Goldie - Inner City Life 2020
12” EP in mirror board sleeve
Goldie's groundbreaking album Timeless turns 25, to celebrate, Goldie releases new remixes of his seminal album track and classic Inner City Life. Each remix brings out distinctive qualities that undoubtedly accentuated the 1995 classic - an iconic collage of sounds that capture a fragmented and urbanized London. Binary State executes restraints towards the dramatic and subtle notes of the original interweaving the late Diane Charlemagne’s expansive and powerful vocal performance with a rubbery tech-house journey. It’s a tightly knit and perpetually driving reworking with a the four-to-the-floor dancefloor pulse. Drum and Bass don dBridge is enlisted by Goldie to provide a seismic, unconstrained and at times amorphous remix; an uncompromising breakdown of the creative boundaries that we experienced in the original. Continually challenging a Drum and Bass records accepted norm, and the delicate eccentricities a classic remix opportunity provides, this year’s package also embraces a poignant jazz rendition of Inner City Life; a cover that provides not only smooth relief and timeless lust for the original masterpiece.
