Proper Villians and Metric Man Present: Fire Alarm
Catch the debut of Proper Villians and Metric Man’s collaborative project “Fire Alarm” this Wednesday, October 14th at last.fm and Jillionaire’s Feel Up Records CMJ showcase.
Fire Alarm is the collaboration between veteran dance music producer Proper Villains and seasoned Trinidadian vocalist Metric Man. After meeting through a friend, the two established an immediate musical rapport: Their early collaborations quickly became releases on Fire Power and Play Me, earning support from the likes of Zed’s Dead and Flosstradamus, and placement on MTV’s Teen Wolf reboot. This laid the groundwork for a full length Fire Alarm project.
Proper Villains brings the experience of almost two decades of New York dance music, from Giuliana-era raves to basement dubstep on through today. A versatile talent in his own right, Metric Man is comfortable crooning or chanting, with two mixtapes and releases on Burn the Fire, Easy Star and Reel Me to his name. Together, the duo distill dancehall riddims and heavy bass into something cohesive and new: FIRE ALARM is a force to be reckoned with and their full mixtape is a wild journey.
