Will Atkinson is an entity that congers up futuristic soundscapes for the jilted generation. Responsible for over 100 BBC Radio 1 airplays and 6 Beatport number 1s the kid that began mixing records at the age of 7 has certainly come of age. It’s no wonder therefore that with this level of hype that the BBC have now asked Will to join their illustrious Radio 1 line up, as one of their new residents presenting a series of monthly shows that kick off in July of this year.
Will’s discography is quite simply a long list of hit records. “Pat Butcher”, “Victims”, “Numb The Pain”, “Subconscious”, “Mesmerize” (ft Rowetta from The Happy Mondays), “The Gamer Changer”, “Fresh Meat”……. all genre defining, chart topping, iconic titles that set the bar uncomfortably high for Will’s peers to try and follow. Having released on all of the scene’s coolest labels including Subculture, Kearnage, FSOE, Spinnin’, Armada, Perfecto Fluoro and Vandit – the demand for Will’s production skills is truly rampant.
His tour schedule reads like a catalogue of the coolest festivals and clubs in the world with a residency at Cream Ibiza 2017 and regular peak time slots at EDC Vegas, EDC Mexico, Dreamstate all over the US, Beyond Wonderland, Creamfields, Luminosity, BAT Buenos Aires, Subculture Australia, Earthcore, ASOT and many more.
