roots manuva | facety 2:11

Print

Rodney Smith aka Roots Manuva is back after two years locked in the studio brewing up new music. The single „Facety“ is produced by fellow UK maverick Four Tet.

Facety is patois slang for someone being rude – a barefaced cheek referenced by the insistent, cockney rhyming lyrical snip – ‘boat race’ – that makes up the chorus. Another of electronic music’s most exciting voices, NYC producer Machinedrum, provides the beat for the B-Side, Like a Drum. In his inimitable words, the single is ‘a wee Spring warmer in voodoo coptic dialect shape shifting: the remit the same as ever in awakening one’s inner, modern-day Sun Ra, ODB and Kate Bush on an overdrive of „doing because we can’t help ourselves…’

Pre-order on 12″ & digital download from Ninjashop or iTunes.
