Lowdown: Alex Metric & Riton
During the first bank holiday in May, Lowdown will return to Sound Control to bring one of their favourite DJs from the past few years back onto the stage, we are of course talking about the hot to trot electro producer Alex Metric. Alex is a british DJ, producer and musician who is known foremost for his break heavy, electro clad edits of new school pop artists such as N.E.R.D, La Roux, Phoenix and Ellie Goulding, not to mention a number of classic electronic outfits, with Depeche Mode being at the tip of that iceberg. After his blistering performance in 2013, he will be returning to Sound Control to show Lowdown what he can do once more.
Joining Alex Metric will be one time Manchester resident Riton, a key artist on the Ed Banger artist roster and one whose bass driven house will compliment Alex's perfectly. Many may have heard Riton through his Warehouse Project Mixmag CD from back in 2008, which contained esteemed artists such as Simian Mobile Disco, Mr Oizo, Late Of The Pier, Hot Chip and A-Trak to name but a few. This gives you an idea of how on the nose his euphoric electro clash music can be, the second performance of the night that will go down a storm.
To add further excitement there will also be a selection of local residents playing alongside the headliners to get the place warmed up perfectly.
