Eski-Boy Goin Out With A Banger! Wiley’s New Video Is SMokin!
Posted by Molli Fire on Friday, 1June07
Lots of Eski-boy goodies today! First of all, check the video for “50/50” off the upcoming Playtime Is Over album:
Oh its just so UK dance! I love it!
The album gets dropped worldwide on June 4th, but you can get the (320kbps) mp3s of “50/50” and “Bow E3” from BLEEP right now. You will however have to wait to attend the album release party with Boy Better Know crew (JME, Skepta), Loefah and Illa Man all supporting the Grandfather of Grime! That will be at Cargo in London on a Thursday – June 21st. Thursday has always been my favorite day of the week. Nothing but good things happen on Thursdays. Wiley will be performing live, and for only 10 Quid you can’t afford to miss it!
If you want more Wiley, you can get your fix with the Independent Music Magazine today, he’s the adorable cover boy, same with RWD Mag, The Wire, Echoes. Next week he graces the cover of Plan B and One Week To Live. Big Smoke covers him at the end of the month. Whoo boy, good thing his face is so pleasant to look at. That’s a lot of music magazine covers to be staring out from!
Independent said this about the upcoming album:
“Playtime is Over is so important, not just to him, but to the future legacy of grime, and what it might mean in 10 years time.. Brilliantly grime, fuelled with anthems and sing-alongs and deserves to go down as his greatest work to date.”
Playtime Is Over is released on June 4th by Big Dada. You can listen to the single “Bow E3” on their homepage.

Don’t think for a New York minute that this album is going to be released in digital format only. No, these are vinyl traditionalists. You can purchase the 2x LP, the black CD, or the mp3 bundle. Your choice. It’s here on the Big Dada page for Playtime Is Over along with a great bio.
He also had a short performance on Channel 4, which you can watch here.
Thanks James, Big Dada for the scoop! I haven’t been this excited about a new album in so long!!
