In Autumn Big Dada will release "Slime + Version" - A collaboration between Roots Manuva and Wrong Tom (Hard FI's tour Dj among other things), which will supply roots, digi-dub and tropical rocksteady versions of tunes from across all his 4 albums, The 2008 album "Slime + Reason" was Manuva's most popular yet charting at at No.22. To tide fans over till then , the 4th single from said album will be the Toddla T produced "Do Nah Bodda" MI" which comes with a Roots Mannuva meets Wrong Tom dub and Xrabit / Redlight remixes. in true Rootical style, Rodney Smith used this bouncy piece of electro-dancehall to tell people to leave him alone! Packing in the hooks in amongst his switchback turns of phrase, it's a superlative performance from an MC absolutely at the top of his game and having all the fun he can squeeze into three minutes of rhythm.
