London-based DJ and musician Alex Metric is one of the hottest players on the electronic music scene. He’s remixed songs by big-name artists like Phoenix, Ellie Goulding, La Roux and Depeche Mode and currently produces several music acts. We grabbed Alex for a quick Q&A in the blu eCigs Vapor Lounge at the HARD Summer Music Festival in LA. He talked about the mad energy of festival shows and where he finds his inspiration. For him, a major source of ideas is hearing something new—even if it’s old (he likes shopping for records at thrift stores and second-hand vinyl stores). Find out what Alex says is the key ingredient to a good song. Hint: It’s not just the beat that gets a song stuck in your head. Plus, see how blu eCigs® electronic cigarettes fit into the mix.
