“He’s predictably unpredictable, an innovator who doesn’t take himself too seriously… you’d be a fool to ignore him.” – NME
Wiley, the godfather of grime, returns with the new single ‘Heatwave’ which will be released on July 30th on Warner Bros. Records.
Featuring a huge pop hook courtesy of guest vocalist Ms D (who also featured on Chipmunk’s #1 hit ‘Oopsy Daisy’), the immediately addictive ‘Heatwave’ is full of scorching seasonal references and looks set to soundtrack the rest of the summer. The track was produced by Rymez (Wretch 32, Tinie Tempah).
Already playlisted at Kiss, 1Xtra and Choice, ‘Heatwave’ again demonstrates Wiley’s ability to create crossover hits that maintain his longstanding underground credibility, as he has previously demonstrated with the singles ‘Wearing My Rolex’ (#2), ‘Never Be Your Woman’ (#8), ‘Cash In My Pocket’ (#19) and ‘Take That’ (#20).
Wiley has a rich history in collaborating with breaking new talent, having seen the likes of Emeli Sandé, Ed Sheeran, Tinie Tempah, Daniel Merriweather and Tinchy Stryder feature on his tracks. He has also featured as a guest artist on recordings from Dizzee Rascal, Ed Sheeran, Jodie Connor and Chipmunk.
Founder member and leader of the Roll Deep collective who had two #1 singles with ‘Good Times’ and ‘Green Light’, Wiley has also proved to be one of the most prolific artists around. To date, he has released nine studio albums including ‘Evolve or Be Extinct’ which was released in January. Covering topics from ordering a taxi to being stopped by immigration, it also delves into his psyche on tracks such as ‘Weirdo’ (“I’m a weirdo but I’m not a bi-polar”), ‘Miss You’ and ‘Scar’ (in reference to the cut on his face). The album earned glowing reviews across the board from publications as diverse as NME, The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Independent, The Sun, Metro, Q, Mojo, Clash and Artrocker.
Wiley remains one of the biggest characters and wildest talents in British music. Whether helping younger artists break through, offloading hundreds of unreleased tracks on Twitter, or doling out private insights on the web, he is always in the studio.

Produced by DC musical maverick, Kokayi and featuring new songstress Bird (short for Blaque Bird), “Anti” smacks you in the face with a gritty bassline and angst filled hook.
“…All these speaches don’t mean nothin’, when these cops just shot my cousin, thats’ why I’m anti!”
The high energy of this track is sure to be a banger not only in the european club scene, but an anthem in the hood for rebellion.
