Will Hine aka Whiney, one of Hospital Records’ youngest ever signings, has been lighting up dancefloors and festivals with his trademark underground sounds for over 7 years. Introduced to Drum & Bass at 14 and classical instruments at 7, Will focused his efforts on production signing his first track ‘No More’ to Hospital Records at the age of 18 – already turning heads at a young-age, Will signed exclusively to Hospital’s sister-label Med School Music just 2 years later.
It only took a couple of years and the release of his debut album ‘Talisman’ for Will’s impact on the scene to really get noticed. 3 nominations (Best Album, Best Newcomer and Best Track) at the D&BA awards and the release of the 2017 anthem ‘Flashlight’, Will was proving to be one of the scenes hottest prospects, performing regularly across the UK and Europe at clubs such as Fabric, Studio 338, Standon Calling Festival and a debut solo-tour of Australia. Originally picked up by the Djs DJ Randall, Flashlight went on to hold the D&B top spot on Beatport for 2 weeks, becoming a key track in DJs sets and heard across stages at Let It Roll, Notting Hill Carnival and Boomtown and the Radio 1 airwaves courtesy of DJ Friction.
No longer viewed as a newcomer, Whiney’s second album “Waystone” cemented his name as one of the scene’s most well respected artists. There followed remix requests from S.P.Y, Etherwood, London Elektricity, BCee and Ecuador as well as radio and dancefloor support from DJ Target, Friction, Noisia, High Contrast, Rene LaVice, Annie Nightingale and Camo & Krooked, to name but a few. Whiney’s compositions are also included in diverse sync projects with BT Sports and Letterkenny and computer games like FIFA 23, Need For Speed Heat, Forza Horizon 3, 4 & 5, and GRIP.
In recent years, Whiney has become renowned for carving out his own sound alongside a slew of top-tier vocalists, most specifically on his infamous ‘Bubblers’ EP series. Following an iconic long-standing pairing with Inja as well as producing the beats on his most recent ‘Smile & Wave’ album, Whiney has a long list of vocal collaborations under his belt with a string of some of the finest MCs including Subten on his original grime and drum & bass infusion ‘Headlines’, Parly B, Ben Verse, Truthos Mufasa… And now the one and only P Money as the duo works towards a very special project on Hospital Records, already boasting hit singles including ‘Buss The Red’, ‘Sorry I’m Not Sorry’ and ‘Dead In The Eye (feat. Example)’.
