Roni Size recently announced UK tour dates featuring his new audio visual live show, and revealed plans for more shows later this year. Debuting at London’s Oval Space tonight, the new hardware show will also hit Moovin Festival in August, and The Downs Festival and Hospitality In The Park in September. The combined live instrument and hardware show features state of the art production and 3D effect projection mapping in the form of the ‘light box'; and will be the first time Roni has performed the Mercury Prize winning album 'New Forms' as a solo performer.
Roni will be playing both originals and remixes from ‘New Forms’, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. The Oval Space performance marks his first return to the British capital since apparently selling out the Roundhouse weeks in advance. Roni will be joined by fellow Full Cycle co-founder DJ Krust.
Forthcoming UK and European DJ shows for Roni include Glastonbury, Fabric, Greenman, Soundwave, D Festival and many more. US shows will take place from the end of June and throughout July.
Roni recently announced a new radio show on Worldwide FM; every first Thursday of the month he’ll curate a six hour Sound System Special focusing on D&B. More details via: http://worldwidefm.net.
