Alchemist, innovator, maverick. In his extraordinary, one-of-a-kind career, Goldie has set himself dizzyingly high standards. From shaping the contours of the drum'n'bass scene with his early releases - including the bona fide masterpiece of his 1995 debut album Timeless - through collaborations with David Bowie, Noel Gallagher and KRS-One to his classical debut at the Royal Albert Hall with Sine Tempore in 2009, he has pursued a laser-guided focus on breaking new ground and pushing forward into the future. Along the way, he also found time to set up a game-changing record label, Metalheadz, and a legendary club night of his own.
So it’s fitting that this 21st century renaissance man has chosen Ronnie Scott’s as the venue for two extra-special evenings. A first for an electronic dance music producer in a setting that will be bring an intimacy to his Timeless Orchestral shows and that classic album. Following in the footsteps of jazz giants like Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard and Chick Corea, Goldie will bring his trail-blazing live ensemble to the iconic Soho club for only the second time ever.
“These new arrangements reflects the most honest, and bold, insight into who I really am,” says Goldie, “and where my heart wants to be.”
Onstage at Ronnie Scott’s, Goldie will be joined by members of the Heritage Orchestra – who helped bring the landmark Timeless album to life in an incendiary show at London’s Festival Hall in 2015, under the direction of Chris Wheeler.
Live, this is an experience not to be missed. Mixmag described Goldie’s 2015 shows as “mindblowing” … his 2017 shows in London’s most iconic jazz club, promise to go even further.
