Two generations of eski collide as Zomby meets Wiley.

Zomby has long been indebted to Wiley’s trademark style of grime production, which uses the Korg Triton’s gliding squares preset and EMU percussion clicks to create a hollow, icy sound (hence the eski name). In fact, if you search YouTube for “zomby eski” there’s a gold mine of unreleased productions in this style.

Given all this it’s surprising that the two haven’t crossed paths on a release yet, but Big Dada are set to change that on ‘Step 2001’, a Zomby update of Wiley’s much-loved ‘Step 20’ vocal. It’ll be released on 12″ and digital on September 24, and we’re streaming the audio here:
