MOBO Award-winning songwriter, DJ, producer, visual artist and actor Goldie's new triple album The Journey Man comprises two parts and 16 brand new tracks in total, all written and self-produced. It also features a host of collaborators handpicked by Goldie to help realize his vision for the album including vocalists Natalie Duncan, Terri Walker, Tyler Lee Daly, Natalie Williams, José James, Naomi Pryor and wife, Mika Wassenaar Price.
The maverick innovator – who rewrote the future of the jungle scene with landmark releases has a unique story to tell. From children's homes in the West Midlands through stints in New York and Miami as one of the UK's most celebrated exponents of graffiti art to rubbing shoulders with an exceptional list of musical collaborators including David Bowie, Noel Gallagher and KRS One, Goldie has always been one of a kind.
Goldie says: "I often look at music not so much as a producer but like a director. You're drawing together engineers, performers and arrangers to create something special, something magical. It's like alchemy. The notes, the music, the lyrics, they're all in my head and each element has to be communicated and brought to life to create the finished track. I'm always inspired by great movie directors – people like Stanley Kubrick and PT Anderson – and, if you think about it, it's quite a similar approach. They start off with a vision and then they use that vision to deploy the actors and the cameramen and the editors in order to create the finished film."
