Tom Mundell better known as 'Metrik' is the jack of all trades. From exhilarating drum and bass to the realms of house music, he's musicality has no boundaries. With an eclectic source of inspiration from everything from synth pop to classical he ventured into producing his own music. In 2008, he released the wildly contagious track, 'Your World' which got a great response from fellow DJs and also started a quickly growing fan base. Shortly after, his next effort 'Technicolour' was released and supported by Radio One giants, Annie Mac and Zane Lowe.
Working tirelessly over the years in harnessing his own sound and taking big risks paid off for the multi-talented DJ. He released two EPs on Viper Recordings including the 'Between Worlds EP' which featured one of his biggest tracks to date, 'T-2000'. With more productions under his belt, fellow artists from an array of different genres began to notice his work and enlisted him to remix their songs. The A-list includes the likes of Eric Prydz, Swedish House Mafia, Skepta, Sub Focus, DJ Fresh, Ellie Goulding, Gorgon City, Dirtyphonics etc.
Amongst all of the work, he released his self-titled EP which sparked major support from his labelmates and fans alike. The success from the EP opened up more commercial opportunities in radio resulting in him joining the BBC Radio family on 1Xtra. With a major residency alongside Crissy Cris and worldwide recognition of his music the next natural progression was a tour. He kicked off a lengthy worldwide tour and closed out 2013 on a high note. With accolades and praise circulating in his career, he carved out his own spot in drum and bass royalty.
If 2013 wasn't busy enough, 2014 marked a lot of changes for the talented DJ. He re-focused on the one project he hadn't attacked yet; The all-mighty, LP. Metrik exclusively signed to Hospital Records in 2014 and ferociously cultivated a soundscape for his highly-anticipated debut album, 'Universal Language'. Both of his singles released, 'Want My Love' ft. Elisabeth Troy and 'Human Again' ft. Jan Burton had great success on the music charts peaking at #31 and #13 respectively. The debut album itself showed his growth as a producer. His keen understanding of the importance of editing along with creating a cohesive piece was undeniable. Music is subjective but the appropriately titled, 'Universal Language' made it a stand out album of the year.
With his residency at BBC Radio, his own tour and a 14 date Hospitality North American tour alongside Nu:Tone, Etherwood and Dynamite MC, Metrik has no plans of slowing down. Luckily, that Hospitality date stops in Toronto as part of Destiny's 5th annual Bassweek festivities! Catch Metrik at The Phoenix Concert Theatre and get ready for a night of sheer pandemonium!
