Biography

Part of the same Bristol scene that produced Tricky, Massive Attack and Nellee Hooper, it took drum and bass pioneer Roni Size a little longer to establish himself as one of the UK's most innovative DJ/producers. Starting out as a house and reggae DJ in the late 1980s, he was at the forefront as the breakneck rhythms of jungle started to emerge in the 1990s, founding his own label WTP (Where's the Part) in 1993. Adding live musicians to the mix under the name Reprazent, his big commercial breakthrough came with the Mercury Music Prize-winning album New Forms (1997). It proved a seminal record for the genre, mixing together drum and bass, jazz, reggae, breakbeat and hip hop, and shot Size to fame overnight with the single Brown Paper Bag becoming a club classic. He went on to work with Rage Against The Machine's Zack de la Rocha and Wu Tang's Method Man on In The Mode (2000) and Beverly Knight and Jocelyn Brown on Return To V (2004), and remains one of dance music's most respected producers.
