Goldie: Metal Guru
David Toop, The Face, July 1995
Ten years ago, David Toop met a young graffiti artist named Goldie. "When I was a kid," he said, "I had nothing to look at but people in care and their care assistants. All these feelings I wanted to portray..." In 1995, Goldie is still trying to portray the same sentiments, but through sound rather than spray-paint. David Toop asks: is Goldie's music the true spirit of B-boy?
