Wiwek is heading to our shores for his very first Australian tour. Wiwek (pronounced Oui-Wack) fuses electronic elements with tropical rhythms to create distinctive and refreshing productions. He is renowned for creating and championing the Jungle Terror genre, a combination of Dutch House with synths, steel drums, tropical bass kicks and jungle noises in one lush sound.
In April 2012 he released his EP 'Totem' on Mad Decent, a wild mix of hard-hitting drums and suspenseful builds that instantly sends the dance floor into a frenzy – and the pace hasn't slowed down since. He has also had great success with 'Intimi' & 'Ritual' released on Mixmash and 'Angrybirdz' on Rimbu, the label he co-owns with Gregor Salto, as well as 'Terminator' (with Moska) on Mad Decent in 2013.
2014 started with a smash for Wiwek, dropping his tune 'Salute' on Tiesto's label Musical Freedom & 'G.M.A.F.B.'on Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike's Smash the House. One of his latest tunes 'On your Mark' with Gregor Salto was one the most played tunes at Ultra 2014 and in total 8 different Wiwek tunes were played at Ultra 2014. This created a huge buzz and resulted in being the support act for Diplo, David Guetta and Snake at XS Las Vegas.
Wiwek is releasing on labels from heavy hitters like Tiësto, Diplo, Chris Lake & Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike to name a few and is not planning to slow down. His latest remix job is a collaboration with 'Major Lazer' for Davido (Nominated as African artist of the year by MTV). The remix received 500,000 plays on Soundcloud before it was even released.
With new music coming out on OWSLA and a Skrillex collaboration due out this year, you don't want to miss Wiwek's Jungle Terror in Australia this April. Full dates below
