Boomkat Product Review:
Rodney Smith aka Roots Manuva drops his fourth album since his pivotal 'Brand new second hand' set some 13 years ago. In that time Roots has carved out a comfortable niche as the UK's finest and most original MC, succinctly melding a wicked sense of humour with a blend of London and Jamaican patois which has been oft imitated, but rarely bettered. Couple this with his knack for crafting a seriously killer riddim (remember Witness?), alongside selecting some of the UK's finest producers to work with an you have quite a distinct talent. His latest LP utilises the brilliant studio skills of Sheffield bassed Toddla T, a young dancehall head who learnt his trade under the tutelage of Ross Orton of Fat Truckers fame, and brings this well honed pop/dancehall sensibility to a number of tracks from album highlights 'Do Nah Bodda me' to recent single 'Buff nuff'. Packing more dub for your buck, the album also includes a bonus 7-track dub version from Dub selector and producer Wrongtom and the Stoneleigh Mountain Rockers, recreating many of the tracks from the ground up with fresh intrumentation and heavy dub application giving the album a whole other perspective from the shiny polished studio version. You can always trust Manuva to come up with the goods, just think of him like your cool Dub loving Uncle that sends you a wicked album every couple of years. Top!
