Dave Pearce meets DJ, label boss and artist, Goldie, who talks about his life in dance music.

Goldie was introduced to drum & bass and jungle by DJ Kemistry and production duo 4hero back in 1991 and went on to work for their Reinforced record label. Fast forward four years and his seminal 1995 debut album, Timeless (signed to Pete Tong's FFRR label) went straight to number 7 in the album charts. It became a groundbreaking release in the dance genre and spawned the iconic track Inner City Life.

In this special 6 Mix programme, Goldie talks to Dave Pearce about the music that has inspired his career and his own releases. He also talks about his graffiti projects in late 1980s New York, and his experience founding one of the biggest jungle and drum & bass labels, Metalheadz.
