Yup, I've heard the new Roots Manuva, and it's incredible! A beautifully tight, perfectly flowing, not a moment wasted type of an album. Will Ashon at Big Dada's line on it when I talked to him was that it's the first through and through classic album from a classic artist, and I have to agree. Way better than the last two. It's on some Jah Shaka plays Burt Bacharach type tip in places, which always does it for me. Already looking like one of the top 10 hip-hop albums of 2005 to me. You should also look out for the Ricky Ranking stuff Roots is putting out on his Banana Klan label. Ricky was a deejay on nuff south london sounds in the 80s (put out a tune called Digital Rock in about 86) and he's been Roots' hype man live for the last few years. HIs new stuff is on some Roots Manuva meets Portishead meets Shaka type tip all with a sweet singer/gruffly deejay on top.
