Roni Size’s whole life has been about building something new from whatever was around him. From Bristol youthclub parties, through the white heat of rave and the founding moments of jungle and drum’n’bass, to transforming underground electronic music into something that could be played by a live band on the biggest arena and festival stages, he has at each stage created completely afresh – not just a sound or style but an entire methodology of how music can be made. And each time, that new creation has reflected his heritage, his surroundings and the precise moment in which he’s operating.
20 years ago, The Mercury Prize win for his ‘New Forms’ album brought D’n’B to the forefront of dance-music news, making even the rest of the industry – where reactions had up until that point been bemused – sit up and pay attention. For several years thereafter Roni and team were on top of the world, succeeding as solo artists as well as a collective, maintaining underground credibility yet receiving Brit awards and even collaborating with some of the biggest names in hip hop.
2016 was a vintage year for Roni. Live shows included Ram Records’ NYE show at O2 Academy Brixton, a headline show at the BBC 6 Music festival 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, Blissfields, NASS, EDC, Dour, Boomtown, Frequency, Lowlands, Creamfields, SW4, Outlook, and many more. Roni relaunched Full Cycle Records with fellow co-founder, DJ Krust, with the releases drawing praise from The Wire, Dummy, UKF, Mista Jam, 6 Music, Gilles Peterson, Radio 1, 1Xtra, DJ Mag and beyond.
It was in 2017, as we fully appreciated the legacy that Roni has created for drum’n’bass, that the next chapter began. Roni toured his groundbreaking new audio visual live show, a combined live instrument and hardware show that features state of the art production and 3D effect projection mapping celebrating 20 years of New Forms. Roni took the groundbreaking live show on the road to festivals in the UK and Europe as well as on extensive tours of the US, New Zealand and Australia with no let up as he also DJ’ed at the very best clubs and festivals throughout the globe.
The anniversary re-release of New Forms (on Universal and featuring the live set together with brand new remixes, edits and tracks) garnered huge support across digital and print media as well as on radio. With premieres from MixMag and Tsugi, rave reviews and coverage by NME, Fact, DJ Mag, Clash and many others along with multiple plays on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1 Xtra, Roni cemented his position at the top of the game.
The man from Bristol shows no signs of slowing down, having already announced UK and European live tours for 2018 and being in high demand with the world’s best festivals and events. With the promise of exciting brand new Roni music coming this year, the sky is the limit for Roni Size.
—- SENJA —-
Senja is a DJ who mixes in many styles of high quality music from down tempo beats, classic hip hop & Bass Music. Starting off his turntable trade as a sonic foot soldier, he currently curates Sub City under the Revision Music brand, presenting the best in high quality Drum & Bass & Jungle.
Senja cites musical influences through a diverse selection where quality and timelessness are vital. In the past 8 years, he has been spinning around Singapore’s night life circuit, plus playing one off DJ sets in Bangkok, Bali, New York and Kuala Lumpur.
His style oscillates between rocking the dance in a tight intimate room, to laying down smooth beats to vibe out to.
Focused on promoting the best in high quality music, Senja’s versatility spans various genres: from the raw sounds of Jungle-D&B to futuristic head nodding Hip Hop, and essential forays into Dub, House, Afrobeat, Funk, Soul & Jazz.
—- OMJ —-
Part of a new generation of Singaporean drum & bass DJs, Joshua Chen better known as OMJ first picked DJing up after watching one too many episodes of Drum&BassArena weekly D&BTV stream. Three years later, he emerged from the bedroom, taking second place in a DJ competition under the then-humourous, now-embarrassing moniker OHMYJOSH.
Following a conscription-induced hiatus, Joshua has since returned to the scene with a less jokey alias and a more refined selection, enthusiastically and passionately taking on deck duties every month for SUB CITY, one of Singapore’s only drum & bass club nights. Hailed by Bandwagon Asia as a new-school prodigy, Joshua favours everything from jungle and footwork to deep, dark half-time stinkers, as well as the occasional cheeky jump-up banger. His eclectic mix of sounds crosses the entire 170bpm spectrum, leaving the dancefloor waving their lighters in the front, skanking their butts off in the middle and stroking their chins in the back all at the same time.
