Roni Size / Reprazent – New Forms

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.

Radio Days – DV #1

Way back when, well 26 September 2005 if we’re being exact, Dash ‘n’ Verve came into being as a radio show. Sadly for you guys we don’t have the recordings of that show, but we did find the playlists for every show we did.

Because it’s just not possible to recreate the wonder and energy of these shows as they happened, we’re going to compile YouTube playlists featuring all of the music played. You can listen in and if you like subscribe to the YouTube channel to get a sublime Sunday playlist to stick on in the background whilst you have your weekly roast.

So without further ado, here it is, the inaugural Dash ‘n’ Verve show.
