'Goldie's groundbreaking album 'Timeless' turns 25, and to celebrate Clifford Joseph Price - the pioneering producer and DJ announces new remixes of his seminal album track and classic 'Inner City Life'. Diverse yet crucially characteristic, each remix brings out distinctive qualities that undoubtedly accentuated the 1995 classic - an iconic collage of sounds that capture a fragmented and urbanized London in all it's magnificent musical forms. Binary State executes restraints towards the dramatic and subtle notes of the original interweaving the late Diane Charlemagne's expansive and powerful vocal performance with a rubbery tech-house journey. It's a tightly knit and perpetually driving reworking with a four-to-the-floor dancefloor pulse. Drum and Bass don dBridge is enlisted by Goldie himself to provide a seismic, unconstrained and at times amorphous remix; an uncompromising breakdown of the creative boundaries that we experienced in the 1995 original. Continually challenging a Drum & Bass records accepted norm, and the delicate eccentricities a classic remix opportunity provides, this year's package also embraces a poignant jazz rendition of 'Inner City Life'; a cover that provides not only smooth relief, but a timeless lust for the original masterpiece. The enduring profile of Goldie rose to incredible prominence during the Nineties through pivotal albums 'Timeless' and 'Saturnz Return', collaborations with everyone from David Bowie to KRS-One, and the launching of his (still operational) Metalheadz label. A complex debut album, 'Timeless' founded a new chapter in the history of the electronic genre originally reaching no. 7 in the UK charts and having since been celebrated for it's unique blend of sublime strings, beautiful atmospheres and sophisticated vocals.
