One Size fits all for this music pioneer (Created 9/19/2013)
It's a real jungle out there – at least for Roni Size. One of the most respected names of a genre that incorporates influences from other genres (think reggae/dub/dancehall), Size has taken a slow and steady approach to become one of the sound's greatest champions.
It certainly wasn't a quick rise to fame for Size, but his long list of accomplishments – producer and label owner among them – helped to increase his popularity. The breakout success of his debut album "New Forms" also didn't hurt, finally helping to cement his status as a pioneer in the industry. Along with Reprazant, a drum and bass collective, "New Forms" captured Britain's prestigious Mercury Award for best album and set Size's career on a whole new course.
Of course for an artist like Size, looking back never hurts. He's grown from an at-risk youth to hooking up with labelmates DJ Krust, Suv, and DJ Die to form the Full Cycle music label. With a new outlet to the drum'n'bass scene, Size was able to count among his credits "It's a Jazz Thing," and Krust's "Jazz Note." The success of "New Forms," however, eventually put Size at the top of the electronica genre.
Size has been plenty busy since then, having returned to the Reprazent project with "In the Mode" in 2000, and sitting in with everyone from Method Man to Rage Against the Machine. Though it didn't help with a cross-over fan base, solo productions like 2002's "Touching Down" and 2005's "Return to V Size" grew his audience, and "New Forms 2" was eventually released back in 2008.
Size is currently touring with English dubstep producer Rusko.
