The single, out 24th February through RAM/Virgin, follows the Top 10 smash Afterglow, the biggest D&B breakthrough tune of the year which has now sold over 200,000 copies in the UK alone and spent 5 weeks inside the top 20. Too Close, with it’s intricate dub break, showcases Tabitha Benjamin’s, aka Detour City vocals, and is sure to be another cross-over hit for Wilkinson. Already playlisted at Radio 1, 1xtra and Capital FM, Too Close is steadily climbing the airplay charts weeks up front of release.
Wilkinson has been on unstoppable form since the release of Need To Know at the beginning of the year. Heartbeat, featuring Arlissa and P Money, followed in May, and paved the way for the Afterglow, featuring the vocals of Becky Hill. The tune was a huge success and a regular sound in the clubs hammered up and down the country by the likes of Chase & Status, Sub Focus, Andy C and High Contrast among others. Playlisted across Radio 1, 1Xtra, Kiss, Capital, Capital Xtra and Rinse, the video, which has had over 7 million views, can be seen here.
