Rolling Deeper

Contrary to previous reports, Roll Deep have now signed an album deal with Relentless Records after negotiations with Island broke down. Although the finer details are sketchy, the move has been confirmed by a spokesperson for Roll Deep who said “We’re really happy to finally have the chance to get our music further out there. People are going to be surprised by what’s coming.” Rumour has it the salsa inflicted ‘Shake A Leg’ (currently receiving some dubplate plays) may be the first single. Relentless, who have had recent success with the likes of Joss Stone and Jay Sean, have also just snapped up Lethal B ‘Pow'. It seems the label is securing it’s street connections again, after all let’s not forget it was Relentless who shook up the urban sector introducing acts such as So Solid, Artful Dodger and Daniel Bedingfield to the mainstream (no points for that swag Romeo album though).

Roll Deep have also teamed up with Vauxhall for the Rolling Deeper DVD. A thirty minute outing, it features err, cars, motorbikes, more cars, cars and err, Roll Deep. You can see them hanging out, sleeping, exclusive footage of Wiley and Riko in the studio, and hear some deep new music. A tad short it will leave you wanting more but that’s the whole point, right? Keep your eyes peeled. (Word is that there’s a further five Roll Deep DVD’s ready to go).
