Treddin' On Thin Ice (Explicit)
Released: Jan 2004
The U.K. rapper/producer delivers one of the most captivating and overlooked albums of the grime genre. The lyrics are competent, though not great, but Wiley's patented "Eskimo Sound" makes the album. Bubbling sub bass, prickly electro buzz and dry synth swells are the order of the day. As an added bonus, Thin Ice marks the first U.S. appearance of U.K. it-boy Kano.
