Today, New York City’s Wiki has shared a new track ‘Elixir’ out now via XL Recordings / Remote Control Records. ‘Elixir’ sees Wiki taking a new direction, encompassing sounds from across the globe with a track that features two of London’s most exciting voices, Obongjayar and JJ (Jesse James Solomon), giving fans a glimpse of what to expect from new music in 2019.
Wiki says “I’ve known Jesse for the longest. He’s one of my oldest friends out in London. We had this song together for a minute and reached out to Obongjayar to bring it to the next level.”
‘Elixir’ is produced by Felix Joseph, aka ProducedbyFelix, and follows Wiki’s recent one-off song ‘In The Park’ featuring Gloss Gang, which marks a new chapter for Wiki after touring the world in support of his critically-acclaimed New York opus No Mountains in Manhattan.
Wiki‘s long-standing connection to London dates back to his relationship with King Krule, with whom he has been collaborating with since 2012. His admiration for the city has been evident since then — featuring on the US remix of Skepta‘s hit ‘That’s Not Me,’ bridging the gap for the grime star to establish a foothold in America, in addition to his collaborations with UK artists from veterans like Suspect, to up-and-coming talents like JJ, both of whom have been featured on recent releases from Wiki.
