.... and I am a lover of the music and what Bailey already has achieved is admirable... I love Goldie's humor and it will sparkle all over IXta

Indeed... the head of the most iconic dnb movement deserves respect. As for the importance of black music, we have always had it, but being an OJ colour or creed means nothing, its the music that matters

WOW.Here's a guy who came from nothing, who had nothing, who no one probably, really gave a ish about in his youth. In that situation you either can go one of two ways really. Bounce in and out of prison for the rest of your life. Or make something of yourself. He choose that latter, and WHAT a legacy he's left so far in music, painting etc.. but don't take my word for it- look its right there in front of you - 9 glorious hours of it! If you don't find that inspiring, you must be dead.

In charge of 1Xtra ! that would be awsome !!Listening DnB since early 90's, I think of Goldie as someone who took this music to an other level alike 4hero. He brought the some of best DnB beats along with great composition. Both "Timeless" and "Saturn Return" are Must have albums. Cheers from Paris..
