Hailing from the leafy suburbs of South West London is Ram Records’ Wilkinson. His first insight into making music came aged of 9 when his parents bought him a drum kit. Mark ‘Wilkinson’ joined a few bands 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. In his final year at college he tried his hand at making beats, leading him to buy 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's ’ Sick Music 2 compilation. A few months later he 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 HQ.
Fast forward a few years later and Wilkinson, now signed to Ram Records/Virgin EMI is being touted as of of the brightest new stars in dance music. Following his club anthems 'Tonight', 'Take You Higher’, ‘Need To Know’, 'Heartbeat and 'Too Close' and ‘Hit The Floor’ Wilkinson released 'Half Light' charting #20, Dirty Love which peaked at #10 and ‘Afterglow’ which became a top 5 hit on the UK Chart, selling 400,000 copies with 45 million Youtube views. His recent single ‘Hopelessly Coping’ peaked at #23 on the UK Top 40, whilst topping the Shazam and iTunes Electronic charts.
