This week we take five with Neil Wilkinson, one of the hosts of the Makoosa Soundscape show...
Describe the music you play?
Upfront house with a tech, electronic and afro beat sound. Driving basslines littered with sexy funky vocals.

I have many inspirations within the house music scene, a few DJs that come to mind are Roger Sanchez, Erick Morillo, Axwell, David Guetta. On the production side people like Gregor Salto, Bingo Players, Laidback Luke, David Tort, Prok and Fitch, the list goes on...
What are your current top 3 tracks?
- Christain falero vs Subway Rockers - 'Call Me' (Blondie Gets Banged Falero Mix)
- Sono - 'Keep Control' (Gregor Salto Remix)
- Villanord - 'Muzik' (Bingo Players Remix)
What is your most memorable set or DJ moment?
Most memorable moment would be playing at Turnmills, London on Danny Ramplings Metrogroove night. Awesome...
Tell us something we don't know about Neil Wilkinson?
I use to be a Jungle and Drum & Bass DJ many many moons ago!
