Where do you start with an artist like Goldie?
Perhaps it’s best to start with the title of his greatest album, Timeless. An all-time classic, not just of jungle or drum’n'bass but of dance music in general, its title describes its creator like few other words could.
Everything about Goldie, you see – his role as leader of the Metalheadz label and club night, his acting appearances in James Bond films, British soaps and more, his B-boy and graffiti background, his design work, Maestro, his smile, the fact that only recently he was lording it up with Prince Harry at the Silverstone Grand Prix – is timeless and iconic.
To celebrate his Fabric CD, Goldie’s also contributed an old school session to FACT’s mix series, featuring a number of early Rufige Kru productions. According to his management, “he got into the studio and found some old records, and got inspired to do an all ’90s mix. It’s all pre-94 hardcore/jungle. 75% of the tunes are his”. Really, who are we to argue?
