In discussing his forthcoming best-of compilation, The Alchemist, we mentioned how a new Goldie track was featured on the massive three-disc compilation, and MistaJam got the exclusive world premiere on his BBC Radio 1Xtra show. After a lengthy interview (running over nine minutes) where Jam and Goldie discuss how electronic music has grown and is consumed today, we get to hear the 2013 sound that Goldie’s coming with, and it’s definitely inspiring.
He hasn’t lost his knack for building mini-worlds within his tunes, with the epic intro (featuring vocalist Jade) setting you up for the intense beauty. We have all of the signature Metalheadz vibes running through it, from the intergalactic stabs to the random breaks running back and forth, and Goldie even brings in some jazzy horns to help set the tone. We’re not building with huge drops or dark beats, just an uplifting edginess that truly sets Goldie apart from the rest of the pack. Still a pioneer, always an innovator.
