Roots Manuva is set to release his new EP 'Banana Skank' through Big Dada on January 21st.
Roots Manuva may not be visible, but that doesn't mean he's silent. Holed up in his Tottenham base, the MC has been working on new material, with rumours of an icy, sparse sound running through some of his latest work. Now he's breaking cover.
New EP 'Banana Skank' is the producer's first forward step in almost 12 months, with the title track finding Roots Manuva re-working a cut from his acclaimed 2011 full length '4everrevolution'. WAFA takes charge of production, while Rodney Smith himself helms a stripped back remix.
Elsewhere, Roots Manuva spars with Banana Klan rapper Kope on 'Natural' and 'Party Time'.
Listen to 'Natural' below.
