Paris Is Burning (Alex Metric Remix) - Ladyhawke

Size matters, and by any standard of measurement, Alex Metric’s talent is large, as made clear by the release of his new debut artist e.p. Whatshewants. At just 26 years of age, Marine Parade’s newest signing has made a big splash as both DJ and producer. He’s played gigs spanning the globe from Fabric in London to Eastern European festivals to Los Angeles clubs, and developed a significant rep for his work in the studio assisting superstars ranging from Adam Freeland to Darren Emerson. Nominated as breakthrough producer at the 2006 Breakspoll awards, Metric’s also getting buzz for his own production work. DJs across the board have begun to sit up and take notice of his productions on a wide range of esteemed imprints, including Underwater, Fourtwenty, Lot49 and now Marine Parade, with support from the likes of Adam Freeland, James Holden, Laurent Garnier, Pete Tong, Meat Katie, James Zabiela and M.A.N.D.Y. Of late, Metric’s completed official remixes for the likes of GusGus, Black Daniel, Sharam Jey, and Jape (Metric’s driving remix of Jape’s hit “Floating” was recently featured on Adam Freeland’s Global Underground 032: Mexico City mix CD).

On the genre-smashing Whatshewants, Metric’s productions have become more assured, as have the range of influences he brings into his music. In his new grooves, stark electro, indie rock, house, and of course those famous Marine Parade snares all get dumped into the blender to produce a fresh sound not from concentrate.
