Roll Deep "Green Light"

Hot on the heels of their #1 hit 'Good Times', Roll Deep are back with their brand new smash 'Green Light'!

Grime pioneers Roll Deep, return to assail the UK Charts with their new single, 'Green Light', on August 15th on Relentless / Virgin Records.

Roll Deep put all the cynics to rest with their last 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! They now hold the record for the longest running No. 1 this year (jointly with Owl City). To date they have sold over 300,000 singles.

'Green Light' continues the London collective's more popular direction. The song contrast's Roll Deep’s street savvy lyrical twists with a throbbing electro bassline and the guest vocalist's hook driven vocals. Add them all together and they have themselves another sure fire hit.

Roll Deep’s line-up has continued to evolve since the 2005 release of their debut album ‘In At The Deep End’, yet the collective still boasts the talents of founder members Wiley, Breeze, Scratchy, Flow Dan and Danny Weed, as well as crew veterans Brazen, Manga, J2K and Target.

Roll Deep emerged from the mean streets of East London, and soon became the influential figurehead as the then nascent grime scene began to earn mainstream attention. Roll Deep’s live performances took them across Europe, America and Japan and included support shows with Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent. This summer they are taking their live show to Glastonbury, Wirless and Wakestock festival and will continue to tour the UK and beyond.

Other notable artists that have flowed through the Roll Deep ranks or have been associated with them include Dizzee Rascal and Tinchy Stryder.

Roll Deep are in the studio conjuring more magic for their new album due out in the autumn With grime now embraced by the masses, Roll Deep have reclaimed their throne.
