This one is a big one for me. I’ve been a huge fan of the UK Trio since I first heard them a while back and I’m finally stoked to catch them live.Wildkats are a production collective formed in East London when Edinburgh DJ’s Stuart Sandeman & Scott Dickie met US import Corey Baker.
Pulling influences from 80s Funk and New York Disco they began to develop their sound; an energetic combination of groove led house and dubby disco with their trademark Wildkat bassline. Inspired by the new wave of contemporary house music fusing 80s drums, synths and bass sounds, Wildkats have put their own stamp on this with their catchy edits and raw dance floor killers.
Since their inception last summer their tracks have caught the attention of some of the biggest names in the dance music community with support coming from Hot Natured, Wolf + Lamb, Crosstown Rebels, Lee Curtiss, Droog, Jamie Jones, M A N I K and Soul Clap.
