Alex Metric and Congorock invade Hyde Beach for a night of the best electronic production from London to Miami.
Alex Metric came to prominence in 2008 after being voted ‘Best Breakthrough Producer’ at Breakspoll. He also got voted ‘Best Remixer of the Year’ by London radio station XFM.
In 2009, Metric joined Radio 1’s ‘In New DJs We Trust’ with his first show on June 12, 2009. Metric quit the station at the end of 2010 to concentrate on his productions.
In January 2010 Clash Music magazine ranked him at number two in their list of the best DJs of 2010, second only to Brodinski. 2011 saw the release of his collaboration with Steve Angello “Open Your Eyes” on Virgin / Positive which stayed on the BBC Radio 1 A list for 4 weeks. A compilation of Alex Metric’s remix & production work also titled “Open Your Eyes” was released on August 22, 2011. During the past four years he has remixed high profile bands like La Roux, Gorillaz, U2, Depeche Mode, and the Beastie Boys.
From underground phenomenon to emerging star of the world’s biggest dance floors… the hottest fresh face of international dance music hails from Italy… Congorock.
In only two years, with the single Babylon, the remix of Somebody to Love (Boy George/Mark Ronson), and One (Swedish House Mafia), Rocco Rampino has earned the respect of the most famous names in the game, like David Guetta at the legendary Cocoricò of Riccione where he recently shared the console. The Leccese’s powerful electro-house sound and his tropical deejay sets have gained the support from Afrojack to Diplo, from Tiësto to Benny Benassi, from Martin Solveig to Duck Sauce and the Crookers. They’re all expectantly awaiting spring 2013 for his debut album to drop on Ultra Records.
