Speaking to The Guardian, the rapper – who has previously remixed Athlete – said he thinks unlikely collaborations work well.
“I wouldn’t mind doing something with…what’s his name again? James Blunt,” he said.
When asked if he was joking, he replied: “No! Because he’s so straight and straightforward. Imagine him on one of these weird beats doing a chorus or something, and being so earnest and sincere. That’s beyond abstract. That’s beyond avant-garde.”
‘Slime And Reason’, Roots Manuva‘s new album, is released on August 25.
