Wilkinson’s new album, Hypnotic, set to follow his UK tour

Wilkinson’s new album, Hypnotic, set to follow his UK tour

February 17, 2017 | D&L

Wilkinson has announced the release of his second album release, Hypnotic and it will be here sooner than you think.

Set for a April 21st release, the news arrives as he comes to the end of his UK tour, bringing things to a close with a sold out London show at the Roundhouse tomorrow night.

Including the hit singles ‘Sweet Lies’ and ‘Brand New’ on the track listing, the project sees the South West London artist continue to smash the barriers when it comes to drum and bass. With his sound reflecting his own love for music, Wilkinson is known to blend the genres he grew up listening to, fusing them with Pop and the result; a sound he has become known and loved for. So what can we expect from this new release?

“I want to try different things, f*ck up the tempos and take a few risks,” he said.

“For me an album is the only way to truly do this and I’m personally very content and proud of this body of work. I feel like its my best yet. And my Mum rates it, so I’m good.”

As well as leading the way with his own sound, it’s no secret that Wilkinson likes to get behind new rising talent, with singers of the dance music scene often featured on his tracks. From Karen Harding and Matt Wills to remixing tracks from Wretch 32, Katy B and Ed Sheeran to name a few, tracks like ‘Say Something’ and ‘6 Words’ often become track favourites.

Hypnotic is the follow up to Wilkinson’s debut drop, Lazers Not Included, which reached the number one spot on the iTunes Dance chart and included the top 1o hit, ‘Afterglow’.
