Roots Manuva is somewhat of a legend in certain circles, having first released an album in 1999. He also appeared on Gorrilaz sophomore LP: Demon Days. The South London-born rapper released his last album in 2008, and Butterfly Crab Walk seems to be a lead-up to a newer LP.

I’m going to be honest here: I have no idea what this song is about.

Drenched in reverb and delay, Butterfly Crab Walk is a great track heavily influenced by dub. I’m also 90% sure he says “bubble bath” at some point in the track, which makes the track that much better.
Intelligiability aside, the track has incredible bass groove to it, and a catchy chorus that makes me remiss that summer is almost over. I’d love more tracks like this to play whilst sitting poolside.
