On Friday, Big Dada let go a first free download tune (»Butterfly Crab Walk«, listen and download below) from the upcoming Roots Manuva meets Wrong Tom LP »Duppy Writer«.

That LP is

actually a collection of reworks by Wrong Tom. The Staines-based DJ/producer, who has worked with Pama International, Trojan and, er, Hard Fi, contacted Big Dada to ask if he could fashion a dub version of Roots Manuva’s single »Buff Nuff«. Impressed with what he turned out, Big Dada commissioned a series of mixes which became the bonus disc on the limited edition version of Roots’ Slime & Reason LP.

Duppy Writer is an expanded version of that bonus disc, and is being released with new artwork from Tony McDermott. It covers not just tracks from Slime & Reason but all four of Roots Manuva’s main studio albums, as well as tracks from Dub Come Save Me and Alternately Deep. (via Fact Magazine)

There’s also a brand new collaboration between Roots Manuva and Ricky Ranking, »Jah Warriors«, which will be released as single.

This is the complete tracklist:

01. Butterfly Crab Walk
02. Chin Up
03. Duppy Writer (Skit)
04. Worl’ A Mine
