Roni Size

Womb's drum'n'bass party 06S turns ten this month, and they've got a special guest in tow. Roni Size was one of the leading lights of the jungle scene that ran parallel to Bristol's trip-hop movement, and replicated the success of local heroes Portishead when his group Reprazent earned the Mercury Music Prize in 1997 for their tastefully jazz-inflected album New Forms. All ancient history, of course, but much like his junglist contemporary Goldie, Size has been relying on former glories a lot lately: he reconvened Reprazent in 2008, touring a heavily edited 'deluxe edition' of New Forms, and is apparently working on a new album with the group. Here's hoping that his latest Tokyo date doesn't spend too much time rehashing the past; if it does, just head to the Womb Lounge area for a percussion-heavy samba party with the Super Carioca Brothers instead.
