Roots Manuva has returned with his first new material since 2013’s Banana Skank EP.

This time round Rodney Smith recruits Kieran Hebden, aka the very busy Four Tet, to craft a backdrop of scuffed, agitated drums and crunchy percussion for his laidback, almost stream-of-consciousness rhymes on ‘Facety 2:11’.

Manuva introduced the track thus: “The saga goes from tangent to tangent here in the primal decibel of infinite tribal dub-wise mutation show me your skank face, let’s get feisty.”

The Fader have premiered the track and hinted that the UK rap hero has more material coming shortly.
