Roots Manuva - Get The Get - out 2011 on Big Dada



Roots Manuva Get The Get
Roots Manuva - Get The Get
(Digital Single) Banana Klan/Big Dada BDDNL188, 2011-09-26

Roots Manuva comes storming out of the blocks with the first full single from his forthcoming album, 4everevolution. Get The Get is a hyped up, clever party tune, which sees Mr Manuva apparently encouraging you to drink Italian wine ("soave") whilst actually telling you to "get suavay" - a new Manuva coinage meaning (very roughly) to cut a rug in on your own personal, ragged style - a kind of "Party Rock Anthem" for nerds, dole-boys, crafts-girls and, well, people with some semblance of taste... Not since the crufatin liveth has Rodney Smith come out with such a hard-hitting dancefloor tune, his rhymes tight and energised and offset by some smokey, fifties-style vocals from up-and-coming young singer Rokhsan.

Press Release :
Roots Manuva comes storming out of the blocks with the first full single from his forthcoming album, "4everevolution." "Get The Get" is a hyped up, clever party tune, which sees Mr Manuva apparently encouraging you to drink Italian wine ("soave") whilst actually telling you to "get suavay" - a new Manuva coinage meaning (very roughly) to cut a rug in on your own personal, ragged style - a kind of "Party Rock Anthem" for nerds, dole-boys, crafts-girls and, well, people with some semblance of taste... Not since the crufatin liveth has Rodney Smith come out with such a hard-hitting dancefloor tune, his rhymes tight and energised and offset by some smokey, fifties-style vocals from up-and-coming young singer Rokhsan.

This superb introduction to the fifth studio album from Mr Manuva is filled out by a couple of lip-smacking remixes. Breakage takes a couple of lines from Smith’s vocal and strings them over a rhythm that references Shaka-style roots, early jungle and the very latest in dustepnology. Slugabed, meanwhile - responsible for the standout remix of "Witness" on Ninja’s 20th anniversary "XX" boxset - adds his own wonky, strung-out melancholy funk with scintillating results.

"4everevolution" is just a few seconds under an hour long, consists of seventeen tracks and covers every style from wonky reggae through pop-funk, street spitting, straight up hip hop, sung ballads and epic death-disco. It deepens much of what Mr Manuva has already achieved over a glorious decade of innovation, but also throws in enough new ideas and adventures to last most creative artists a lifetime. We think it's his very best work since "Run Come Save Me." We're wondering (whisper it) whether it might be his best album ever.
