Eskiboy aka Wiley aka Richard Cowie is one of the original founders of what is now known as "grime" music. Originating in the massive Pay As U Go Cartel, Wiley went on to start up his own crew with the Roll Deep entourage. His debut album Treddin On Thin Ice, released through XL, brought his unique "Eski beat" sound to the world and has cemented him as one of the most innovative producers ever in British electronic music. The Best of Tunnel Vision is compiled by the grime scene's number one DJ, Logan Sama and encapsulates all the best from the stream of updates from Eski's Tunnel Vision series of mixtape CD styles -- made swiftly and fired out frequently beneath the radar. This is Wiley rising to clashes -- a notepad for his freshest beats -- freestyles and war dubs alike. Simply check the vital Eskiboy version "I'm a Sinner" to Various Production's urban classic "Hater." As craftsman, mentor, motivator -- it's impossible to underestimate Wiley's influence -- his chill vision mapped out with acid blips, machined rhythms -- a brilliant alien terrain for an entire generation of new vocal and MC talent to shine over. Matching significant production innovation with a rapacious appetite for delivery 'pon microphone -- yet managing to describe an unparalleled range of emotion -- from haunting self-doubt to aggrandizing battle talk, all modern life is here.
