The drum and bass icon will compile the latest edition in our prestigious Masterpiece series.

Goldie, musician, drum and bass icon, actor and artist, has been on the scene for over 20 years and counting. With over 3 million records sold worldwide to date and a host of prestigious accolades under his belt, he is the perfect talent to front the next album in the prized ‘Masterpiece’ series from Ministry of Sound out for release 18th August.

After twenty years on the dance music scene, 3 million records sold worldwide and a host of accolade under his belt, we couldn't think of anyone better to front the next album in our prized Masterpiece series. 

The Masterpiece concept is an opportunity for dance music pioneers and DJs of the highest calibre to curate a three disc musical journey that depicts their own influence and inspirations, to share with their fans. With previous editions coming in from David Rodigan, Andrew Weatherall, Giles Peterson and Fabio and Grooverider, the pedigree of the series is irrefutable. 

Broken down into three discs titled ‘The Alpha’, ‘Journeyman’ and ‘Headzville’, Goldie takes us on a journey from early inspirations such as Junior Murvin, Terry Callier, Serious Intention and Soul II Soul through to drum and bass classics from the likes of Zero B, Nookie, Egyptian Empire and Roni Size. Disc 3 is a showcase of some of the crème de la crème of producers signed to Goldie’s own label Metalheadz, including dBridge, Commix, Jubei and more.

Masterpiece is due for release on 18th August.
