First Listen: $wi$jay – ‘Greaze’ (Thanks For Trying Records)

The Walthamstow producer’s debut is a venomous grime instrumental.

With guidance from Thanks For Trying label boss The Last Skeptik, and influence from pioneering UK DJs and producers like EZ, Slimzee and Jon E. Cash, $wi$jay has just released his debut single.

‘Greaze’, which you can stream below, is a bone-rattling cut primed for the club – full of darting strings, classic grime bass tones, and rattling hi-hats. Drawing from grime’s halcyon days, but decidedly future-facing, $wi$jay is a young producer you need to keep an eye on in the coming year.

‘Greaze’ is out now on Thanks For Trying Records.
