“Coming back with new music is a big moment for me,” says Size on his return. “Life’s moved on – my kids are going through university. Music – and particularly electronic music – has changed and there are people out there who don’t know who I am; I’ve never rested on reputation so I’ve had to re-evaluate, up sticks and develop a new sound again. That’s where we are now. I’m living between Bristol and London, where I’m working out of Metropolis Studios finishing both albums. Reprazent and I will be touring this year and we can’t wait to get out on the road again.”
Size currently has two live dates in his diary and can be see at the following festivals.
Guilfest (ACM Stage) (July 19)
Boardmasters (Unleashed Stage) (August 8)
There are no further details on the Reprazent album but it is due out next year and will be the follow-up to 2008 record ‘New Forms²’.
