his talent for polyrhythms and inventive percussion, Iggor and his wife Laima have expanded the Mixhell sound with the help of an MPC, live drums, CDJs and a rock and roll mentality. The 11-track EP, "Spaces," is an interesting experiment that fuses live rock elements with electronic sampling. Sonically it is far more rock and roll than actual electronica, but the resulting amalgamation of the two sounds is anything [...]
Taken from his forthcoming 5-track “ Go Hard EP ,” Boys Noize’s ‘Starwin’ gets all those convertible drivers in the mood to lower back their roof tops and all Iberian seekers to further indulge in the nocturnal pleasures of the night. Made with a simple Roland TR-909, Boys Noize’s magic strikes again. Boys Noize says: ‘I made one Acid/Hardcore/Rave/Break track ‘Excuse Me.’ One very analogue Techno track ‘Inhale/Exhale’ with no melody and no bass line just really intense Robot voices, one 909 Acid/Disco-House track ‘Starwin’ with summer vibes, one Acid Rap track that goes Hard!! (yes no [...]
Boys Noize – Starwin In case you had any uncertainty that the disco house sound of the early 90s is making a comeback, I think this should put those doubts to rest. ‘Starwin’ is part of Boys Noize’s forthcoming GO HARD EP on his own BNR label. Thoughts?
Those of you who tuned in for Justice's performance at Ed Banger's tenth birthday in Paris a few months ago will have actually already heard the latest track to be unveiled from Boys Noize's new EP 'Go Hard'. Occupying the ground between euphoric French touch and acid house, 'Starvin' showcases a difference side to Alex Ridha as the Berliner blends bombastic brass sections with acid lines, for a track that is torn between two diametrically opposed genres. Check it out below. The post Listen To Boys Noize's 'Starwin' [...]
You may remember Destructo's "Higher" from HARD Summer's lineup announcement back in April, but as always, a Tommy Trash remix has elevated the record to an even more deleterious status. It's gritty and industrial, and Tommy's remix wipes away much of Gary Richard's synth pad work in favor of an explosive electro breakdown. Rolling Stone posted the track yesterday as a free download, so go grab your hard copy here . You just finished reading Destructo - Higher (Tommy Trash Remix) [Free Download] ! Consider leaving [...]

Though the release is still a month away, this week he treated fans to a sneak peak by previewing its titular track. Ridha himself describes "Go Hard" as "acid/(t)rap," and the result is exactly what you'd expect from the combo. With a pogoing vocal intro, slow rolling synthy bassline and straight trap break, the sound is Boys Noize as we've never heard him [...]

Nouveau single pour l'anglais Tracques , plus connu sous le nom de Jacques Lu Cont , qui avant de sortir son album, nous envoie donc un EP constitué de deux morceaux que nous retrouverons par la suite sur Tracques Vol.1. Pour patienter, Motor et Grind se voient donc publiés sur Boysnoize Records et nous plongent un peu plus dans l'ambiance de l'album, des gros titres turbinesques comme l'on n'en écoute finalement plus trop... mais cela reste malgré tout efficace et ravageur !
