All Things Remembered
November 2nd 2017, £18.99 hardback
A whirlwind, charged and unsparingly candid memoir from the godfather of urban rave.
All Things Remembered is the story of the man born Clifford J. Price in Walsall in 1965, who started out as jungle’s most streetwise ambassador and went on to collect an MBE from Buckingham Palace. But Goldie’s uncensored, wise and hard-hitting memoir is far more than just the story of the house-training of drum ‘n’ bass. As one of Britain’s most influential DJs, producers and record-label
owners, Goldie’s contributions to the UK rave scene in the 1990s with Metalheadz provided the frenetic blueprint for the UK’s defining genres in the twenty-first century, dubstep and grime. This gonzo memoir, told in 52 chapters (one for each of Goldie’s 52 years), is a remix of an extraordinary life that has been lived as a vertiginous thrill-ride: from the darkest depths of the West Midlands care-home system to the snowiest uplands of coke-crazed international celebrity. It is an explosive story of abuse, revenge, graffiti, breakdancing, gold teeth, sawn-off shotguns, car crashes, hot yoga, absent fatherhood, and redemption through reality TV – all told in the relentlessly charismatic register of the man himself.
