RONI SIZE (UK) + FABIO & GROOVERIDER (UK)
(Melb Cup Public Holiday Eve)
The last three years have seen RONI SIZE remind us of the raw drive and ambition that originally propelled him, his crew and his city to pioneer game-status over 20 years ago. In 2014 he returned with his first new material since 2008. In 2015 he had Reprazent back on the road. In 2016 he and Krust re-launched Full Cycle.
This year he's thrown himself in at a brand new deep-end. Marking the milestone 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking Mercury Music Award-winning album New Forms, he's developed an a/v concept that will provide a whole new perspective on his and Reprazent's seminal album. This is the first time he's performed the album solo (using original stems and additional instrumentation on keyboards, sampler and drum machines) and it incorporates 3D mapping technology and a lightbox cage to create the visual experience...
While trends come and go, when it comes to drum'n'bass, FABIO & GROOVERIDER stand firm. Both were there right at the beginning, behind the decks as house and UK hardcore gradually transformed into jungle and d'n'b. Both have pursued boundary-pushing careers in their own right - Fabio refining his own "liquid funk" sound and running his own label Creative Source, Grooverider DJing across the world and pushing artists like Photek and Doc Scott on his own Prototype imprint. But their partnership has remained unshakeable - their early sets at London sweatbox Rage remain the stuff of legend, while their long-running Radio 1 show was crucial in cementing the genre's longevity. Who better, then, to give a drum'n'bass history lesson?
Melbourne you're in for a treat this Cup Eve with undeniably the best jungle & old skool lineup to hit the city since.... don't miss this!
