Goldie is a total original, a multi talented shape shifter, who’s sold more than 3 million records worldwide.
Against all odds, and despite a traumatic childhood, he succeeded in unleashing his boundless creativity from a very young age. He transformed an underground British sound into a mainstream international movement with the evolution of drum & bass, collaborating along the way with major pop icons.
In 1986 Goldie was immersed in the subway art and Hip Hop culture of New York. He worked on a small stall selling ‘grills’; the gold teeth that have become synonymous with the man today.
After 5 years Goldie returned to the UK to live in London. It was here that he discovered ‘Rage’ one of the biggest club nights in London. Seeing Fabio and Grooverider playing there transformed things for Goldie, with the genesis of a game changing musical career. He got the taste of ‘Jungle’ and its energy and wanted more. True to form he put himself in the driving seat and created the incredible and hauntingly dark tune, ‘Terminator’ in 1992.
‘Terminator’ was the originative piece of work associated with Goldie’s invention of time stretching; this was the discovery of a unique sound made when running digital break beats through an HF Harmonizer usually used for guitars. The effect extends the beat without changing the pitch.
In 1994 as Goldie oversaw the birth and growth of his drum & bass label Metalheadz, he found time to craft a debut album, which sold 250,000 copies. This epic creation, containing a 21 minute symphonic track is just as it is named; ‘Timeless’.
It was around this time that the far-famed ‘Metalheadz Sunday Sessions’ club night was launched, which achieved legendary status at London’s Blue Note club. The Metalheadz night was a party that will go down in history as one of drum & bass’ most important, it is frequently cited by the genre’s luminaries in spreading the sound worldwide.
Goldie has also mixed the Ministry of Sound’s ‘Masterpiece’ series, which saw the artist curate a three-disc journey through his own influences and personal favourites.
Constantly evolving and reinventing himself Goldie’s life weaves many tales of urban blight and spiritual faith. It is with art though, be it through the medium of paint, music or acting Goldie has broken the chains of limitations. He has learnt that the dark and difficult are as much needed as the light and easy, by allowing all of life’s colours to penetrate him he is more integrated and whole.
Goldie is self creativity, new life, mystical union; otherwise known as alchemy.
