Fedde Le Grand and "Metrum" Hit LIV June 3

Ever since Fedde Le Grand dropped his robotically hypnotic electro-house hit "Put Your Hands Up 4 Detroit" back in the summer of 2006, the Dutch beat technician's been doing his best to top it.

And yeah, he's taken a few solid shots with tracks like 2007's "The Creeps," 2009's "Scared Of Me," and 2010's "New Life." But after five years, it's starting to look as though "Detroit" might stand as Fedde's major contribution to the post-millenial party scene.

Neverthelesss, Mr. Le Grand knocked out another single, "Metrum," just last week. And he seems pretty convinced that this tech-y cut's gonna be his next massive club killer.

For months, he's dragged the track to festivals all around the planet -- including Germany's Sea of Love, England's Global Gathering, and Texas's Nocturnal -- testing it out on enormous crowds of captive ravers. And this Saturday, Miami's club rats finally get their chance to serve as test subjects for Fedde's latest sonic experiment.

Fedde Le Grand. Saturday, June 3. LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. The party starts at 11 p.m. and tickets cost $75 via Call 305-674-4680 or visit
