WILKINSON (UK) - AUSTRALIA / NZ TOUR 2015
(with MC Ad-apt)

The golden boy of drum ‘n’ bass bounces through Australia and New Zealand this September.



A new-school star for drum ‘n’ bass straight out of South London, Mark Wilkinson’s distinctive productions and remixes have the international scene - fans and critics alike - utterly hooked. Lush, melodic and emotional, Wilkinson’s tunes have huge cross-over appeal: he dips into the realm of pop rock while still going in with hard ‘n’ fast beats and sizzling drops. Collaborations with Ed Sheeran and Katy B have further secured his pop crossover appeal, while his work with Nero, Chase & Status, and Naughty Boy have cemented his legitimacy in the d’n’b scene.

As a teenager Wilkinson carved out his way with releases on Hospital Records, before being handpicked by Andy C to join Andy’s RAM Records (Virgin / EMI) label. He’s already made the label very proud with several club anthems, including the hugely popular Afterglow, which charted in the Top 5 on the UK Charts, sold 400,000 copies and snagged 35 million Youtube views.

His subsequent debut, Lazers Not Included, went to #1 on the iTunes Dance chart in no less than ten (!) countries, leading to a huge demand for Wilkinson gigs around the world – he’s played massive festivals Glastonbury, Wireless, Reading, Leeds, and EDC Vegas, and has a sold-out debut UK live tour under his belt. UK radio elite Annie Mac and Zane Lowe have been singing his praises and premiering his tracks since day dot and he recently scooped the pool at the UK National Drum & Bass Awards, taking home gongs for ‘Best Single’, ‘Best Album’, ‘Best Video’, ‘Best Producer’ and ‘Best Live Act'.

He recently debuted a new live show at Electric Brixton (watch an official video from it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsS-KKHim6U) and as you can see, its an epic and electric undertaking that more than delivers on Wilkinson’s resume hype.

Wilkinson is the scene’s golden boy right now for very good reason - see why when he bounces through Australia and New Zealand. Wilkinson lets us in on what to expect of the shows: “After my album and Afterglow dropped, the shows have been really packed and there’s a great atmosphere out there. I’ll be representing my album, but also playing my favourite tunes from the wider drum ‘n’ bass genre. I’m getting my party set going. I’ll also be trying out some new music that isn’t out there yet, and road-testing that.”
