Roni Size - 'Brown Paper Bag' (1997)
You'll always remember when you lost your dignity!
Roni Size, another artist to add to the already impressive Bristol dance scene alumni. As a distant cousin of Hip Hop, I was fairly into drum and bass at the time the Mercury Prize winning 'New Forms' came out. For me the track, 'Brown Paper Bag' was incredible with it's double bass intro which created a fabulous tension before the beat kicked in.
I remember hearing this track at this D n' B club in China Town with a few friends after work. We were still in uniform and probably looked liked dweebs but after a few drinks it didn't matter. As soon as I heard the few bars of that bass line I bolted as coherently as possible to the nearest speaker. Half proficiency level one front crawl and half reggae moon stomp, I proceeded to mash up the dancefloor much to the horror of my collegues. Covered in goosebumps and with a big smile, I didn't care....it was so good to hear it excruciatingly loud!
