GOLDIE - SATURNZRECTUM - 2xLP
Goldie's 1995 debut album 'Timeless' changed the face of music culture. Bringing the nascent drum and bass scene to the masses, the album careered into the Top 10, hit a number of album-of-the-year polls and earned enthusiastic praise from David Bowie. Goldie became a star in the process. But while everyone was eagerly anticipating a repeat of the 'Timeless' formula, Goldie had other ideas. Instead, he pushed his creativity to the max and released 'Saturnz Return'. Brave, innovative, experimental and bursting with emotion, the two-disc 150-minute album proved to be one of the most bold and divisive sets in history. Yet twenty years on, his vision is thoroughly vindicated. His innovative blend of beats and orchestration has been emulated by everyone from Carl Craig to Pete Tong. 'Saturnz Return' is now ready for a long overdue critical appraisal when the '21st Anniversary Edition' is released via London Records.
