Up this week one of the shows earliest and loyal listeners and an ever growing force in electronic music. Perhaps better known as being one half of festival breakbeat mega raver favourites Ben & Lex; I’m very happy to present: Metroboy.
Metroboy aka Ben Ervine is a producer/DJ from the southwest of England, and forms one half of award-winning breakbeat duo Ben and Lex. Metroboy’s music is a crunchy, hard-bleep style of minimal and tech house, with unflinching grooves and uplifting tones sure to lock in any dancefloor. His remix of Benjamin Vial’s “The Bass and the Monkey” was released on Plasma.Digital in Feb 2009. Further remixes for Ape and VIM records are in the pipeline.
Since Sept 2007 MetroBoy has hosted a bi-monthly tech house, minimal and techno show on Brap.FM featuring the latest sounds from Minus, Get Physical and Berlin as well as many other quality modern tech producers. A full archive of the show in podcast format is available on the MetroBoy blog – Well worth exploring for some awesome mixage from tech jazz and deep house to crunchy techno.
REST OF DA SHOW
Usual business with yours truly, DVNT, selecting the first hour of sound presenting my current crop of darkfloor electronica.
