The way EDM is distributed nowadays is pretty interesting. Songs can be out in the public (read: internet) for months and even years before they see any kind of official release. While staying up to date with the latest and greatest is always important, indulging in a bit of dancefloor nostalgia never hurt anyone.

Radio 1 alumnus Alex Metric has a new album full of these flashback-inducing tunes. Open Your Eyes, released on August 22 via Polydor and named for his recent hit with Steve Angello, is two years of production genius packed into a tight 14 track compilation. From his more recent rework of Niki & the Dove’s Mother Protect to his 2009 Fenech-Soler Lies remix , Metric’s productions have thus far been well-preserved in a genre notorious for “perishable” music.
