Goldie's Timeless (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


It's 1994, and the London drum 'n bass scene is evolving at an exciting, breakneck pace. The record that brought it all to light was Goldie's Timeless. Deykers describes how the album came to be: a short description of the sparkling drum 'n bass scene of the time, and Goldie's unlikely personal journey as a graffiti writer turned music wunderkind. It digs deeper into the music itself, analyzing several of the key tracks, uncovering highly autobiographical lyrical content but also looking at plenty of interesting sonic ideas that reference Goldie's previous music and that of his peers, hip hop, graffiti culture and movies.

From the beautifully epic radio hit "Innercity Life" to the darker, grimier textures of "Jah the Seventh Seal", the album covers a wide array of emotions and musical ideas. Goldie recently revived some of the music for an orchestra tour, keeping the music alive and well to this day. Finally the book explores the global impact of this album and its place in the canon of UK dance music alongside artists such as Massive Attack, Tricky, Roni Size, The Orb and Portishead.
