Originally from Leicester Wibbly started producing at the age of 15 after being in a band through his youth. It wasn’t until the age of 19 after studying music technology he really began to get a feel for building a track from top to bottom. His main influence is UKG but does take from Grime and Dubstep as well after building his vinyl collection across the 3 genres.
2018 was the year he started to get some self released material out as well as a bootleg of ‘The Calling’ which he received glowing feedback from Chris Lorenzo and Chris Lake at the time. ‘Vessel’ was one of his first original tracks which really set the foundations for his sound. Support has come from the likes of Jack Junior up to now on his other tracks but with ‘Distant’ being his first official release and the ‘4 Weeks Of 1Forty’ shining the spotlight on some hidden gems this release will provide the platform to push on.
This has been Wibbly’s first time working with a vocalist, and what better way to get off the mark than with Dakota Sixx. An unsigned vocalist and songwriter originally haling from Birmingham. Shortly after relocating to London four years ago, Dakota released her first solo project ‘Innocence’ which received support from BBC 1Xtra, Nest HQ, Mixmag and Complex.
Since the success of her first project, Dakota has released music through labels such as Second To None Music, The Sound of Everything, 877 Records, BRØKEN, Saucy Records and now 1Forty. Dakota’s previous releases have also received support from DJ Q, Jamz Supernova, Marcus Nasty and many more!
In 2018, Dakota appeared on tracks for artists such as Star.One, Capo Lee, Affiliate and Mind of a Dragon. Whilst there are many more exciting collaborations lined up for 2019, Dakota’s main focus for this year will be on solo projects that showcase her broader taste in songwriting and genres.
