Wilkinson fans were in for a treat last week, celebrating the release of his hit single "Flatline" ft. Wretch 32, the drum and base singer ended his UK tour, with a smash performance at the 02 Forum, Kentish Town.

Hundreds of sweaty ravers packed inside the venue, ages ranging from 14 to 40  to see the man in action. With strobe, flashing lights and smoke explosions (typical of a sick Wilkinson gig) each and every person inside the building sang lyrics back to the producer/DJ for 1 straight hour.

Smash single "Afterglow" caused a riot within the crowd, with a serge of screams once the baseline dropped. Though released back in 2013, "Afterglow" still remains a dance-floor banger, with the entire place moshing to the hit single.

If Wilkinson's energy wasn't enough for fans, he treated the crowd to a special performance of new single "Flatline" with Wretch 32 who ran out onto the stage for an incredible live rendition.

One complaint Mr Wilkinson, we wanted more .. one hour of your tunes isn't long enough!

This week that handy little app for music news - 02 Tracks, has formulated a nice and informative BRIT AWARDS information bullet for us all. With the likes of Rudimental and Ellie Goulding having confirmed performances, this year is set to be a brilliant one.

We've got some sneaky quotes from the artists; but you can download the podcast from the link below.

Rudimental BRIT hopeful No. 1 'Waiting All Night' was finished of in a hotel room in Glasgow. "Influenced by festival vibe, being out on the road, on tour. We were looking for he right vocalist and when we found Ella it was the perfect match, she made it sound beautiful and sexy. We've always said that the fans and the crowd played a huge part in 'Waiting All Night' - We used the live audio from one of our gigs on there so you might hear yourself." "You can imagine being at a festival and you've lost all your mates, your fav song comes on and suddenly you're at home with your hands in the air."

Ellie Goulding and Calvin Harris sizzle in 'Need Your Love. "He's gotten really good looking! He's spent a lot of time in LA, got a tan, buffed out. He eats really well, he loves an omlette!" "Normally it's just really raunchy and sexy but with Calvin and me in this video, it's like real love - affectionate, touchy, huggy. He's silly and funny and we take the mickey out of each other. If we'd licked each other suddenly that would "

John Newman Best British Single / Best British Solo Artist "The BRITS is like Glasto, that's your live, BRITs is your recorded stuff. If I get it for a year of hard work, it'd be lovely, but I'm enjoying my life, I don't need to win the BRITS. I've had a brilliant year as it is."

Rizzle Kicks chose R.Kelly's 'Remix To Ignition as their favourite song of all time.
Naughty Boy: "Ace of Base's 'All That She Wants' is one of the best pop songs ever! Someone should really revisit that sound, actually I shouldn't say that, I'm just going to revisit it myself. That great 90s sound could really come back in a big way!"
Nicole Sherzinger: "I love Bob Marley's '3 Little Birds' because I don't want to worry about a thing I want to pretend I'm on an island somewhere chillaxing, catching some rays and feeling good'
