Mixin’ It Up: Alex Metric

Oct 11 2008

This should have been posted yesterday but, as you might know, I was trapped on a train. So now you get a Mixin’ It Up on a Saturday instead.

This time we have invited Alex Metric to do the mixin’. He will be releasing his EP “Deadly On A Mission” on Marine Parade on October, 20th so it is just natural that he has included some tracks from that release on this mix.

TRACKLIST:

Phoenix – Schools rule

Always wanted to start a mix with this. One of my favourite bands ever. This has inspired me to go deeper and do a proper re-edit for my dj sets.

Golden Boy – I Cant Stop

Had never heard of Golden boy till a few weks ago. stumbled across them on beatport and swiftly bought all the tunes i could find. Really love their stuff! Golden Bullets is another track of theirs worth hunting for.

Cassius – Feeling For You (LRD Mix)

2 of my favourite and most influential artists head to head. Jaques can do no wrong in my eyes. and cassius are leg ends, so its a match made in heaven. Nearly 10 years old now but still sounds fucking
fresh to me.

Thieves Like Us – Drugs In My Body (Just A Band Mix)

LOVE Just a band at the moment. Their Alex Gopher mix has to be one of my most played tracks of the year. This is heading that way. its got some balls, but retains the funk and has a wicked filter disco vibe to it.

DJ DLT – Paramount (Rogerseventytwo Mix)

Another of my favourite producers right now. Roger has that french sound but with his own twist on it. this is another of my most played tunes over the last year. never fails. Top guy too.

Alex Metric – Caller

B side to my new ep. i’d like to think its a record that twists and turns and throws a few surprises in there.

Treasure Fingers – Cross The Dancefloor (Alex Metric Mix)

Pleasure to do a remix for a label like Fools Gold. I’m really pleased with how it turned out. It was the first tune i used my brand new vocoder on!

Digitalism – Home (Proxy Mix)

It’s taken me a while to warm to Proxys stuff. It didnt grab me initially. But this and the Moby remix changed my mind. Simple tunes that sound huge out.

Bloc Party – Mercury (Herve Mix) Alex Metric re-edit

Herve’s stuff i can generally take or leave, doesnt really fit with what i play. Though when he goes a bit rocky i’m all over it. His Dune mix from early this year was excellent too. I like the distinct sections to this and the raviness. i just got rid of the half time bits and tideied it up a bit for my edit.

Alex Metric – Deadly On A Mission (Alex Metric Mix)

My remix of my vocal version of deadly on a mission. Confused? dont be! the full vocla version isnt so club friendly, and theres has already been the dub out so i needed a mix that sat in the middle. it has the vocals but will kill it on the dancefloor (I hope) :)”

    Dude is still underrated. the next Justice. The Rapture mix was untouchable and can’t wait for the new single (both sides!).

    there’s another website that gets artists to list their fav tracks. great idea. is called http://www.mysecretplaylist.com – they’ve had people like Supergrass, The Vines, Moby, etc etc. Well good. Also do a weekly newsletter with a Playlist attached
