Roots Manuva Meets Wrong Tom - Duppy Writer

And yea it came to pass that Big Dada and The Banana Klan did release 'Duppy Writer' and yea, it was f**king wonderful... Picking up great reviews all over the shop, full of fun, perfect for trying to catch the last of summer with, we think that anyone who has ever liked a bit of Roots Manuva is going to love this. Far be it from us to advocate the use of illegal drugs, but get some smoke in, crank up the system and feel the magic.

iTunes have a special bonus track 'Rebel Art' (not available anywhere else).

Early CD or LP orders from Ninjashop will get a free poster signed by Roots Manuva himself.

Press for Duppy Writer:

"A heady concoction that pulsates with good vibes" - Dazed & Confused "Irresistible... approachable yet with real substance... Outstanding" - Q "The sounds here always convince... Roots Manuva's deft, already reggae-leaning rhyming achieves a perfect fit with Wrongtom's bang-on use of rhythm, bass and sound effects." - Mojo "Revives memories of Brixton during the era of Aswad and riots while never being content to just pastiche the originals. The result is Roots Manuva's most purely pleasurable long-player" - Uncut "The results are a revelation... a timeless joy" - Time Out "Impressive... witty and insightful" - The Sunday Times "Supreme toasting skills... at once more upbeat and laid-back" - Metro
