Hospital Records' latest signing has a lot to live up to. With previous proteges reaching international stardom thanks to a combination of blisteringly upfront sounds and huge live Hospitality shows, Metrik has let himself into a whole heap of expectations. Thankfully his EP stands him in good stead to take on such a heavy crown, with a 50/50 split of dancefloor smashers and more radio-friendly outbursts of energy. It's an EP filled with nods to his contemporaries and slices of his own hyperactive sound, from head-nodder "Out Of The Fire" to skank-along video nasty "Solar", his talents are there for all to see. Last track "Distant Shores" is a work of magic. Expect big things.
