Hot off the continued success of his anthemic single “We Got It” (featuring Rothwell) on Hospital Records—available here—Metrik steps up for a smoking minimix for Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 tastemaking show.
Framed as a retro arcade dreamscape “where the player is pulled into a virtual world of drum & bass” the second their quarter hits the slot, nothing can prepare you for the tidal wave of illness that Metrik unleashes as references from Mario Bros to Stranger Things represent alongside an insane rapid-fire mix of all your favorite dancefloor sizzlers. We’ll leave it up to the trainspotters to ID all the tunes being double- and triple-dropped into the mix with inimitable style, but suffice to say this 5:19 mix is the perfect way to kick in the afterburners as we begin to look ahead to the summertime feels on the horizon.
Whether it’s upfront, hands-in-the-air, head-banging anthems, dirty tech, or dreamy liquid that gets you moving, it’s all here in a high-octane soundscape guaranteed to blow a hole through that dome and get you hot and sweaty. Consider yourself warned.
