Audio: Roots Manuva – Facety 2.11/Like A Drum

roots manuva

Check out the double A-side single, ‘Facety 2:11’ / ‘Like A Drum’ which sees Roots Manuva recruit two of electronic music’s most formidable talents, Four Tet, and Machinedrum. ‘Facety 2:11’ is produced by fellow UK maverick Four Tet. ‘Facety’ is patois slang for someone being rude – a barefaced cheek. Infectious hip hop drums and shuddering bass combined with a simply effective melody. Another of electronic music’s most exciting voices, NYC producer Machinedrum, provides the beat for ‘Like A Drum.’ Urgent and reflective all at once, its percussion swings gorgeously behind a melody intricately weaved from jazz samples and warm pads. Listen to the tracks below, and welcome back, Rodney.
