Hailing from the leafy suburbs of South West London is Ram Records' Wilkinson. His first insight into making music came at the age of 9 when his parents bought him a drum kit. Mark 'Wilkinson' joined a few bands and was 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 whenWilkinson discovered his passion for dance music amongst other things.

In his final year at college Wilkinson tried his hand at making beats in the college studio, this lead to him buying 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 Records' 'Sick Music 2' compilation. A few months later Wilkinson sent a folder of tunes to Ram Records and within days received a phone call from Andy Cinviting him for a meeting at the Ram Records HQ.

October 2010 saw three of Wilkinson's songs featured onAndy C's 'Nightlife 5' album and releases including'Moonwalker' / 'Samurai', 'Refuge', 'Get Into It' and the mighty 'Everytime' / 'Overdose' doing damage across dance-floors worldwide, winning fans from Skream, Mista Jam, Chase & Status and High Contrast in the process.

Since then Mark won the 'Best Breakthrough Producer' award at the National D&B Awards 2012 and has remixedChase & Status, Example, Nero, Professor Green, Wileyand Jess Mills to much critical acclaim. He's also currently working on production projects for Mercury and Island Records. 2012 saw Wilkinson up the levels once more, releasing the mighty 'Automatic' in the summer, followed by the hit record 'Need To Know' feat. Iman which topped theiTunes Electronic Chart, was championed by the likes ofZane Lowe, Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw, was Sara Cox's daytime Record Of The Week and spent 4 weeks on theRadio 1 playlist.

Now hotly tipped to do big things across drum & bass and electronica, Wilkinson is set to release his next single 'Take You Higher' and his debut album on Ram Records titled 'Say No To Lazers'. He continues to tour worldwide from Sydney to Berlin, Barcelona to Brighton with his dynamic and energetic DJ sets. One to watch for 2013. 

S.P.Y [Hospital Records]

2013 is the golden year for S.P.Y, aka Carlos Lima, the DJ and producer with a career firmly rooted in the underground drum and bass scene. After signing to heavyweight label Hospital Records in 2012, S.P.Y has moved from strength to strength bringing his trademark heavy, soulful sound to the masses. His debut LP, 'What The Future Holds' was released on Hospital Records the same year to critical acclaim. The LP not only received significant support from fellow artists and topped online sales charts, but was also awarded the coveted 'Best Album' at the annual 2012 Drum & Bass Arena awards.

Moving to London from Sao Paulo ten years ago, S.P.Y was quick to establish himself within the UK drum and bass scene. After six months of working with only basic equipment, S.P.Y's natural talent for production saw his first ever release signed to Metalheadz in 2005. Discovered by Goldie himself, ‘Till Dawn’ was featured on the 'Winter Of Content' compilation and was a key indication of the quality of things to come.

Moving into 2013 S.P.Y is once again touring the globe and busy in the studio. His remix of James Zabiela's 'Perseverance' has been a huge success, in addition to his collaboration with Nu:Logic 'Start Again', which was included on their debut album. The summer season sees S.P.Y playing big-name festivals such as Parklife, Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland, Global Gathering and Love Box and working on his forthcoming second LP, to be released on Hospital Records. The future is holding great things for S.P.Y and his growing global fan base and outstanding reputation are testament to this.
