Get yo Head Straight!
Since i have the Squid Flu this week, my sense of imagination and humor has been adversely affected... meaning all i can muster are the facts.
Alex Metric. The dude makes amazing music.
Way back when i first heard a granule of his work i passed it off as more gay 80s sounding synth pop... then i heard his remix of Evil Nine and that all changed... as i heard more and more of his work i then realised how great his music really is. Now i dont think I could make a playlist without at least one of his tracks innit... meaning he's now one of my favourite Musicians out at the moment.
Thats why Im really excited about his "Head Straight" EP out on the 18th of May. The title track, Head Straight, i must admit is that gay 80's synth pop stuff... that i aint feelin, but the other 2 tracks "now what?" and "Shirley, you cant be serious" are amazing.
I also learned that Alex Metric is really good DJ too... Heres the proof. His March 09 Mix for ya'll show cases the two tracks mentioned earlier... fantastic stuff.
