Le Noir KL presents GOLDIE, 30th April
Le Noir KL presents the return of the iconic music pioneer, drum’n’bass icon, DJ and producer GOLDIE (Metalheadz) on Labour Day Eve (APRIL 30) in Club Lounge.
Goldie’s career to date is unparalleled. He is a pioneering DJ, songwriter, producer, and visual artist, as well as an actor and orchestral composer and conductor: a modern-day renaissance man. In 2012, he was selected as one of the BBC’s “New Elizabethans”: a selection of 60 people – including David Hockney, Roald Dahl, David Bowie and Tim Berners-Lee – who have helped shape British culture during the reign of Elizabeth II. Four years later, he was awarded the MBE in the Queen’s New Year Honours.
Goldie is also one of only a handful of artistes ever to co-write with David Bowie – on the track Truth from the drum‘n’bass pioneer’s second album, Saturnz Return. The album also featured distinguished collaborators such as Noel Gallagher and KRS-One.
Thirty years it has been since he started his journey and now news is out that his new album The Journey Man is due for release on June 16. The album comprises two parts, with 16 brand new tracks all written and produced by Goldie, featuring a host of collaborations handpicked by the man himself. The lead single from the album I Adore You (Goldie vs Ulterior Motive) is already out on Spotify.
Collaborators on The Journey Man album include vocalist and songwriter Natalie Duncan, who was discovered when chosen in the three-part BBC series Goldie’s Band By Royal Appointment and later provided the vocals for Goldie’s 2012 single ‘Freedom’. Other featured vocalists on the album include Terri Walker, Tyler Lee Daly, Natalie Williams, José James, Naomi Pryor as well as Goldie’s wife, Mika Wassenaar Price.
Goldie is self creativity, new life, mystical union; otherwise known as alchemy and he’s coming back in Malaysia for the third time in the last eight months for a now almost regular appearance at Le Noir KL.
Once again, as he has done so many times when Goldie visits Malaysian shores, Malaysian dum’n’bass veteran DJ Low and DJ Mac of Loops Collective will feature on support.
