5. Roots Manuva Dreamy Days (12" - )
If you havent yet heard all the hype surrounding this man; the many proclamations that hes the biggest thing to happen to rap in a long time, and the numerous plaudits surrounding his current album Run Come Save Me (from which this single is lifted), thenwhere have you been?

Perhaps now is the time to dip your toe in the water and hear what all the fuss is about. Dreamy Days, a string and clavichord spectacular, is basic but brilliant with cuttingly honest lyrics and a cool unstrained vocal. The additional and oddly named track Fly Turd Fly shows Roots darker side, its a twisted, attitude-laden soiree that more than justifies all the hype.
