Roots Manuva vs Wrongtom - Jah Warriors - out on Big Dada



Roots Manuva Wrongtom Jah Warriors
Roots Manuva vs Wrongtom - Jah Warriors feat. Ricky Ranking
(7"/Download) Big Dada BDS169/BDDNL169, 2010-08-30

Roots Manuva returns dropping the righteousness. The only brand new track from the forthcoming Roots Manuva meets Wrongtom project, Duppy Writer, Jah Warriors is a low-ended, bumping reggae-hip hop jam which sees Roots himself running through a host of lyrical styles and themes sounding as fresh and as fired up as he has in ages. Meanwhile, the one and only Ricky Ranking adds some soundsystem sweetness pon de chorus. The basic music for Jah Warriors was written and assembled by Mr Manuva. When he had something he liked, he handed it over to Wrongtom who re-worked the drums to fit with the rest of the project and added enough warm bass to really make the tune bounce. The results are dynamite - a tune which sounds simultaneously classic and utterly contemporary. The package is rounded out by Bashment Bogle, a sparse stepper based on the classic Bashment Boogie (and completely exclusive to this single), and Rebuff - a digi-club re-work of last year's Buff Nuff. Warm, funny, infectiously danceable, Duppy Writer reveals Roots Manuva as one of the most compelling voices in the last two decades of British music. It also makes you smile. What else are you after?
