Roots Manuva - Do Nah Bodda Mi



Roots Manuva Do Nah Bodda Mi
Roots Manuva - Do Nah Bodda Mi
(12"/Download) Big Dada BD145/BDDNL145, 2009-06-29

Mr Manuva returns with one of the standout tunes from last year's superb Slime & Reason. Do Nah Bodda Mi was produced by man-of-the-moment Toddla T and, in true Rootical style, Rodney Smith used this bouncy piece of electro-dancehall to tell people to leave him alone! Packing in the hooks in amongst his switchback turns of phrase, it's a superlative performance from an MC absolutely at the top of his game and having all the fun he can squeeze into three minutes of rhythm. And that's before the remixes get going…

Press Release :
Mr Manuva returns with one of the standout tunes from last year's superb "Slime & Reason." "Do Nah Bodda Mi" was produced by man-of-the-moment Toddla T and, in true Rootical style, Rodney Smith used this bouncy piece of electro-dancehall to tell people to leave him alone! Packing in the hooks in amongst his switchback turns of phrase, it's a superlative performance from an MC absolutely at the top of his game and having all the fun he can squeeze into three minutes of rhythm. And that's before the remixes get going…

On "Do Bodda Mi," Wrong Tom takes the original and turns it into classic eighties digi-dub, the spirit on "Sleng Teng" snapping with the lyrics so perfectly it's hard to tell which is the original. Xrabit then turns in another of his dayglo, cartoon-bright productions, a little like Mr Scruff bogling, but less beardy. The package is completed by Red Light's club stomper, a straight-to-the-floor cruncher that's already being caned by the DJs.

Roots Manuva himself is currently working on material for his new album as well as liasing with Wrong Tom, whose reggae version-excursions will see the light of day later in the year on the full length Manuva retrospective "Slime & Version".

Wrongtom's Slime & Version came as a full-length bonus disc with the original CD. Worth a purchase if you like your dubs and don't have it, but sounds like Big Dada are milking it!
