Banana Skank EP

Big Dada
This is a cause for celebration! Rodney Smith has been back in the studio, making his own beats without any minors near the production boards. Phew. Thankfully, this EP culminates in two yardie dubwise beasts called 'Natural' and 'Part Time', both featuring long-time collaborator Kope, who is unfortunately overshadowed by Manuva's legendary flow. But it's the beats that deserve special attention; wicked echobox effects and killer basslines combine to produce his best thing since 'Witness'.
