Wiley brings back his grime roots on songs like First Class, ChainsawBeen a fan of Wiley's for years now and this album does not disappoint.
Wiley brings back his grime roots on songs like First Class, Chainsaw and Sillzone, has the club raving with Heatwave, Can You Hear Me?, Reload and Lights On and has his own classic ESKIBEAT sound with Humble Pie, Rubicon Ninja and Broken Thoughts.
