Bio

Over the past few years in the music industry Liam Wilson has firmly established himself on the underground scene as an exciting young talent using his technical expertise. Gaining respect from Clubbers, Promoters and label owners alike, it is undeniable that he has a bright future in EDM.From cutting his teeth around the Manchester circuit and performing on the turntables at club nights such as GOODGREEF, RONG, and FIRE IT UP, using his unique blend of trance Liam has had the opportunity to perform alongside superstars such as, Eddie Halliwell, Judge Jules, Giuseppe Ottaviani, John O'Callaghan, Marco V, Richard Durand (just to name a few)! Since making his first moves into music production Liam has thrown trance fire onto the floors of the Goodgreef birthday events over the past four years including the huge 10 year decade celebration. Using his energy with every beat and interacting with the crowd this year Liam secured his residency at Manchester based club night RONG, (arguably the most exciting new Club night event) with a mind blowing closing set at their massive 1st Birthday!Playing tracks from across a broad musical spectrum each gig that Liam delivers is with ultimate perfection making the dance floor erupt, always a professional and a true performer!!In a very competitive industry it takes a lot to breakthrough and to shine amongst so many new artists but Liam seems to have made his mark within electronic dance music over the last couple of years, with layers of effects Liam is supported from the likes of Barry Almond (PFA, GOODGREEF and FIRE IT UP) together with Chris Hampshire at (RECOVERWORLD) marked as the one to watch in the up and coming category.At such an early stage in his solo production career he has marked his name and had support from almost every major trance artist around including; SIMON PATTERSON, SEAN T YAS, CHRIST OPHER LAWRENCE, ACT IVA, GIUSSEPPE OTTAVIANI, NICK SENTIENCE for his string of stunning productions. To add to the equation Liam has the right ingredients for his production skills which are polished and rival any established artist around. Liam's clear passion for music is mainly associated with the trance scene although he has been successful in cutting the edge already as an engineer with genre's such as house, techno and progressive house. Some of his tracks have made the top 5 on download portals such as Trackidown and Beatport using his undoubtedly ability to work a crowd.This all adds to his rising status and reputation as an undeniable crowd pulling artist that will inevitably go far as a masterful performer! With so many solo projects on the agenda this year including various trance releases, exciting new challenges and collaborations 2012 will be very busy!! You will be able to catch him at events all across the UK and IBIZA as well as his monthly Afterhours.fm 'MY ELEMENT' show which has been successfully running for the past three years!Expect big things to come from this young prodigy!
