Listen To Erol Alkan's Guest Mix On 'Metropolis'

A noted DJ, producer, collaborator and label owner, Erol Alkan remains one of UK club culture's defining figures, strikingly original and wholly influential. By bringing an alternative spin to his DJ sets, Alkan bridges the gap between electronic music and classic instrumentation with his genre-bending selections of techno, house and rock music.

He's recently dropping new 12-inch Spectrum' b/w 'Silver Echoes, his first new solo material in almost five years. A blend of contemporary influences and classic vibes, Spectrum' b/w 'Silver Echoes, each capture a side of Alkan's ever-evolving technique, his studio mixing prowess, and his killer instincts on what moves a dancefloor. We are thrilled to welcome him to Metropolis for an exclusive guest mix ahead of his DJ set at CRSSD festival in San Diego, Calif.
