Grime is the product of networks, of collectives coming together to move forward.
But if grime has one pivotal figure in its early evolution then that person is Wiley. The mad-genius of British music, the Bow rapper spent 2013 ransacking the charts and taunting festival organisers.
United with some underground talent, new album ‘Snakes & Ladders’ is forthcoming via Big Dada.
New single ‘On A Level’ is online now. From the chirruping 8-Bit synths to the pounding 140 percussion this is sheer grime as only Wiley knows how. As the man himself says: “still Roll Deep on a level.”
Listen to it now.
