Wiley – She’s Glowin (all formats 23rd February on Eskibeat Recordings)
‘She’s Glowing’ is the latest single from Wiley. A bass heavy tune overlaid with an infectious riff and trademark vocals from Wiley and long time collaborators Kano and Ghetto, it’s a three minute slice of ‘commercial’ grime with the potential to be a massive mainstream smash both on the dancefloor and the airwaves. Following on from this summer’s huge hit, ‘Wearing My Rolex’ and its recent follow up ‘Summertime’ Wiley is taking some time out focus on his own label Eskibeat. A true pioneer of the UK grime scene he founded Eskibeat Recordings in 2007, home to a collective of grime producers, artists and MCs including Bless Beats, Maniac, Chipmunk, Hardsy and Little D.  One of the original founders of Roll Deep Crew, Wiley has been responsible for producing beats for or nurturing younger talent like Tinchy Stryder, Skepta and most notably Dizzee Rascal.

Biography
‘She’s Glowin’ is the latest single from Eskiboy, aka Wiley. A bass heavy tune overlaid with an infectious riff and trademark vocals from Eskiboy and long time collaborators Kano and Ghetto, it’s a three minute slice of ‘commercial’ grime with the potential to be a massive mainstream smash both on the dancefloor and the airwaves.

Following on from this summer’s huge hit, ‘Wearing My Rolex’ and its recent follow up ‘Summertime’ Wiley is taking some time out focus on his own label Eskibeat and release this single under his Eskiboy moniker. Produced by Wiley, ‘She’s Glowin’ sees him hook up with another heavyweight star of the UK urban scene Kano, (Wiley produced a few tracks for Kano’s most recent album ‘140 Grime Street’) as well as grime veteran, old sparring partner and member of The Movement crew Ghetto.

A true pioneer of the UK grime scene, Wiley has also created his own musical genre ‘Eski’ whose best known track to date, ‘Eskimo’, was a massive success on the underground. He founded Eskibeat Recordings in 2007 which is home to a collective of grime producers, artists and MCs including Bless Beats, Maniac, Chipmunk, Hardsy and Little D. The label has also released a series of Eskiboy mixtapes.

Wiley, one of the original founders of the Roll Deep Crew, has established himself right at the forefront of the UK scene.  Arguably the most influential 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. Either producing beats for or nurturing younger talent like Tinchy Stryder, Skepta and most notably Dizzie Rascal or being involved in memorable clashes with the likes of Lethal B, Kano or Bashy, Wiley has influenced a large number of individuals who’ve gone on to make their mark in the grime scene.
