Goldie presents... TIMELESS

Goldie presents... TIMELESS

Witness the drum and bass icon's seminal album performed live by full orchestra, duelling drummers, and choir.

Named by The Guardian as one of the fifty most significant events in the history of dance music, Timeless is a truly landmark album. Globally released in 1995, 'Timeless' was the first drum and bass album to enter the UK top ten, and the seminal track 'Inner City Life' continues to attract and inspire listeners all over the world.

20 years on, and still as fresh, this new orchestral production of Goldie's 'Timeless' is an exciting step forward in the history of this ground-breaking album.  Expanded with a string section, brass, winds, and a small choir, the orchestra sits behind a nucleus of drummers and synths with the man himself onstage. This concert is an impressive recreation that in many ways transcends the original, with the sounds and beats prepared with unnerving precision, played totally live, and delivered with furious energy.  A rare production that is both nostalgic and futuristic at the same time.

the ranks of strings, horns and singers floated their way through the album's spaced-out atmospherics while a massive percussion section and two sweat-soaked drummers recreated Goldie's impossibly-complex unstinting breakbeats
