Wiley: UK garage and storytelling

I woke up with a craving to listen to Wiley’s new track numbers in action. There is something strangely old school and new school about the track and it reminds me of my teen years attempting to mc and loving uk garage. What is it about music and the stage we are in life and that nostalgia we only experience when a certain song is on? Anyway for me UK garage is one of the greatest storytelling tools that young people have. Garage music is distinctly British and the raw content of the tracks perfectly captures what young people in Britain are experiencing daily. Some one like Wiley has not sacrificed every ounce of originality in order to make sales.

Love this track!
