FRIDAY - 3.7.15
Arkham Presents | Alex Metric [UK]
One of the finer minds in forward-thinking, high-intensity electro rock/disco is on deck at Arkham. With his hugely successful career in production, remixing and performing around the globe, we’re stoked for London-based DJ/Producer Alex Metric to drop in for a night underground on Wulumuqi.
Metric’s early success came in his role as a producer, working with the likes of Snow Patrol, The Infadels and Robbie Williams, continuing to develop his affinity for manipulating sounds. However, he later turned his gaze inward and shifted his focus onto remixing, and ultimately producing his own original tracks. He’s reworked Gorillaz, Phoenix, Depeche Mode and Beastie Boys to name a few. When he dropped the track, “Open Your Eyes,” in 2011 (an original with Steve Angello), it exploded and Metric established himself as a force to be truly reckoned with on the scene.
His brand is clean and energetic, channelling extremely high quality melodies into one crescendo after another, each rise and drop as emotionally dense as it is sonically powerful. Metric is divvying out massive bangers with an added degree of substance and musicality, making music for both the heart and mind.
