Alex Metric – “Rave Weapon 2″


If you haven’t heard of Alex Metric, you’re probably driving the struggle bus. Not riding it, DRIVING IT.  The OWSLA-endorsed and signed UK producer has been releasing bombs and touring now for a while with his UK garage-inspired yet ravey and contemporary acid sound.  Metric turns up the cool factor to about an 11 with his new single, “Rave Weapon 2,” with it’s bouncy pianos, sputtering bassline and grimy sound design. The single is a follow up to this first “Rave Weapon” and is a noticeably darker tone to it.  It’s very different from the first so I’m not quite sure it’s a sequel track, except that it is most definitely a “rave weapon.”  The track comes out next week via OWSLA as part of Ammunition Pt. 3; dropping on the Nest April 1, then worldwide the next day.
