July 31st, 2020 marked the 25-year anniversary of Goldie‘s debut album, Timeless. The British drum and bass innovator has announced plans to unload a “Timeless Capsule” of commemorative content through the rest of the year.
Goldie (real name Clifford Joseph Price MBE) kicked things off with a remix of “Inner City Life” by Peshay available for free download, along with the first part of an exclusive interview on Timeless with BBC Radio 1 host Pete Tong. Price promises “loads more exclusive content” to come in the months to follow.
The Timeless Music of Goldie
When Price released Timeless in 1995, he likely didn’t know how apt of a title he chose for the 14-track effort. Fusing breakbeats with symphonic elements, it made a strong case for the mainstream potential of drum and bass. The album started at #7 on the UK Albums Chart, and “Inner City Life,” which featured the late Diane Charlemagne, reached #39 on the UK Singles Chart.
Music aside, Price’s creative musings have manifested in a number of different forms. Prior to his career as a recording artist, he was part of a breakdance crew and spent time in the U.S. selling grills and making a name for himself as a graffiti artist.
