WICK-IT THE INSTIGATOR
Ask anyone who’s seen him live and they’ll tell you that Wick-it puts on one of the most high-energy, original and entertaining live shows you’ve ever seen. With successful headlining shows everywhere from California to Alabama, it is clear that the rest of the nation is taking note as well.
What makes Wick-it so special begins in the studio. Starting in 2010 with his groundbreaking Big Boi vs. Black Keys mashup album The Brothers of Chico Dusty, Wick-it’s thoughtfully fresh remixes have earned him a reputation amongst listeners as a producer that only puts out the highest quality of tracks. His ability to deliver in a multitude of styles earned him recent support slots for acts like: Pretty Lights, Ghostland Observatory, Big Boi, Skrillex, Porter Robinson, MiM0SA, Three 6 Mafia, Yelawolf, PANTyRAiD, Girl Talk, SKisM, Borgore, Zoogma, Perpetual Groove, NiT GriT, and Zeds Dead.
One of the secrets behind his fan base’s rabid loyalty is that, although a handful of his tracks have recently been released under labels (and charted on Beatport), the majority of his music is available for free download on his SoundCloud page. With almost 2,000,000 plays and 500,000 downloads, it is clear people simply can’t get enough Wick-it. His musical approach is tough to pinpoint given that his roots are in hip-hop, but elements of dubstep, rock and house music have all made their way into his repertoire.
