Metrist is an outlet for Joseph Higgins' idiosyncratic, constantly evolving dancefloor tailored endeavours. The Brighton based artist’s intensity and sense of humour can be heard through his approach to alien-like sound design and mangled beatwork in his jaunty oddball shaped work. Through his collaborations with labels such as Opal Tapes, Where To Now? and most recently Timedance, Higgins's work has been described by Hardwax as a “Dare-to-be-different true techno explorer”. As a DJ, Metrist's sets - which have graced a number of stages, from the renowned Freerotation Festival and London's Corsica Studios - combine his broken-beat UK influences with functional, slapping techno.
