Iconic D&B industry figure and crossover celebrity Goldie has been working on new collaborative material with Flying Lotus and Burial. No man is bigger than his genre but for enduring popularity and public recognition the gold toothed former Eastenders and Snatch actor certainly runs it close. Unusually for somebody so well know in mainstream celebrity culture he has retained his credibility within D&B as part of the Metalheadz crew and established himself a firm legacy for remoulding Jungle in his own image.
Celebrating two decades of work within the scene Goldie is scheduled to release ‘The Alchemist: The Best Of Goldie 1992-2012’ on March 11th, but it the fresh materials including a new track on the compilation and these high profile collaborations ahead of a promised album that will really excite fans.
When quizzed the bass infused mainstay revealed the fresh output would see him “Working with real musicians, that’s it. I’ve kind of reinvented myself in that sense, of going back before ‘Timeless’… it feels like something’s great about to happen with my own rebirth.”
“We’re also doing a completely notated version of ‘Timeless’ with an 80-piece orchestra and choir, and it’s a different beast. I also have an art show called ‘The Lost Tribes’ in September which takes my inspiration from around the world and indigenous cultures, and acknowledges where culture comes from today.”
