METRIK

#DRUMNBASS

From its earliest incarnations the music was about forward-thinking musicians pushing the envelope of what was technologically possible. At a young age Metrik found himself pulled into D&B’s magnetism, drawn in by its clinical precision and emotive compositions. Within this world he discovered a deep resonance with the pairing of man and machine. A marriage of man-made instruments manipulated by samplers, computers and effects plugins; overlaid with synthetic noises comprised of ones and zeros. That resonance gave him an unshakeable conviction and set the course for the rest of his life, taking him from setting up an online radio station in his bedroom to performing on the world’s biggest festival stages.
