Goldie has always pushed the envelope in everything he's ever done.
The drum 'n' bass pioneer never looks back, forever obsessed with the future, with remaining at the cutting edge of technology.
Pairing with fellow production legend James Davidson, the pair make music as Subjective, a project that exceeds even their lofty catalogues.
New album 'Act One – Music For Inanimate Objects' will be released on January 18th, and it's a hugely ambitious project in every respect.
New song 'Re-Entry' is a sign of what to expect: blistering electronics, surging melodies, and a rhythmic sense honed by thousands of raves across the planet.
“I’ve always been a fighter with music and gone way ahead of the curve in a lot of respects”, says Goldie. “I’ve come from an era that’s spanned three decades from the 80’s to now, and I think I’ve always pushed a progressive drum‘n’bass, sound. But this is a refined album, one that you can really fall into, immerse yourself in, or just play in the background - and it still works.”
David Wexler from Strangeloop studios has crafted the stunning visuals, the perfect counterpoint to music that blasts defiantly into the unknown.
Strangeloop have credits with Bonobo and Flying Lotus, and their experience turns the video into a glimpse of the future.
David Wexler from Strangeloop comments...
Working on these music videos for Subjective has been a dream collaboration for us at Strangeloop Studios. We felt honored that Goldie and James trusted us enough to give us a large amount of creative license, and we were excited to find that our philosophies and aesthetic sensibilities were very much in sync.
Vibrant conversations with Goldie informed our initial approach, and the tunes themselves pushed us to reflect their fusion of innovation and homage. We wanted to invoke the subliminal barrage of sacred forms that appeared to us when listening to the music, resulting in a free-form yet tightly calculated embodiment of the music, as viewed through the Strangeloop Studios lens.
Tune in now.
