When traversing the timeline of Drum & Bass, you’ll come across few bigger footprints than those left by Goldie. The midlands born producer, aka Clifford Price, is widely regarded as the cornerstone of UK underground DnB - a scene whose roots would have struggled to push their way into the mainstream without the help of seminal tracks such as 1994’s ‘Inner City Life’.
Almost two decades down the line and Goldie is still on top form, with concerns for legacy and innovation spread out in equal measure. His latest album, Journey Man, offers a steady bridge for DnB purists and newly enlightened fans to cross paths, with many a lesson in the art of breaks handed out along the way.
You can listen to Journey Man below via Spotify.
Never one to shy away from the DJing circuit, Goldie has a packed summer schedule ahead of him, with one stop in Birmingham for MADE Festival promising a special reggae set from the DnB man. Later into the summer Goldie makes his way to the capital for SW4 before heading to the golden shorelines of Croatia for Outlook festival.
