German producer Boys Noize has unleashed 50 releases on his imprint Boysnoize Records, and he's getting a little nostalgic. For his next single, he's paying homage to his label's first-ever release, his own "Optic/He-Man" single, returning to the same squawky acid house vein he mined all the way back in 2005. There's no denying he's improved in half a decade, though—if "Optic" was a little robot, bumbling across the sands of Tatooine, "1010" is Darth Vader having a coronary and blasting everything in his path as a final act of evil. Wow that was nerdy. But true. Big tune. The flip is apparently a good-vibe vocal house track called "Yeah," but we won't know until this single drops on September 20. FURTHERMORE, in October he'll launch a sub-label for experimental/techno called BNR Trax, with releases in the can from Electric Rescue, Jan Driver, Shadow Dancer and Benny Rodrigues. So is this dude's hustle mode in overdrive or is he just a general beast?
