Inner City Life (2020 Remix EP)
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 and timeless lust for the original masterpiece. Alongside the relaxed silhouette of the re:jazz cover, both the original radio edit and Roni Size’s legendary remix that donned the tracks initial 12” is entirely re-mastered.
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 charts and 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.
