Roots Manuva returns tonight. With a single track as a precursor to future, undisclosed releases, he shows that he puts his heart and soul into every track, resulting in heartfelt hip hop. Stolen Youth is the final song in the Channel 4 Series Skins, who provided a full brief for him to write the track. Despite the extensive instruction, he makes the track his own: with trademark hard-as-nails voice and a slow moving beat, which could almost be dubstep.
