Exclusive Premiere: Wilkinson – Dirty Love



I think it’s fair to say, in D&B terms, 2013 was Wilkinson’s year. Ram Records‘ new poster boy had a top ten, 100,000+ selling single under his belt and delivered one of the 2013 biggest anthems in ‘Take You Higher’. After opening his Ram account with ‘Moonwalker’ almost three years ago he then blew us away with his debut album, Lazers Not Included. 

An ear for a catchy lead riff is something Wilkinson is most certainly in possession of, evidenced by his already illustrious back catalog; he’s come a long way since first coming to our attention as an unknown and unlisted dub in Andy C’s set from Radio 1’s Hackney Weekender and quickly became a favourite of us here at DT HQ. One thing you can bet on Wilkinson to give you is a supremely crafted dance floor workout and Dirty Love is exactly that Wilkinson is back with a brand new single – Dirty Love featuring Talay Riley which will arrive via RAM/Virgin EMI September 22.

With remixes set to come from TC, BMB Spacekid, No Artificial Colours and Mark Knight over the next few weeks we’ve got the honour of treating you to the original as first revealed by Mistajam’s 1Xtra show last night. With a big summer ahead of him as he flies the flag for UK D&B, Wilkinson will showcase Dirty Love as well as Lazers Not Included over a series of massive back to back shows across Europe including huge festival appearances at Reading and Leeds, Global Gathering, SW4 and Creamfields where we’ll sure that his new single will set the crowds off. Check out one of the tunes of the summer here first! 

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
