Roots Manuva on Now Playing @6Music - #Manuva6Music


Roots Manuva is on Now Playing this week as our virtual guest. The iconic UK rapper will be on Twitter answering your questions and picking the playlist for the show with your help. 

For an hour from 7.30pm, Roots will be controlling 6 Music from the comfort of his own home. He’s already picked a couple of tracks which inspired him to make music, some all time classics, current favourites to kick things off – but a large portion of the playlist is empty, and he’s going to filter through your suggestions to fill it up.

Use #Manuva6music to get through to him on Twitter, but if you don’t use Twitter, you can still get involved by e-mail, Facebook, here on the blog or add to our collaborative Roots Manuva Spotify list - and we’ll pass your messages on.

Things you might want to get him to play:
• Gems from Roots’ back catalogue – Dreamy Days, Witness or maybe an album track or your favourite B-side
• Something from his latest album – 4everevolution
• Artists he’s collaborated with – Gorillaz, DJ Shadow, The Maccabees, Leftfield, Coldcut
• Other hip-hop artists
• One of his Big Dada or Ninja Tune label mates

Get your suggestions in now, ready for Roots on Friday, and be sure to listen to the show from 7pm, which will also feature the wonderful We Are SME who are coming back once again to play us some of the music which is currently getting their feet tapping.
