Wilkinson has unveiled his brand new single, ‘I Need’ feat Hayla. The track follows a simply stellar 2018 schedule which has included a sold-out live show at the iconic Brixton Academy, as well as a fifth consecutive summer residency at Amnesia Ibiza’s ‘Together’ event series, and performances at Creamfields, Hideout, SW4, and Reading & Leeds Festival.
Released on Friday 12th October, ‘I Need’ (featuring the vocals of Hayla) adopts a slick half-time feel, as the South Londoner steps away from his usual drum & bass sound to showcase his diversity as a producer with something fresh and original-sounding.
Packed with his typically powerful production prowess, ‘I Need’ follows the release of Wilkinson’s Sub Focus collaboration ‘Take It Up’, as well as hit albums ‘Hypnotic’ and ‘Lazers Not Included’, with the UK producer cementing his place as one of the most popular British electronic talents of the past 5 years.
Wilkinson continues to release a flurry of club anthems and garner worldwide acclaim on account of his stunning LIVE shows, with the d&b producer selling over 20,000 tickets for his recent UK tour. Selling over 1.2m records so far, including the Gold-certified ‘Afterglow’ ‘Sweet Lies’, and top 10 hit ‘Dirty Love’, helping to catapult the genre back into primetime consciousness.
Proving his quality across remixes as well as original productions, Wilkinson has also reworked tracks for the likes of Ed Sheeran, The Prodigy, Becky Hill, Wretch 32 and Rag N Bone Man. With the release of ‘I Need’ to soon be followed by remixes from the likes of Icarus, and Metrik, the track is set to drop on 12th October and precedes Wilkinson’s upcoming tour with the producer set to play a series of dates across Europe & New Zealand.
