Wildelux is a Bronx emcee I first came across on the DJ Lord Ron 12 inch ‘BX 2 LA Konnect’ released in 2005 when he went under the name Willmatic. I was struck by the dense lyrical styles on that record and still play it a lot, but lost track of this obviously super talented emcee until I heard him on DJ Brans’ 2012 album The Branstorm. Subsequent featurings on DJ Brans’ follow up (Endless) and albums by producers Azaia, Propo’88, DJ Lowcut and Superior ensured he was one to watch in the international underground. Consistently releasing quality projects with Ol Dayz from France, Macapella from the UK and Roccwell from Germany, this worldwide explosion of lyrical energy continues with Marc Swing Presents Open Letters.
On this album, Swedish producer Marc Swing delivers a great selection of banging productions for Wildelux to get busy on, ripping intelligent and visually descriptive sagas, covering topics such as the treatment and experience of refugees (Let’s Go), the trivia of the modern internet news age (Bla Bla Bla), the observations on society generally from a perspective which shows an unusual depth on many tracks (A View Out of My Window, Life of a Goldfish). Open Letters is an album which will take many listens to get everything out of, but only one to get instantly hooked by. Be on the look out for this album on CD and vinyl coming soon. We’re also looking forward to hearing more from Wildelux soon with the highly anticipated follow up to 2011’s Masterplan with Macapella.
