In this podcast, recorded from his event at the London Literature Festival, the musician, DJ, visual artist and actor, Goldie, reads extracts from his book All Things Remembered and looks back on his eclectic life.
An iconic figure who has long existed on the cusp of UK underground culture, Goldie’s contributions to the uk rave scene in the 1990s helped define jungle. As he releases his hard-hitting and intimate new memoir, All Things Remembered, Goldie talks candidly about his tumultuous life and career with the book’s co-writer Ben Thompson.
In the book Goldie charts his life and career, from growing up in the West Midlands home-care system, to the heights of international fame and DJ stardom. He also reflects on the lifespan of a musical genre, and how a countercultural movement came to be gentrified.
