How Did I Miss That: Roots Manuva – Stolen Youth

Roots Manuva

Roots Manuva looking to get under your “Skins” with his track “Stolen Youth”…

In recent history I haven’t had the luxury of watching much TV but one thing that I can admit is that Skins consistent had an awesome soundtrack that matched the subject matter and issues it confronted throughout its episodes. I stumbled across this beaut of a track while Radio 6 was on in the office and felt compelled to nod my head and walk up to the DAB radio and take note, so it was only right to share.. It worthwhile to note that Roots Manuva’s new track was exclusively created for that new season of Skins off the back of appearing in the original season back in 2007 (which feels like an eternity ago now). Roots’ signature delivery and the dark gritty undertone of a well produced track lends itself to the perfectly to the engulfing dramatic sinister nature of the tv series that even if you haven’t watched it, its worth while even if just for its well selected sound scape. (Also its a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY for the 9th Mr Manuva!!!)
