Premiered today via Mixmag, Roni Size shares a brand new, unheard track ‘Hold The Front Page’. Forthcoming on CD4 of the 20th Anniversary Deluxe Re-issue, ‘Hold The Front Page’ will also appear on a limited edition 12”.

 

Another teaser from the deluxe reissue, this sonic treat comes hot on the heels of the announcement of the UK leg of the New Forms Live Anniversary Tour. This February 2018, Roni Size will take his ground breaking audio-visual live show on an exclusive 4-night tour; first hitting his home town of Bristol and then onto London, Birmingham and Leeds. A combined live instrument and hardware show, this unique performance will feature state of the art production and 3D effect projection mapping in the form of the ‘light box’; and marks the first time Roni has performed the Mercury Prize winning album New Forms as a solo performer.


The live show is a high-energy audio and visual celebration of New Forms, drawing on the original tracks whilst bringing them right up to date with 2017 edits and remixes.

 

On November 10th 2017, Roni Size & Reprazent will release the deluxe 4CD / 2LP reissue of New Forms. To commemorate 20 years of this era-defining drum ‘n’ bass album, the package will feature a special New Forms 20th anniversary live hardware mix programmed by Roni featuring previously unreleased remixes and re-edits, as well as remixes from drum ‘n’ bass legends such as Grooverider, Source Direct and Krust (previously only released on vinyl) and the 2017 remaster of the original 2CD / LP.

One of the definitive electronic albums of the 90s, New Forms brought drum ‘n’ bass into the mainstream. Fighting off industry heavyweights including the Spice Girls, The Prodigy, Suede, Radiohead, Primal Scream and The Chemical Brothers, Roni Size & Reprazent won the 1997 Mercury Music Prize, going on to sell 300,000 units in the UK with its release on BBC Radio 1 DJ Gilles Peterson’s Talkin’ Loud.

Roni Size shares “Trust Me VIP 2017 Remix” highly sought after dubplate


To get more of the very latest news faster than anyone then subscribe to our feed : CLICK HERE

This week, the pioneering drum ‘n’ bass producer Roni Size unveiled the first exclusive track from the forthcoming Deluxe Reissue of New Forms and shared details of his forthcoming 20th Anniversary USA Tour. Originally released as the B-side to ‘Share The Fall’, ‘Trust Me’ has been given a special VIP upgrade and will appear as an exclusive on CD4 as well as on the limited edition 12”.
 

Speaking to Drum And Bass HQ about the track, Roni Said:
 
“The underlying discussion in the world of drum ‘n’ bass and jungle is always around dub plates that never came out.  Trust Me VIP has always been highly sought after and often mentioned by well-known DJs and producers… well now the wait is well and truly over!”

 
This November 10th 2017, Roni Size & Reprazent celebrate the 20th anniversary of New Forms with a deluxe 4CD / 2LP reissue. To commemorate this era-defining drum ‘n’ bass album, the package will feature a special New Forms 20th anniversary live hardware mix programmed by Roni featuring previously unreleased remixes and re-edits, remixes from drum ‘n’ bass legends such as Grooverider, Source Direct and Krust (previously only released on vinyl) and the 2017 remaster of the original 2CD / LP.

 

One of the definitive electronic albums of the 90s, New Forms brought drum ‘n’ bass into the mainstream. Fighting off industry heavyweights including the Spice Girls, The Prodigy, Suede, Radiohead, Primal Scream and The Chemical Brothers, Roni Size & Reprazent won the 1997 Mercury Music Prize, going on to sell 300,000 units in the UK with its release on BBC Radio 1 DJ Gilles Peterson’s Talkin’ Loud.

 

 
20 years since being propelled into the mainstream, drum ‘n’ bass continues to thrive with artists including Chase and Status, Sigma, and Wilkinson dominating the charts, all of whom acknowledge Roni Size & Reprazent as forefathers of the scene. Whilst Grime, a genre with a similarly unique cultural heritage, enjoys its moment – it feels like perfect timing to honour New Forms as the seminal milestone in British music as it is.

 

New Forms will be reissued 10th November, 2017.

Roni Size & Reprazent to reissue ‘New Forms’ – the 1997 Mercury Music Prize Winning Album


To get more of the very latest news faster than anyone then subscribe to our feed : CLICK HERE

This November, New Forms by Roni Size & Reprazent celebrates its 20th anniversary with a deluxe 4CD / 2LP reissue. To commemorate this era-defining drum ‘n’ bass album, the package will feature a New Forms 20th anniversary live hardware mix programmed by Roni featuring previously unreleased remixes and re-edits, remixes from drum ‘n’ bass legends such as Grooverider, Source Direct and Krust (previously only released on vinyl) and the 2017 remaster of the original 2CD / LP.

 

One of the definitive electronic albums of the 90s, New Forms brought drum ‘n’ bass into the mainstream. Fighting off industry heavyweights including the Spice Girls, The Prodigy, Suede, Radiohead, Primal Scream and The Chemical Brothers, Roni Size & Reprazent won the 1997 Mercury Music Prize, going on to sell 300,000 units in the UK with its release on BBC Radio 1 DJ Gilles Peterson’s Talkin’ Loud records.

 

Reprazent were a Bristol-based collective brought together by Roni that included DJs Die, Suv and Krust as well as Dynamite MC and vocalist Onallee. Akin to their fellow Bristolians Massive Attack, they grew up on a diverse diet of influences including street soul, hip hop, electro, reggae and dub. They weaved elements of each with the new electronic sounds of jungle and break-beats to create drum ‘n’ bass – of which New Forms is one of the defining masterpieces.

 

20 years since being propelled into the mainstream, drum ‘n’ bass continues to thrive with artists including Chase and Status, Sigma, and Wilkinson dominating the charts, all of whom acknowledge Roni Size & Reprazent as forefathers of the scene. Whilst Grime, a genre with a similarly unique cultural heritage, enjoys its moment – it feels like perfect timing to honour New Forms as the seminal milestone in British music as it is.

 

This Autumn to further celebrate 20 years of New Forms, Roni Size will take his ground breaking audio-visual live show to Hospitality in the Park, London on Saturday 23rd September before widely touring throughout the world (full schedule TBA). Having debuted earlier this year at the Oval Space and since showcased at Moovin Festival and The Downs, 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 marks the first time Roni has performed the Mercury Prize winning album ‘New Forms’ as a solo performer.

 

New Forms will be reissued 10th November, 2017.

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.
