Premiere Album Stream: Roots Manuva Meets Wrong Tom - Duppy Writer

For those who remember it, Roots Manuva's "Witness (1 Hope)" is the zenith of the one-man genre known as UK Hip-Hop That Sounds Like Dubplates From 2076. When it came out in July 2001, the world was a simpler place where you could illegally download music really easily and George Bush and Tony Blair were just a couple of goofs. The FADER, in its infinite wisdom, had featured Roots Manuva several months before the song's release in issue #6, and we've been big fans ever since.

So, the release of this new remix album of songs from Manuva's four studio albums, along with some new jams, by UK avant-dub specialist Wrong Tom, is obviously the center cog in our collective and historical editorial wheelhouse. It's out in the US on September 21st, but we have a little sneak preview for you to either re-familiarize yourself with the Manuva's mellow genius or get to know him for the first time through a filter that should probably be scrubbed free of bong resin. Buy the album now right here.
