Goldie: see the King of the Jungle live on his UK tour
Godfather of drum and bass and king of jungle beats, Goldie remains one of the most electrifying live DJs in Britain. Make sure you grab your Goldie tickets at StubHub now for the chance to see a legend in action.
Originally working under the name Metalheadz, Goldie played a vital part in the development of jungle music. His intense breakbeats and innovative mixing techniques created a sound that had never been heard before. Born as Clifford Joseph Prince, Goldie quickly became a legend in the urban culture before getting involved in music. He was a dedicated B-boy and one of Britain's most prolific graffiti artists, as documented in the documentary Bombing by Afrika Bambaataa.
Goldie achieved serious fame through his acting work. First, he appeared in the movie The World Is Not Enough as a menacing henchman, facing up against James Bond. Later he appeared in Guy Ritchie's Snatch, before confusing a whole generation of clubbers by rocking up in famed soap Eastenders. Since then he's appeared on several reality shows including Celebrity Big Brother and Strictly Come Dancing. Despite his mainstream television success, he remains one of the most in-demand DJs around, regularly headlining infamous clubs such as Fabric. When Jungle finally exploded, Goldie rode the wave of that success, quickly becoming known to audiences even beyond those who listened to drum and bass. He offered a counterpoint to the late '90s Cool Britannia of Blur and Oasis, and provided a space for Urban fans.
Goldie got his name because of his famous gold teeth, right? Actually, wrong. The nickname dates back to his early days as a breakdancer before he started wearing a grill. He had long, flowing dreadlocks that earned him the nickname Goldilocks, which was shortened after he cut his hair.
Goldie: Timeless proving timeless
For many critics, Timeless is rated as one of the best album of the '90s. An intelligent, beautiful, musically sophisticated album, Timeless revolves around the seminal track "Inner City Pressure," a 21-minute monster that almost single-handedly brought jungle into the mainstream, and convinced 90s critics that you didn't need guitars to make incredible music.
