Goldie To Take INCredible Sound Of Drum 'N' Bass On Road

Renowned DJ will kick off outing April 1 in Detroit, hit East and West coasts.

British beat maestro Goldie will visit the States for a two-week tour in April.

The outing will begin April 1 in Detroit and take the renowned DJ and producer

to the East Coast before heading west, wrapping up at Club Utopia in Las Vegas,

according to Columbia Records.

A huge presence in the British breakbeat jungle scene since the mid-'90s, Goldie

gained popularity in the U.S. with the release of 1995's critically acclaimed

Timeless. His follow-up, 1998's Saturnz Return, featured the

hour-long "Mother" and a collaboration with Oasis' Noel Gallagher on "Temper

Temper" (

Goldie's latest release, the two-disc INCredible Sound of Drum 'n' Bass Mixed

by Goldie features two and a half hours of frantic remixes of cuts by

various drum & bass luminaries, such as Grooverider, Doc Scott and Alex Reece,

as well as his own tracks, including "Manslaughter" (

his live DJ sets.

The drum & bass Wunderkind also has a burgeoning film career. James Bond fans

may recognize Goldie from his recent turn as a villain in "The World Is Not

Enough" (1999), and he starred with David Bowie in the British crime drama

"B.U.S.T.E.D." (1999).
