releasing singles on his own Full Cycle imprint as well as giving Bryan Gee outstanding cuts that have contributed to shape the drum and bass sound throughout the years. Roni Size managed to reach a mainstream audience through his platinum selling Reprazent act, theBreakbeat Era project and the recent production work for the critically acclaimed Tali album while keeping his drum and bass credentials with strong releases on both V and Full Cycle.

‘Return To V’ shows every side of Roni Size’ talent, and is the album he has wanted to do for a very long time, free to follow his fertile inspiration without feeling the pressure of a major label. While ‘The Streets’ and ‘Out Of Breath’ cater for the rough, exciting and uncompromising dancefloors worldwide, ‘Sing’ captures more of the original acid-house spirit. The gorgeous, Marvin Gaye-esque vocals of ‘Want Your Body’, the dancehall flavas of the infectious ‘Rise Up’, and the laid-back hip hop rhythms of ‘Time’ widen dramatically the scope of the album, with ‘No More’, featuring Beverley Knight and Dynamite, delivering a strong and poignant message with an unforgettable hook not heard since Shy Fx’ ‘Shake Ur Body’ stormed the charts two years ago.

‘Out Of Breath’, featuring Rahzel will be the first single taken from the album. One of the most requested tracks when Roni Size DJs, it will be released as an exclusive download from the 12th September on and other sites, a week ahead of the physical release.

With plenty more gems to come from this 18-track strong album, ‘Return To V’ is the sound of an obscenely inspired and gifted producer bearing his soul. Drum and bass’ most prominent ambassador is destined to set new standards and spread the appeal of the genre through extensive touring this autumn.
