Few albums were as redefining as New Forms from Roni Size and Reprazent. Although it was largely seen as a drum and bass affair, the use of old school jazz samples juxtaposed against the modern and even futuristic sounds on New Forms held tight, as a new school playbook for electronic music at the time. Roni Size was awarded Britain's Mercury Prize and the album cemented his future as a DJ / producer. It was jazz ... it was hip hop ... it was drum and bass ... it was R n B ... it was industrial ... It was all of these things and more, and they all blended so seamlessly together.
