Recent signing Metrik crashes onto the Hospital release schedule with this immense self-titled EP.
Hot on the heels of his Essential Mix for BBC Radio One, Metrik has forged a reputation for producing top-notch peak time tunes with catchy hooks and uplifting vibes a-plenty.
Featuring four tracks: “Break Of Dawn”, “Out Of The Fire”, “Solar” and “Distant Shores”, the “Metrik” EP showcases his musically expansive, techy sound which will impress, move and energize their audience in equal measure.
To mark the release of Fred V & Grafix’s first solo release on Hospital, we also have this awesome video to accompany the lead track “Goggles”. Check it out and make sure you grab a copy of the “Goggles” EP from: Hospital Shop / iTunes.
Calm and mellow from start to finish, “Morning Light” is a blissed out track which pairs pattering drums with cooing vocals for maximum effect, whilst guitar strumming and sub-heavy upright bass add weight and depth.
Over on the flipside we have the not-so-cuddly “Grizzly” which switches up the tempo and goes for the jugular with superb trigger-clicking, bass-ridden stabbing beats.
With its unassuming bleep intro, “Goggles” will no doubt take some by surprise with its subterranean sounds as bubbling bass and intricate arpeggios; “Games People Play” ups the ante with a more recognisable Fred V & Grafix aesthetic and then we have “Denmark Road” with its shimmying soundscape, shuffling breaks and Calibre-esque sweeps. Beware the epic “Basilisk” awaiting at the end of the EP with its hypnotizing intro and contorting synth work.
Netsky LIVE! returns to the UK for three shows in Leeds, London and Bristol next week. We’ve got Syron supporting all three shows, plus Dimension playing a DJ set at the London show.
