What you have here is in fact largely a series of re-works by a talented producer who, for reasons best known to himself, goes by the moniker Wrong Tom. Big Dada first came across Wrong Tom a few months before the releaase of Roots Manuva’s album, "Slime & Reason". The DJ and producer (whose previous credits includes work for Lynval Golding’s Pama International & Trojan Records) got in touch asking if he could bash out a dub version of the lead single for that campaign, "Buff Nuff". When Big Dada heard the result they immediately commissioned a series of mixes which, turned round in about a fortnight, became the bonus disc for the limited edition version of "Slime & Reason". Two years on and Tom, with moral support from Mr Manuva, has turned in an album which covers all four of Roots Manuva’s main albums, plus tracks from "Dub Come Save Me" and "Alternately Deep" and a brand new collaboration with Mr Manuva and Ricky Ranking on lead single "Jah Warriors". Tom decided to re-imagine each track as if his re-work was in fact the orignal version of the tune from a previous decade. Hence "Motion 5000" becomes classic roots groove "Motion ’82", whereas something like "Rebuff" sees "Buff Nuff" return as vintage digi-dub. The project is approached with such conviction and skill that many of the tunes become hard to place in their orignal context, so it really does feel as if these funky, skanking, shuffling little numbers are in fact the ground zero of the Manuva experience.
