Alex Metric (pictured) teamed up once again with disco- and house-heads Oliver for Hope, a thick slice of house music that goes down as easily today as it would in late-’80s Chicago.
Given how well the three blended styles on Motion Study from Metric’s Ammunition Pt. 2 EP, a follow-up collab is no surprise, and neither is the fine production that results. As the lead single and title track from his next EP, Hope sets the tone with a taste of classic jackin’ house vibes modernized by Metric and Oliver with squishy electro accents contrasted with throwback, jutting piano chords.
The Hope EP will include two more “future-house” tunes when it drops April 22 on OWSLA/Big Beat.
