'Banana Skank EP' Out Now!

Roots Manuva - 'Banana Skank EP' Out Now!

The one Roots Manuva returns to the fray with the Banana Skank EP, displaying a perfect balance between stripped back lyrical goodness and dancefloor crunchiness - out now worldwide!

The last track on Mr Manuva's acclaimed 2011 album 4everevolution, "Banana Skank" is here reimagined by WAFA as a hyperkinetic club smasher, all intricate changes of direction and emphasis, but without losing any of the original's joyful reggae pulse. Not be outdone, Smith links up his own sequel to the original, a kind of motoric good trip/bad trip which reminds you yet again what a uniquely talented producer he is. "Party Time" and "Natural" reinforce the point, showcasing the stripped back, icy productions Manuva has been making at his secret Tottenham base over the last year or so.

The Banana Skank EP is available now worldwide on yellow 12" vinyl (in transparent, screenprinted plastic sleeves) and download at the Ninjashop / iTunes / Amazon.

Roots Manuva plays London's KOKO on 16 March - all info here.
