Grime pioneers Roll Deep who entered the charts at number 1 last month with their single, 'Green Light' have announced the “Winner Stays On Tour” – a 13 date UK outing starting February 11, 2011. Roll Deep put all the cynics to rest with their previous single, 'Good Times'. Not only did they hit the No. 1 spot on the UK charts, but they held the position for 3 consecutive weeks!
'Green Light' continues the London collective's more popular direction. The song contrasts Roll Deep’s street savvy lyrical twists with the guest vocalist's hook driven vocals and pours them over a throbbing electro bassline. Add them all together and they have themselves another number one single. Roll Deep’s line-up has continued to evolve and now boasts the talents of members Wiley, Breeze, Scratchy, Flow Dan, Danny Weed, Brazen, Manga, J2K and Target.
Roll Deep emerged from the streets of East London, and soon became the influential figurehead as the then nascent grime scene began to earn mainstream attention. With grime now embraced by the masses, Roll Deep have reclaimed their throne.
Roll Deep’s live performances took them across Europe, America and Japan. This summer saw them take their live show to Glastonbury, Wireless and Wakestock festivals and will continue to tour the UK and beyond playing everything from their classic tunes to their huge hit singles and hotly tipped new material. Don’t miss out on seeing Roll Deep live as they promise a show to remember:
