Assured and brilliant, "Numbers.." sounds like the Godfather of Grime making Old Skool Hip Hop for all tomorrow's parties. And its funny, too.
Remix duties are led out by Sticky, who Wiley simple describes as "the don". Sticky takes the swing of the original rhythm and builds rising keyboard lines on top in an oblique nod to "99 Problems". Toddska (Toddla T and Roska) break everything down into their constiuent parts and plot out the line between Baltimore House and Sheffield Bleep. Grime up 'n' comer Z Dot, on the other hand, takes the tune back to its roots in the music Wiley pioneered.
To fill out the package, is the video from Us Design Studios. Best known for their work with DELS and the video for Tinie Tempah's "Pass Out", the duo have come up with something extra special for The Elusive. Best known for never turning up for his video shoots and in recent months tending to appear in videos as nothing more than a photo, the video for "Numbers In Action" features no less than thirty two Wileys. Often six of them at once. Sure to be a huge viral hit, choose your favourite Wiley now!
The single Numbers In Action is out 30th May.
The album 100% Publishing is out 4th July.
