Gilles Peterson chats with Goldie

Following the year that marked the 20th anniversary of Goldie’s debut Timeless (Spotify) and in the wake of new material ahead, Gilles Peterson sits down with the Metalheadz founder to chat about past, present and future. The interview starts exploring the early musical influences, before heading over to more interesting topics such as meeting (and learning from) Marc Mac and Dego, his thoughts on producers such as Flying Lotus or Burial, the differences between the drum & bass and the broken beat scene, and –inevitably– the making of “Timeless” and the orchestral reinterpretation by the Heritage Orchestra last summer (see video below!) Over two hours of talk and music, leaving you with the wish for more!

Metalheadz Sunday Sessions

Like Ben UFO, I’ve never been to the Metalheadz Sunday Sessions at London’s Blue Note club, which took place between 1995 and 1998. In my case, it’s rather bitter realizing I bought the first Platinum Breakz compilation whilst in London back in the summer of ’96, so I actually had a fair chance and blew it.

Anyway, Metalheadz uploaded a VHS rip documenting those days to their YouTube channel, “featuring a whole heap of familiar faces and a DJ Set from Grooverider”, not to mention the fancy 3D renderings. On top of that, make sure to check out several recordings from the Blue Note on the Metalheadz SoundCloud page.
