Songfacts®:

  • Mark Wilkinson is a British Drum and Bass music producer and DJ from South West London whose stage name is Wilkinson. At the age of 14 Wilkinson discovered his passion for Dance music, and by his final year at college he'd bought his first bits of production gear and had turned his bedroom into a studio. 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. By 2012, Wilkinson had remixed tunes by Chase & Status, Example, Nero, Professor Green and Wiley to critical acclaim and had won 'Best Breakthrough Producer' at that year's National D&B Awards. This single from his debut album, Lazer's Not Included was his first entry on the UK Singles chart.
  • The song features uncredited vocals by Becky Hill, who first came to the British public's attention when she reached the semi finals of the first series of The Voice before being eliminated. She also co-wrote and appears on Rudimental's Home track, "Powerless."
