We are delighted to be launching a new series of events with Boiler Room’s chief programmer Gabriel Szatan. These events will focus on classics from the modern era and how they influenced the scene around them. Our first event will feature the incredible Roni Size and his iconic Reprazent ‘New Forms’ album.

Roni’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.

Join us at The Ace Hotel’s Miranda in London to dig deep into the making of ‘New Forms’, the inspiration behind the album and the legacy it has created.

Following an in depth discussion with Roni we will be featuring a full album playback on our world class audiophile sound system.
