The British are coming! Quick, put on your dancing shoes and head to South Beach! The UK’s Alex Metric hits the scene Friday at Mansion (1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach), where he’ll deliver his hip brand of house, electro, and funky synths to one of Miami’s most fabulous dance floors. The superstar DJ and producer has been a major player since first making waves in the game in 2008. He worked on BBC Radio 1’s In New DJs We Trust series until 2010 and was named the second-best DJ of 2010 by Clash Magazine. With high-profile remixes for Depeche Mode, La Roux, Gorillaz, and the Beastie Boys under his belt, he’s sure to play something you love. Plus he packs an arsenal of original hits, including the indie-tinged chill beat of “End of the World” and the epic house anthem “Open Your Eyes,” produced in collaboration with Steve Angello. A highly varied artist, Metric will please almost any house or electro fan, so don’t miss your chance to see one of Britain’s best.
