Vito De Luca re-imagines the British breaks icon’s latest electrohouse anthem.
The title of Alex Metric’s ‘Rave Weapon’ is instructive: the track is all build-and-release, hands-in-the-air theatrics, a modern take on the synth stabs / diva vocals of so many house anthems before it. Aeroplane smooths the song’s rough edges, in the Balaeric beat meets French house style for which he is known.
Stream the remix below. Alex Metric will release the Ammunition EP Pt. 2 on Skrillex’s OWSLA on December 3. The EP features three originals, along with remixes by Mark Starr and UZ. He’ll also be touring North America beginning later this month; those dates are below.
