A History of Drum & Bass: with Roni Size on Tuesday 21st August 2018
For the latest in our Funzing Talks series, we bring Mercury Award winning DJ & Producer Roni Size to Motion in his home town of Bristol, for a unique, one-off evening on The History of Drum & Bass – seen through the eyes of one of its true pioneers.
We delve into how the genre has developed over the years, the influences of Roni’s own career, and look forward to the future.
This talk will be an interactive 'In Conversation With' format - hosted by music journalist Jonathan Cook.
Roni Size's whole life has been about building something new from whatever was around him. From Bristol youth club 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.
The anniversary re-release of New Forms garnered huge support across digital and print media as well as on radio. With premieres from MixMag and Tsugi, rave reviews and coverage by NME, Fact, DJ Mag, Clash and many others along with multiple plays on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1 Xtra, Roni has cemented his position at the top of the game.
