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.
Having debuted earlier this year at the Oval Space and since showcased at Moovin Festival, The Downs and Hospitality in the Park, before coming back to the UK next year Roni Size will be playing live on an impressive tour through Australia, New Zealand and the US.
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.
On 10th November, Roni Size & Reprazent will celebrate New Forms 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.
Since its announcement, this highly anticipated re-issue has seen a wide range of support from the likes of RA, Mixmag, DJ Mag, Boiler Room, TRAX Mag and Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 who premiered one of the album’s most sought-after dub plates, the “Trust Me VIP 2017 Remix”.
The New Forms 20th Anniversary Deluxe Re-issue is out 10th November 2017 via Mercury Records / Universal Music
