Goldie is coming to Colston hall in late November, to play live alongside Heritage Orchestra as well as special guests.

 

One of the biggest and most iconic names in jungle and drum and bass, Goldie likely needs no introduction.

 

Starting his career in the early 90’s, he helped transform the original jungle scene.

 

His first album release ‘Timeless’, features a mix of jungle and drum & bass formed in to deeply melodic and sensual tunes.

 

Check out one of its stand out tracks ‘Inner City Life’ an extended track of 21 minutes.

 

If you have never heard it before it may well change your perception of the drum and bass genre.

Not only has this dnb tour de force co-created the famous Metalheadz record label he has a string of other eclectic talents to his name.

 

He played a part in the early 90’s graffiti scene in Birmingham as well as the US.

 

On screen performances include James Bond’s ‘The World is Not Enough’, ‘Snatch’ and ‘EastEnders’.

 

He even has an OBE (Order of the British Empire) for services to music and young people.

 

He has had a close link to the orchestral world which will feature on the night at Colston Hall.

 

A programme for the BBC called ‘Classic Goldie’ was created around the concept of him learning to read and write classical music from scratch.

 

This, as well as the symphonic influences that occur in much of his work, will be coming together as he plays alongside the Heritage Orchestra.

 

We can expect much of his varied past discography as well as tracks off his most recent album ‘The Journey Man’.

 

Expect an incredible performance like nothing you’ve ever seen before and from one of the most incredible drum and bass producers of all time.
