It is 20 years to the day that the Mercury Prize winning album from 1997 was released. Roni Size / Reprazent’s timeless debut ‘New Forms’ changed music for us in a big way.

Roni Size brought the Bristol drum ‘n’ bass sound to a much wider audience’s attention with the fusion of electronic and live parts in a truly unique way. The recent reinvention and live performances have brought this sound to a whole new audience once again.

Originally released on Gilles Peterson’s trailblazing Talkin’ Loud imprint, not many albums can claim to have been as influential to us in our lifetimes.
