Hear Pinch Remix Roots Manuva
The Tectonic founder applies his touch to 'Don't Breathe Out.'
Roots Manuva‘s sixth studio album, Bleeds, dropped via Big Dada in October of last year. The album was heralded as a return to form for the UK hip hop pioneer and featured production from Switch, Adrian Sherwood, and Rodney Smith (a.k.a. Roots Manuva) himself. Following its early success, the album is now being repackaged as a deluxe edition, with 10 new and exclusive tracks, studio off-cuts, and remixes, including reworks from Kode 9, Pinch, Champion, and rLr (a.k.a. XL’s Richard Russell). The deluxe package also features new artwork designed by Leif Podhajsky, the visual artist behind covers for Grimes, Bonobo, and Foals.
In support of the release, XLR8R has been gifted an exclusive stream of Pinch’s deep and atmospheric remix of “Don’t Breathe Out,” a cut from the deluxe package. The Tectonic label head takes the more ethereal original and twists it into one of his notoriously bass-heavy reworks, with Roots Manuva’s flowing rhymes rattling round on top.
