It's out in Sept, so hopefully we have an Indian Summer to rave to!"Karen added: "I love to work on different music styles so was very excited when i got the opportunity to work with, and co-write "Sweet Lies" with Wilkinson.

London resident Mark Wilkinson kicked off his career in drum'n'bass on two of the genre's most revered labels, Hospital Records and Andy C.'s RAM Records. His passion for dance music began at 14 when he traded his guitar for a sequencer. Music production classes in college led to Wilkinson building a home studio, and later, a full-fledged studio where he recorded "Hypnosis," a track that landed on the 2010 Hospital Records compilation Sick Music 2. Demos sent to Andy C. led to a contract with the DJ's label, RAM Records, kicking off with the 2010 12" "Moonwalker," which also landed on Andy C.'s mix CD Nightlife 5. He won the Best Breakthrough Producer award at the U.K.'s National D&B Awards 2012 and released his hit 12" "Need to Know" that same year. In 2013 RAM issued his debut album, Lazers Not Included. ~ David Jeffries
'Wilkinson - Sweet Lies Feat. Karen Harding' - Such a fresh and crisp track for the change of seasons. As we move from summer into fall and the air is cool Sweet Lies is the perfect song to soundtrack the change. Classic liquid drum and bass approach with two versions available. The Dj version and the original. One smooth and radio friendly while the later is def more club ready. Cross over EDM appeal with a pop quality that widens the audience range for sure. A modern DNB track built to last. Jason Bakes
