This is my fave Wiley tune for that reason and the fact it still makes me laugh when I hear it 6 years later.

    I'm not fond of the Crash Bandicoot riddim though agree it includes some of Wiley's best lyrics. I prefer hearing them on this

    As for Night... when this dropped round about Winter 06/07 it was so infectious because it was very different from what we were used to in dubstep- it could pass for a pitched up techno record if those kind of DJ's were willing to put up with the 'intricate' (their emphasis) drum pattern. And as far as I know Night still hasn't inspired many, if any copycat imitations. Sadly after a few months of repetition it just doesn't sound the same to me. But for the first few weeks it was like- what is that Hatcha dubplate? You couldn't have guessed who the producer was. Then a few months later it was the same sotry with Skreams 'Roots Dyed dark' remix.

    It's a shame, cause apart from the big charting tunes (Oi, Pow etc) and some of the artists which even middle class indie kids in north west London clocked (JME, Dizzee) I totally missed grime and all the famous freestyles. To my very uninformed ears JME & Skepta on Spaceship riddim's one of the best out there.

    Don't think I put any Wiley freestyles in my ballot. I'd put Nightbus Dubplate, Sinner freestyle, WD25, the ten minute Westwood one above Crash Bandicoot tbh

    In a way, "Endz" is kind of a more 'rougher' version of "Oh No", but it's SO perfect.

    Admittedly I've never heard B-15 Project before, but this song's pretty good. I'm trying to remember if my list had ENOUGH Garage on it, but I think I tended to prefer songs just before 2000 so I lose out on a few picks.

    Edit: Also, this Radio version of Tempz on RBX: is traumatically good. Anyone remember the live set it's from?

    interesting how a number of people chose not to vote for some of the big tunes because they thought everyone else would, or they wanted to highlight more underground stuff. i guess there's always a question of perspective on something like this (or end-of-year lists): what does "top" tracks mean? are you being asked to list the "best" tunes, the "biggest" ones, or perhaps your "favorite" ones? those could be three very different sets of selections.

    The 'big' are coming out on top so far anyway. Dissensus in line with the consensus

    I find that really interesting. It might be that there's a really long tail going on here, and the only stuff we agree on at all is the big stuff.

    Or, the big stuff is all in the 20s and as we go up the charts it's just radio rips of Wiley's nan which only dissensus knows but all of dissensus loves.
