Kidology London is the brainchild of ex Problem Kid Mark Wilkinson, after a string of his own releases on Junior Boys Own, Paper and Azuli Records Mark felt a platform to release his music and tunes from other producers was needed. Keeping with the theme that had developed throughout his career Kidology Records was born. It was during this time that Mark’s ‘Dab Hands’ production outfit took shape. Dab Hands remixed Lou Reed’s ‘Satellite Of Love’, which went into the UK Top 10 in 2004, and released 'Supergood' a cross over hit on Virgin / Ten Records in 2005 followed by ‘DYOT’ an ‘essential new tune’ for Radio 1’s Pete Tong released on Gusto Records in 2006.
Mark began to run his own parties named after the label and ‘Kidology’ became firmly established as one of London’s strongest & most stylish nights out, Kidology held the fort at Ministry of Sound, AKA and The End, the legendary club The Cross, Pacha London, Plan B, The White House & Cherry Jam amongst many others. The formation of ‘The Kidology Kidettes' a group of outgoing girls who made the party into a vibrant, colourful affair, was a fun sideline to the labels great music. Kidology’s ethos is about putting the 'party' feeling back into clubland.
Kidology nights began to regularly spring up across the UK in London, Bristol, Leeds, and Brighton & then back to Ibiza for the summer season alongside Salvacion for every Tuesday @ El Divino presenting a new night called ‘IBIZA REPUBLIK’. Mark Wilkinson was the Kidology resident and played to a sell out crowd in Ibiza town every week.
