Will Hine AKA Whiney is a prime example of how Med School keep to their key ethos - to bring through and nurture the very best in the next generation of producers. At just 21 years old, he’s already gained a reputation amongst esteemed tastemakers, including label boss London Elektricity and BBC Radio 1’s Friction, for contributing stand-out moments on various compilations. Take 'Komodo' on ‘Hospitality 2016’, 'Nightfall' on ‘Ten Years Of Med School' and 'Guardian' on S.P.Y’s ‘Hospital Mixtape’ to start. Now two years on Whiney steps into the limelight with his own artist defining, solo EP ‘Stranger Tides’.
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.
Whiney’s productions are built on solid foundations, his love for the creative process spreads throughout, fuelling his tracks with an array of cheeky quirks. His DJ sets also bring that surefire element of fun to the dancefloor. He's been packing in huge crowds world over, receiving a warm welcome in Europe at Med School label nights, Liquicity showcases and the massive D+B-centric festival Let It Roll.
