After creating unique visual accompaniments for DJs such as 2ManyDJs, DJ Kariba and Gilles Peterson, Wilson created his own audio-visual show, a visual explosion that combines psychedelic images with electronic sounds familiar to house and disco listeners.

Wilson is a London-based artist, director and VJ. He shot to fame after producing the visuals for the Moray McLaren hit “We Got Time,” in which Wilson combined animation and film using a praxinoscope, a 19th century precursor to the movie camera.

In later clips, Wilson used a wide variety of technologies and novel techniques. Among his most recent works: a partnership with David Guetta, The Maccabees and Passion Pit. In 2001, Wilson was nominated for best director at the UKMVA. Wilson regularly performs VJ sets at clubs and music festivals.
