Performer Notes

  • Audio Mixers: Samuel Parker; Roots Manuva; Steve Dub.
  • Recording information: Ceasefire Studios, Waterloo, Belgium; Dada Studios; Plan B Studios; Rhythm Station, Brixton, England; Unit L Studios; Waterloo Bridge Studios.
  • Arrangers: Roots Manuva; Steve Dub.
  • Roots Manuva ended up with a great many tracks from the sessions of his critically-acclaimed album AWFULLY DEEP, many of which ended up as B-sides and remixes. A brace of those tracks appears on the mid-priced collection ALTERNATELY DEEP, finding the rapper/producer twisting and rearranging his tracks--along with contributions from grime heavies like Jammer, Lotek, and Colossus--to a suitably dark and futuristic effect. Jarring bass, booming drums, and left-of-center synth stabs paint a dark, misty background for the London rapper to flow over, touching on themes of reggae, dub, Miami bass, and abstract, left field electro and techno. ALTERNATELY DEEP brings a sizeable amount of hard, mid-tempo club-dub heaviness to the table, and successfully keeps Roots Manuva at the forefront of UK hip-hop innovation.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.120) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Dark and lean overall, with electronic textures and notes of grime, dub and dirty hip hop."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.103) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Nothing here is as straightforward as it first seems, so even when it doesn't work it's never less than fascinating."
