Goldie’s groundbreaking album ‘Timeless’ today turns 25, and to celebrate Clifford Joseph Price, the pioneering producer and DJ better known as Goldie announces a ‘Timeless Capsule’, set to be active for the remainder of the anniversary year.
The website and portal will explore and celebrate a masterpiece of an album that since its release on 31st July 1995 remains foundational to the evolution of British dance music and will include exclusive access to interviews with collaborators, unseen 1995 footage, archival photography and much more to come.
Subscribers to the website will initially be given download access to both the Peshay Remix of “Inner City Life” and an exclusive interview between Goldie and Pete Tong who originally signed the record to his label FFRR back in the mid 90’s.
The campaign will also see entirely re-mastered and re-packaged 25-year anniversary Vinyl, CD and digital editions of the album released. More news of this to come towards the end of 2020.
Goldie who rose to incredible prominence during the Nineties through pivotal albums Timeless and Saturnz Return, collaborated with everyone from David Bowie to KRS-One and launched 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 charts and has since been celebrated for its unique blend of sublime strings, beautiful atmospheres and sophisticated vocals. Inarguably an ambitious blueprint at the time; Goldie’s production in 1995 fashioned the edgy rhythms and bass of jungle into a newly futuristic model, now globally admired as drum & bass.
To celebrate the milestone, the music video “Inner City Life” that features vocals by British singer Diane Charlemagne, has been painstakingly digitally remastered from the original negatives and can be viewed below:
