[Release] Metrik with an Album for Hospital Records

Metrik’s highly anticipated ‘LIFE/THRILLS’ long player, released via Hospital Records, is an outstanding evolution of his signature sound. Under the banner of drum & bass it draws on his love for film soundtracks, ‘80s power-pop, neo-soul and Shibuya-kei, through collaborations with Elisabeth Troy, NAMGAWD, Roméo Testa, Ragga Twins, Rothwell and Reija Lee.

‘Electric Echo’, a collaboration with Fightstar’s Dan Haigh and Alex Westaway’s synthwave side project Gunship, encapsulates the ethos of the album merging the unfamiliar with D&B sensibilities to create a fresh and exciting sound. For those of a purist nature, fear not. Metrik’s sophomore album is one hundred percent drum & bass and he hasn’t forgotten about the dancefloor. Bangers like Western Jam, Fatso and Destination Earth make up a serious proportion of the album’s generous fifteen tracks and reinforce his status as one of the heaviest producers on the block. We also welcome the return of Elisabeth Troy and Reija Lee in Chasing Sunrise and Cadence making for two powerful vocal highlights on the record.

Over the past year Metrik has travelled the world representing drum & bass at major festivals of all denominations; from Glastonbury and Global Gathering to Outlook and EDC Las Vegas. All the while crafting remixes for the likes of DJ Fresh, Ellie Goulding, Gorgon City and Martin Garrix, and collaborating with fellow D&B superstars TC and Netsky. Fans of his UK Dance Chart Top 20 debut Universal Language will find plenty to love here however, its Metrik’s devotion to creating a fresh and thrilling strain of drum & bass is what stands to bring in a new audience and earmark LIFE/THRILLS for instant classic status.
