Video featuring The Heritage Orchestra giving Goldie’s Timeless album a reverential strings ‘n’ beats reworking
South London-born director Lyle Lindgren produced a short video of a must-see gig that few saw. It features interviews and footage of The Heritage Orchestra reinterpreting Goldie’s drum ‘n’ bass album Timeless*.
The 1995 recording was often preceded by the hackneyed adjective “seminal”, but in this case Timeless was. Clifford Joseph Price’s LP was hugely influential.
The video (above) focuses on the album’s best-known track, Inner City Life, a 20-year-old song that still sounds fresh.
*A performance that was part of James Lavelle’s Meltdown festival at the Royal Festival Hall in London
