May the return to Big Dad be the grand saviour of Wiley’s career? Will it bring the perfect balance between grime and commercial success? It might be, cause “100% Publishing” looks well promising on paper, light years better than “Playtime’s Over” that made him and BD part ways after the album was released in 2007.
The release date of “100% Publishing” has been pending from the 27th of June ’til the 4th of July but the final date is now set to the 20th of June (pre-order the album off iTunes or Amazon). I’m still hoping to get blown away “Treddin’ on Thin Ice”-style and “100% Publishing” is written, produced and mastered in its entirety by the man himself, no Bless Beats or any other electro fuckery around to ruin it (HOPEFULLY).
And I must say, I like the first single that dropped last month, ‘Numbers in Action’. Yes, we all know that Dizzee did the 1337-speak thing on his “Maths + English” from 2007 but it doesn’t matter when the end result is this good. The single EP of ‘Numbers in Action’ drops on Monday (pre-order iTunes & Amazon) with remixes from Sticky, Toddska (Toodla+Roska), ZDot and the latest signing to the Big Dada-family: Dobie.
