Alex Metric

There is no doubting that there is a buzz surrounding Alex Metric at the moment, but I’m still baffled as to why he is not better known than he is?

Don't worry - he survived the fall

He hails from the land of Breakbeat. His career kicked off after chance encounter with electronic guru Adam Freeland which saw him signed to Marine Parade, whilst also being signed to lesser known label ‘Spin’. His early successes could be put down to the fact that he was able to craftily blended electro, rock and breaks into his tunes – a style that was very popular at the time. Since the sorry demise of breakbeat, Metric has been quietly (or should i say, noisily) plugging away, building a reputation as someone that should be taken VERY seriously in the electro scene. 

And it looks like his years of hard work are beginning to pay off and he’s now starting to gain the recognition that he deserves. He recently secured himself a slot as a Radio 1 Extra DJ, and now dare I it, say he’s come out with one of his best remixes to date. Even better than his Monster Hospital remix I hear you ask? Decide for yourselves. I’m sold…

This is another one of his new efforts – again it’s superb. As the years go by he’s clearly getting better and better and I reckon that the best is still yet to come. Watch this kid – he’s going to be very well known soon.
