Masterpiece is undoubtedly the most prestigious DJ led series on Ministry of Sound. With predecessors that include David Rodigan, Gilles Peterson and Andrew Weatherall, it's a concept that showcases the most influential DJs of our time. The series allows it's curator to build a selection of tracks that represent their inspirations both before and during their musical careers.
As an artist, actor and musician, Goldie's talents are vast and his music career undisputed. Having sold more than 3 million records worldwide to date, he is often cited as an influential contributor to the field of drum and bass. 20 years ago he spawned the ever successful drum and bass label, Metalheadz and created the far-famed 'Metalheadz Sunday Sessions' club night, which achieved legendary status at London’s Blue Note club, going down in history as one of drum & bass' most important club nights. Since then he has stretched his wings working on a range of projects including writing music for an orchestra.
Broken down into 3 discs titled The Alpha, Journeyman and Headzville, Goldie takes us on a journey from early inspirations such as Junior Murvin, Terry Callier, Serious Intention and Soul II Soul through to drum and bass classics from the likes of Zero B, Nookie, Egyptian Empire and Roni Size. Disc 3 is a showcase of some of the crème de la crème of producers signed to Goldie's own label Metalheadz, including dBridge, Commix, Jubei and more.
As an added way of saying thank you to all his fans, a selection of tracks will be available on a 12 inch triple vinyl, handpicked by Goldie.
