Forgive us for stating the obvious, but London-based grime MC Wiley is exhaustingly prolific. With last month's just-dropped album, 100% Publishing, in the bag, he's now going into full-on promo mode for his next LP—previously announced as an EP—Evolve or Be Extinct. The lead single is called "Link Up," and Wiley has offered up the "Alex D Remix" of the track as a way of whetting our appetites. Taking the original song's detuned bassline and replacing it with a fuzzy, overdriven synth-bass, Alex D's remix turns the track out, doing the party-rap vocals justice with an overhaul that's simultaneously stripped down and amped up. "Link Up" is out now. Evolve or Be Extinct drops later this summer.
