Roni Size is master of his domain, ruling over the drum 'n' bass world in his increasingly larger throne. This time he lays down the law taking full dictatorship of his latest release, Touching Down, by writing, producing, and mixing the entire album himself.
Touching Down includes tracks that Roni Size has featured during his DJ performances, such as "Sound Advice" and "Scrambled Eggs." "Forget me Knots" and "Vocoda Funk" are sure to become dancefloor regulars as well.
For dnb peasants, this is a royal feast that all are invited to partake in. Less experimental than Reprazement's New Forms, Touching Down is perfectly executed dnb, brimming with dark, menacing beats thar are continuously dropped under contrastingly light melodies.
