London-born producer Alex Metric didn’t always make disco-inflected house music. “Growing up, I was definitely more of an indie kid,” says the recent guest at W’s Sound Suite in Bali. “Oasis, The Verse, Spiritualized, Primal Scream – those were all early favorites of mine,” he divulges. Eventually, Metric discovered big beat, trip-hop and French house and was hooked, giving him a sound that is both fresh and creative.
