Ex-Northbrook Student Dismantle – Free Download

Will Knighton aka Dismantle is an ex-Northbrook music production student, he has a free download out now on Digital Soundboy.

Brighton based Will Knighton is regarded as one of the most hotly tipped young producers and DJʼs to emerge from the UK Bass scene. Blurring the lines between house, dubstep and Dutch techno, Dismantle was catapulted into the limelight after his massive ʻComputationʼ track, getting hammered by the likes of Annie Mac, Diplo, Skream, Zane Lowe, Mista Jam, Toddla T and all the key tastes makers. Since then he continues to run his own label ʻGangoon Dubzʼ and has released on Gold Rush, Wheel N Deal and Caspaʼs Dub Police imprint.

2012 saw Dismantle sign to Shy FXʼs Digital Soundboy label and release his critically acclaimed ʻWarp EPʼ in July. Will also turned out massive remixes for Toddla T on Ninja Tune and more recently his brilliant re-work of A-Trak & Zincʼs ʻLike The Dancefloorʼ on Fools Gold/Rinse, not to mention cementing himself as a firm festival favorite with killer performances at Ibiza Rocks, Outlook, Lovebox, Glastonbury, Bestival, ADE & Global Gathering to name a few.
Oct 2012 saw Will host a 4 week residency on BBC 1Xtra as part of the BBCʼs Xtra Talent program and he also guested on Radio 1ʼs Diplo & Friends show.

Already a firm favourite with the likes of Diplo, Annie Mac, Skrillex, Mista Jam and Skream, 2013 has seen Will already remix the likes of Sub Focus and a collaboration with Major Lazer and No Doubt, not to mention cementing his new residency on Rinse FM.
