We’re excited to welcome the drum’n’bass legend Goldie to Festival No.6 for the first time, for a ‘Journey Man’ DJ set, a separate drum’n’bass DJ set and a fascinating talk with Mary Anne Hobbs.
Goldie’s new album The Journey Man, is released on 16 June via Cooking Vinyl and Goldie’s Metalheadz label. The 16-track set will include contributions from vocalists Natalie Duncan, Terri Walker, Tyler Lee Daly, Natalie Williams, José James, Naomi Pryor, and Goldie’s wife Mika Wassenaar Price. It follows Goldie’s 2013 3xCD compilation The Alchemist: The Best of Goldie 1992-2012, which marked the producer’s 20th anniversary in music.
Goldie says: ‘I often look at music not so much as a producer but like a director. You’re drawing together engineers, performers and arrangers to create something special, something magical. It’s like alchemy. The notes, the music, the lyrics, they’re all in my head and each element has to be communicated and brought to life to create the finished track. I’m always inspired by great movie directors – people like Stanley Kubrick and PT Anderson – and, if you think about it, it’s quite a similar approach. They start off with a vision and then they use that vision to deploy the actors and the cameramen and the editors in order to create the finished film.’
