Clifford Price, better known as Goldie, can be hard to pin down. While he is most well-known for being a pioneer of the U.K.'s jungle and drum and bass music movements as well as owner and founder of one of drum and bass' most storied and respected labels, Metalheadz, he is also an actor (appearing in the movies Snatch and The World Is Not Enough) and visual artist.
More than 20 years after he started making music, he is still very busy. His label notched its 100th release last year, which featured a track from Goldie himself. He is still as in demand as ever as a DJ, and his current North American tour includes a stop at First Avenue as the headliner of the latest edition of Woody McBride's First Avenue consuming mega-party, Bassgasm 9.
Gimme Noise connected with Goldie via telephone ahead of his appearance at Bassgasm 9 to discuss his music, his label, and what fans can expect at First Avenue on Saturday.
