In conjunction with our friends Origin NYE and Horizons Touring, BBE are very excited to announce that UK DnB powerhouse Wilkinson will be playing an intimate headline show at OXFORD ART FACTORY in Sydney on Sunday 24 April (Anzac Day Eve) with MC AD-APT.
Hailing from South West London is RAM Records’ Wilkinson. His first insight into making music came aged 9 when his parents bought him a drum kit. Mark ‘Wilkinson’ joined a few bands playing at venues as far as the Birmingham NEC and as close as the local old peoples home. This swiftly ended at the age of 14 when Wilkinson discovered his passion for dance music. In his final year at college he tried his hand at making beats, leading him to buy his first bits of production gear and turning his bedroom into a studio.
Fast forward a few years later and Wilkinson, now signed to Ram Records/Virgin EMI is being touted as one of the brightest new stars in dance music. Following his club anthems ‘Tonight’, ‘Take You Higher’, ‘Need To Know’, ‘Heartbeat and ‘Too Close’ and ‘Hit The Floor’ Wilkinson released ‘Half Light’ charting #20, Dirty Love which peaked at #10 and ‘Afterglow’ which became a top 5 hit on the UK Chart, selling 400,000 copies with 45 million Youtube views. His recent single ‘Hopelessly Coping’ peaked at #23 on the UK Top 40, whilst topping the Shazam and iTunes Electronic charts. His debut album ‘Lazers Not Included’ went to number 1 on the iTunes Dance Chart in 10 countries and his tour schedule takes him across the globe.
