  • Groundbreaking new production show debuts at London’s Oval Space this week.
  • Further shows include Moovin Festival, The Downs Festival, and Hospitality In The Park.
  • Roni confirms DJ dates at Glastonbury, Fabric, Greenman, and more.


Roni Size has announced UK tour dates featuring his groundbreaking new audio visual live show, and revealed plans for more shows later this year. Debuting at London’s Oval Space on 28th April, the new hardware show will also hit Moovin Festival in August, and The Downs Festival and Hospitality In The Park in September.


The combined live instrument and hardware show features state of the art production and 3D effect projection mapping in the form of the ‘light box’; and will be the first time Roni has performed the Mercury Prize winning album ‘New Forms’ as a solo performer. Roni will be playing both originals and remixes from ‘New Forms’, which celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year. The Oval Space performance marks his first return to the British capital since selling out the Roundhouse weeks in advance. Roni will be joined by fellow Full Cycle co-founder DJ Krust.


Forthcoming UK and European DJ shows for Roni include Glastonbury, Fabric, Greenman, Soundwave, D Festival and many more (full details below). US shows will take place from the end of June and throughout July (details to be revealed soon).


Roni recently announced a new radio show on Worldwide FM; every first Thursday of the month he’ll curate a six hour Sound System Special focusing on drum n bass.


2016 was a vintage year for Roni Size. Live shows included Ram Records’ NYE show at O2 Academy Brixton, a headline show at the BBC 6 Music festival in February, and a summer festival season that began at Love Saves the Day with a curated Full Cycle Stage Takeover for Arcadia Afterburner, and included Secret Garden Party, Evolution, Glastonbury (Glade headline performance), Blissfields, NASS, EDC, Dour, Boomtown, Frequency, Lowlands, Creamfields, SW4, Outlook, and many more.


Roni relaunched Full Cycle Records with fellow co-founder, DJ Krust, the releases drawing praise from The Wire, Dummy, UKF, Mista Jam, 6 Music, Gilles Peterson, Radio 1, 1Xtra, DJ Mag, and beyond. The label’s return in February coincided with a spring tour including packed out shows at the BBC 6 Music Festival Rampage, Band On The Wall, Village Underground and a 9 date North American Tour, with shows in Toronto, Washington DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and more.

LTJ BUKEM to play at Village underground 20/10/17

Tickets + info


Soundcrash presents an exclusive night with the master of Drum & Bass, delivering timeless back to back smashers alongside the illustrious Dynamite MC.


Few drum & bass DJs have attained the cult status LTJ Bukem has reached. His productions have proved to be truly timeless and it’s a testament to his tireless workrate and talent that he’s remained relevant whilst staying true to his dedication to real music. With an unparalleled selection packed full of exclusives, his sets are a joy for heads and newcomers alike.


Emerging out of the late 80’s as a DJ, LTJ Bukem discovered his passion for drum and bass when exploring the realms of jazz fusion. So it’s natural that when Bukem’s career as a DJ progressed in the early 90‘s and he found himself delving in to the studio, it was these frantic breakbeats in tandem with the melodic, yet almost awry basslines of jazz instrumentation that informed Bukem’s creations, developing a progressive and textured sound equal parts anthemic and tranquil. The album was titled ‘Logical Progression’ and marked Bukem as an innovator, a tag that has stuck through his work on his own esteemed Good Looking Records imprint, and still bears strong today as Bukem continues to DJ extensively across the globe under his ‘Progression Session’ banner.


“Making history since the start of the 1990’s”Fact


Dynamite MC started his career on pirate radio station, Crush FM in the early ‘90s. A key members of Roni Size’s Reprazent crew, Dynamite shared vocal duties with singer, Onallee on their debut album New Forms, winning the Mercury Music Prize in 1997.

DJ HYPE B2B DJ HAZARD *first ever London back to back set*



On Easter Thursday 13th April, Playaz is back, featuring an exclusive back-to-back set from DJ Hype and DJ Hazard, and very special guests, Bristollian bass loving duo My Nu Leng spinning their debut drum & bass set.


