Drum and Bass musician Krakota is back again with ‘Be The Reason’, his next release on Wilkinson’s Sleepless Music label.
The new track follows on from the superb ‘Take Me There’ released in April which received raves reviews and support from Sub Focus, Dimension, Hybrid Minds and Friction, not to mention getting airplay across Radio 1 from the likes of Annie Mac, Charlie Hedges, Rene LaVice & Jack Saunders. His next instalment comes in the form of ‘Be The Reason’ which he produced in South Africa before bringing it home to be mixed at Sleepless HQ Studio in London.
Krakota is a name most drum and bass fans will be familiar with through his steady slew of releases on Hospital Records. Since then he’s released music on UKF & Drum & Bass Arena before signing to long-time friend and star of the scene Wilkinson’s new Sleepless Music.
Listen to ‘Be The Reason’ by Krakota on the Official F1 Tracks Playlist on Spotify.
Wilkinson heard something in Krakota’s music and quickly moved to help develop his sound. Over the years he’s also found huge support from BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Adele Roberts & Rene Lavice as well as fellow producer/DJ’s Andy C, Friction, Sub focus and more.
His skills behind a production desk more than match up with those behind a mixer. Krakota’s mixes dig deep from the crates, whether that’s his three deck home studio set-up or out in front of seas of ravers, he is up there with the very best.
