 WILEY MY MISTAKES 7"

Wiley returns with the anthemic My Mistakes. A late edition to the album, Playtime Is Over, it is also reported to be his personal favorite and it’s not difficult to see why as up and coming producer Bless Beats meshes snares, digital snaps and orchestral cut-ups in a blaze of alchemy. The Eski boy drops some of his most conscientious lyrics yet and is joined by Roll Deeps most recent addition Manga, and Little Dee. In football terms these two would be known as “hot prospects” from the Wiley grime school of excellence.

When I interviewed Spank Rock producer Armani Xxxchange earlier this year he was more than excited about the addition of Wiley to Big Dada Recordings, and of course, the prospect of working with his new label-mate. The Xxxchange remix adds more than element of dnb together with distorted vocals and thrashing live drum edits creating a more dance floor friendly sound.

But he is outdone by Big Dada’s newest signing, Xrabit (what is it with all the ‘Xs’ over there right now? It’s like a teenage girl with an unlimited text message bundle has been unleashed). His remix is a twitchy, bleepy creation with a bizarre, soft fart-like sound throughout. Throw in Wiley’s grimey vocals and you have an outlandish concoction of Anime score-Acid trip, laughing so hard you throw-up sort of track, all in a good way of course. Yet further innovation from the godfather of grime.
