About Katie

DJ
London
Verified profile
I'm a singer / songwriter / bass player / DJ / producer based in London.

I was the bass player / vocalist from the indie band Factory Seconds. I also played bass in the punk band TEAR. I am a DJ who specialises in disco, world music, synth wave and left-field techno and EBM. I have residencies on Netil Radio and Threads Radio. Please message me for a link to my Mixcloud as there isn't a Mixcloud option on the media section of Encore. For party DJ sets I tend to do a mix of disco, indie, new wave, electronic and pop hits from 60s-00s.

I'm so happy we hired Katie to DJ our event! She was very flexible, arrived on time, and was just so fabulous to work with. Hope I can make another party soon to invite her back! Thanks, Katie!

It’s been an age since a debut single has arrived from a classic indie band that makes you wanna leap out of your seat fist-pumping enthusiasm out of every orifice. Thankfully London’s Factory Seconds are here to provide with the revitalising beauty of ‘Caught in the Layers’. ‘I’m a bad drunk’ sings Katie Wilkinson to a backdrop of sophisticated new wave influenced instrumentation, sounding like every emotional train wreck of a night ever. Her entire vocal line is one giant hook, the guitars bleed heartache, and the whole thing sounds like Free Fallin’ for a new age. This is huge. Our thoughts go out to her - this song was written in recovery from a mental breakdown, but my does it feel like she’s triumphantly found some kind of catharsis.

There’s been a growing buzz about Londoners Factory Seconds – in fact we have already covered this brilliant, nostalgic indie tune of theirs once before. But now ‘Caught In The Layers’ has a video that also evokes the early 90s indie vibes that the song delivers so well. Drawing a line from dream-pop, through indie-pop and shoegaze it drills down to the essential core of each of these genres to deliver a palatable modern take on sounds from this classic period as a forlorn and introspective examination of mental health.
