Hailing from the leafy suburbs of South West London is Ram Records’ Wilkinson. His first insight into making music came at the age of 9 when his parents bought him a drum kit. Mark ‘Wilkinson’ joined a few bands and was 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 amongst other things.

In his final year at college Wilkinson tried his hand at making beats in the college studio, this lead to him buying his first bits of production gear and turning his bedroom into a studio. A few years and part time jobs later, after driving his family mad with large amounts of bass loosening the brickwork of his house Mark secured himself a studio not far from his home.

After fine-tuning his production skills, Wilkinson passed a few songs on to Hospital Records via Cyantific, which led to his first release on Hospital Records’ ‘Sick Music 2′ compilation. A few months later Wilkinson sent a folder of tunes to Ram Records and within days received a phone call from Andy C inviting him for a meeting at the Ram Records HQ.

October 2010 saw three of Wilkinson’s songs featured on Andy C’s ‘Nightlife 5′ album and releases including Moonwalker’ / ‘Samurai’, ‘Refuge’, ‘Get Into It’ and the mighty ‘Everytime’ / ‘Overdose’ doing damage across dance-floors worldwide, winning fans from Skream, MistaJam, Chase & Status and High Contrast in the process.

Since then Mark won the ‘Best Breakthrough Producer’ award at the National D&B Awards 2012 and has remixed Chase & Status, Example, Nero, Professor Green, Wiley and Jess Mills to much critical acclaim. He’s also currently working on production projects for Mercury and Island Records. 2012 saw Wilkinson up the levels once more, releasing the mighty ‘Automatic’ in the summer, followed by the hit record ‘Need To Know’ feat. Iman which topped the iTunes Electronic Chart, was championed by the likes ofZane Lowe, Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw, was Sara Cox’s daytime Record Of The Week and spent 4 weeks on the Radio 1 playlist.

Now hotly tipped to do big things across drum & bass and electronica, Wilkinson is set to release his next single ‘Take You Higher’ and his debut album on Ram Records titled ‘Say No To Lazers’. He continues to tour worldwide from Sydney to Berlin, Barcelona to Brighton with his dynamic and energetic DJ sets. Wilkinson is one to watch for 2013.

SHOCKONE & MC XSESSIV
.::UNIVERSUS ALBUM TOUR::.

Hot on the heels of his long awaited album “UNIVERSUS,” ShockOne returns to Melbourne to complete the promise of elevating himself with each recording. This is the big one…

Thursday April 25th (ANZAC Day) @ The Liberty Social, Melbourne

Supported by
J.Nitrous / Illusiv (WA) / Monkee / Datura / FA

Tickets available from Moshtix

———————————————————————————–

ShockOne is back in storming form, with his killer debut album ‘Universus’. Australian-born Karl Thomas released his first EP as ShockOne in 2009 which featured the smash hit ‘Polygon’ and the experimental Dubstep anthem, ‘Adachigahara’s Theme’. Since then he has been behind a string of successful singles that have seen Beatport and iTunes number ones, YouTube hits by the millions, as well as support from influential industry tastemakers such as: Triple J, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Pendulum, Knife Party, Matrix & Futurebound, Sub Focus, and Chase & Status.

The album opens up with ‘Chaos Theory’, the latest in ShockOne’s array of chart storming singles that he has unleashed on the Bass music community. Having already ranked #1 on iTunes Australia’s dance charts and racking up close to million views on YouTube, Chaos Theory’s screaming basslines and hard hitting beats have already cemented ShockOne’s place as one of Australia’s premiere bass producers. The ascending synths of ‘Chaos Theory’ prevail, while an epic film trailer-voice pushes punters towards the dancefloor.

Next up is ‘Harmonize’, an uplifting D&B workout with an eastern tinge. Grimey undercurrents complement tearing beats, causing severe dancefloor damage. Moving on, we get into ‘Big Bounce’, a funky jolting contrast from the first few tracks of the album. At first, swaggering bass works closely with chopped up funk synths and off beat drum patterns. Then mid-track, we drop into an epic, arpeggiated keyboard solo, displaying subtlety and refinement, before dropping back into the meat of the 4/4 take, on ShockOne’s sound. ‘Lose Control’ doesn’t take much imagination to know where this one is headed. With vocoder vocals leading up to the drop and a funky, head-nodding bassline, watch out for the ‘sign of the horns’ on the dancefloor!

Mid-album is ‘Crucify Me’, an epic D&B adventure with fellow-Australian, Phetsta along for the ride. Successfully released as a two part single in 2011, this mini D&B saga has already been a festival favourite since its release. Next we have ‘Universes’ (with an “e”). Taking its name from the album title, this vocal anthem features the beautiful vocals of ShockOne’s sister, Reija Lee, as well as Phetsta once again on the production collaboration. The frenetic sirens and rap vocals of Kyza instantly alert the listener that ‘Lazerbeam’ is going to be a heavy dancefloor smasher once it drops. Perfectly capturing the sounds of today’s Drum & Bass, this is the
apex predator of 2013!

Switching gears, ‘Infinity’s Silence’ delivers vintage ShockOne in its truest form, with signature chopped up vocals and a bouncy bassline. Taking us into Dubstep territory, ‘Relapse’ features an epic melody and emotive vocals from Sam Nafie. Previously released as a single, ‘Relapse’ has already registered over 1 million YouTube hits since its release. Once again, ShockOne cranks up the energy with ‘Age of Enlightenment’. Destined to be a clap-along favourite at festivals, this one is sure to keep crowd jumping. To finish off the LP, we are softly brought back down to ground level, with a beautiful euphoric outro, ‘Light Cycles’. An epic journey through the cosmos, ‘Light Cycles’ truly shows the range of ShockOne’s producing skills in what will likely be pegged as the crown jewel of ‘Universus’ when all is said and done.

EPTIC

19 year old Belgian prodigy, Eptic has been causing a bit of a stir in the bass scene. Since his debut signing to Never Say Die Records with the ‘Like A Boss’ EP that went straight to the top 5 on the Beatport dubstep charts, he instantly proved his caliber, gaining an insight in to just how big this musical personality will get.

Since, he has moved on to collaborate with artists such as Habstrakt which resulted in ‘Ninja Challenge’ that was featured in this year’s Never Say Die and UKF album mixed by SKisM alongside names like Skrillex, Flux Pavilion, Foreign Beggars and more.

With a remix for SKisM under his belt and signings to Ministry of Sound and Sony, his 4.5 million views on YouTube come as no surprise. The 19-year-old wunderkind has been tearing up the systems of some of the best clubs and festivals on the globe with the demand for his appearance at notable promotions rapidly up scaling. No doubt this talented Belgian is becoming a prominent figure in bass music.
