As one of several parts of his involvement with Ninja Tune’s 20th anniversary (Ninja Tune XX, 20th September 2010), Roots Manuva recently crafted a dub of The Herbaliser’s ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes.’ Featuring infectious, eerie sonics, Manuva’s inimitable swing and new, ruminative verses from the man himself, it’s everything great about Roots boiled down to one song. Better yet, Big Dada founder and Manuva-mentor Will Ashon filmed the dub being made!
Roots Manuva is headlining the Ninja Tune XX party at London Ewer Street on 2nd October, as well as playing dates in Paris and Brussels. He has two new tracks on the 20th anniversary compilations, and remixes of his work by Micachu, Modeselektor, Cut Chemist and Slugabed amongst others.
His latest album, ‘Duppy Writer,’ a collaborative remix collection, is out on September 6th 2010.
