Metrist’s new mixtape for Rob Booth’s Electronic Explorations podcast series uses Underworld “Bruce Lee (The Micronauts Remix)”. The mixtape is also featured by the American street culture blog Killahbeez in its Mixtape Mondays selection.
“Mixtape Mondays: Electronic Exploration 459 Metrist” by Van for Killahbeez, Monday 27 February 2017:
For this week’s Mixtape Mondays selection, we paid a visit to Rob Booth’s Electronic Explorations podcast series. Brighton based Metrist (or Metrist L. Sae or Joe Higgins to those that know him personally) takes over Episode 459 and presents us with 57 minutes of broken beat and techno. Recorded live at Patterns in Brighton, the mix has an intro that’ll remind you of a live show where you and your friends are grabbing a brew right when the main act starts, positioning yourself for optimal 4/4 enjoyment. Have a listen and or skip to the 4 minute mark if you wanna get to the meat and bones of this mix.
“This is pretty representative of what I play, minus the drone. I am getting a lot of fun out of the amalgamation of broken beat and 4 to the floor work as I have always drifted unknowingly between the two – this mix I guess is an audible representation of my unwillingness to focus on one or the other.”
“Thank you to Patterns, Brighton for letting me record this in the club, and thanks to the wandering bar staff walking through the room at various points.” – Metrist
