Goldie is an iconic figure whose contributions to the UK rave scene in the 1990s defined jungle. Now releasing a hard-hitting and intimate new memoir, hear Goldie candidly explore his tumultuous life and career.

In his new book, Goldie charts the full span of his life and career, from 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.

Has the world that gave rise to jungle and rave changed beyond recognition? Or does the energy and subversiveness of those genres live on somewhere?

Hear Goldie answer this and more as he scales the rise and fall of jungle, and touches on his own experiences of abuse, revenge, graffiti, gold teeth, sawn-off shotguns, car crashes, hot yoga, absent fatherhood, and redemption through reality TV.
