It’s the 3rd of his solo releases on his new imprint Sleepless Music.
International dance monolith Wilkinson returns with new single ‘If You Want It’, out 17th September on his own Sleepless Music label.
Centering around the most alluring of Childish Gambino samples, ‘If You Want It’ is a contemporary D&B track destined to continue Wilkinson and Sleepless Music’s ventures into bold, exciting new avenues. It becomes the latest release on Sleepless Music, an imprint that has been set up to ensure that the music always comes first for performing artists and DJs, following on from ‘Keep Dancing’ and ‘Frontline’, tracks that have amassed over 5 million streams. The label has also released music from the likes of New Zealand’s finest Montell2099 and UK club-favourite Krakota to rapturous acclaim.
A typically prolific 2021 has seen Wilkinson remix international electronic lynchpin Diplo and fellow D&B titan Sub Focus, plus take a trip to New Zealand were he became the fastest electronic act to sell out a tour in the country’s history. Further headline performances at Return II Dance, Radio 1 Dance Weekend and a special performance at the McLarens Silverstone Grand Prix afterparty are but a few moments of note in what has been another whirlwind year for the legendary producer & DJ.
One of the most recognisable names from the world of D&B, Wilkinson has sold out Brixton Academy twice, amassed half a billion streams across his back catalogue, worked with artists such as Naughty Boy, Laura Mvula, Wretch 32, Jem Cooke and Karen Harding, and even scored a platinum UK ‘Top 10’ hit with 2013 smash single ‘Afterglow’ featuring Becky Hill. He is also the #1 D&B artist in the world this year in terms of both streaming and ticket sales.
Last year saw him collaborating with Sub Focus, with the pair shifting their sound towards something altogether more melodic and introspective. Their debut collaborative album Portals hit the #1 spot on the OCC Dance Albums, with tastemaker platform UKF describing it as “the truest album they could have created”.
‘If You Want It’ is an invigorating slice of fresh dance ingenuity and yet another strength for the worlds most listened to D&B artist.
