Produced by radio supremo Paul Thomas, the documentary deals with Goldie’s difficult upbringing before dealing with his rise to success as drum & bass’s highest profile ambassador. The documentary includes contributions from Fabio, Marc Mac from 4Hero/Reinforced, Pete Tong — who signed Goldie to London Records for his acclaimed ‘Timeless’ album — and others. Mostly, however, it is Goldie telling his own story.
As well as being a DJ, producer and record label head (Metalheadz), Goldie is also an acclaimed artist and actor. His appearance on Maestro, learning to conduct an orchestra alongside various other celebrities, thrust him firmly into the consciousness of mainstream UK — hence being profiled in a Radio 4 documentary, generally the preserve of ‘high culture’.

An exploration of the movement that redefined British urban music: jungle. The programme charts the rise and fall of this iconic scene and features Fabio & Grooverider, DJ Hype, Kenny Ken, Brockie and more.
In October 2010, leading Japanese electronics company Panasonic announced that the legendary and symbolic Technics 1200 would no longer be sold. As one of the most iconic pieces of DJ equipment ever made the announcement to cease distribution was yet another blow for analogue enthusiasts the world over.
For turntable-fanatics we’ve seen technology advance expeditiously and that’s not to say there are no benefits to the digitalisation of music – there are plenty, it’s of course great for music at large. However we feel that there’s a place for vinyl and the traditional DJ’ing and turntablism is too – and this is where we feel the Technics SL 1200s are vital. After all, vinyl sales have been rising year on year for some time now having a recent resurgence, so quality equipment should surely be available to play records with.
Since originally launching in 1972, Panasonic have sold around 3.5 million of the Technics SL-1200 model turntables and with the demand for Vinyl steadily rising, I Want to launch a petition to see how many other music enthusiasts feel the same. If you’d like to support the movement, join the petition to bring the Technics SL 1200 back into production !
