Whiney, Coventry-born Will Hine has developed an impressive skill set, successfully carving out his signature sound and passion for drum and bass. With over twelve years spent in choirs and orchestras and not to mention his grade eight achievements in both violin and piano, it was inevitable that music was going to play a prominent part in Will’s future. At a mere eleven years old he discovered his love for drum & bass through Pendulum’s ‘Slam’. With his eyes and ears opened to wider musical possibilities he rinsed through their back catalogue and became inspired to create the music he’d become surrounded by.
Since then he’s come a long way with his debut release on Subsphere Recordings back in 2012 – an exquisite collaboration with Keeno, the “Sweetest Sin” EP. Although no stranger to the Med School courtyard, Whiney’s already had a number of releases on both Hospital Records and Med School, featuring twice on the “New Blood” compilation series and Hospital’s “Sick Music 3″ and “Hospitality 2015″ album.
Whiney’s next offering was his ‘Stranger Tides EP’, released at the end of 2016. Opener ‘Moondance’ paves the way bringing high-energy to the surface. If ‘Teddy’s Gate’, released on the Skrillex founded Nest HQ, tugged your heart strings then roll onto title track ‘Stranger Tides’ with spacey vocal textures and ice-cold synths. Fans of his 2016 high-flyer ‘Komodo’ will fall hard for its brutal brother ‘On The Rocks’. Fearless bass with a sneak of trance-esque intensity matches up with his new techy tornado ‘Onyx’ – dancefloor obliteration is unavoidable with these two.
