Roots Manuva (Rodney Smith) was a British rapper. The oneiric production of Brand New Second Hand (1999) owed to drum'n'bass and trip-hop, and his Jamaican roots crept out on Run Come Save Me (2001), that was also unusual for its confessional content.

Awfully Deep (2005) was an even more introspective and almost manic depressive work but sonically less adventurous, with dub and reggae still being the main sonic ingredients.

Slime & Reason (2008) abandoned the confessional stance for more public rants, while letting the music flow.

4Everevolution (2011) is another lighter affair, with even slower rhythms and more live instruments, a hodgepodge of comfortable dub, electro, garage, grime and old-fashioned hip-hop that peaks with the seven-minute The Throes of It.
