FAKE BLOOD returns to SF, fresh off the heals of two newly released EPs. He has become one of the biggest party/club sensations out there and his self-description says it all, what more could you ask for? “I make music – and I take your music and do what I want with it. If swallowed seek medical assistance. Will stain clothes. Will sound spectacular.” Any questions? The artist also known as DJ Touche, and half of The Black Ghosts, one of the industry's most prominent new bands, hit the music scene with his massive track, Mars and has gone on to create remixes for the likes of Little Boots, Underworld, Dan Le Sac, and the Gossip. 2004 only got better for Fake Blood with his own immortal Essential Mix for Radio 1, providing the decks with his remixes for The Gossip, Miike Snow and Calvin Harris.
Alex Metric is a British musician, DJ and producer. He has released numerous EPs, remixed artists such as Depeche Mode, La Roux, NERD, Phoenix, and Bloc Party as well as working as a producer for acts such as The Infadels, Charli Xcx and Adam Freeland.
With modern electronic music, there's sometimes a tendency to take things, shall we say, 'a little too seriously'. All too often producers and deejays get caught up so heavily in the idea of being elitist and 'underground' that they forget the idea of music altogether – that it should be built to be enjoyed by as many people as possible. This is not a criticism anyone could consider leveling at British wunderkind Alex Metric, however. As the man himself says, 'I want my music to reach far and wide. i want to take on the overground without compromising what i do and what i love." something which, had you attended any one of countless Metric deejay sets last year, or been in a dark, sweaty club where someone was playing one of his myriad tracks or remixes, you would have witnessed first hand in truly emphatic style.
