Will Knighton aka Dismantle is an ex-Northbrook music production student who is setting tongues wagging on the UK bass scene.
Brighton based Will Knighton is regarded as one of the most hotly tipped young producers and DJʼs to emerge from the UK Bass scene of late. Blurring the lines between house, dubstep and Dutch techno, Dismantle was catapulted into the limelight after his massive ʻComputationʼ track received immense radio play by the likes of Annie Mac, Diplo, Skream, Zane Lowe, Mista Jam, Toddla T. Since then he has continued to run his own label ʻGangoon Dubzʼ and has also released music on Gold Rush, Wheel N Deal and Caspaʼs Dub Police imprint.
In 2012, Dismantle signed to Shy FXʼs Digital Soundboy label and released his critically acclaimed ʻWarp EPʼ. He produced massive remixes for Toddla T on Ninja Tune and more recently re-worked A-Trak & Zincʼs ʻLike The Dancefloorʼ on Fools Gold/Rinse. He has cemented himself as a firm festival favourite with killer performances at Ibiza Rocks, Outlook, Lovebox, Glastonbury, Bestival, ADE & Global Gathering to name a few.
Will hosted a 4 week residency on BBC 1Xtra as part of the BBCʼs Xtra Talent program in October 2012 and was also a guest on Radio 1ʼs Diplo & Friends show.
More recently, Will has produced a remix for Sub Focus and collaborated with Major Lazer and No Doubt and is bedding into his new residency on Rinse FM. He has a free download out now on Digital Soundboy.
