Goldie – The Journey Man
27 June 2017 New Releases
Goldie has released a new album entitled The Journey Man out now via Cooking Vinyl and Goldie’s Metalheadz label. The 16-track set includes contributions from vocalists Natalie Duncan, Terri Walker, Tyler Lee Daly, Natalie Williams, José James, Naomi Pryor, and Goldie’s wife Mika Wassenaar Price. It follows Goldie’s 2013 3xCD compilation The Alchemist: The Best of Goldie 1992-2012, which marked the producer’s 20th anniversary in music.
In a press release, Goldie says he took a directorial approach in constructing the album:
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.
