Alex Metric announces new ‘Ammunition Pt. 4’ EP; pairs with new track ‘Drum Machine’
It’s been over two years since Alex Metric released his third and latest Ammunition EP, composed of “Ilium,” “Scandalism,” “Want Ya” and “Rave Weapon.” The series’ fourth iteration, which will expose collaborations with The New Sins, The Knocks, and Amtrac, is due out on October 2nd via OWSLA/Big Beat Records.
Alongside the EP announcement, the UK heavyweight has also unveiled Ammunition Pt. 4’s leading track – “Drum Machine.” Staying true to form, Metric calls on his simplistic style to create a clean, yet catchy record founded on sensual snares, a stabbing bass aesthetic and one drum machine – a TR8, in particular. Citing “Drum Machine” as “an experimentation in limitations,” Alex recalls the production process to be challenging yet organic in the way each element fell into place.
