Metrik is back with an LP called “Life/Thrills”, which of course will be released on Hospital Records. As far as I know, it will be available in stores tomorrow!
The album is no surprise, but a solid work with exactly what I expected. Metrik uses lots of melodies to create a melancholic sound throughout the whole LP.
Some of the tracks are a bit off the road, like the title tune “Life/Thrills” featuring Nawgawd. The rap parts remind a lot of the festival EDM sound that is popular in Europe right now. Not my favorite, but still interesting to listen to the DnB version.
Plus, there are some other interesting features included, like the collaboration with the Ragga Twins called “World Wide”, which uses a sound design more common in Dubstep.
Most of the works are very chart orientated and will not make it into my own playlists, but that is just a matter of personal taste. My favorite so far is “How Far” featuring the vocal talents of Romeo Testa. Cheesy, but I like the positive vibe about it.
Worth checking if you like the billboard/festival sound! Very solid work!
