Stolen Youth
Roots Manuva

Release Date. 06/08/13
Catalogue Number. BDDNL232

Having had music featured in the very first series of "Skins" back in 2007, when Rodney Smith aka Roots Manuva was asked to compose a track for the very last series, he jumped at the chance. With a brief that covered everything from tempo and feel to hints at lyrical content, Manuva cooked up "Stolen Youth" - a classic Roots Manuva moment built on mournful strings, heartbeat drum programming and the kind of lyrical flights that made his name, all delivered in that trademark chocolate-growl. The producers at "Skins" were so pleased with the results that they asked Segal to make a second version of the tune, to be used over the final credits.

So here, in all their glory, are the original and remix, a little taste of Manuva to keep you going until the various - at this stage top-secret - projects he's working on come to fruition over the next few months.
