Alex Metric has long been considered a pioneer of dance music. After his input on Silk City’s Grammy winning tune, “Electricity,” featuring Dua Lipa, Metric’s credibility is soaring sky high. Now the Brit producer has been recruited by Big Wild for an official remix of his single, “City of Sound,” off his highly-acclaimed debut album, Superdream.
The already groovy original hit that is indie influenced, with deeply felt lyrics, gets an upbeat house-driven spin that propels danceable energy. Excellently produced and exquisite in sound design, Metric proffers a seminal revisioning that glistens in gold, along with corky off-beats, crooning builds and releases, and an all-around energetic house touch.
Fans should keep their eyes pealed for more official remixes on Superdream (Remixes), due out June 14. With Metric featured as the first talent to take on retouching the debut album, there is zero doubt that the next selections will impress.