In the world of underground drum & bass there are few labels that match the significance of Playaz. Having now notched up over 150 shows that began at legendary London venue The End before relocating to the iconic super club Fabric, 2017 sees the start of a new chapter as the Playaz brand as it finds its new abode at the majestic Electric Brixton. After an unforgettable debut show at Electric in January, the Playaz family returns this Easter with a weighty line up featuring an all-star cast.


What makes this event incredibly special is that it will play host to the first ever London b2b set with Playaz legends DJs Hype & Hazard.The two Playaz bosses’ introduced the pairing to delighted fans at Boomtown last year and have since gone on to play a few select b2b sets across the UK but never before in their hometown!


Also joining the billing will be very special guests My Nu Leng. These guys are a force to be reckoned with, in short – a bass music phenomenon. They’ve pioneered their own signature sound from the outset with soul shaking basslines being a key ingredient to their success, so it’s no wonder then that this unstoppable duo’s love for bass heavy electronic stemmed from being huge fans of drum & bass music. Ahead of their SW4 festival appearance, where they will go b2b with d&b originator Goldie, they’ll be performing an exclusive drum & bass set for the first time ever, exclusively at Playaz.

The only festival you need to attend this year

The only festival you need to attend this year

By Pedro Jacob


It didn’t start off very well.


Let me set the scene for you.


End of July, the sun is high in the sky and the excitement is palpable.


About 30 twenty-something-year-olds crammed in a bus that started its journey in Huddersfield, heading south as it picked up ravers from all walks of life who had only one thing in mind – the leviathan drum and bass festival also known as Let It Roll.


Apart from the obvious, a few other things united us. An unwillingness to pay for the comfort of a flight to Prague, a natural predisposition towards getting the party started a day before everyone else and a loose interpretation of EU customs regulations.


As we were picked up at a service station in Edgware, the bus was already running 4 hours late since the tour organiser had been arrested before the journey had even begun, in what was communicated to us by his girlfriend as a civil protest-related kerfuffle – more on that towards the end of this post.


Spirits were high despite the delay and, as the bus weaved its way through central Europe towards Prague, the excitement was steadily rising to the point we could no longer contain ourselves. If our trip was a set, we were definitely getting to the drop.


After a couple of hours of circling the venue in what would have been a hilarious reenactment of every couple lost on a road trip if not for the very pressing desire to have my ear drums blasted out through my eyes by a world-class sound system, our bus drivers finally got us to our destination.


It was like letting a bunch of kids into a magical theme park.


In the haze that only a three-day rave can deliver, we explored sonic orgasms from the most basic tents to the most impressive stages, including the legendary Factory stage and the iconic LiR robot which makes up the main stage.


The aftermovie will give you a much better taste of what to expect than any personal account of mine.


From the fast breakbeats and pounding basslines of the classics like Andy C, Friction and Spor to the brain-melting sounds of Eatbrain’s neurofunk stage without forgetting the mellifluous liquid sounds provided by the likes of Etherwood & Hybrid Minds there was something in it for everyone.


With the famous opening show setting the tone, you stomp the floor for three days while you smile from ear to ear and thank the lucky stars you are there to enjoy it.


It’s only when the very last DJ leaves the decks and you’re left with the looming prospect of a 30-hour coach trip back to London, that you fully comprehend what you’ve just experienced.


It is unfair to mention some names like I did above but these were the ones that were stuck in my mind after my first experience in 2015. I went again in 2016, I’ll go again in 2017 and I can’t see myself anywhere else at the start of August for the foreseeable future.


Let It Roll presents a rich tapestry of drum and bass and all of its sub-genres and delivers a celebration of euphoric raving matched by no other festival.


I almost forgot to let you know what happened to the tour organiser.


We turned on our phones as soon as we crossed the channel to found out that the guy who essentially had made our epic weekend possible had been arrested on the lovely charge of violating his probation.


Turns out he couldn’t leave the country after he spent 14 years in prison as punishment for raping and killing a teenage boy.


Needless to say, I was extremely thankful for my beard as I perused the young faces that surrounded me.


The things we’ll do for an epic rave…
