Last year saw many weird and wonderful collaborations; our favourite was Squarepusher and the Ed Banger Records crew. Well a rather unexpected collaboration has come to our attention and it’s Alex Metric and Steve Angello – they’ve come together and created “Open Your Eyes”.
Rest assured it’s not pap, it’s actually very good indeed, Metric’s trashy production with Angello’s unapologetic swirling big-room sound makes for a real good peak-time track.
‘Open Your Eyes’ will be released as an instrumental on Beatport on 31st January. It’s then getting a follow up release on 20th March 2011 which will feature an indie legend delivering a top line vocal! An Album, also entitled ‘Open Your Eyes’, will follow a few weeks later too. Not sure what the collaboration is called but we vote for Gelometric.
You’ll no doubt be hearing this in the summer mark my words.
