Summer is almost here, and Metrik is paving the way to festival season with this heavyweight single dropping on the Hospital Records family. Able to flex on the liquid tip as much as he can sizzle on the rinse-out chest-thumpers, Metrik digs deep into tech territory for his latest salvo and goes all in with inimitable results.
Aptly titled “Hackers,” Metrik’s untethered stepper is sure to be bubbling on sound systems all summer long, as support is already raining in from the likes of Andy C, Wilkinson, Sub Focus, and Dimension. Channeling the heat-seeking finesse of previous hits like “We Got It,” “Want My Love,” “Fatso” and “Tension,” Metrik opens with an eerie atmosphere that channels the cinematic fervor of those previous bits before sweeping into an insistent groove at the core that unlocks the full power of the tune.
It’s deceptively subtle in its flow, with expertly crafted layers that accumulate throughout, making for a tune that can ring in the sunrise just as much as it can kick in the afterburners at the midnight hour. With even more heaters in the pipeline from both Metrik and Hospital set to drop soon, use this one to gear up for the long, hot summer ahead.
Available April 5 via Hospital Records.
