Wiley – From The Outside (Special Request Mix)

From the Outside’ which was originally on the Snakes and Ladders LP, already has a remix by Actress back in March who in a manner very similar to this frosty Kelis edit, has a knack for filling headphones with a chilling dementor-like dread. This electrifying mix by Special Request (aka Paul Woolford) however significantly elevates the mercury in the thermometer. Wiley over the years covered a wide range of production styles so, to mesh with this dancefloor ready edit comes as no surprise, “Cus really Wiley goes in.” Moreover, grime is at a great place right now; it’s full of artists that you sense their quiet is not the a signifier of inactivity, but rather the calm before the storm(zy)(sorry).
