Metrik’s highly anticipated second album ‘LIFE/THRILLS’ released on Hospital Records is an exhilarating and flawlessly executed evolution of his signature sound. Under the banner of drum & bass it draws on his love for film soundtracks, synthwave, neo-soul and the Japanese pop sub-genre, Shibuya-kei and includes collaborations with Elisabeth Troy, NAMGAWD, Roméo Testa, Ragga Twins, Rothwell and Reija Lee.
‘Electric Echo’, a collaboration with Fightstar’s Dan Haigh and Alex Westaway’s synthwave side project Gunship, encapsulates the ethos of the album merging the unfamiliar with D&B sensibilities to create a fresh and exciting new sound. We also welcome the return of Elisabeth Troy in ‘Chasing Sunrise’ and Reija Lee in ‘Cadence’ making for two powerful vocal highlights on the record. For those of a purist nature, fear not; Metrik’s sophomore album is one hundred percent drum & bass and he hasn’t forgotten about the dancefloor. Bangers like ‘Western Jam’, ‘Fatso’ and ‘Destination Earth’ make up a serious proportion of the album’s generous fifteen tracks and reinforce his status as one of the heaviest producers on the block.
Over the past year Metrik has travelled the world representing drum & bass at major festivals of all denominations; from Glastonbury and Global Gathering to Outlook and EDC Las Vegas. All the while crafting remixes for the likes of DJ Fresh, Ellie Goulding, Gorgon City and Martin Garrix, and collaborating with fellow D&B superstars TC and Netsky. Fans of his UK Dance Chart Top 20 debut ‘Universal Language’ will find plenty to love here however its Metrik’s devotion to creating a fresh and thrilling strain of drum & bass that stands to bring in a new audience and earmark ‘LIFE/THRILLS’ for instant classic status.

Celebrating milestones of the cannabis industry
In October 2015, one of the biggest names in the cannabis industry celebrated two huge milestones. Check out this special report from Cannabis News Network.
30 years of Sensi Seeds
On Thursday the 8th of October 2015, important figures from the Spain and international cannabis communities gathered in the Hash Marihuana Cáñamo & Hemp Museum of Barcelona, for the opening of a special exhibition: ‘Grow On: 30 years of Sensi Seeds’.
Sensi Seeds was founded in 1985 by cannabis entrepreneur and visionary Ben Dronkers, who also founded the Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum in Amsterdam and Barcelona, and the industrial hemp factory HempFlax. This year, Sensi Seeds, which grew to become the largest cannabis genetics seed bank in the world, is celebrating its 30th anniversary, with among other things, a very special exhibition in their Barcelona museum.
The exposition displays the rich history of this famous company that created legendary cannabis strains such as Jack Herer, Black Domina, Skunk #1 and Northern Lights. ‘Grow On: 30 years of Sensi Seeds’ will be open to visitors until May 1st, 2016.
HempFlax invested 5 million euros in Romania
And there was more to celebrate for Sensi Seeds. On the 16th of October, its sister company HempFlax opened a brand new factory in Romania. A new and very special chapter for the company that aimed to relaunch the European hemp industry 20 years ago, and is successfully doing so.
The future is looking bright!
