Alex Metric is a rare breed in today's pigeonhole-happy game; over the
last decade he's crafted such a broad repertoire and taken so many left
turns he's created a reputation where the unexpected is expected.
Whether he's winning Grammys for production on the Black Eyed Peas album 'The E.N.D', producing top 10 hits for Silk City & Dua Lipa or remixing N.E.R.D & Daft Punk, Foals, Gorillaz or Bloc Party; whether he's firing underground techno cannons on Sololumn's Diynamic or slinky sleazy disco on Skrillex's OWSLA; whether he's working with the likes of Stuart Price, Aeroplane, Steve Angello or Ten Ven or conjuring up full strength club tracks on his own; Alex thrives off contrast, variety and the pursuit of personally unchartered pastures.
This is what's kept him excited about his own craft, relevant and
engaged with all sides of the dancefloor since his debut tracks on cult
bass labels Lot49 and Marine Parade. It's what kept him
un-pigeonholeable through some of electronic music's most accelerated
years and has led to all kinds of far ranging opportunities from
performing in New York's Madison Square Gardens to having production
credits with pop giants such as Avicii, Robbie Williams and Snow Patrol.
Digging deep into disco, electro, techno, house, breaks and all things in between, both as a producer, a songwriter and as a DJ, Alex Metric has achieved a unique singular status in electronic music where you never really know what his next record is going to be... And in today's pigeonhole-happy game, that's priceless.

It's with no hesitation that UK floor-filler Alex Metric drops an assertive 4/4 thump line to initiate the beautiful, diverse and heavy 'Ammunition 3 EP', his second collection of all new tracks for Skrillex's OWSLA collective. The man can't sit still, his provocative sound leaning heavily on UK garage before slamming headlong into breakbeats while rave synth-work fills in the details, and I'm speaking merely about the final cut of the collection. On the four tracks that comprise his newest, diva vocals flit and build around precise claps, stabs punctuate the low-end, flecks of acid permeate the mix; His amalgam is precise and diverse, tied together with a measured ear and impeccable taste.
Alex is an anomaly in his immediate circle of peers, his tunes awash with appreciation for the historical library of UK electronic music while wholeheartedly borrowing the US's most recent, open-armed approach to bass. It's his keen ability to incorporate and reinterpret the influences of the distant past for a wide-eyed audience, and few are doing it better regardless of context. We've seen the first wave crash on western shores, Alex is dead set on proving there's plenty more in the distance.
