Back To Mine Offering From Roots Manuva.
24th October '05 sees the Back To Mine series return with Mobo winner, Mercury nominee and undisputed "King of the UK MC's" - ROOTS MANUVA. With a truly inspired selection encompassing the whole gamut of underground and urban influences, Roots (AKA Rodney Smith) invites you step in to his world. For an hour or so at least.
People have always spoken about me as an MC, which is cool, but there's a lot more to what I do than that. This has been a real opportunity for me to show my selecta side. In the days of soundsystems there'd be the sound guy, and the selecta, which back then would've been me. What are my favourites? They are all one to me!" - Roots Manuva
