Goldie: Judge Dread

David Bennun, Melody Maker, 5 August 1995

GOLDIE is being called the Jimi Hendrix of jungle, the charismatic centre of an extraordinary new music. His debut album, Timeless, is a hugely inventive, state-of-the-art, modernist masterpiece. What Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Vol 1 and Tricky's Maxinquaye did for techno and trip hop, Timeless will do for drum 'n' bass — make it an essential part of all our lives. DAVID BENNUN meets jungle's first superstar — the former petty criminal and graffiti artist with apocalyptic visions of the future.
