Jam Hot: Week 30

Post categories:

Mistajam | 14:12 UK time, Monday, 21 July 2008

Every week I pick one record that isn't just hot, it's Jam Hot and I play it every day on the show. This week, the honour goes to the new single from a UK HipHop legend who's been putting it down since 1994 - Roots Manuva's "Again & Again".

• For anyone who doesn't know who Roots Manuva is, he first hit the scene in 1994 first with a group called IQ Procedure and then featuring on a Blak Twang record ("Queens Head")
• After working with Skitz and releasing tracks on various labels, he settled with Big Dada and released his debut solo album "Brand New Second Hand" in 1998.
• Fast forward 10 years and "Again & Again" is the second single to be taken from Roots' forthcoming 6th album due at the end of August called "Slime & Reason"
• The record was co-produced by Roots and D&B legend Shy FX who adds his Digital Soundboy style swagger
• Check out Roots' new site including his regular updates from his Twitter account!

You can hear this record every day this week on my show
