It’s all about the song for Alex Metric. Whether it’s an original track, a remix or producing a band, there has to be a personal connection. If he doesn’t feel it, why would anyone else. “It’s always about making something with real emotion,” says the 28-year-old DJ from London. “My core philosophy is to do whatever’s right for the song and to try and make it have some meaning to me. I put so much love into everything I do.” His new album ‘Open Your Eyes’ brings together the three stands of his musical outputs. Standout tracks include ‘End of the World’ featuring up-and-coming singer Charlie XCX and a soaring epic house collaboration with Steve Angello called ‘Open Your Eyes’. With that said, Alex is probably best known for his remixes - the dancefloor gem of juddering electro house bass that is his remix of ‘Lisztomania’ by Phoenix being a great example of his abilities. Other great examples include his remix of ‘Quicksand’ by La Roux and ‘Stylo’ by Gorillaz. With so many strings to his bow, we are in for a real treat.
