    sampling hip hop funk and soul inspired by local crews 2Bad City Rockers Plus One UD4 FBI and the kings of them all The Wild Bunch who he had followed religiously from the age of 13 But bit by bit as the Basement Project studio began to tour other youthclubs they d see all these kids coming back after the weekend a little bit wide eyed a little bit crazy haired a little bit excitable and bringing these tapes asking how they could make music like this And bit by bit he was drawn into rave Chance meetings around this time with DJ Krust who d already had a breakbeat based chart hit as part of Fresh 4 with DJ Die and with the Circus Warp free party soundsystem gave Roni inroads into the rave world and quickly he and his friends began to make their own take on the sounds they heard This was the hardcore years still but we quickly realised he smiles that the bits we liked in the rave were when it dropped to just a breakbeat and the sub bass even if that was just for a bar or two and we decided that we wanted to extend that And as simply as that the understanding of sampling and programming that he had built up as he built up his studio had a brand new purpose and his part in a musical revolution was assured By 1992 rave was splintering in many directions and plenty of people were accelerating it emphasising the bass and creating what was starting to become known as jungle Only a very few though were doing it with the finesse and sense of rolling groove that Roni and his friends did He acknowledges Goldie 4 Hero and the early acts on Moving Shadow as pioneers of the sound and admits being absolutely infatuated with LTJ Bukem s Music but really even these pioneers weren t doing quite what the Bristolians did We didn t use hardly any of the rave and techno influences he remembers but because we were DJs already we dug deep into our record collections for jazz funk and soul things to sample anything that would give it that vibe that we loved Any true junglist knows how it went from there In 1993 Roni would release first via the Circus Warp affiliated WTP label then he would sign with the legendary V Recordings and a year later he and his crew would found the Full Cycle imprint just as jungle drum n bass was exploding into the national consciousness It didn t take long for the mainstream industry to come knocking but especially given DJs Krust and Suv s bad experiences with labels as part of Fresh 4 the Bristol crew went in with their eyes wide open determined to maintain their independence When we got signed to Talkin Loud says Roni we maintained our own labels so knew that if it went wrong we could go

  • MISSION OF BURMA - Opium Rooms
    Miller and bassist vocalist Clint Conley fresh from the break up of the band Moving Parts decided to join forces with drummer vocalist Peter Prescott who had just parted company with The Molls M O B worked as a trio until the summer of 1979 when they drafted Martin Swope to provide what was commonly seen as the x factor in their sound Swope who had worked with Miller in bands around their hometown of Ann Arbor MI added tape loops and sonic manipulations from a visually unobtrusive position behind the soundboard that often left audiences wondering how the trio on stage were creating the sounds that they were hearing In June 1980 Burma released their debut 7 Academy Fight Song on producer Rick Harte s fledgling Ace Of Hearts label Still regarded as a high water mark of a Boston music scene that is rich with history the record quickly sold out of its 7 500 copy pressing unprecedented for an independent single at that time With increased touring and a steadily developing profile the band returned to the studio to record the Signals calls and marches EP Released in July 1981 the six songs showed a marked growth from the tightly wound blistering attack of Academy The EP s opener the Conley penned anthem That s When I Reach For My Revolver quickly became the band s calling card The song has since been covered by amongst others Sugar Catherine Wheel and Moby other artists who have covered the band s material include R E M Spinanes Pegboy and Soul Asylum Concise in its presentation yet sprawling in scope the EP ranges from the two minute art punk bullet of This Is Not A Photograph to the majestic All World Cowboy Romance In April 1982 the band released their second 7 single Trem Two b w OK No Way the a side of which also appeared on the VS LP which followed in October of that year A dozen furious tracks the album met with press raves both at home aural surprises lurk in the chordal folds martial chants erupt suddenly into harmonies a raw power dissertation a solid compelling piece of work The New York Times and abroad a fascinating turbulent and worthy debut full of slanted timing trimmings and a teasing strength and coarseness Sounds UK When extreme stage volume exacerbated Miller s tinnitus the band embarked on a farewell tour and subsequently disbanded Their final shows in March 1983 were recorded and in 1985 Ace Of Hearts compiled and released THE HORRIBLE TRUTH ABOUT BURMA a document of otherwise unreleased songs that fully captured the glorious roaring sound and bewildering chaos that characterized the Burma live experience A video of the band s final Boston performance at the Bradford Hotel is available through Atavistic Video In 1988 Rykodisc released an eponymous compilation which gathered all of Signals and VS selected single tracks unreleased songs and two selections from THE HORRIBLE TRUTH Clocking in at 80
