Wiley is one of the original founders of what is now known as ‘Grime’ music. Traversing from the massive Pay As U Go Cartel to start up his own crew with the Roll Deep Entourage. His debut album ‘Treddin On Thin Ice’, released through XL, brought his unique “Eski beat” sound to the world and has cememnted him as one of the most innovative producers ever in British electronic music. Co-producer on the certified Silver selling ‘In At The Deep End’ LP from Roll Deep showed a versatility to not only his lyrical content but also his musical sound.
Arguably the most influencial musician from Grime’s spiritual home of Bow E3, Wiley has been either directly responsible for or indirectly influenced the careers of nearly every artist to come through the scene. Either producing beats for or nurturing younger talent like Tinchy Stryder, JME, Skepta, Doctor, Jammer and most notably Dizzee Rascal, or being involved in memorable clashes with sparring partners such as Lethal B, Kano, Durrty Goodz, Sharky Major, Bashy and Nasty Jack, Wiley has influenced a large number of talented individuals who have gone on to make their mark in the Grime scene. Legendary as both an MC and a Producer, and starting off as a DJ, Wiley is one of a few individuals who can be honestly described as excelling in many different areas of music.
