Roni Size

(V, Full Cycle, Reprazent, Firefox, Mask, Gang Related, Scorpio, Breakbeat Era)

Roni Size grew up in the Bristol where he was exposed to the burgeoning hip hop scene through local sounds systems and house parties. Expelled from school as a teenager, he tuned in to his brother's collection of Studio One reggae, eventually helping him construct a home studio. He began spending time at a local youth club scheme called the Basement Project, learning the basics of music production.

Eventually purchasing a sampler, he set up the Full Cycle label in 1992 unleashing Music Box with collaborator, Die. The label's distinctive sound, twisting up jazz breaks with dancefloor energy and infusing it with dub, '50s be-bop and Motown.

Roni came up with the masterplan of forming a D'n'B all star group to release on a major label. He brought in his MC (Dynamite) and a female singer (Onallee) and the Reprazent project with Suv, Die and Krust on Talkin' Loud went on to win the coveted Mercury Music Prize on August 28th, 1997.

The success of New Forms led to worldwide tours by the award winning live show and the opportunity to produce tracks for movie soundtracks and remix some of the worlds biggest artists (U2, Sarah McLachlan, Janet Jackson) as well as cool ones (Masters At Work, Basement Jaxx).
