The British DJ/producer Alex Metric is one of the most underrated producers around in my opinion. Alex is one of the few producers who has never been constrained specific genres. He has a unique style that incorporates a hard hitting electro sound, grooving disco vibes and big room sounds that are consistently produced at the highest quality. Following the release of Ammunition Pt. 2 after teaming up with Skrillex’s OWSLA team Metric has just released Ammunition Pt. 3. ‘Ilium’,the first track on the EP, has a driving progressive electro feel that is exquisitely glued together with soft breaks, complex percussion, an energetic topline and perfectly incorporated vocal snippets. The second track on the EP, ‘Scandalism’, chills out the vibe with a moving bassline, euphoric arpeggiated top line and an infectious melody. ‘Want Ya’ is in the same vein as ‘Ilium’ with a pumping low end, chopped up vocal samples and interspersed piano stabs that makes this track hit hard while still maintaining a groovy vibe. To round out the EP ‘Rave Weapon 2′ slows the pace from the original single as Metric gives the track a more ominous feel with a drawn out dark bassline intertwined with pounding percussion and unnerving synth stabs. Ammunition Pt. 3 is a breathe of fresh air in as it really stands out from the myriad of releases these days that have fallen into the confines of what has been deemed as popular in dance music today.
